    It helps that it's not a Bayverse design, but a Knightverse design. ;)

    Yes, it's pretty close, I was surprised when I looked at reference stills. Was like hey, I got some Joes that look like that...

    This is it for my Bee review pics. I'll revisit over time to have fun via pics tho.

    As for Blitzwing, that's up to @decemberist and 3a, I just share what they release. :)

    I'd say about 25-30 degrees in, less outward. And it spins as well.

    It's a Bayverse design slightly tweaked by Knight. But all that aside, it's a cool figure that nicely showcases this version of Bumblebee.

    Slightly is an understatement. Virtually everything about this design is different. The only thing thatst carried over were his face elements, but those have been changed heavily too. But yes, it's a very cool figure indeed.

    Good god, it’s getting harder everyday not to order this little fella! After that Blitzwing reveal, I’m certain to cave at any moment.

    I think my only complaint is the lack of any articulated hands.

    I was surprised by that, but it's pretty standard in terms of Marvel Legends, figuarts etc. Once that set in I was cool. Tho, I would have liked a pointing finger so I can do Charlie bonding moments and stuffs. :)

    Dang, I really wish they'd kept the door wings on the design. He looks so much cuter.

    Hot damn that Bee looks awesome! Waiting for some 3P company to come up with a transformable one that has this look for bot mode.
