More images from the International Tokyo Toy Show come from snakas. We get a close up look at two upcoming figures by Takara Tomy. One is a Voyager sized figure from their Transformers Animated toy line, named Hydrodive Bumblebee. This was originally meant to be a release by Hasbro, but their Animated line has since stalled. The other figure is Masterpiece Movie Starscream, a tattooless repaint of Leader Starscream. Check them out below!

I'm glad I preordered that Bumblebee. I don't like the gold, I really don't, but that's a new mold for sure. It's not the Deluxe Class, and it's not the Activator, nor is it the Legends Class. A brand new mold. Impressive.

Bought.

That BB looks like a neat toy design. I would like to see more of him for sure. Rodimus also looks to be almost magenta/dark plum in color. I wonder if it's just the lighting?

so is this the only version of Leader SS that TT will put out? or will it be a separate release like Buster Prime?
has anyone been able to tell if there are any other differences between the paint apps, besides the tattoos?

Not so sure that is a new mold for Bumblebee. Just looks like the same old figure with the front end jammed into the blue bubble/wing set. Same with the bot mode. Same old figure with his head in a bubble.

Nope, check out the feet. The old deluxe class mold had the front bumper on a hinge so that his "toes" were posable. This mold doesn't, the front bumper and the rest of the foot is all one piece.

Anyone gonna be calling this guy Goldbug? :lol:

Oh yeah! Didnt spot that, been so long since I had any of my Animated stuff out on display. I wonder if the bubble/wings come off?

Yeah, its Goldbug.

No this is a new mold, this is in fact the new mold Bumblebee that was announced over a year ago by Hasbro to be more in scale with the rest of the line, more show-accurate and be sold at a Voyager price point due to the inclusion of the submarine thing.

So far this will be the first but not only release of this mold for Takara, I'm sure we're getting a MP-M01 ROTF version down the line as well.
Paint app wise from what I can tell, the alt-mode looks to be painted to be more accurate to the actual jet, and the bot mode seems to have more detailed paint apps based on the movie design, at least in the arms.
I want both of these it just sucks that this BB is in gold and won't fit into the rest of my TFA collection.

Yeah, the whole bubble/wing piece comes right off, so underneath there's a brand new bumblebee figure that's more in-scale with all the other animated figures.
If only Hasbro had released him.

You would be incorrect good sir. We've been told many times that it is a new mould, more to scale (so smaller than the old deluxe). Pretty sure the transformation is quite different as well as I seem to recall people saying that it no longer had a fake chest/roof.

Anyway, I'd prefer this in yellow rather than gold too. Actually I'd dig it in gold if it had a new Goldbug-style headsculpt. I seem to recall the bio for G1 Goldbug mentioned he was water-tight or something too, so it would be a good fit.

Sweet.

I don't know if that is actually the case. The ones I saw here were actually in the newer packaging-same as Battle Hooks Prime.

That box in the picture certainly looks like the old movie packaging..
I guess I wouldn't know. I wasn't there.

Sorry-I made a mistake. I was thinking about the Movie Leader rather than the "Masterpiece" version. :oops:

Yeah, JPG's right, the TT MP version is in the 2k7 movie-style packaging, which is kinda weird considering the regular MP style box we've seen prior to this, but wth

Ever heard of mock-up packaging? That's where the retailers hastily craft together something what they assume will be close to the actual packaging.

Nope, it's the lighting playing tricks.

I don't mind the gold, really (look at my name). But I'm not so sure about getting him, until there's confirmation about the Hasbro Voyagers getting cancelled.

One more thing: the Japanese name for Hydrodrive Bumblebee is Jetpack Bumblebee. Just thought I'd let you guys know ;)
