    Gorgeous paintjob, but if that mold is worth the money...Eeeeh.

    EDIT: Wait a minute, what happened to the much darker gray? Bummer.

    A ROTF box disguised as an MP box? Even the packaging has an alt-mode.

    You know, when the toy was solicited, i gave out blue-bloody-murder about the price, but it seems to follow the basic pattern of Takara multiplying Hasbro prices by 2 to 2.5 times.



    Was that just the Costco version?

    If the mold was good, I wouldn't have minded the price increase, because that paintjob really is nice. Same with Starscream, basically, but where Screamer has a terrific mold, BB is just way to gimmicky and even lacking. Doesn't help that he's considerably more expensive then Starscream either...

    Not sure, but I think both the Costco and MP versions originally had darker grey...Unless it was either a trick of the light or if I'm remembering things wrong.

    I thought the transformation on Battle Ops Bumblebee was pretty rad, especially the legs... This deco is by far the nicest with the painted left hand and chromed rims...

    MP's often come out in other Asian Countries at a cheaper Price so if you can get one from Hong Kong it might be a fair bit cheaper perhaps.

    So the main differences are better car paint, chrome rims and a coloured hand then ?

    I think it's by far the best movie bumblebee ever released.
