He's so tiny!

I wasnt really bothered by Bumblebee before but now I am looking forward to a Bumblebee figure.

Please tell me that is a badly painted prototype. Also, that wheel may be accurate to the character but it looks ridiculous.

It does have that hand painted look about it, doesnt it. Was thinking the same thing.

I still have a twinge of regret that this is the licensed vehicle, not-accurate-to-the-cartoon alt mode, but he is looking nice.

I know how you feel. They may have been able to do more with it and lessen that backpack if they went with the animation alt mode but that was probably part of the deal to secure the rights for the character in the Masterpiece line.

Leaves the door open for a 3rd party animation accurate model I suppose.

Toyworld Bii. It is also in the same scale as the official Bumblebee. I don't have Bii because I want the official one but Bii does look nice.

Oh, there you go! Hmm, looks odd though. Think I prefer Mp Bumblebee. I should think most people will display him in Bot mode anyway.

Yeah, it's missing some paint apps, remove the blue windows and a new head to be considered decent. I'd rather just get the MP BB. It's not like I'm gonna display the back of it anyway.

Bii gets the alt mode more or less right, but the mode has several inaccuracies. I would consider Bii for Classics, but not my MP shelf (not that I buy 3rd Party MPs - just the opposite, I actively resist them).

I can understand that, though, Fanstoys work is incredible and they are doing characters that would be unlikely to get a release officially.

FT's best work has been Quakewave, and I can see Takara putting an official Shockwave out in the next couple years (or I'm hoping for it, at least).

The Dinobots are cool, but don't quite hit the right cylinders for me. Dunno if we get official MPs of those characters, but right now my Dinobot priorities fall along Classics/Generations lines.

Following the Masterpiece Bumblebee images released earlier today, the same actoys.com member dlarirang has posted new in hand images of this release. These images were posted on the Omega Lock Facebook page.

This selection of images gives us a good look at the figure's transformation trough various views and comparison shots with other Masterpiece car figures. You can see more here.

Tiny?...He's darn near microscopic!

If he was completely made of metal I'd be all over it. This is another MP sadly that I will wait for a KO version for half the price. Haters gonna hate...but this economy doesn't warrant full retail for this Bumblebee release. :BOT:

I'm still not digging Bumblebee. After a string of amazing Masterpiece releases, I find that this one is difficult to get excited about. There are a lot of things to like, but something is off with his face that doesn't match his cartoon counterpart (maybe it's the odd shade of paint that they used instead of silver or that the face is longer than it should be?). Plus the Autobot symbol on his foot throws off the whole point of having the "reveal" symbol on his chest/car roof. I also don't like the way the hood of the car near the front windshield doesn't seem to fit together well. Other than that, I think the toy is pretty neat, but I'm just not that excited about it which is a bummer because I've been looking forward to a Masterpiece Bumblebee ever since we first heard about a possible Binaltech Bumblebee.

Congratulations on encouraging Takara to not continue the line.

There IS something off about the shape and the color of his face. The symbol on his foot does blow his cover. Let's hope it's a sticker.

Other than that, I'm excited.
Finally, a BB update that's a VW. I've waited, what, i dunno, 30 years for that?
