    It is very nice.

    If I didn't already have a nicely painted DMK, I'd be all over it.

    The finish on Minerva and Ginrai look really good in these samples. Ginrai needs to get his happy ass up to preorder.

    Yeah, this one pretty much makes the DMK 'Bee obsolete... and it's more durable, too!

    Makes me regret purchasing and taking the time to assemble DMK Bee, honestly. :p  But I'll be getting this one for sure.

    Very nice sculpt of Revotech BB. That said, I'm not a fan of the character at all so this is a pass for me but I do admire that Kaiyodo is learning from some past issues with their Revoltech Optimus Prime, which is still a decent sculpt but several things like too small/weak joints in places (necessitating some joint parts-swapping) and oddly extraneous accessories (too many silly molded guns and no 2nd sword) kept him from being a true winner. Hopefully they continue the line with another movie character but I doubt it, as much as I'd love to see a DOTM Megatron, Starscream, or Sentinel Prime.

    The only thing that has me worried about Revotech Bee is the joint system, sculpt wise, he looks amazing.

    I dunno, I don't really like the Revoltech line. I have a few and they aren't as good as many other figures I have. My Revoltech Rodimus' hand broke off, too. Damn quality control. But anyway, I'm not big on the movie aesthetic, so Bumblebee is an easy pass for me. Mainly because I'm already stabbing my wallet, beating it senseless, and committing other violent crimes against it.

    But damn, CM's Corp..... TAKE MY MONEY. NOW. I'm also tempted to buy the Nightbeat Minerva, too....

    Aren't Minerva and Ginrai like 8" scale or something? I kind of wish they were smaller, maybe half that. I like them but I don't really want something that large.
