Seibertron's own Den-O is has found some information regarding a new Henkei varient figure to be released in Japan.

According to a member of the Singapore based SGCollect boards, TakaraTomy will soon be releasing a variant of Henkei C-0X Bumblebee, in a paint scheme homage to 2008 Transformers Movie Bumblebee.

This piece will apparently be limited to only 500 pieces, and only to be released in Japan.

You can check out an image of the figure below, or in the original SGCollect forums, by clicking here.



Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more news on this figure as it comes to hand.

UPDATE: As it turns out, this was indeed an April Fools joke played a little early. This figure will not be released.

Front Paged and Credited, but I've added it to the "rumour" section until we have confirmation from Takara-Tomy or the retailer who'll be flogging these off.

Kinda reminds me more of Animated Bumblebee than the movie version.

Paint isn't great looking, and the toy pics aren't very legit looking.

I was expecting a few more people to like this, it doesn't look that bad. I prefer it to the previous two Bumblebee colour schemes. The black really goes superbly well with the yellow.

Looks okay, but totally unnecessary (for me anyway).

Looks exactly like the Classics version, they just swapped white with black. I'll pass. If they do a Prime with flames or grey/"realistic" painted Starscream, I'd buy them.

Underwhelming to say the least.

I'd pass too: just for the same reason I'm passing on most Henkei figures that aren't the G1-deco Megatron I already have. I prefer the G1-deco on Henkei Megatron over the Nerf-style deco of the American version, but the others don't do enough for me to be bothered with. This is what it is for C-0X Bumblebee for me. Besides: I already have both deluxe Movie Bumblebee molds; don't need a Classics Bumblebee repainted into Movie Bumblebee.

OH MY GOD!! IT LOOKS... exactly the same. I can kinda see where the micromaster drove over him and left tire tracks, but I wouldn't shell out however much it is for two black lines :\

The movie is done. Let's move on and stop repainting figures into characters that I would like to forget.

I liked movie Bumblebee. I agree that this is getting redundant though. I may pick up a couple more movie figures maybe (possibly a couple more of the Target exclusive basics, now that I know there's a Target reasonably close to where I live), but the line is for the most part dead otherwise.
