    If you're talking about going from car to bot, I've found the best way to move them from where they're nestled in next to Bee's head is by just turning the head left and right. It nudges them out just far enough that I can get a better grip on them.

    Currently in the Chitose airport in Sapporo, Japan. It was really weird holding an MP at retail. IMG_5700.JPG

    I hate to ask this, I know it can be a pain, but if anyone could get a scan of the Takara Tomy Bumblebee instructions, I know a sizeable amount of us would seriously appreciate it. Thanks, in advance.

    If nobody ever gets back to you on this by the time I get my Takara MPM-3 from HLJ, I will deliver. I'm making the down payment for it tomorrow

    He's ostensibly the 2007 'Bee, marking the 10th anniversary of that film. Some fans will nitpick the accuracy, though, on account of the toy being based on the production Camaro, vs. the concept model seen in the film.

    You referring to the collar pieces? Yeah they seem tight but once you move the piece it will move fine.

    my phone, without fail, spins pics upside down when I upload pics to this site. I've tried to take upside down pics, and I've tried editing the pics with my phone and the uploading OS on this site. Nothing works. Funnily enough I can send the pics to my computer and they always upload correctly from there. No idea what sorcery is at play here.

    hahha, I know the feeling... :cry :
    Try editing your pics by spinning it to the correct side before posting is the newest trick I did to avoid this unfortunate issue..

    The pics are correct in my phone. And on my computer. There's some miscommunication from phone to website. I'll toy around a bit more next time.

    Paid for two MPM-3 Bees from HLJ. Went out this past weekend and never saw him at all out in the wild at Japanese retail, oddly enough. Glad I pre-ordered online because there's no guarantee I'll find anything at brick and mortar places even in Tokyo.

    I've had MPM-03 for a few weeks now. Mine has faulty heel spurs! Haha

    I just wanted to post a retail pic of any MP. That was the only one they had so I put a pic here.

    Back during the Transformers Reissue Collection I went to Japan. And seeing actual Transformers on the shelf was too much for me. I bought Blitzwing, Perceptor, Stepper, and Hotrod. It blew my mind to see them all on the shelf. So I really wanted to see MP figures like I did then. Even though I already own literally every one haha. All I could find was a crummy Movie Bee lol. Too bad I couldn't find the time to run into a Toys R Us. I'd probably have bought a few more Vita games.
