Would it be sacrilegious of me to say I've always hated Bumblebee? Dunno why, he's just always seemed like a boring wimp. That being said, I'd still have to own this when it becomes available. The Masterpiece line has become the Gold Standard in Transformers. I wonder how tall he will be? Will he be in line withe MP's of Prowl, Sideswipe and Smokescreen?

nah, he was a bit annoying in G1, and having him shoved in our faces in the last seven years hasn't done him any favours.

But love him or hate him, he's a necessity in the MP line.

This guy is worse than 3rd parties with his tweets. Next it will be a silhouette from the back or a different angle.

I said it about Prowl, but it's even more true in this case:

Dude, his feet are huge! :shock:


I mean, look at 'em, they're the same size as his entire torso!

Unless this mold is decked out to the nines and has the most detailed bug interior in the history of Volkswagen Bug toys then I say no way am I forking out $75.00+ for an MP Bee with Clown Feet and that is probably half the size of the other MP cars for aesthetic reasons. :SICK: . I saw the silhouette and all I could think of is those stupid Takara Disney Transformers...Slap a Mickey or Donald head on this lame duck and let's move on to bigger and better things.

Reluctantyouth is obviously not a GeeWunner... :P

The fact that it's a Volkswagon Beetle, alone, has most of us over 38 years old or so just about going happynuts in our seats.

Looks great to me including the feet. I am not sure what people are expecting the feet to look like for a VW Beetle. His feet are even toon accurate.

I guess it's official now. I've updated the title of this topic to the official discussion for this figure. Let's try to keep all future teasers, images, info regarding him to this topic.

LOL, not really much of a surprise! Looks exactly like it should!

You think this is one that Hasbro might get for the U.S. (TRU) market, since Hasbro loves Bumblebee so much?

I just hope it can beat the 3rd party competitors.
