    Still want to see a comparison.

    Better yet .. someone take the MP Bee, Movie MP Bee, and have them do the DBZ fusion dance. Voila, Bee movie MP.

    Yup. They have officially cheaped out on the engineering, and it\'s a real bummer too. It\'s got some good ideas, but that damn kibble just... ughhh. Here\'s what I\'d do differently: 
    A) Make the hood the chest.
    B) Put the doors and wheels on the same mechanism, so they\'d have a better placement.
    C) Make the doors collapse in on themselves to appear smaller
    D) Have the windows fold in.
    E) Make the rear fenders part of the thighs. 
    F) Make the eyes on the mask dark blue plastic
    G) Put a wash on the paintjob instead of the fade that they\'ve got going on (though it is nice.)
    H) Give him extra faces. He has more than one expression.
    I) This one is a bit of a stretch, I\'ll admit. :/ A tab-in beehive.

    Maybe the problem is that the middle panel should still be rounded, whereas it's straight and flat on the figure, so the headlight panels stick out too much.

    most likely.
    the problem with that is the hood has the logo, and even in the movie the chest has no logo, so that would have been an issue... (most likely VW not letting the logo be there)

    Yeah, that back kibble is pretty unfortunate... only a meh for me right now.

    Granted, it's not super accurate. But I'm okay with that, honestly. It looks really cool for what it is. I'll probably wait to see how LegendaryToys handles it.

    The center chest piece is very flat when it should be very curvy. That one detail would help this figure quite a bit I think. It's round in the movie, which gives him a much rounder look and helps his chest look like one solid piece. With it flat like this figure and the ss figure, it breaks up the chest making it look more gappy and haphazard like previous movie designs. Besides the chest, the shins are a bit inaccurate beneath the knee caps, and his head is too small and the proportions of his face are a bit off.

    Those are all fairly small details, but they add up into a figure thats not nearly as accurate as I was hoping for, and they all would have been fairly simple fixes if they had just waited a year or so and hadn't based the figure off of concept art.

    Not hating on this, but I find it disappointing that for an $80 Master Piece figure, the equipment accessory storage in vehicle mode is pretty damn lame compared to the deluxe movie series version you can get $20.

    well that deluxe had less robot crammed in the vehicle than this appears to have. i mean its the same thing that they did with optimus.... that guy didn't exactly have wonderful weapon storage.... neither does ironhide... tbh most of the mpm's don't have good storage...

    Looks way too much like an upscaled deluxe, and not at all like the CGI, which really defeats the purpose of being an MPM. Easy pass until they design one based on the final CG.

    I think for most people we will have to see what he looks like maybe in better photo's,lighting,etc but for me I think he looks better in the stopmotion and I like the figure already also by the way that stopmotion was great man.

    Isnt this like a 1969 Bug in a movie taking place in like 1986? I seriously doubt the Bug Bumblebee scanned rolled right off the lot. If anything by the end of the movie he will scan a new 1977 Camaro. Im sure what you see on this alt mode will be screen accurate. Wish we could say the same for the robot mode.

    Geez, some of you fellas have some unreasonable standards for HasTak to meet. I mean, what, you expect your $16-20 Lockdown figure to be as well engineered and accurate as your $130 3P Lockdown? Your Bumblebee to remain accurate to a constantly revised character model? Give me a break. You know what would’ve happened if HasTak had waited for the movie to come out and get the finalized Bee design for the MPM? Some 3P company would’ve taken the SS Bee, modify and upscale it for MPM scale, and release it. Then, when HasTak finally does finish MPM Bee, there will be people who say “Oh look, HasTak’s been copying off of so and so,” or “Meh, OSKO SS is good enough for me.”*

    Personally, I like the MPM figure. I like the rounded design, I like the VW altmode, I like it all. Will be a purchase from me.

    *And no, I do not hate 3P. I love some 3P. I just think people should be using a bit more rationale sometimes.
