    Probably not, the size of this figure's head is about 2 inches/4cm tall by about 1.5-2 inches wide, so it's pretty big, would probably look a tad big on even a Masterpiece.

    The Optimus looks a bit strange, but Bumblebee looks pretty cute

    What they should have done is give them standard anime robot eyes like you see in most Transformers series , instead they went a more realistic route which looks weird

    Huh. So these are actually being produced by Sentinel instead of Goodsmile like usual. Interesting.

    Bumblebee with battle mask is great, even though it reminds me more of a rabbit.

    Optimus looks odd...maybe it's the bright silver on the face? Bee looks perfect. If it was cheaper I'd get one.

    Okay, that definitely makes him look like a baby robot. :lol  They're cute, but I'll pass. Nendoroids are too pricy for me.

    I'd buy that Bee in a heartbeat.

    Finally Bee is going back to his "smol" roots.

    my first thought was \'I don\'t need to look at this article; I\'m not interested in stuff like this\'

    but the pics are really charming and full of nice detailing...

    and BB looks like he\'s doing a voodoo move with his hand in pic 8...

    For me its all of the tech detail on Optimus's mouth plate that is throwing me off. If it didnt have all of those lines it would look much better.

    Not crazy about the regular Bee head but the alt "Hornet" helmet head looks fantastic.

    Nendoroids are usually great looking, but definitely way overpriced for what they are.  If they were cheaper, I would get these.

    Yeah, that faceplate detail wasn't that visible (or deep) in the film but for some reason the figures of this guy like to over pronounce the shit out of it. Plus, for a chibi figure, the less detail the better.

    I\'ve always had a stance of \"if it doesn\'t transform I dont want it\" view of TF merch but... these are very cute.
