Though, I'm a little saddened to see no pics of him in his super mode without the Star Saber helmet on, as he would occasionally walk around in the show in his super mode with his Saber head exposed like so:

It looks ridiculous because the head is so tiny on Saber.

Being a stupid human who just can't get no satisfaction, wish Tomy will also release a Jean/Daigoro figure or Illumina2 or Jean and Illumina. This figure is so near anime accurate that it screams for a "Cub" to complement "Lonewolf".

The battle up feature looks better in the original version

Other than the one backpack issue (which is pretty minor IMO) I have no issues. It's a damn solid figure and I haven't heard many complaints. Even the best figures out there have some kind of flaw.


Not a flaw but more on how to transform him properly. Trouble with not knowing Japanese I guess.Btw, among the many online reviewers, I found out that the "mini" sword hilt can be stored in the V-star (in the panel from which I mentioned the tendency to create a stress mark in not transformed carefully). I re-read the instruction manual and that feature was was never mentioned at all.

Nope. The clearance between the original Victory Leo parts are not compatible with the MP Star Saber

Yeah. I hear he can settle around and look combined, but nothing actually fits together.

New Gallery: Masterpiece MP-21G Bumble G-2 Ver (aka G2 Bumblebee)

Postby Mindmaster » Mon Aug 03, 2015 10:39 am

Weapon: Dark Saber Sword
Suddenly, a new gallery update appears! Today's Masterpiece subject hails from the first series after Generation One, Generation 2: Bumblebee! While not as shiny and blinded out as his precursor was, this figure fits right in for the G2 enthusiast along with Masterpiece G2 Sideswipe. In place of a Witwicky in an Exosuit, he instead comes with a jet pack accessory. If you're still in the fence on this guy, why not take the opportunity to take a look through our gallery?

I had two packages from them ... one shipped out by Monday last week. The other shipped out yesterday. Hopefully this is just a little blip. I liked it a lot better when something would arrive at HLJ Thursday, ship Friday and arrive at my house on Monday.

Tracking shows he has cleared customs in NY. Hoping he's here by the end of the week, 'cause I'm jonesing for some new bot action.

It looks to me like it's a sticker. In some of the close-up shots, you can see the edges of the sticker just visible.

I seem to recall from a video review that all his emblems are stickers, so if you choose you can put either the classic or the G2 on his flippy chest panel.

G2 Bumblebee was just a shiny version of himself? That's disappointing.

They're slowed down because of the mid-year sale.

My order shipped out Friday, and arrived today. :-P

All of the G1 molds in the G2 line were like that. Straight redecos, with or without new accessories.

^ Wasn't expecting anything other than a repaint, but with G2 Grimlock being blue, Sideswipe inverting his colors and adding electric green details, and both Megatron and the Combaticons sharing this bizarre purple camo theme, I thought Bumblebee would be something equally wild.

I agree. This should have been Goldbug with a new head with just plain gold paint.

New Gallery: Masterpiece MP-18B Bluestreak

Postby Va'al » Thu Sep 03, 2015 4:43 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We've just seen a batch of in-hand images for the latest redeco of the Nissan Fairlady Z mold from Takara Tomy - but why not take a look at Masterpiece MP-18B Bluestreak in all his glory in our new Seibertron.com galleries? The last (as far as we know) addition to the Datsun streak (heh) of characters, the figure shares the same basic mold as the first Streak and the Tokyo Toy Show 2014 exclusive Silverstreak, with some added Prowl parts for further accuracy - and is also actually blue, a callback to the rare Diaclone predecessor figure.

Any of the images below will take you to the full show, including comparisons with the toys mentioned above, multiple poses, the trademark under-the-foot shot, and much much more. Click away!
