    Like you said in an earlier post, it's like a wrist length too long?

    But when the elbows are bent, you don't really notice it as much. Plus I don't think the big one has that problem?

    I don’t think the wrists are too long so much as the space below the elbow joint is, but that may have been intentional to keep the forearm sculpt intact but allow room for the elbow to bend deep enough on a single swivel. They do look fine bent.

    Hard to tell but the big one looks fine in that regard, no doubt due to having double jointed elbows. (Well, I assume it does)

    The arms are definitely a little too large, but not deal-breaking. But now knowing that there's apparently gonna be a bigger 15 cm version, I wanna wait and see how that one measures up first.

    Kind of unrealistic, but I hope the larger version has multiple face expressions, like a figma. I know Bumble doesn't have a mouth, but he was good at emoting with his eyes.

    Trumpeter's last product update on their site has a picture of Bumblebee, still listed as an August release. There's an item number and height... and literally nothing else. Their website is very poor.

    Very excited to pick this guy up, really hopeful the rest of the characters get made. I especially want Wheeljack and Shockwave and however many Starscream/Bitzwing redecoes they want to do.

    Are these studio series size would be cool to have them be around the same height like bumblebee if I ever decide to buy the vw again could leave it in its vw car and use the model kit for robot mode.

    I just realized the headlights are the "3D" stickers a lot of old Gundam models used for chest sensors or orb-like details. That's an awesome way to give clear headlights without needing a clear runner or having to paint a clear chest piece.

    I'm still concerned about availability. I feel like with an August release we should have preorders by now. HLJ carries Trumpeter models but no listing for Bumblebee.

    They are, but nothing saying the BB kits will see as wide a release.

    I'm really stupid because I forgot I modded my SS Bumblebee to be shorter.

    Though given he was too tall, the model Bumblebee may just squeeze in size-wise next to SS Shatter and Dropkick.
