    While this is all true, I dunno, I just feel that the regular Masterpiece line succeeds more and does a better job of resembling the characters than the MPM's have done (ironically, MPM Ironhide is the only one so far that I think gets it all right). But maybe its just me.

    Ironhide and Barricade are spot on for me, Bee is close, and Prime is okay, but still better than other versions of him, imo.

    Well which series is closer to you? It might just be a case of having higher standards. Granted MPM-3 skipped on paint and MPM-4 had some unfortunate QC issues, I don't see any issues with the accuracy of their base molds compared to most of the MPs. None of the figures are perfect and all of them have varying degrees of inaccuracies fans let slide for a variety of reasons.

    The main difference with MPM03-05 is that those figures years after the CG models were finalized.

    It is very likely that Hasbro and Takara were not working off of the final CG model for 2018 movie Bumblebee when they started working on MPM07.

    It is also possible that Travis Knight's team isn't done working on Bumblebee's CG model.

    I'm going to wait and see if he shows up for preorder on AmiAmi or HLJ.

    Barricade arms are flawed though. The doors are supposed to be attached to the shoulders and not rotate when you bend his elbows. The upcoming deluxe has this right.

    As far as the location is concerned, it looks good when the arms are relatively straight. I'd like it to be on the bicep, but the arms are still really good otherwise. My biggest issue with it is the shoulder wheels being inaccurate. I'm sure there could be a way to make them look closer to the cg model, even if it uses fake kibble over the wheel.

    Exactly. Hastak had a limited time to design this figure based on preliminary sketches. I'm not upset about anything on the figure. He will be mine.lol

    This looks great! I loved kubo. I personally would like to see a stop motion transformers movie, with the toys as the starring rolem

    I love this look personally. I like the new look enough to buy the door wings versions and the eventual 2.0. I plan on using this bee as a neo G1 updated bee

    Very true. Perhaps a section that flips over the logo that still looks like it's part of the hood?

    You're welcome, It was meant to insult the shitty design. I'll be glad to keep going if you want.
