Yeah really. Now that would be news!
I just think they're being overzealous categorizing these things as "Masterpieces," especially Battle Ops Bumblebee which could do with a million improvements.
People had something to complain about for every other Masterpiece too. It comes with the territory.
You think wrong then.
It's not a Leader class figure. Bigger, gimmickier and pricier.
I'm tempted because of the chrome and the clear hand...
If this were in scale with the leader figures I'd be all over it. As it is, I have absolutely no place for a Bumblebee that's larger than Prime and Starscream.
You could always put him on a seperate display and get this guy to go with him.
well lets just hope this fills the void & desire for the master piece bumblebee toy.
I'm just dreading the day hasbro begs/pleads/forces takara to make a master piece styled version of G-1 Bumblebee.
Lol, nice photo. It's like Sam is using himself as a ventriloquist dummy.
Takara's version of this figure looks great; I wish they'd hit it with the shrink ray the way they made a voyager-class out of leader Prime.
They (practically) did. It's Battle Blades Bumblebee.
the purpose of the masterpiece line was to make definitive versions of iconic characters, it has never been stated that it is g1 only
this bumblebee is an iconic character, maybe one of the most iconic characters in transformers history next to g1 optimus prime....EVERYONE knows this bumblebee
apparantly logic took a day off today based on the many posts in this thread
it looks great, i like the chrome wheels, i might actually get this, idk
No it's the fanboy mentality. If fans was in charge of Transformer releases. Transformers would have been a dead toyline a loge tome ago.
I saw that Bumblebee yesterday at Wal-Mart and almost picked it up! Should I get it? Looked awesome! But I've already got a nice movie figure Bumblebee.
At least, I think it was that one. It was certainly big enough and had all the weapons.
I couldn't care less if there are movie figures in the Masterpiece line. I just genuinely can't decide if it's worth paying twice the price (probably) for a few more paint apps.
I think that Battle Blade Bumblebee should be resized to be bigger (in scale with Leader Starscream) and callen Masterpiece...
Battle Ops Bee just has one hand! (yes, he have the fingers in the cannon, but that's ridiculous... really...) takara could have just modified that part a bit to have both a real hand and the cannon as in Battle Blade Bee, well.. just my opinion
That would be sweet.
Yes and no. Transformation is similar, but robot mode is a far cry from the Battle-Ops mold. By comparison, Battle Blade Bumblebee looks like he just spent the last twelve months in a Cybertronian concentration camp.
Barricade should be the next Masterpiece. He'd be awesome to have!
Different strokes, I guess. I'd love a ~Voyager-sized, MP-level detail G1 'Bee to stand next to OP, Grimmy, and Rodimus.
