    Not sure if I'm looking in the right places for a MP scaled Bumblebee (that doesn't cost $100), but I can't seem to find a good mold. Is the KO of the MP even good or are there 3P companies working on one?

    You've got KO MP21 which is pretty good and some un boxed MP45 (and some boxed KO MP45 that some suspect).

    Each have their own threads. I've had the KO and original MP21 and not much between them. Have an unboxed MP45 and that's good also.

    Don't know of any 3P G1 versions though

    I love Bii. Some joints are a little loose and I wish he had more paint, but I prefer him over both official offerings.

    It doesn't get mentioned very often these days, but for a while people were using a Bumblebee from a company called Artfeather for their MP. I personally don't care for it's look, but I can't make that decision for you so I figured I'd let you know about it so you can make your choice.

    I have the KO of the gold repaint and an official original MP Bee. They are very close in terms of quality. I still prefer the original mold to the new one.

    Thanks everyone who's posted so far. I'll look into your suggestions. If anyone else has more suggestion I'm still all ears.
