Bumblebee’s G1-Inspired Optimus Prime Model Kit Coming Soon

This June, Yolopark will be releasing a 12″ (30cm) tall Optimus Prime model kit based on his appearance in 2018’s Bumblebee. The more G1-inspired Prime, the better, I always say.
The kit will run you $209.99 over at the Big Bad Toy Store. It can also be pre-ordered directly from Yolopark for $888 HKD. That’s a lot of money for something you have to assemble yourself, but the level of detail on Prime may make it worth the price. What really sucks is that there’s almost no info about the kit aside from the dimensions and accessories.
How many parts do you have to assemble? Are there any light-up features? Is the Matrix of Leadership removable? Is glue required? Is paint required? Which parts are metal? Which parts are plastic?
What we do know is that Optimus will come with two weapons: his battle ax and his iconic blaster.

There are not a whole lot of dynamic poses in those photos. It makes me wonder just how articulated the model really is. He doesn’t appear to come with a stand, and I haven’t spotted any plugs on the model that would allow you to plug him into one.
I tried to find more information on this kit since the description at BBTS kinda sucked. The official page for Prime at Yolopark was no better. I did spot a video going over the completed model, but it’s not in English. Check it out below:

I could see plopping a couple hundred down for this model, but I need a lot of questions answered first; otherwise, there are other avenues I could go down if I really wanted a Bumblebee Prime.
What do you think of this pricey model kit? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.
