These images alone are what I needed to possibly decide on getting this. Sure he's a bit bigger than usual, and I already have two other movie bees, BUT they FINALLY got his chest bit right in a smaller figure. Not to mention the proportions and details are all there.

While I do think this looks fantastic the price just seems outrageous. If I'm seeing this correctly $159.99 in Singapore translated to roughly $115 US plus tax. I can't be the only one that thinks that is just crazy. This guy look to be to scaled with other MP cars like Tracks, Prowl, and Sideswipe. I figured this was going to be somewhere around $80 which still seems overpriced to be honest, But +100 is steeeeeeep. Would that also put MPM-04 pushing $200!!!!. Is there a Plastic shortage I don't know about or are Takara/Hasbro just taking us for a ride.

Hasbro confirmed a whiiile ago that the US price for MPM-03 would be $80, and MPM-04 would be $100.

I read that too but somethings not adding up. If googles currency exchange calculator is correct. The hasbro/takara releases may not be so identical after all. We'll have to wait and see. I hope I'm wrong.

Prices for Hasbro products in other countries are often quite inflated compared to that same product's price in the US.

Don't like the price? Don't buy it then.

I need to see some comparative pictures of this guy and Wei Jiang Battle Hornet, like, yesterday.

Oh I fully intend to buy. This guy looks better every time I see it. My hats off to the designers. Engineering looks top notch, love that the wheels are actually accurately centered under his feet and not hanging off to the side. I was just shocked to see a sticker price that was $35 more than expected. Just makes me wonder if there are going to be some classic Hasbro cuts to hit that lower price point. They indicated that they would be identical but Takara often goes all out on better paint apps. In this case it could really make the difference for those looking for the definitive MP Bee. There were some questionable pics a while back that still have me concerned.

Again, Hasbro product prices in countries other than the US are higher when going via the exchange rate. It will still be $80 domestically, and the quality will be the same as like, say, the same product released in Europe. Japan however, headed by TakaraTomy, is a different story.

Currencies never add up since they are constantly changing and prices are settled at the local market way before they come out. So it wont add up, ever.

The price chosen for the US market was $80 and thats it. You wont find it for that exact same price elsewhere.

And to prove how nothing matches up, people in Japan are able to buy this toy for $67,71 http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail ... agecnt%3D1

And you wont be able to get that exact price anywhere else either.

After the several in-hand images we've seen, fellow Seibertronian Actar has also shared with us a video review for Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM3 Bumblebee! You can check out the video below, and let us know what you think of this new movieverse figure (one of three so far, with Optimus Prime and another yet to be fully confirmed) in the Energon Pub.

That was an awesome review! Man, this figure is great! You were right about the details sort of getting lost but then I saw them better in your review. And the door wings and where they sit is great and I love the lack of kibble anywhere. the die cast is awesome too.

To add on to what the others have said, the prices of TF figures in Singapore are horrendously inflated. Deluxes are SGD34.99 and Voyagers are SGD59.99...

I recommend watching this with the sound off. That guy's voice is annoying. I still can't justify the price, so hopefully Wei Jiang or somebody will release one with the mentioned annoyances fixed.
