    Just yesterday, we reported on the first in-package shots of the exclusive metallic Bumblebee that was available in Japan at Lawson's for those who purchased a ticket to the movie. Thanks to the Japanese Transformers Image Board, out of package images are now available in both modes. Images below!

    I believe it was about $33 USD when combined with the movie ticket you had to purchase at Lawson's. But then, there's the likely cost multiplier called the "lovely secondary market".

    Lol I was gonna say that!

    "Hey Optimus! It's me Bumblebee! I got an upgrade and feel like a gold bug!"

    "And that is what we are going to call you from now on, Goldbug!"

    "Gee Optimus, thanks! But I kinda was hoping I could still be called Bumblebee!"

    "Quiet Goldbug!"

    "Shutting up Prime!"

    I know I'm in the minority too...nice looking, but it doesn't really do it for me. The flat paint works much better for me since BB wasn't exactly shiny in the movie.

    Then again, I didn't get this mold in the first place since I preferred the '08 BB. :p

    Looks good as a robot, but the metallic finish kind of accentuates the separate panels of the car mode.
