    Oh please do tell! I was actually planning on getting a stand in for Charlie once this guy wide releases. Good to know he scales well with 3.75 figures. Do you know what line she's from?

    Yeah... I'm going to have to pick him up. I think this Bee design might be one of my favorite Transformers designs. Maybe even my favorite, period. It's so good. Does anyone know how much he'll cost?

    Edit: It's right in the original post. I'm an idiot.

    It's a combo of two figures from Locker Toys Zombie Lab series. Body from one, head from another.

    Locker Toys Action Figures, Statues, Collectibles, and More!

    Jeana and Oliva I believe.

    And, in normal light, the skin tones are different. That's why most of my shots with her are dark and face away from camera. Plus she's a little older compared to Charlie from movie. For shelf display I think we all need a bit more research.

    Or maybe 3a can help us out :)

    That's not bad at all as a good base! Thank you for the info. I was actually thinking about using a Mcfarlane Walking Dead figure.

    This looks great. I may have to make an exception to my rule of not buying non-transforming figures. Is there anywhere to preorder this in the UK?

    I've pre-ordered with Anime Export, they are good when it comes to avoiding customs fees...

    i missed the first batch preorders, wondering if i should order through bamba for a q2 release, or through sideshow for a q3 release since i have some credit from previous purchases. anyone know if sideshow has the same support as bamba if any defects are found?

    Great, thank you! And d'oh, I've even used them before so I'm not sure why I didn't check there. Preordered! I'm only sad that I have to wait until May. :)

    I have one on order from Amazon. They won't get them in til September, but I have other stuff to get that's more important than a toy, so om okay with having a few extra months to put back for it.

    I generally don't like non-transforming figures, but Hasbro and Takara are both suffering from bad design styles and poor quality control. I'm okay with getting a $3 BotBot that I have to monkey with to get it right. Not $80 to $250+ adult collectibles.

    If I want a great looking movie Bumblebee, I'll get this. I can spend $30 for the 1/24 scale car to park next to it.

    This what the masterpiece should have looked similar to. 3P to the rescue I hope.

    Absolutely incredible, both the figure and the gallery!

    And oh wow, I did not realize that the DLX is (almost?) in 1:18 scale. That's seriously cool.

    I don't like Transformers that do not transform. I'm not into expensive, high-end collectibles, and I generally dislike Bayverse designs. But this figure is AWESOME!

    @Tony_Bacala, amazing gallery, so jealous you have him at hand :)  can’t wait until it gets released. And can’t wait to see more pictures of Blitzwing. Saw your teaser, when can we expect to see more you can share? Thanks?

    @decemberist, any way of pinning the gallery link into your 1st post for easy finding? Otherwise it’s going to be a pain hunting it down once it gets buried with all future post. Thanks!

    You’re god damn right. That thing was a disappointment to MPM and masterpiece in general. This thing is incredible and shall remain the best official bumblebee movie design. Now Unique Toys! Make it change shape!

    Wonderful pictures! I’m so glad I preordered this, it looks like it’ll be a great figure to have. And it’s kinda adorable too!
