    Although I haven't built a Trumpeter kit yet, I am a veteran of scale model building and have seen some amazing builds done with Trumpeter's kits.

    And yes, they often have dimensional issues, but they can be corrected.

    Dropkick and his abusive GF. It progressed into my headcanon now.

    She definitely wore the pants, but I don't think she was abusive towards him at all. They seemed to like each other just fine.

    Yeah it was kinda neat seeing Decepticons who were professional and got along.

    They were definitely some of the most "decepticon-y" of all the decepticons we've seen on screen so far. I like that SOME of them are more brutish or even animalistic, but the main guys really should be more intelligent and cunning. Like Barricade in TF07, or Laserbeak in DOTM.

    Not bad at all. The articulation looks unrestricted and well placed, the detail and paint is good for such a small figure, and I certainly hope there’s merit to that character lineup on the side.

    I agree except the ankles don't seem to be able to bend forward enough for that squatting pose to not look awkward. Still if this is cheap enough I won't mind.

    Might have to wait for the bigger one for friendly crouching, with all its cooking multi-jointed flexibility:

    Though I gotta say it's mildly impressive that this had seemingly deep enough knee and hip motion to almost crouch were it not for the ankles. I'd really like to see how close it can get.

    Looking at the (blurry) pic of the runners, I'm almost certain Bee has swappable door wings for folded options. He also comes with fists, so the open hands aren't the only option. It also comes with a battle mask, so I'm guessing whoever took these pics just snapped it together with a few options for quick photos.

    This guy's gonna look great with deluxe Shatter and Dropkick.

    Yeah I think they're right there next to the door wing pieces. They look like the same thing just folded up. I think some people like the door wings. I personally left the ones that came with my 3A Bee in the box and haven't regretted it. Might not even take these off the runner TBH.

    I'm happy they're an option, but I like rolly-polly kibble-lite Bumblebee. :D 

    I am seriously perplexed by the massive vacancy in the grey runner, though. It's not like there's gates suggesting a removed section, there's just and unnecessarily large gap there.

    This Bumble looks really cool, is it up for preorder yet? I'm dying for an accurate figure of him, but 3Zero is way out of my budget. This looks affordable yet still a great figure.

    Damnit, now I'm imagining Dropkick in a skirt. I may think his voice is hot, but that isn't my fetish...

    I mean, most of us wouldn't be here if we didn't think Peter Cullen's voice wasn't the sexiest evar.

    The molding looks pretty good. Not sure how they managed to give him gorilla arms though. Still, I'm curious to see how the larger one turns out. Depending on the part separation, I may consider buying one.

    His arms are pretty long compared to his body in the film. Not as long as the model, though, but they were already at the maximum length of "don't look weird."
