    I like the look of this but have no need for a one off. Now if they have more like this coming, that's another story.

    If this is really 12cm tall, there's no doubt in my mind that this will fit in with the Mastermind figures, so it's more like a continuation of that line instead of a one-off.

    I hope he fits in the tracks from that line too.

    It's a pity it's likely not going to include a Centurion head, but I'm still going to get this. Maybe Toyhax will do one of their parts kits for him or something.

    Ended up preordering this guy... my first Third Party Figure. I love Hearts of Steel's designs and I love Bumblebee so he will be a great addition to my collection. And yes, I do hope this does really well and they do more of these figures.

    I'm 95% sure that this guy will be my first 3P figure as well. I'm kinda conflicted on my feelings for 3P as a whole, but I'm heavily considering getting only Legends from third party companies. And since I'm in need of a Bumblebee for my collection, and I like HoS, this is the perfect opportunity for me to test the waters,

    3P for me started with getting characters or iterations Has-Tak wouldn't bother with, and HoS is the ultimate definition of 3P filling that gap.

    It's great to see Bee next to Commander! Is that Starscream an OS KO?

    They've all been badly edited into one photo. None of them are in scale. Starscream should be the same size as prime

    Thanks waffle. I wonder if that's an accurate size comparison to Commander

    Yaaaaaay. :)  Still hoping for an alternate Centurion head!

    And I too have this guy pre-ordered! $30 shipped was too good to refuse.

    I want them to make new versions of these guys anyway. :D  Especially Shockwave and Optimus! Love those designs.

    The MMC figures were great for their time, but the quality and durability of 3rd party figs has increased exponentially since then.

    Yeah, how cool would a cannon meatron be! That said, Cyclops is kinda my grail. When it came out I was too young to buy it and I've never seen a complete one since
