Movie Masterpiece MPM3 Bumblebee is coming out soon, both in Japan and the res of the world and we have a video review of the toy. There is no commentary, just music. This is said to be the Takara version but every indication shows that both the Takara and Hasbro release are the same, right down to the box.

Enjoy!

Huh, I don't really like the HA version of Bee. My least favorite that's for sure.

this guy though, he looks awesome and perfect. Come on TRU!

EDIT: also, his door wings are far better positioned

So. Just so I'm clear. It's packaged like a Takara Masterpiece, but it IS coming to U.S. Hasbro?

Sorry, but little pet peeve of mine, but, it's really not a review if there's no reviewing in it, is it?

I'd call it an "overview" or a "demo".

Thats why I didnt label it as such in the title :) And I just explained what it was in detail in the explanation so that no one would get confused.

Fellow Seibertronian Actar, joined by TFW2005 user gunshot, has purchased one of first Transformers Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee figures released in Singapore - and they've both shown off the Cybertronian scout with size comparisons, Bee comparisons, box sizes and some various posing! We've mirrored the images below for your viewing experience, check them out and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

These images alone are what I needed to possibly decide on getting this. Sure he's a bit bigger than usual, and I already have two other movie bees, BUT they FINALLY got his chest bit right in a smaller figure. Not to mention the proportions and details are all there.

While I do think this looks fantastic the price just seems outrageous. If I'm seeing this correctly $159.99 in Singapore translated to roughly $115 US plus tax. I can't be the only one that thinks that is just crazy. This guy look to be to scaled with other MP cars like Tracks, Prowl, and Sideswipe. I figured this was going to be somewhere around $80 which still seems overpriced to be honest, But +100 is steeeeeeep. Would that also put MPM-04 pushing $200!!!!. Is there a Plastic shortage I don't know about or are Takara/Hasbro just taking us for a ride.

Hasbro confirmed a whiiile ago that the US price for MPM-03 would be $80, and MPM-04 would be $100.

I read that too but somethings not adding up. If googles currency exchange calculator is correct. The hasbro/takara releases may not be so identical after all. We'll have to wait and see. I hope I'm wrong.

Prices for Hasbro products in other countries are often quite inflated compared to that same product's price in the US.

Oh I fully intend to buy. This guy looks better every time I see it. My hats off to the designers. Engineering looks top notch, love that the wheels are actually accurately centered under his feet and not hanging off to the side. I was just shocked to see a sticker price that was $35 more than expected. Just makes me wonder if there are going to be some classic Hasbro cuts to hit that lower price point. They indicated that they would be identical but Takara often goes all out on better paint apps. In this case it could really make the difference for those looking for the definitive MP Bee. There were some questionable pics a while back that still have me concerned.
