As anticipated, the reveal of the DK-44 102BB Optimus Prime DNA Design Upgrade Kit would be a big one. There is always a challenge to get the movies toys right at retail, but they are often over simplified and or don't match what we saw on screen due to running changes.
In this case, it feels like both as the 102BB figure just looks off with the huge smokestacks, strange trailer bed, puny guns, and other issues. DNA Design have addressed most of the issues with a sizable update pack. This kit brings this toy much closer to the movie Prime with new stacks, feet, weapons, blast effects, and even an Exo-Suit Noah mini-figure. The one down side is its going to cost almost as much as the figure itself. Look for the DNA Design DK-44 Upgrade Kit to ship in November 2023 for about $44 USD from the following sponsor links, where available:
So they changed this and WFC Optimus based on fan feedback but not anything else.
Seriously, SG Wheelie should be done up like Full Tilt like everyone has said yet they won't change it. They also didn't change the heads on TM2 Megatron that weren't any more accurate than the stock head. Or done any other changes. Their kits are all on discount now and nobody is buying them outside of a select few actually decent sets like the Grimlock set. Yet I was told I was the crazy one for pointing out all the flaws in their kits for the past two years while claiming that nobody was going to buy them. Which has all come to pass. Go figure. I know I come off like an old man yelling at clouds but pretty much everything I've complained about from a great many things has come true.
That makes me a profit...I mean prophet. No I was right the first time. I'm a profit prophet. If you listen to my prophecies you will turn a profit. If you don't all your shit will hit clearance and nobody will buy it even then.
