    I introduce Neoscanning Bumblebee.
    This Neoscanning Bumblebee is Japan-limited specifications. It was going to release it on December 28, but TOMY led in TOKYO MOTOR SHOW2011 and sold it.The body color has the impression that is near to Camaro which TOMY holds. The stripe of the body has a common point.
    I asked a woman of the staff for a photograph.:D

    The package is specifications same as BEE for HASBRO. A logo and explanation of TOMY are attached to a package board.

    Contents of the MOTOR SHOW held commemorative precedent sale put a seal in the front of a package.

    The toy has the impression that some dies deteriorated. A neck of BEE is slow.
    The coming together of parts seems to be slightly bad.

    This is to match the factory colours and striping of a Camaro. And I dislike.

    Yeah, I keep seeing mention of this guy and I've been thinking what's the big deal? So it looks more like the street vehicle? I mean, that's nice I suppose, but it's really just another of however many Bumblebee molds and repaints already out there.

    Thank you, though, for the extensive pictures and comparisons. Especially next to Hasbo 'Bee--that kinda helped clear up what he was all about.

    I like this paint more, but can't justify the price hike.

    Brighter yellow, less paint, and mold degradation?

    Well, the mechtech weapon looks better in that color, at least.

    I honestly don't get it. Plenty of other figures they could have improved the paint job on, but they made a more plain and ugly Bumblebee.
    Factory schmactory... So now people who own the actual factory colored camaro can get this and lie to their friends, saying "See, my car looks JUST like Bumblebee!" because they were sad after buying the actual car in those colors, thinking they just bought Bumblebee, only to later realize the colors are way off.

    It's near impossible to get excited over a movie Bumblebee anymore. There's just too many of them.

    oh, the Japanese and their love of exclusive releases to coincide with events. :D 
    but i think it will go on the cheap on sites like Mandrake Jp. and etc. Then I might be tempted to snag it on sale, maybe? that yellow is almost too bright...

    You got that right, even if I'm a Bumblebee fan, I just feel there are far too many repaints. I'm still going to get this because I'm sort of a completist, but I'm not really excited about it. :( 

    A crystal version without any paint would've been much better, IMO. There's a KO out there, but I want a legit one.

    I don't see anything special about it. I really don't think we need anymore BB variations.

    Is Neoscanning Bumblebee exclusive to the convention?

    Sorry, but this ranks right up there as one of the most pointless repaints of all time.

    Not feeling it. I mean...really? I was expecting MORE paint apps in robot mode at least but no extra paints on a figure molded in much brighter yellow makes it look even MORE bland than the US release.

    No.
    It's just a early selling.
    There is also a regular release (Dec 17th maybe).

    Thanks for the mention on the headline story! :)  Of course, the whole G1-esque aspect could just be a coincidence, when really he's just intended as a production-color version, but I know I'll be getting him specifically to place with my G1 Move repaints. Now I just have to pick up one of those old First Strike Optimus Primes.... it's a shame the ROTF Leader figure never got a G1 repaint.
