- Figure was designed with ILM Movie CAD files from the Transformers: Bumblebee movie, featuring 10+ die cast parts and 150+ deco ops with 26 points of articulation, including highly articulated hands.
- Figure converts from robot to its officially licensed 1967 Volkswagen Beetle mode in 57 steps. Vehicle mode features exclusive, weathered deco.
- Figure features a detailed hidden missile bay on the figure’s chest. Comes with a removable battle mask and movie-inspired Stinger Blaster and Stinger Sword accessories that attach to the figure in both robot and vehicle modes.
Here is some additional product information from Amazon.com:
When Decepticons are on your tail, Bumblebee is the bot you want on your side. Behind the unassuming Volkswagen Beetle exterior is more than meets the eye. Full of youthful exuberance, he's often underestimated, but the courageous Autobot scout is always ready to jump into adventure and defend his friends at any cost.
The official Hasbro-Takara Tomy Masterpiece Movie Series Bumblebee MPM-7 figure is the perfect authentic figure for fans and collectors alike, with features inspired by Transformers: Bumblebee. The figure showcases the upbeat Autobot scout with impressive attention to detail. Imagine unleashing Bumblebee action with a removable battle mask, articulated hands, hidden missiles, and Stinger Blaster and Stinger Sword accessories. Converts from robot to 1967 Volkswagen Beetle mode in 57 steps.

I wasn't expecting knees, but I was expecting ball jointed shoulders since there's more than enough room for them and they've been a staple in figures this size for many years now, even Titan/Prime Masters have them. But no, his shoulders are just a simple swivel. He does have ball jointed elbows, but they don't offer much range. He also has ball jointed hips, but without knees they aren't really useful for articulation, just for the transformation. Bafflingly he does have an ab joint that doesn't serve any real purpose. It's used to give him a slight bend for his transformation to give clearance for his hips, but that could have been easily fixed by shaving down some of his sculpted details. The cost of the extra plastic and metal pin could have gone to knee joints or more paint. Interestingly all of his wheels are held on with big metal rivets rather than pegged on like has been popular lately. And he has six wheels even though it's pretty common for a figure this small to have a pair of fake wheels and I honestly wouldn't have minded. The whole figure just screams of miss-managed resources.
I had the exact same experience - bought all 4 Speed Series guys and Optimus was the worst of the group (I'd call Barricase the best, personally). If they'd just given him ball shoulders and swivel elbows instead of the other way around he'd be significantly better.
Just put in an Amazon order for MP VW Bee too. I already have an order with HLJ but I usually get backup preorders for things I really want from somewhere easy to cancel (Amazon, BBTS) in case something goes wrong with another order. Especially AmiAmi stuff, I just got in an order for Figuarts Super Buu the other day and accidentally ordered 3 because the pages were loading slowly and for some reason the "change quantity" button had disappeared. It's terrifying asking them to cancel anything because they're so prone to closing accounts for it.

That sounds about right. I don't meant to sound like I return a lot to them, but I do return things regularly. I also make an absurd amount of purchases from Amazon with Transformers and household items and things for my 2 kids, so it's just part the nature of the beast. They have always taken great care of me and I am happy to support Amazon! If you've had trouble with them, would love to help you figure out some of the issues you've had to make your experience with them more positive. I'm also wondering if those of you who have had trouble whether or not you are Amazon Prime members or not?

Question: Will the Bumblebee movie get a decent Generations toyline? Of about 8 figures?
Or are they only going to be in the Studio series?
I would love some Power of the Primes like Bumblebee toys, not too complex and all.

Studio Series is already part of the umbrella Generations line, so that's where those toys have already ended up: VW Bumblebee should already be out and helicopter mode Dropkick will come out later. Nothing on Shatter yet.

Fellow Seibertronian TFA1024 has shared his video review of the set - which includes redecos of a Bumblebee Turbo Changer figure from The Last Knight and three cassettes which all use molds from the previous Titans Return line for Buzzsaw, Howlback, and Decepticon Frenzy - and we've embedded the clip below for all to see. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

The images mirrored below contain a second look at Shatter in her jet and muscle car mode, in a size class different than the Titan Changer, but also potential confirmation that Blitzwing is indeed a triple changer, as we see him in here in a Megatron-esque tank mode! Plus, some more Optimus Prime, because why not. Check out the images below!

That optimus prime is correctly sold as a power series bumblebee classic camaro with mask and cannon is power series but with normal head and hands he is a power plus serieschuckdawg1999 wrote:I called it. That Optimus Prime is a repaint of the power plus figure without the engine. Blitzwing is the previously released Megatron with a new head. I doubt that's how it'll look in the movie.
