    Interesting - that seems to use the TakaraTomy "Masterpiece" Bumblebee version's plastic colours and electronics (clear hand as opposed to Hasbro's blue hand).

    I'd figure the places with all the gold paint is where the yellow paint would be on the Masterpiece version.

    IF that's the MP-MBB Hong Kong exclusive, what are the chances BBTS or other online stores will get it in?

    I think the Costco exclusive mentioned in the Hasbro Q&A was to include a legends BB and Mudflap. I really hope that's what this is because Costco would be much cheaper than importing.

    Don't like the chrome gun, but the metallic yellow really works on this figure.

    Yes, in fact, it specifically said "Premium Bumblebee" with regard to the Legends toy. That is more than likely the Costco one.

    I'm defiantly getting this since its going to be released in the US now. Any word on when he will be released? Also dumb question here but do you have to be a Costco member to get in there store?

    There are more differences. The actual MP Bumblebee has more paintapps, like black stripes on the top of the shoulders, no Autobot symbol on the chest, and silver detailing here and there. Another difference is the chrome on the end of the barrel, which makes this EXACTLY the same version as we saw at that one Chinese convention.

    Pretty sure that both of the Japanese versions (MP and metallic) use more of a black plastic whereas this Costco exclusive seems to be using a light gray, so I don't think this is the same as what they're getting overseas. Could be wrong though.
