While Toy Fair 2012 is happening over on this side of the pond, Japan's Wonder Festival is currently going and while toys (such as Figma Link) are getting the spotlight from many sites, a bit of Transformers-relevant news has popped up: Namely the announcement that there will be a Revoltech Movie Bumblebee in the Sci-Fi Revoltech line. While no price is announced at this time, the toy will be a June 2012 release.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why?!?!?! I really wanna ask: WHY?!?!? If there was a second DOTM Revoltech figure why we couldnt get Sentinel Prime?!!! T_____________________T I so wanted to display a kick-ass Revoltech Sentinel next to my Revoltech DOTM Prime.
Oh well, at least the Bee mold doesnt look bad at all. Not sure to pre-order it thought. Maybe when we get more pics of him with full colors and accesories?

Any line marginally-related to transformers nowadays cannot exist WITHOUT Bumblebee.
megatronski
Oooh. nice.
SouthtownKid
Hopefully, a DotM Megatron is still forthcoming.
SPLIT LIP
Would've liked Sentinel, but BB's cool, too. The design lends itself well to revoltech's exaggerated proportions and anime-esque poses.
MegaHavok
does revoltech ever do villians?
Silk Spectre
I like these.

If they made Ironhide, I would buy any others they made. I'll probably end up getting Bee.
skiss
Damn.... May actually have to get optimus and bumblebee. I don't collect movie toys but I have to admit revoltechs of movie toys are a great way to fill that void in my collection. Getting them into awesome movie poses is the selling point for me. Now that I know they are going to try and continue the line I think I'll jump on this band wagon.

Any news on if they really do plan on giving us more characters from the live action universe?

Tell that to the Yamaguchi line.

Revoltech did released G1 style Megatron & Starscream figures.

Those Revoltechs were done pre-Movie blitz, however. Kaiyodo knows just as well as anyone else that the two most iconic characters from the Movieverse are Optimus and Bumblebee.

Was hoping for Megatron. Dammit. Can't say I'm surprised though, unfortunately.
skiss
Now they just need to follow-up with Megatron and Blackout

While Megatron is definitely feasible, I doubt Kaiyodo would make Blackout. They'd most likely go for yet another high-profile design and one of the more iconic characters from the Movie era such as Starscream or Ironhide.

*Yawns*
Pass...

Looks pretty cool.
OP84
Maybe they could at least release a DOTM Sentinel and DOTM Megatron.
Paxtin
Anyone who honestly didn't think Bumblebee would be the next one they did was dreaming.

They were dreaming within a dream, that was all a dream.
Timesynch
I knew it.

Really hope Megatron or Starscream's next but seriously doubt it. Oh well, at least my custom Deluxe Starscream can fill the void and looks perfectly in scale next to Revoltech Prime.

Odd, the door appear to be positioned like most of the toys rather than from the center like the movie.

Most toys don't do this because it's too complicated (even though the original concept BB did it fine), but this isn't a transforming toy and the intent is accuracy.

Odd.

More like RevoltING, am I right?

hahaha nice one.
I'm excited for this figure. Gonna get it. Surprised they are continuing the transformers revoltech line. Since they did though its likely there will be megatron and more in revoltech.
EnerJohn
No more dumblebees!
UnicronFTW
Glad I passed on the DMK.

Cool, I really like the DotM Prime and the previous G1 figures, so I'm in.

I DO hope they can get to some other Movieverse characters though (Ironhide, Megs, Sentinel, Shockwave, Sideswipe). After only five G1 Revoltechs (only four molds), I'm hoping they don't limit us to a whopping two Movieverse versions.
pulsedragon20
They really want to kill us with Bumblebee don't they...
Seeker
I'll pass. This Bumblebee craze has left me cold.
tom servo
Now I'll probably have to buy this and DotM Prime to jumpstart my Revoltech collection. Huh.
webz
Forget DOTM Megatron. ROTF Megatron was far cooler looking.
EmperorDinobot
I don't care if this is the God of Bumblebees. It's still another Bumblebee.
Enigma2K2
Oh for the love of Primus... ANOTHER Bumblebee?!?!?
lord ginrai
I was hoping for Bee to be released in this line. Like Split Lip said, the design lends itself extremely well to the exaggerated proportions the Revo's have.

Bee's movie design just kicks so much ass and this looks to be the most accurate representation yet.
Can't wait to own this

EDIT: Hmm, I hope his door wings can be positioned more like in the movies. Ie: attached to his spine rather than the sides of his back.
[Wing_Saber-X]
Revoltech BB looks nice! yea so bought.
SantaClaus
Woah nice image Type-R. Looks really curvy and mean. can't wait for the gleaming yellow paint.
MegaHavok
Looks pretty damn cool, to bad the line is just a tad too pricey for my tastes

Pretty much this. I understand why they chose 'Bee, but I would've killed for a Revoltech Sentinel! That would've been so cool! But hey...I'll probably still get him.

It's a sad day when revoltech becomes a pricey toy line, it used to be that Revoltech was the cheap but quality toy line
Russian fan
Wow! I just have a big shelf, a lot of empty space left!
Just it's a pity, that they would not be in the same scale.

I tell ya i really hate bumblebee anymore. He used to be a fun charcater cause he was the udnerdog...the little wimpy guy who no one though could do much but always did alot. with him being so warrior-ish in every incarnation almost (animated being an exception...that was more of the bumblebee i liked) its really taken away form what made the character so liekable...plus hasbro shoves BILLIONS of f&^king bungholebee figrues out every chance they get and its like "okay i never wanna see another bumblebee figure made EVER!" KINDA FEELING. Oiy and worse off he dont even transform...so easy to pass on this.
LeTigre
Way, WAY better than the DMK. Sorta want.
skiss
I just realized there's a really good chance this will end up a cliffjumper repaint. I'm all in!

Yep, THIS is what I was hoping for when the DMK was announced last year.
Also that new pic is gorgeous. Can't wait to see this guy in colour.
Detroa
I admit it looks cool and that I will probably buy it but damn... I was hoping for Meg.

Now with DOTM being so faraway and that Bumblebee not being even close to its release, I assume there's little to no chance of Megatron happening down the line.

The idea of never owning a somewhat accurate representation of that amazing DOTM Megatron design makes me sad.

There's actually a good chance it won't...we haven't seen a Cliffjumper redeco of a Movie Bumblebee mold since the first film (Deluxe, Legends) unless you count the 3-inch Titanium that popped up during RotF, plus Revoltech never bothered with the conventional redeco choices that Takara so often covers (Skywarp, Thundercracker, Black Convoy, clear Optimus or Starscream, Black Rodimus) for their original G1 Transformers aside from White Optimus/Ultra Magnus and there's no indication they'll redeco the DotM Optimus they've already done. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think this Revoltech line has really been geared toward redecos much anyways.
