Thanks to a video posted and since taken down by Kevin Liu on Youtube, but reuploaded in a mirrored format, we have video and images of the new Movie Masterpiece MPM-7 Volkswagen Bumblebee! This new masterpiece figure is an all original mold, transforming from a Volkswagen Beetle to Bumblebee's robot mode from the new Bumblebee movie, or a robot close to it, seeing as how it still has the door wings he appears to lack in the movie. The figure comes with a battle mask that is attached by lifting up on the center piece of his head, removing his scalp, and placing the battle mask in its place. He also comes with his gatling gun and his sword arm, all of which can store on his back, including his mask.

Check out the embedded video and images taken from the video below, and let us know what you think!

Before any posts on "wtf why are there wings !!!" the wings in the movie mass shift to impossible degrees (seriously they end up smaller than the tires) so those probably wouldn't have been possible to pull off. also.... almost all the art has him with wings, so no wings was probably a last minute change, thus the mp still having them. outside of the wings however, this bee looks amazing and pretty darn accurate, cant wait to get it! :D

He looks better with the wings anyways in my opinion and this figure looks very nice. Similar in some ways to the Studio figure but obviously with some nice improvements given the size and complexity of a MPM figure. And I love that shading on the vehicle mode of the reddish-orange to the yellow. I may try replicate that on my Studio figure if it even frickin' turns up. If my health crud allowed me to have a proper job and income I'd probably start buying MPMs and would certainly get this but for now the Studio Series figures suit me just fine. :)

The alt-mode paint is a little wonky, but other than that I think he looks great! I’m really digging that plasma cannon.

And here I was thinking "well, at least the Masterpiece toy will get it right and not have the wings!"

Oh well. Means all I have to buy for this line is Optimus and some Decepticons! :D

Holy moly that looks good! I think I'll be satisfied with the Studio Series figure but I'm really digging this one too. I'd love to see a comparison between this, the SS fig, and Masterpiece G1 Bee.

Looks just like the deluxe rather than bee in the actual film. Easy pass

Well, geez. Never been over the top about the apparent Bumblebee fetish that must sell like hot cakes because this is probably the 17th movie Bee I've seen, but that is a DARLING paint job. A true work of art. Kudos to the designers - more like this please! ;)^

For both the SS and MP version to have the same wings you have to believe that was a trait that the design had at some point in the movie production. I think he looks better with the wings, personally, so I'm very happy with the way this turned out.

And to think, he's identical in ever way to the OSKO, who'd have thought? ;)

I agree, the wings on him. Either way he looks awesome. Note to self: add to cart.

Not sure where to put this but I thought it interesting and sorta related to this figure?

And yeah given that even the huge models of Bee at events and stuff have the wings, the removal of them was likely a late change by the movie makers and didn't really think about where those parts could feasibly hide away but as I said I do far prefer them on him (despite my usual dislike of kibble).

If he has wings he should be able to rollerskate...

I like the wings and it gives Hasbro the option of doing a tampax licensed figure

I think this looks pretty good. Makes me want to really track down the MPM3 and hope for an MPM of the Classic Camaro :ic$:

In other Transformers Bumblebee Movie news, we have another look at the Movie Masterpiece MPM-7 Volkswagen Bumblebee toy from the upcoming movie and the toyline resulting from the collaboration of both Transformers toymakers Hasbro and Takara Tomy. This time, we have a stop motion animation clip of the figure in both modes, as shared by the official Hasbro Transformers Singapore Facebook page - though there is no full credit as yet, and different sources are claiming that this is either fan commissioned or made by director Travis Knight's Laika studios.

In either case, you can check it out below, and let us know what you think!

[quote]Coming soon in October - Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee - VW Version (MPM-7)!

Vehicle mode features Bumblebee’s accurate, officially licensed vehicle from the new TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE™ film: 1967 Volkswagen Beetle (with exclusive, weathered deco).

That's the "new" Beetle they introduced in '98. Pretty much a Beetle in name only. The classic Bumblebee Beetle ended production in 1979.

The little video of Hasbro showcasing it was very fun!It may be the first a Transformer ever made Michael Jackson's dance movies in offical media!
