    Hmmm. This looks better than I thought it would.

    If there's a flaw though, it's that the chest is way too boring.

    What's with that junk behind is head? That and the chest looking incredibly plain make me really not want this. I'm more than satisfied with Henkei BB.

    bit too pricey for me, if it was $30-40 i may of got it, looks really good but i'll hold off in hope Takara does a MP version as that's the line i'd be displaying this with

    Looks decent. Debating. $75 shipped is kinda steep.

    i think the fact there's no added articulation hurts this, that mold is 10 years old now? However old it is it's showing

    The mold is only 6 years old :lol 

    Anyway, I think they dropped the ball by not transplanting the door kibble to the back of the legs as we've seen with custom re-shell projects.

    He's upscaled, right? I don't recall Classics Bumblebee being that tall.

    Not really digging the execution on this one, but I'm not sure I would have bought it anyway because:

    1) For the time being I'm pretty satisfied with Alternity Bumblebee.

    2) If I decide I really want an accurate VW BB, I'm more inclined to wait until 2057 or so when iGear releases theirs, because based on the design sketches they've posted for that and CJ they look like way better figures than anything you could make out of the Classics versions.

    Great flippin' eye. I didn't even think about that:

    Put classics bee by MP-10, and yea... the tip of his head is mid-thigh.

    The comparison shot above is a 'shop job, but even estimating puts him a good inch higher than the Classics mold.

    Although with MP Sideswipe for reference, maybe he's too tall now. :eek:

    Yea: it's kind of funny, because Classics bee is actually the "right" size.

    I think the scale choice has a lot of it has to do with the alternate spike being able to fit in alt. mode.

    I am excited for this one, though. No doubts about that.

    Too early to tell. You could email RK to ask.
