    Wotafa has a new video comparing the Hasbro and Takara versions of MPM Bee. Can anyone who speaks Japanese give us a rundown of the differences he found?

    hmmmm okay...first MP that made me regret buying, was so tempted and hyped when they announced Bee but man did i get a lemon wow, head doesn't turn, chest doesn't sit flush, the panels for tabbing the chest don't get there, arms are loose, weapon won't stay in place, ratchets are loose at the thighs, ankles are loose, doors wont swiffle up and he feels cheaply made, the 9 tfm tf's i've got feel better then this Bee. I really hope they improve on Barricade if he's ever getting made.....man i feel sad now....:( :( :( :( :( :(

    No offense, but a lot of your issues sound like user error to me.

    Hmmm maybe it does to you but i've been handling tf's for over 30 years and this is my first lemon, the TFM ones are better in tabbing and lining up etc etc etc...

    Yeah, well no offense to you buddy, but I was hiding under your bed watching and you were definitely doing it wrong.

    - Box with Japanese text.
    - Different instruction sheet.
    - Slightly deeper color (he can't be sure).
    - Different eyes.

    That's it.

    Anyone know if these'll be at the entertainment earth booth at SDCC? I have family going, and I'd like to pick this guy up for MSRP.

    MPM-3 Bumblebee tabs and lines up perfectly fine. You probably aren't transforming it right.

    Also, how in the world can you not get the head to turn?

    Because... Maybe, just maybe, he really did get a lemon? I don't know for sure though, as I'm not hiding under his bed...

    FWIW: I have two of these now and one of them refuses to allow the right side shoulder "flap" to sit flush with the rest of the vehicle in alt mode.

    It also has the back left fender incapable of sitting flush to the car body in alt mode.

    It's almost like the pieces themselves are warped somehow

    Some of them definitely do have issues...my "good copy" even needed work done on its right shoulder as it came with two parts that where not sitting correctly to one another out of the box.

    There is no way his Bumblebee head can't turn. It might be really tight, but it will turn.

    Sorry to read that you got a bad one. Ignore the few wise-arses here. I ran across an MP-38 on eBay with a flood of issues as well. Some MP's like Lambor (Sideswipe) have paint issues. MP-36 Megatron has reports of paint chipping. There are some bad copies out there, unfortunately. Your post is the first I've read that has reported any issues on MPM-3. But I believe you are being truthful about it. At the same time, it seems like a case like your is rare for this release. Hopefully you can exchange it.

    wasn't a fan of Bee's lifeless looking eyes so I decided I'd try and give them a somewhat more screen accurate look. Here's my attempt at giving Bee some pupils. I plan on making the eyes in general a more lighter blue
