From Uncle Tree Studios on Facebook we have out best look yet at the upcoming Transformers 2018 Bumblebee Movie Studio Series SS18 Deluxe Bumblebee figure which turns into a Volkswagen beetle.
This is the deluxe class Bumblebee figure we are getting for the movie and all non gimmick toys for any other movie character will also be part of Studio Series. The photos give us a good look at the accessories and deco we will be getting at mass retail and show us how small he is compared to the previous Bumblebee figure which was already quite small.

Unlike the other Studio Figures we got so far, this Bumblebee is not based on the final CG models, as is made apparent with his wings no longer being as prominent in recent screen shots. This figure should be hitting mass retail in the coming month or two as it is part of the next wave of Studio Series figures along with KSI Bot and Shadow Raider.

So, does the size bother you? Let us know your thoughts on it and if you will be getting this one or one of the many other releases of this mold.

They managed to make the original studio series Bumblebee look big, I'm impressed. It looks like a much better figure than the original studio series Bee though, I'm looking forward to it.

No altmode images?

Anyways, I know he's obviously a Bumblebee, but the different size and the tone of his design makes me want to repurpose this Bee as a different character. So while Camaro Bee is the same Autobot from the 5 movies, this Bee can be a Centurion that looks like Bumblebee when he loses his memory and thinks he is the Autobot we all know and love. Of course, the real canon will contradict my headcanon (not to mention no TF fiction is safe from confusing continuity problems), but I like to use my imagination.

I don't mind the small size, so long as the figure is still reasonably close to a deluxe, but what I do mind is the wings. I may still get this figure though.

So.. I have mixed feelings on this little guy. One the one hand, I love the new design and love the figure as well as the original Studio Series Bee, but the smaller size worries me... He looks like a tall Legends class figure at this point... Still gonna get him, but might wait for the two pack's price to be released before I make a decision. If I can get that one for a good price I'd be almost done with SS figures. Until they do Devastator that combines that is :KREMZEEK: Seriously, I'd love for them to try to make that combiner with individual modes, please Takara :PRAY:

Somewhere, some Hasbro/Takara toy designer is banging thier head against a wall, wondering why the movie crew changed the CGI model at the 11th hour on them like that. They know in thier heart they'll have to do a "correct" version in the not too distant future.

A waist swivel and ankle tilts AND streamlined weapons AND battle mask? You spoil us, HasTak. Some wrist swivels and he'd be perfect.

Finally some pictures of him where he's posed well! He looks really good - I dig the ankle tilts. Can't wait to get him!

I'm glad they made him smaller too, it helps keep the scale consistent.

Consistent to what? Its not like he ever has to fight ROTF Megatron.

For a moment there is thought he came with the hammer...still I do like him, the size isn't an issue for me, in fact with my limited display options it's a boon.

The toy looks fantastic and poses very well too. Looking forward to having this toy on my shelf.
Anbd size is fine as suits the car mode and makes him look a bit younger too. :)

Consistent with the character since people have been pointing out that he appears to be a smaller bot in this movie, particularly in the garage scene.

I have to wonder if the figure would have been more accurate if the movie hadn't been pushed back by half a year. Is this what the character model would have looked like if they hadn't been given more time to tweak it?

Quite possible, but aside from a slightly different version in the future (More bumblebees! Yay?) There's not a lot they can do now about it.

Yeah I don't even care. I've said before on here I actually like the doors. They're part of movie-Bee's general image (and fit his name since they're like bee wings anyways) and find the current movie model kinda 'bland' without them. The toy is fine and I will gladly give money to Hasbro for it.

That looks a LOT better than I originally thought. And FINALLY a picture of the back and it looks nice.

There's a comparison pic with SS Movie 2007 BB and the new one next to each other. There's definitely a difference but I absolutely don't care for his unmasked face ;)

Well, he’s shorter in the new movie than he is in the others, so making him shorter will help him scale better with guys like Dropkick who are deluxes but are presumably bigger than Bee.

But then they could simply make dropkick bigger to scale better with a decently sized bumblebee toy.

I really see no reason for Bee to be so much smaller here.

In vehicle mode he's even a bit too big for 2007 BB. But we get a lot of accessories to compensate his size. :KREMZEEK:
But Dropkick is definitely out of scale. Would be cool to get a triple-changer and they could even retool him into AoE Drift.
Did Drift show his helicopter mode in TLK? #-o
