Fellow Seibertron.com user robotmel has pointed us towards the Planet Iacon Facebook fanpage, as they have uploaded a colour scan of the bottom half of a figure magazine - which shows off the upcoming Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-21 Bumblebee in his Volkswagen vehicle mode and Spike in the Excel Suit, both standing up and as the er- vehicle mode, too. Check out the image below, and here's hoping for the top half of the same page, too!

Seeing it in colour does improve it, but the swinging panel for the Autobot logo is... well... its nasty and unnecessary.

Yes a Beatle is about the exact same size as a Fairlady Z.

Good point. Back in the day my friend had a Datsun 280Z and I had a 1978 VW Super Beetle. Both were about the same size.

I thought the robots were the template for the scale, not the vehicles. But hey.

That Bumblebee... there's no more appropriate word to describe these toys other than "Masterpiece."

Wish we had an actual scan. Looks like there are more colour photos above.

Cool, the tire thing is removeable for those who don't like it.

Takara really knocked it out of the park with this one. He looks amazing. :)
