We have the official images for MP-45 Bumblebee from the Amazon Japan listing that just came online.
For those wondering, here is the breakdown of costs if you were to import it yourself to North America:
Items: ¥ 9,862
Shipping & Handling: ¥ 1,200

There will also be a Hasbro release and the only difference between Hasbro's release and Takara's would be a black slip cover for eglish writing (which you can see here). In Canada, that release will be available exclusively at EB Games for $159.99.The images show us the few accessories this toy comes with. Fellow Seibertronian made a nice comparison to the previous MP Bumblebee release which you can see here.

Enjoy!

Those Amazon photos make the backpack look less horrible than before, even if I still dislike the feet, but that price still make me baulk. £95 is an awful lot to drop on one toy that is only okay at best.

I'd consider that a bit of a formality, really, The Bumblebee Movie had realistic Beetles, thus it required its use. It's more like "Not an exact match, but we have a license, show it as a sign of goodwill."


I'm fairly certain that's what the brand team told me when I asked about the Volkswagen logo on the G1 Bumblebee package last year at SDCC.

Isn't one of the main requirements for a properly licensed toy having the brand logo on it? That goes all the way back to RiD 2001 Side Burn.

No, the licensing in the west is not just about the logo but the shaoe of defining features such as headlights and the grill. With Sideburn since those features were too close to the real world version, Hasbro had to have the toy licensed to release it in the west. So since they had the proper licence (which Japan did not have) they were able to go all out and put the logo. They did not need to though.
Think of all those licenced western star Optimus toys that dont have the logo. And I dont remember seeing a Lancia logo on MP wheeljack ( though i may be wrong)

Dear Lord.... Amazon.jp is a scary place. Glad I finally found the language toggle....

If Amazon.jp ships hassle free to the US (at least)… they're really going to give the local importers a run for their money... 30% of MPs and Diaclone?!! sign me up!!!.

Just saved over $100 on several purchases (each) I was about to make State-Side T_T

That this Bee is a mess of panels and a shameful shellformer, OK. But they could have added just 4 more panels to hide the mess of the feet and the sides of the back to make it forgivable.

I've ordered from them before myself but never got Free shipping, how'd you do it?

Rodimus Knight said he got HASSLE free shipping. That just means that there werent any problems with Japan shipping him the toy and it arrived in a good amount of time. The shipping wasnt free.

And I agree Rodimus Knight, it is scary. That's why I bought that Clear Green Unicron of Light. It was so much cheaper than everywhere else and the shipping was really minimal that it got the better of me and i made the purchase. Its a cool toy but not something I really nedded or would have bought if it wasnt so easy.

The only thing scary about Amazon.jp is how much it dings up my wallet. I've made a couple orders from them. Shipping costs are reasonable, very fast and way better than the sellers (aliexpress/tfdirect) I deal with from China (slow and usually beat up, but almost always free). I give Amazon.jp ;)^ ;)^ prices are good and it's just like using your local Amazon... once you find the language setting.
