Shut up and take my money :ic$: ...this I like. I'm glad I didn't buy the original with Spike now. That little jetpack will look pretty slick.

If I didn't already spend 80$ on the g1 version this would be bought. I'll hold out for the possibility of goldbug/cliffjumper later down the line, probably as seperately numbered releases (though I would hope cliffjumper would be a significant retool into a squashed up porsche turbo along with a new head.)

Excellent. I prefer the toy faces for the minibots and if that jet-pack doesn't fit Sideswipe, I'll find a way.

so... anyone else wonder if he'll come with another exo suit? or just be by himself?

i think (simply based on BBTS's prices) that he'll be flying solo. their MP BB w/exo is $75, while their preorder for MP G2BB is $65 (and pictured solo anyways).

One that's a difference shade of gray/white from the rest of his body for maximum accuracy. :-B

Would have preferred an Exosuit Spike figure over the jet pack, but at least he comes with the battle mask this time.

A Bug Bite, who knows, maybe at Tokyo Toy Show or even e-Hobby like the original?

A brighter yellow with the same metallic coating could still make for a convincing Goldbug. Just give him a new head without the face gimmick and an Exo-Spike and I won't care if the vehicle mode looks a lot like the others.

I am kinda torn between having a G2 version or a proper Goldbug. Not sure which I want more.

I didn't intend for anyone to necessarily care, but since people were talking about Goldbug's head color, I thought it worth a mention.

Orders are open at Big in Japan. Marked way down 25% off to 4,125jpy or about US$35 or around US$41 shipped via SAL. This is why I always import my Japanese Transformers, there's no way I'm ever paying BBTS/TFS/RK prices.

Great reveal on Big in Japan Emerje. Those are stupid low prices. They offer G2 BB $50 with 4 day shipping. No way you can beat that. Thanks for spreading the word.

New MP-21G (G2) Bumblebee Images From Amazon.jp

Postby Autobot032 » Mon Jan 26, 2015 12:44 am

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
Thanks to fellow fan, Shajaki, we were directed to Amazon's listing for the upcoming Masterpiece MP-21G Bumble G2Ver. Back in the early 90's, Hasbro released Generation 2, which was a mix of repainted G1 molds, new and original molds, as well as a semi-cgi rehash of the original G1 series. Of those repainted G1 molds, Minicar Bumblebee was among the first to see release and he came along sporting a vacuum metalized (aka chrome) deco that made him all shiny, which you can see here.

TakaraTomy is homaging that G2 release with a metallic paint deco release of the MP-21 Bumblebee mold, with new accessories including a jetpack!

You can see the order page here and we've mirrored the images below:

Those silver faces (happy and serious) would look great on the standard MP Bumble.

Indeed, since Goldbug was more than a mere head remold and deco change of Bee's original body. He deserves his own mold. ;)
