For those following what Takara has to offer in their version of the Dark Of The Moon toy line, then you'd know about the Chronicle packs. The two-packs will have a Movie figure, with their Generation One figure counterpart. The first set, Chronicle-01 features G1 Optimus Prime, with his Movie MechTech Deluxe counterpart. Chronicle-02 has Mechtech Voyager Megatron, and the original G1 Megatron.

Now Bumblebee fans rejoice! Transformers fans, veterans and rookies alike, will have a chance to own the Generation One Bumblebee figure, if not owned prior. Our insiders overseas say that Chronicle-03 will feature the Generation One yellow beetle, and to whom his movie-counterpart is was not identified. However, expect Movie-Bee to be in the Cyberverse or Deluxe class size.

I'm looking forward to these sets even though I own upteen different versions of G1 Megatron, Optimus, and Bumblebee. Hopefully the packaging is really awesome for sets of this nature. Here's hoping for Shockwave and Soundwave sets!

I'm looking forward to the Megatron set due to the fact that I still don't have a G1 Megatron in my collection.

Bumblebee will probably be the DOTM deluxe.

Now only one question remains about the G1 toy: Which G1 Bumblebee? ;)

Original?

Keychain?

New head?

Encore?

Hey hasbro this is why so many people like takara better than you, they do cool stuff like this instead of repainting the same mold 40 times. I really need to get a real G1 megatron, my KOs are good quality but they're not "real".

well, aside from the heads, exact colouring and faction logo placement, and the Keychain version's obvious addition of, well, a keychain, they're all the same. Since the picture there has a blue Megs with a sword, I wouldn't be surprised to see the original head, but I do like the newer cartoon-accurate one more I think. Leave Goldbug with the cool facemask, have Bee with his cheery grin.

We do. The Mini-Bot molds are readily available compared to the Pretenders, plus the Pretender versions aren't iconic enough, given their limited release there.

I'm really hoping the G1 Bumblebee has his original head, saves me the trouble of selling off another 'Bee should I get both Mini-Bot reissue sets. As for the Movie: Deluxe, definitely Deluxe.

Pre-ordered the 1st 2 Sets, hmm am gonna skip BB though, don't think I would like his DOTM counterpart with this set.

It's about time that someone thought of this!

I display all my classics with their G1 counterparts.

Here's hoping for Chronicle-04 being Screamer.

With Soundwave also being part of the various reissue lines just like Prime, Megatron anb Bumblebee, I'd say it's a safe bet that he'll be part of this line.

I really hoping that we do indeed get a Shockwave set, that would be awesome! :CON:

if hasbro does something like this, i hope they pair the DOTM figures with thier classics counterparts since hasbro dosnt handle g1 reissues as well as takara can. those may even make for nicer store exclusive items

I think that's where the smart money is. Still hope they do a Shockwave one though..... :CON:
