    He's very detailed, and painted beautifully!! The plastic doesn't feel like your typical thick plastic, but doesn't seem like that's gonna be an issue.

    My only issue with mine is that the back panels are loose, but they still sit in place. The smokestacks seem to be loose on the side of the robot mode, though I haven't gotten in there to see if they're just not tabbed in place. And that the right wheel at the bottom of the right foot seems loose, but again, still sits in place.

    I bought it from a seller in China I buy from all the time, and it got here in about a week. He still has 5 available, here's the listing:

    The only movie BB's I like are the Masterpiece, Battle Blades and Cyberfire versions. All three are a really nice size and solid representations. The only downside for any of them is that the weapon isn't integrated into the MP version. If they'd have given him the integrated weapon instead of parts-forming it the figure would be damn near perfect.
    I owned the SS Bumblebee for a day before returning it. Floppy, tiny waste of time.
    I'm also not bothering with the new SS VW Bumblebee. I truly loathe having to disassemble and reassemble parts. Battleblade had the mask, axe and cannon all inclusive, which is why I will forever prefer it.

    Masterpiece bee is 100% the best movie bee ever made. But I also really like the original ‘07 movie concept camaro bee. Specifically the one wearing his battle mask.

    I grabbed the Takara Hammer version of the TLK wave 3 mold. It's nice. Holds together better than the SS version.

    could have sworn battle blades bee shows why integration wouldn't work (for arms the size of his chest)

    Not just Battle Blades Bee, all previous "best version of" releases had integrated weapons and were worse for it. I'll take MPM Bee and MPM Barry over Battle Blades and Human Alliance any day of the week.

    I love the MPM Bumblebee. It sucks that we're finally getting a collector oriented line after the mass budget cuts. Imagine the studio series line done with ROTF line parts count/plastic weight.

    Yeah that one haha. I still have it and it’s still great. Too big for modern stuff though.

    ....This is the result of showing restraint when buying TF's. I'll be getting the upcoming two pack to finish the evolution.

    SS. I got a good copy, so it's really fun to play with
    plus it puts the cannon in the correct arm and uses a simple peg connection instead of a mushroom joint that makes me nervous every time I want to swap it out

    I found a Hot Rod today at Ollie's (a slag-ton of Hot Rods, actually!). Pics to follow later.
