    Did he ever actually transform though? It's been a while since I watched it. All I remembered was the bridge scene.

    They showed his Truck mode and his bot mode, but not the transformation.

    Then again not many MP's are accurate to their on-screen transformations, let alone MPMs, so it's not exactly new.

    I wonder if this will make me sell Freedom Leader.

    But I know this will have lackluster paint.

    Wait for KO? Or the trans craft version which will probably be superior atleast in accuracy. Their paint ain’t the best so far with Bumblebee.

    True, it's great with options. Should've been clearer that it was just my personal opinion :)

    They probably mean that some of us prefer that the design and engineering are more important than if a figure scales perfectly.

    Although with this figure I don’t think it’d be a problem to achieve both.

    I remembered the bridge scene but thought it was an Easter egg. Either missed or completely forgot about him later meeting with Prime in bot mode.

    So I didn't remember that they actually tied the Bee movie Prime bot with his more G1ish alt.

    I did not get Freedom Leader or any of the other Third Party Options... and we will have to wait until the honest reveal, otherwise there is a big bag of rock salt to consider until we know this is legitimate.

    After sleeping on it, I’m settling for very optimistic. The MPM line seems to be doing good, but I don’t honestly know because I don’t own any of them. This is probably going to be my first and only MPM figure. Sure, the image is super low res, but that’s not too much of an issue for me.

    I’m more waiting for official reveals of something. Leader Galvatron, please. This guy will probably fall into the same release schedule as Ratchet and Screamer from last year.

    For everyone who thinks this is 3A, remember that Earthrise bluestreak's first leaked photos looked just like smokescreen and people thought it was a digibash, but they were just at a slightly different angle, just like this new mpm box.

    I don't think Hasbro/Takara will redesign MPM-7, but I hope at least we'll get better MPM Bee in his Camaro from Bumblebee Movie

    Coming to a Target near you for 50% off. I thought the Ratchet was the last fart from the MPM line. Ill stick with Studio Series to get my Bayverse lineup.

    This is a great Prime design so I'd be inclined to get this (but maybe not Day 1) as someone who didn't get the MPM Beetle Bumblebee.

    I'd love to see the rest of the 07 cast first.

    I was a bit doomer last night, but it doesn't mean they are moving away from the 1st movie cast since they still have 77 Bumblebee slated for this year. We might only get one 07 movie character each year until the cast is complete. Or at least I hope so. As far as I'm concerned, Blackout is the only one remaining that has a figure worth displaying with my MPMs.

    Fake or not, it's going to happen sooner or later.

    At first glance, it sure looks legit to me :D  I don't immediately see any telltale obvious signs of fakery, and it's a lot of work to fake a blurry photo like that, and you don't often see people putting that much effort into it.

    Normally I'd be opposed to MP V2 or V3... but with MPM BB movie BB, I'd make an exception.

    Fake or not, kudos to the effort put in to make it look like a "I shouldn't be taking a picture of this" picture.

    I might actually have to get this, as I liked Bumbleebee Prime more than the Bay design
