    He's my favorite of the MPMs, but now having seen the movie I really wish he was more accurate to that design. Oh well you will still have fun with him for sure!

    I had told myself that if I liked the movie, I'd treat myself to this guy. freemantoys on ebay has it for $60.99, and ebay is running a 15% off coupon (POPUPSAVINGS), so I got out the virtual door for $51.84 shipped. It's my first Masterpiece, and I think I am going to limit myself to G1 live action renditions, which should keep it manageable.

    Am I correct in thinking that the Hasbro and Takara releases are identical with the exception of packaging language?

    Yes... and the use of black screws on the Takara version.

    My package is out for delivery, which seems incredibly fast for free shipping from Hong Kong. Assuming it arrives in one piece, freemantoys really hit a home run, so I wanted to share.

    Not sure if this is widely known. But it personally blew my mind a bit. I guess Bee does infact have a double knee joint? It’s super high up his hip but it’s there with a ratchet and everything.

    That was true for sure on MPM-3 but is that confirmed for MPM-7 as well? Has anyone seen both in hand? Thanks!

    I don't own the Hasbro version but my Takara version has black screws.

    Saw this in Hamley’s in St Petersburg, Russia today. Three of them on the shelf - always nice to see Masterpiece Transformers in an actual shop! Asking price of around 11,000 roubles ($166) was a bit too rich for me, though. Did really enjoy the movie, so I was still tempted :thumb

    not sure this has been posted, but Amazon Japan has this guy for sale @60% off....so he winds up at just over $39 (plus shipping). Not sure if it ships to the US tho....
