    I think he's got a great behind. I wouldn't call it kibble - only thing I would maybe call kibble are his forearm fins, but I kinda like them anyway too.

    Was not too excited about the pictures of Bee by himself, but he does look like a nice accessory to MP-10.

    Looking good. He looks a bit chunky and specially from the side angles he has some issues and looks thick but hey he's small and they had to cram all that car into his bot mode. So it's good. I can't believe his height. It's going to add some nice variety to the line. Now we need some mid-range bots like Ironhide/Ratchet, Inferno/Grapple.

    I keep trying to make out the details of Spike/Daniel's face through the exo-suit bubble, but then I get distracted by the chestplate. All I see is another face. Yellow eyes and a walrus mustache over the mouth.

    I wonder if it will be? It looks as though Wheeljack's upper arms aren't painted, unlike previous MPs, so I wonder if 'Bee's forearms will be left unpainted yellow plastic? On the other hand, yellow is notoriously difficult to colour-match, so maybe they will paint him all over. (This is obviously still a painted resin prototype that we are seeing here.)

    My only complaint is the spinning chest symbol. It's a blemish on an otherwise perfect figure. Not a big deal. I'm still excited to get it!

    Yeah it could end up being like MP-18 where his hands and other parts were painted in silver and ended up being grey plastic. At least his chest and feet, the big sticking out bits, will definitely be painting since they form part of the car. What parts of Tigertrack were painted yellow?

    this thing is just about perfect.. i was never a big fan of G1 bumblebee.. but this figure looks fantastic and i can't wait for it..

    also, ever since i was a kid, i've ALWAYS wanted an exo suit.. and i've always wanted an exo suited toy. i don't know what it was about that suit.. but when i was a kid i used to lay in bed pretending i was fighting with hot rod, springer and kup. i'd move the covers and pillows around when i'd transform in my covers/pillows version of an exo suit lol. those were the days.

    i can't wait.

    Everything except the less prominent parts. So the back of the legs, the flat area around his head, and some small parts that are mostly hidden are unpainted yellow plastic. But everything else, including his shoulders, is painted yellow.

    I love the spinning chest symbol! The car mode would look a lot worse with two giant Autobot symbols on it, I think.

    Love the new pics. Certainly a must-buy for me - hell I've had him, WJ and UM on preorder since BBTS put up the listings.

    Something about how soft the face detail is still bugs me (hehe) but overall it looks great.

    BII looks better. This looks unrefined.

    This looks really good but, $70 for a scout size figure? No way! I think I'm going to wait for the inevitable KO for half the price.
