This all-new Masterpiece Movie Series MPM-3 Bumblebee figure is a brand new mold, which just started hitting retail stores worldwide. The Hasbro version of this figure is a Toys R Us exclusive. Bumblebee is based more on his original appearances in the Transformers films. He maintains his original Chevrolet Camaro alt mode from the film franchise, and even includes an accessory to give him his cannon arm. The figure also features a flip-down battle mask and several other features.

Special thanks goes out to YouTube reviewer emgo316 for showing how to get pretty close to transforming this figure properly. We figured out an easier method after watching his video by squeezing the front side barrels upward while pressing downward on the roof top and making sure other panels along the way pegged in and lined up properly so that the smokestacks also plugged in correctly. Overall, it took about 2 hours to get this figure properly transformed correctly in truck mode. I'm sure many of you can beat it once you figure out how to do it correctly. His video can be found below the sample images from the gallery of Masterpiece Movie Series MPM-4 Optimus Prime below.
After you check out the images and emgo316's video, please let us know what you think of this amazing toy in the comments section below!

Here's the YouTube video from emgo316 that shows you how to get MPM-4 Optimus Prime transformed fairly closely in truck mode.

Loving this one. That's a Mutt Williams figure from the Indiana Jones toy line isn't it? Much easier to get than a HA Sam and while it might be a bit too big for scale with Bee's car form I think that looks great with Bee in robot mode since it's less obvious that he'd have to logically fit inside. I'll be looking out for that Mutt figure. Even likely to turn up in charity shop or car boot sale. I only wish that Bumblebee was too cos monies.

Yeah, no kidding man. The tolerances on this toy are a mess. It's like someone worse at designing Transformers tried to one-up RotF Leader Prime and failed hard. I don't recommend this to anyone that owns RotF OP.Ironhidensh wrote:*sees everything lined up and connecting properly in truck mode*

Loving this pic of the main Movie Prime molds, Deluxe and up.

Having bought Movie The Best MB-11 Prime, I don't really feel I need this though. Though I may pick him up if he's ever on clearance.

Heh heh heh, um....NO. After the insane tolerance and alignment issues with my MP Exhaust, I think I'll skip Baypiece Prime.
But should he ever wind up in the clearance bin, well, I don't HAVE to transform him, now do I?
