We have more details on Bumblebee's release as a Toysrus exclusive in North America, at least for Canada. He is listed at the price of $129.99 CDN, which is exactly $99.99 USD (much lower than anticipated based on Hasbro's recent overestimate of currency exchange). He is also limited at 2 per buyer, which is always welcomed for sought after items. He is currently not available but should be shortly. There is also a Hasbro coupon for $20 off anything over $50 so any Canadian fan could get this toy for $109.99 instead. The coupon can only be used in stores but that is good news since this toy has already been found in both Ontario and Quebec stores.

I'm actually a little surprised he didn't come with a small Allspark cube as an accessory.

Yeah, the lack of accessories is a major disappointment. I can't help but feel like this is the result of Hasbros involvement.

I'll definitely wait for clearance. Because I'm pretty sure plenty will be available and those overpriced items always come on sale sooner than later.

But the real reason is that I'm currently buying something HUGE from my local seller... I still have 2 to 4 months of payments to make... Yeah, I'm nut. 8-}

I dunno Kan... not saying it isn't possible... just saying this one might be hard to call. This isn't MP-08 Bee or YOTM Primal. He's got more going for him than they did. People actually want this figure, he's 100% new, and he's not as (grossly) overpriced as they were.

If stock and distribution is limited, I think your wait it out strategy will screw you. He'll absolutely be in demand, at least initially. It'll all depend on how many actually hit shelves.

It's still a wait-n-see for me. Mainly because I can't Hasbro coupon and my money MUST go elsewhere.

It's still Bee. It's impossible that there's no hive that will be unleashed at every stores.

Based on mine, and the vast majority of online reports, if you pay full price, you're gonna have the regrets.

Unless you leave it as a display piece only, I guess. >:oP

Good luck to you all, though. It really is a beautiful looking figure, it just doesn't hold up. :(

No, he's not worth that much.

Him however...

TF G1 Scorponok 1.jpg


99% complete. Just missing one tiny Fastrack gun. 574$CAN with taxes.
I could have one 100% complete for the same overall prise (thus saving around 40$CAN being the price that gun go for) but he's the only one who was willing to take in 174$ in trade as the first payment and setting it aside until I pay the rest by paying 100$CAN minimum monthly.

I had to jump on the occasion. This universal grail had to be mine!

One thing for sure, I will not buy any TF this year at Comiccon.
(BTW, Will, check your inbox!)

Soooo... I got him.
Lots has been said about him, mostly negative. Out of the box, he's 90% in car mode and getting him that last 10% of the way is a son of a B! Getting all tabbed in is such a pain, but it can be done, and he does look good once that wizardry is preformed.

The transformation is complex and he pulls off some neat moves. His proportions are perfect, like he came right off the screen of the first movie. And he is the very definition of "pictures don't do it justice". And sorry, my pics do suck :lol: . I've heard he can be quite loose, but at least on my copy I have no issue posing him. And damn, can he pose!

I think what I'm most impressed with is his face sculpt, and legs (looks and transformation). Maskless, he looks outstanding. That face sculpt. Mahgawd. But that mask... it doesn't look terrible, but (on my copy at least) is very unstable. Trying to move it into place causes it to snap off almost every time. Anyways... legs! The legs incorporating the wheels is god damn brilliant. Also: diecast. He's got a fair amount. He's weighty and feels good.

But in the end I don't know if I can recommend him since quality seems to vary so much. But I absolutely love him. Thumbs up.

It begins. Directly from the floor at San Diego Comic Con 2017, site owner Seibertron is providing us images of the display area at the Hasbro booth - featuring so far some older reveals from existing toylines. In this post, we cover Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-3 Bumblebee!

These are only the initial images, of course, expect the full Seibertron.com treatment as the event continues across the weekend, with more toy images, the Hasbro Breakfast Press event Thursday morning, panel coverage on Friday and Saturday, and follow-ups with official images and more!

As we're receiving several notifications from US-based Seibertronians of the Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-3 Bumblebee, we decided to make sure people were aware that the figure is indeed available at general retail in the States - at Toys'R'Us stores, of course.

Current confirmed sightings include Westland, MI (via Cprime18), Rockford, IL (from Rodimus Knight), Niles, IL (by our boss Seibertron). If you come across any more, make sure to use the Sightings Database to let other collectors know!

I have a question, and Will you're probably the one the most in the know...

I've got two MPM-3's. One bought from eBay hailing from China (I think), the other locally from TRU. Both are quite similar, but with slight differences. Would you consider the TRU one to be Hasbro US/CA, and the other one to be Hasbro Asia? (pics at bottom of post)

The TakaraTomy releases of these new MPM's are very confusing. Neither TT versions are out yet I think. Bee is showing a release date of this month, and Prime being in September. And we don't know what their boxes look like for sure, whether they'll be the same as the others or completely different. We know the figures themselves will be different, but not the boxes.... right? :-?

And yes, I've seen this pic, but I don't believe it's anything more than a mock up, possibly even unofficial.

Yes, by definition, if that one comes from Hong Kong, then it must be from Hasbro Asia since they are the ones distributing it there (if it was mainline China, that would be Hasbro China, which is a different entity).

However, as you mention, it is currently impossible to know if the Hasbro Asia one will be any different from the Takara one since Hasbro Asia has a knack for distributing Takara's same product in Asia. The box will surely be different though, if at least in terms of there needing to be Japanese writing ;) but your right we cant be sure beyond that.

Does that help at all?

I'm not sure why there seems to be a lot negativity surrounding MPM-3 Bumbleebee. I just got him today, and in my opinion he is 1000% better than MPM-4 Optimus Prime. His robot and car modes both look really good, and the transformation is fairly good with all the tabs snapping together beautifully.

If you have to decide between MPM-3 and MPM-4, my suggestion would be to go with MPM-3 (and I'm not even particularly fond of Camaro Bumbleebee in the first place lol)

Bee came out on July 13th, I've had mine for about a week now. Right now he's figure of the year for me, he's phenomenal.

Prime will probably be out 9/14.

Apparently the Hasbro version doesn't have any of the yellow paint over some of the yellow parts.

Normally I hate light pipping, but this is a rare case of it being done super well. There isn't much of an inlet on the back of his head, but it lights his eyes up nice and bright like on MP Shockwave. I only wish the eyes were more blue rather than slightly tinted.

I should point out that there aren't any stickers on the box and Bee's name is written in Japanese on the front so this isn't a case of them using the Asia box and covering stuff with stickers like we've seen them do in other movie lines.

Finally managed to track a Bee down yesterday! I had to drive for almost an hour to pick him up since there was only one Toys R Us anywhere near me that got him (and mine was the last one), but it was completely worth it. I didn't end up with any quality control issues, and he's absolutely fantastic outside of one of the flaps on his collarbone having a worryingly tight ball joint. He's a great figure though, and I hope the quality issues aren't widespread. I'm excited to pick up Optimus next!

I finally tried converting him back into a car for the first time. And I went without instructions. Most of it was straightforward except for the feet. It took a while for me to figure out how it was supposed to look based on what the joints and hinges allowed me to do and I had totally forgotten how it looked like the first time I went form car to bot.

But I figured it out and I have now transformed him a few more times and its great. No frustration and nothing annoying about it and everything fits properly. It all tabs in well so I dont have any of the problems in that regard. The only thing I would have liked was them to get the alt mode right and have that extra hood exhaust. I am also not sure if this yellow is correct, but the film was all colour filtered so its not easy to replicate.

As a proud member of the MPM Bee Owner Club, I can attest that he's pretty great. My only gripe with the figure is the paint don't really feel shiny and "rich" as on a real car. My Costco Gold Battle Ops Bee still feel look more "premium".

But I gotta admit that seeing and feeling all that METAL in MPM Bee is SAH-WEET as hell.

BTW, I only transformed him once, from car to bot. Without instructions, remembering the multiple video reviews. I've yet to turn it back.

One of the biggest releases this year from Hasbro is the Toysrus exclusive Movie Masterpiece MPM-3 Bumblebee. While he has been found in the US, not everyone has a toysrus nearby and the toy has been selling like hotcakes. But now, everyone who wants one can get him since he is now available on Toysrus.com. Shipping is free for this toy. Will you be getting him now that he is readily available?

As the newest member of the MPM Bee club, I have to say: he is really good. The metal is sweet! It adds heft that I was not expecting! The wings are finally done right, and the legs are a marvel with the fact they got the wheels in there complete with ankle tilt!

He does look really good. I've transformed him several times, and the only gripe I can claim to have is his hands. The thumb is really throwing off his ability to hold anything, and it makes his hands flipping back into his arms difficult. His thumbs needed some extra movement. Oh and he looks great with that hammer accessory that some 3P company put out. I can't remember what it is, I bought it 3 weeks ago. But with a blaster in the right and a hammer in the left, he looks like he's ready to sting like a bee!

Love him.

Alright, let's do this! :michaelbay:

So, like i mentioned earlier, MPM Bee is awesome. One of the things that surprised me was the shade of yellow that they used for it. Based on pictures and what people were saying, I was expecting a really bright shade of yellow like the T30 Deluxe Bumblebee. Thankfully, this isn't the case. It's a much better shade of yellow that does look a little off in vehicle mode (but not enough to bug me), but looks spot-on in robot mode. The other major thing I was worried with for this figure was the part of the head that includes the :BOT: logo and the antennae (which is actually die cast, i'm fairly certain) appears to sit on top of his head rather than be integrated with the rest of his helmet like it should be. This was really glaring in the pictures for me, but in person it looks just fine.
MPM Bee 1.jpg

MPM Bee is also my first Transformer with articulated fingers (HA Leadfoot doesn't really count), which is SO much fun for posing. His thumb could really use a swivel, but it's not that big of an issue. The paint is superb, they even have the month painted on his license plate. They also finally painted the black details on his shoulder armor, which I've been doing to my own Bumblebees for some time now. The only paint I could think to add is a little bit of yellow on the side tabs that hold his torso in place and a darker orange in the Plasma Cannon barrel. Speaking of the Plasma Cannon, I do like it, but I wish it was integrated into his arm and not a separate piece because I am terrified of losing it. Still looks good, though.
MPM Bee 2.jpg

Transformation is good, I love how the entire top of the car folds into his chest, it's a creative way to get rid of the backpack that many other Bumblebees have. The only trouble I've had with transformation so far is figuring out where to put the heel spurs as you transform the legs, but after figuring it out it's not that big of a deal. I will say that I didn't find the instructions very helpful, as they didn't show specific steps, it just kind of gives you a general idea in the direction parts should be moving. Vehicle mode is great. it rolls smoothly and again the paint is fantastic. Everything down to the rear view mirrors and windshield wipers is painted.

Overall, MPM-3 is a fantastic figure which I totally recommend. He does have a few flaws, such as a balance problem and insecure tabs in his feet, but the good far outweighs the bad in a figure that certainly earns the title of masterpiece.

100% agree he is awesome. He is the best of the 2 movie MP's this year. And Bee has a soft spot in my heart, so it is so great to have the perfect version of him

This is what I want out of Movie MP figures. Pitch perfect rendition of Bee, couldn't be happier with it! Wish more time had been taken with OP, this one proves they can do it right.

D-Max, I'm guessing this is the hammer you got for it? https://tfsource.com/prime-star/ms-m01- ... bumblebee/

Thanks to a heads up from several of our site sponsors, we have word for you that the highly popular MPM-3 Bumblebee figure is getting a reissue! MPM-3 Bumblebee was released in the summer of 2017 by both Takara and Hasbro, and was popular enough that it has kicked off the Movie Masterpiece line in earnest. The figure is based on his 2007 Movie appearance, and features a highly detailed and posable robot mode with a great car mode, and comes with his signature blaster and deployable battlemask, which does not require any face swapping as it's integrated into this head.

You can find the pre-orders for the reissue below from our sponsors. Let us know what you think of the news of a Movie Masterpiece reissue! Did you miss out and are looking forward to obtaining this guy now? Let us know!
