    I agree, except for mine's in the first run, though that'd be my luck.

    They could always release the knife with another figure, a lot of companies do similar things where they create a piece for a previous figure that gets bundled with someone else who can't even use it.

    As someone who probably missed out on pre-ordering for the 1st batch, If anyone doesn't like their copy I'll gladly take it off your hands. :p 
    /s

    Looks like a mix of both 3in and 6 in from the likes of Marvel Legends and Star Wars. Not that I'm too picky about scaling with humans as most characters I get are like superhumans anyway lol.

    Yes I know that. But 3A is aware NOW that Bumblebee had a blade so they should take steps to rectify the deficiency. They could even charge money for it and it would sell, so it's win-win for everybody.

    Seems to be this one, with the hair colour altered (hence no shots of the face!), or maybe a head swap?

    From earlier in thread. Yeah, it's from Locker Toys. However, in normal lighting situations may not be the best fig for Charlie. Little too adult, and the skin tones won't match. Good base to customize from tho if you do that kind of thing.

    This looks amazing! Absolutely breath taking.

    The only problem I have with it is that there's no wrist blade. It was a prominent weapon in the movie, and I wish they would have included it. I hope they'll do figures for Dropkick and Shatter too. I'm still going to get the Studio Series figures for both of them, but having figures like these would be amazing.

    Also, anyone know where the Charlie Watson figure used here is from?

    3A didn’t get the art files for the blade til it was too late, which is why it’ll be with the premium (aka bigger) version but not with this one. Personally I’m OK with it. If they didn’t include the blaster though that’s be a different story...

    How much more expensive would this premium version be than the standard?

    I have to say that I think this is your best gallery to date - and I’m a fan of your others! The photos recreating poses and scenes from the film are truly spectacular. I loved my MPM figure until I saw these, darn you. :)  Now I have a preorder for this and long for the day that we get transforming figures with this sort of detail.

    Yeah this one is just fine for me, especially since I don't need Bumblebee to tower over anything else (unless maybe it'll go well with larger human figures?). I do have their TLK Prime on preorder though, which will actually scale very well with this Bee.

    I kind of slept on this so I'll be ordering the 2nd batch Bumblebee, really hoping they do Optimus and more of the Cybertron characters. There shouldn't be any difference between 1st release right?

    I imagine Bee as a punchy shooty type if he ever was in a fight like with all the villains. Heck he barely uses the knife anyway.

    I'm pretty sure he used it more than the gun.
