While there were sightings of the newest Hasbro Masterpiece release, Bumblebee, at Toysrus in Canada, there were still no listings, stock images or any information from Hasbro about this release. The listing for this toy is finally up at Toysrus.ca along with some stock images. The item is unavailable to order online at the moment but you can check if your store carries it. If you want more images, be sure to check out our pictorial review which compares it with the Takara version.

Here is the product description along with stock images of this toy.

Transformers Masterpiece figures showcase the greatest Transformers characters in a high level of detail. This Masterpiece Bumblebee figure is inspired by the classic 1986 Transformers animated movie and depicts the Autobot scout in his G1 Volkswagen Beetle form. This ultra-premium, collectible figure is a must-have for any Transformers collection.

Before becoming a renowned warrior and trusted lieutenant to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee was a young scout, eager to prove himself in the eyes of his fellow Autobots. Despite his small stature, Bumblebee earned the respect and admiration of his comrades through acts of bravery that far exceeded his size. He was among the first Autobots to arrive on Earth and, thanks to his friendship with Spike Witwicky, played a crucial role in gaining humanity's trust.

This Masterpiece Bumblebee figure converts from robot mode to a licensed Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle vehicle mode. It comes with a converting Exosuit Spike Witwicky figure. Both are inspired by the classic 1986 Transformers animated film. The figure comes with 2 swappable faceplates (smiling and neutral), a blaster accessory, a removable spare tire cover, and an extra side mirror. MP-08.

And a mistransformed Spikaniel. ;)^ I would expect nothing less. Side note, isn't this kind of a big deal that we have an actual licensed Bee figure in North America? I feel like we're not appreciating this enough. Maybe miracles can happen.

Maybe Volkswagen insisted Bee show the VW logo somehow in robot mode? They've had a lot of bad press recently.

Here is my Review of the Hasbro version if you haven't seen it.


I compare it to other yellow transformers also so you can see the contrast.
It is cheaper to get it imported, and you may even get the actual battle mask with it.

you are comparing 2 different currencies. That is 120$ canadien and 70$ US. Plus there is no shipping for TRU, but there is for TFSource. For a canadien, it comes out to the same price, which obviously sucks hard. Why would one be stuck paying import prices for a local item?! :HEADHURTS:

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian AzT, we have access to the official press release from retail chain Toys'R'Us and their plans for next week's massive pop culture and entertainment event in California: San Diego Comic Con 2016. According to the release, Bumblebee will take the Transformers spotlight in their convention exclusive releases, as the Masterpiece MP-08 Bumblebee with Spike and his Exosuit (you can see galleries of the Takara version here) will be on offer at the show first, and reach retail later in the year.

In addition, customers who acquire the Masterpiece figure at the event, will also receive a Funko Hikari Sofubi version of the yellow scout, with metallic paint on an 8-inch sized vinyl statuette. Check out official images and descriptions below!

Plane ticket and hotel booked? Check. Cosplay costume packed? Check. Panel and shopping list made? Double check.

As you can guess, this is no ordinary to do-list. It’s related to a very special time of year when comic-enthusiasts are glowing in anticipation – or maybe it’s just the reflection from their Star Wars lightsabers? That’s right, the biggest pop culture event in the world, Comic Convention in San Diego, is only two weeks away!

As most proud, self-proclaimed geeks – like me – know, this international annual convention is four full days packed with can't-miss panels, meet and greets, screenings, and seminars, plus thousands of comics, movie, and science fiction lovers in the most elaborate cosplay costumers ever.

While I sit here at my desk buzzing with anticipation, I can totally relate to the feeling Ray, Egon, Winston and Venkman had right before they crossed the streams for the first time to defeat the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (#Ghostbusters #dontcrossthestreams). Who can’t wait to see endless lines of people waiting for a panel discussions with some of the best in the industry? This lady. Who can’t wait to trip over yet another white and flowy Princess Leia dress while waiting in the bathroom line? Yup, me again!

However, the one thing I truly am so excited for is to meet with my fellow die-hard collectors at the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343). You’ll find me there with the rest of the Toys“R”Us team and our lineup of exclusive figures, building sets and more – so call upon your inner Jedi (or Darth Vader, if that’s your thing), and stop by early to get first-dibs!

If you need me, I’ll be gazing at my collection and #fangirling until the convention starts, but to satiate fans’ appetites, we’ve included the full list of exclusive products that Toys“R”Us will have at the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343) and online at Toysrus.com/ComicConvention from Thursday, July 21 through Sunday, July 24, below!

I've seen a picture of MP Bumblebee on TRU shelves on twitter. It's almost unbelievable how they are charging double Takara's price for Masterpiece Bumblebee

We knew Hasbro's Transformers Masterpiece MP-08 Bumblebee was coming to Toysrus (at least online), but we weren't sure exactly when we could find it in stores, if ever. It turns out to be in stores right now.
Transformers fan Scott found Masterpiece Bumblebee at Toysrus in Holbrook Long Island New York for $ 64.99 and took images as proof. Will any of you be picking it up? Let us know!

One of my favorite pieces of the engineering of this figure is how the remaining hood piece that does not form his feet folds up and goes into his body portion. I find it odd that this was not done for the photography for the box art.
