Another figure we got our first look at during the Shizuoka Hobby Show recently was the extensive repaint of MPM-3 Bumblebee for the new 40th Selection imprint, abbreviated as TF40A (Transformers 40th Anniversary) for reasons only Takara Tomy could answer. TF40A Bumblebee doesn't appear to have any physical modifications but has fixed any and all color issues that the original had. The yellow is darker, the metallics are brighter and the painted details are more accurate. If you have the original MPM-3 you already know what you're getting into, but if you missed out on the previous releases and have any interest this will be the one to get. Since this new release "technically" isn't being sold as an MPM it probably wont be sold at Target.

He'll be released in March 2025 and IS available on Amazon Japan right now! He's currently only about $104 after shipping to the USA there and that's before they've worked their discount magic so he should cost considerably less by release thanks to their "pre-order price guarantee".

And as a reminder, our next figure in the line will be TF40A Lio Convoy!

Ready to part with your MPM-3 or add a new figure to your Bumblebee army, or maybe take the plunge into MPMs? Let us know in the Seibertron Energon Pub!

The silvers look nice but I think I like the yellow and black more.
