Float like a butterfly, sting like a gold bee.

One of the newest Takara Transformers, Animated TA-02 Bumblebee, has gotten into the hands of Japanese collector Raigers. We get pictures of the packaging in all of it's entirety and the figure itself in front of an Animated background. Major differences between the Hasbro version include the shiny paint job, the red Autobot Logo, and the black stripe in robot mode on the right of Bumblebee's chest. See the figure for yourself below.

My eyes! It shines with the strength of a thousand suns! :shock:

That's pretty damn awesome, though. I really wish I had got into Animated when I had the chance.

:edit: Japanese QA + Gold plastic = GPS all over again?

It's unlikely that it'll suffer from GPS, since the plastic itself is not gold but merely painted as such. What would most likely occur would be paint flaking.

Also, I'm disappointed with Takara that the stingers are still sticking out. Didn't they fix the problem already with the Elite Guard repaint?

Those are dangerous words around here - could start a flame war. :P

Thanks for the knowledge on the paint apps, though. I'm considering some animated figs for a bit of fun, but at the same time didn't want something nasty to happen later.

my Starscream/BB two pack shipped today with Cliffjumper, so should have them next week along with my monochrome Donald Duck.

BB looks different enough for me. Only other Takara stuff im getting is Arcee( as she will not be released in the UK) and Blackout as it seems Takara will be the only release for that mold now.
