    I really want it to be Bumblebee. He's the only minibot on that scale chart. Kinda makes sense to release him as MP-20. No doubt he'll be in scale with others in bot mode. However, I wonder if they'll go with a realistic look for his vehicle mode or if they'll make him a chibified, penny racer VW Beetle. Hoping for the latter, to be honest.

    This is Masterpiece, if they made the doors on Jazz like the Datsun Bros we would all lose it.

    I guess it'll be BB...I don't want either BB or Jazz.
    Much prefer Mirage or Trailbreaker before they do those 2.

    What's wrong with having the option to display Jazz with or without his wings? Satisfies everyone then.

    My guess is Bumblebee simply because they've already got a headstart on the design with the old prototype Binaltech.

    Nothing wrong with the option. I'm sure the doors won't completely break down, it would just be preferable from a G1 cartoon perspective to hide the doors.

    And honestly I can see them doing something like that for a masterpiece. I mean it should be possible to work it in with the transformation. Just do a step where the doors are left out at the shoulders instead of stowed away.

    Ah but what version of Jetfire? The show model was compleatly different from the toy. Hell I imagine there are enough high end Valkyries that you can use on of them for him. Now show accurate... That would be different.

    I'm as sick of Bumblebee as everyone else, but this is different. A MP Bumblebee would be VERY cool.

    The "bee's knees" you might say!

    *ducks tomatoes....runs out of thread*

    Hrmm... which one offers the most recolor possibilities? I'd say that's the one that's likely to be made.

    For a second there, I was thinking okay, I've heard of the "Bee's Knee's" and the "Cat's Pajamas"... but never the "Duck's Tomatoes".

    a masterpiece Wheeljack would be the duck's tomatoes. That's something I could really go for.

    Especially if they add some light up function on the bits either side of his head.

    I REALLY don't see how this can be Bee.

    VW has all of a sudden changed their stance on "no war vehicles"? Now Porsche while being a German company isn't "the peoples vehicle". I can see VW Group caving on Porsche but still holding the line with VW, ESPECIALLY with the Beetle design.

    I'm hoping for the same thing. That would be a nice little extra.

    We're all thinking BumbleBee/Jazz because of the "license was very hard to obtain" line from the designer but what if you're right? Maybe it's Mirage. I would like Mirage at some point but for 20? I want MP 20 to be a big deal. Megatron or Galvatron would fit. Jetfire/Skyfire would fit. Jazz/Bumblebee would fit. Mirage? Maybe for 21.

    Ebay:
    Believe you me,if its Bee then he is automatically preordered,and he will most likely be in the $60 to $70 range as I am sure he will be slightly smaller than Sideswipe and the others, that is if TakTom hasn't raised prices.I so can't wait to see if its him,I love that little car from G1.

    Also I would flip if it is Jazz too,I want him too with a passion.

    I hope it's Bee. As "overused" he's been in later years, "Beetlebee" was always one of my favorites growing up, and the beetle is still the coolest looking car I know (together with MINIs), and a G1 MP collection just isn't complete without bee. Now I have the alternity version up there, but he'll get replaced if there's a MP version.
