    Very nice.

    However with 3P doing so well these days I don't feel the level of jealously I used to have at not being able to afford these.

    Yeah, something about Bee didn't quite look right in TLK. I think it has something to do with his proportions and how he moves. It was all rather... off.

    It's definitely the proportions.

    The vehicle mode parts are using two different scales. The new chest-bumper and door wings are too small and out of scale when compared to the wheels and Camaro fenders on his thighs.

    Yeah, that's it! The only question now is why the designers went with such a strange design choice. I mean, if it was to make him look younger or something, it wouldn't make sense at this point in Bee's character growth.

    I think it was probably to make him look bigger (since in previous movies he's been pretty small, but still the tallest of the regular car transformers) so that he didn't look like Optimus could just step on him and win that fight. One of them was definitely either upscaled or downscaled for that sequence.

    Wow!!! This is one beautiful piece of art!!! It's like 98% screen accurate and the attention to detail is fantastic! My only complaint, his shoulder wheels do not feature his screen-accurate rims.


    THIS!

    His doors are literally cut in half! And no need to go on again about how he still has all the last generation Camaro pieces plus the spoiler from DOTM.

    I like TLK Bee's design, but holy moly did they just not give a shit about the realism of his TF scheme. Parts out of scale, discontinuity between robot and alt mode details. Remember how in TF1, despite the super complex designs, there was a real attempt to keep as much continuity between modes to make the TFs as convincing as those designs could be? I miss that.

    I guess they got lazy and reused his DOTM head.

    Was there any difference? They’ve got the new battlemask.

    It’s nicely done as ever but as other have said it goes to highlight how unfeasbaly tiny the car front is on the chest, against the new proportions of the rest of the body.

    I think the idea was to make his proportions more humanoid, I guess so he fits with the other Autobots a little better, but really it’s more of an obvious fudge than usual. Apart from Daytrader’s incredible shrinking windscreen hat.

    Honestly, Bee was already probably the most humanoid Autobot aside from Optimus in the first trilogy. Ratchet had weird lanky arms, Ironhide was a squat walking tank. Jazz was pretty close too, but the rest of the Autobots ROTF-DOTM were still pretty humanoid with slightly exaggerated proportions. AoE was when we got REALLY HUMAN looking autobots.
