    They made Bumblebee's face look like a child's nightmare.

    Then just pop on by Target or any other store and get him. As far as I know, MP Bumblebee is the same as the big one warming shelves... right? Might be a few cosmetic differences.

    Gotta say, though, I do like Starscream's more realistic paint job. Aside from his white jaw that makes him look like he's grinning like a maniac, or has a Santa beard.

    Yea I saw one at TRU last week when I picked up an MP Grimlock. This will be my only movie toy and I want something that looks really nice. I will use it when I take my car to car shows probably just stand it on my engine cover.

    The hand isn't clear blue but clear, and the car mode is likely all painted yellow. There's probably more than just that.

    It's a very red purple. Almost magenta.

    Great paint job on Bumblebee... I wish they could have given us a right hand instead of that overused canon. FansProject please give us a right hand for this Bumblebee! Starscream looks awesome too. Its kinda Dennis Rodman back when he was with Detroit no tatoos!

    What, is this the first time you see movie Bumblebee?

    There's a lot more then that. The mold is the same, but paintjob wise it is a LOT more topnotch. I don't often say this, but it really makes the Hasbro version look like a knock off.

    No plan to buy either. BB looks horrble and these aren't even MPs. I'll be happy with Hasbro's this time.

    I'm happy enough with my Hasbro Starscream, but that Takara Bumblebee just pisses all over the Battle Ops version. I know a lot of you will bitch that the differences aren't that great, but to my eyes, I think it looks vastly superior. If the price isn't too retarded when the pre-orders come out, I may have to spill the coin on this one.

    Well, they are definately nice figures.. Never been much of a fan of the cannon arm. Still easy pass for me.

    I'm surprised the leader class prime or buster prime hasn't been marketed as a masterpiece, or was it at one point? I forget.

    It wasn't, but if it was released now maybe it would be.

    I have the Hasbro version of SS. But I might consider the Takara version.

    Is anybody really going to pay that for a $60 toy with a slightly better paint job?



    I'm quite sure Takara have overpriced plans for that too.

    They'll probably also slap a G1 deco on it. Heck why not do Magnus as well,
    and don't forget the 'Eeeevil Convoy' and Dead(weight) Convoy repaints too.
