I thought it had been established that the figure that comes with bee is supposed to be Daniel, not Spike. Did they retract that? or does the official box/instructions say its spike?

Twas always Spike, never Daniel.

I just wish they'd paint the faces on these human figures, they look horrible without it.

Transformers: The Movie showed that Bumblebee was stationed with Spike on Moon Base Two. Daniel has always been paired up with either Hot Rod, Arcee or Wheelie.

For me this is the most disappointing MP in the entire line. I very much dislike the bot mode but in this figures defense i've never liked G1 BB's bot mode.
Alt mode looks pretty good but all in all nothing says masterpiece to me about this figure. It's just a properly made deluxe figure in homage to BB.
Also that Spike figure without any paint apps for the face.....that says it all right there.

This release is a huge pass for me. I know a lot of you like/love it but it really is a weak masterpiece.

I wouldn't pay more than 30 bucks for it even if i did want it.

Megatron was the only one I had problems with. Clips broke, tarnished feet. I have Rodimus V.1 and I have no real complaints with it. Soundwave's cassettes haven't been problematic, but Ratbat's mold is rather boring, I must say.

I'm not going to lie...I will probably seek out the KO. I hate to say that, but as much as I want to, I can't justify this. Both figures are ridiculously small, scale aside, and Spike's a bit of a mess. I just...nah. And the US version, if we get it, will go for the same price plus I'll have to wait a year or more, no thanks.

Oh, and when I do get it, that mirror isn't going anywhere near the figure. It looks stupid, imo.

It would be both hilarious and sad if a 3rd party Spike in Exo Suit is made and has a painted face.


I'd buy it in a heartbeat, that's for sure.

I really like this figure. definitely getting this, and a KO if they make a KO with the battlemask, so I can make goldbug. I don't mind spike too much, I didn't really expect painted eyes given takara's track record.

What would be nice is if Tomy can recreate those die-cast Diaclone pilots. They actually has detailed molded faces.

I'd like to see them license a 3rd party miniature/figure company a la the current sticker deal to release a small line of TF character figures from various TF franchises in scale with the MP figures. an MP scale Verity to go with Umags would be nice. And just for the hell of it, a voyager scale IDW holomatter whirl.

Takara does make more toys than just Transformers. Why not just have Takara themselves make MP-scaled humans?

That would be great. But smart money is, more or less, would come from or for the Japanese or Asian market. Given how Safety crazy the USA market is, this is a walking lawsuit in the making. And the Bayformer franchise line of ROTF is all but dead (the ones with the figures I mean)

Something similar to the KISS Player and Binaltech* line. Those figures, especially the back story from the former caused such a controversy. Too bad that the fugurews were actually nicely made despite lacking articulation.

As for Verity, I don't think she is famous enough as Carly Witwicky. Spike 2005 and Daniel2005 are included with UM, maybe an Amazon special for Carly?
