    The car mode looks too squared off.
    Would look better for cliffjumper

    You know what, yeah. This would actually work pretty well as cliff.

    Sad that Hasbro didn't takes notes how to make BB less chubby than toy.

    I mean, it’s an impressive figure but that’s far from perfect too. Those sculpt breaking hinges are only passable because it’s like 2 inches tall and the back doesn’t look to be very clean either, especially the legs.

    That's definitely a solid Bee, I own the mold but as Bugbite.

    That said I don't really have an issue with Bee being chubby since that's always kinda been part of his appeal to me: dinky vehicle = dinky robot mode.

    I think this does the alt mode better:

    Robot mode is kinda meh.

    But it is a bit cheaper at least.

    Which MP Bumblebee are you referring to? There's two versions, the first version was similar in proportion to this new '86 Bee.

    I dunno bro I always felt this guy looked like a cheap knockoff. The plastic kinda looks cheap. Yeah the company who made it didn't put enough love in it unlike Aoyi Mech (who does sometimes use cheap plastic, but it doesn't look cheap like this).

    You'll get no argument from me.

    Car still looks better, tho.
    Even has metallic blue windows.

    Looks like his transformation uses similar engineering to the Buzzworthy Core version (the one with Spike)

    The feet being so big is a result of not using the MPs engineering for that area. People whine about the foot depth on that toy but this Bee has ankles halfway up his shin

    And in fact SS86 Bee was designed by the same person as that original MP (Shogo Hasui), uses many of the same details (on hands, shoulders, etc) and looks as though it has much the same transformation. They are very similar aside from the chibi alt mode used for SS86.

    The face sculpt on the MP was pretty horrendous though, and I’m glad the SS86 is using a proper yellow. (Did VW force that weird orange on the original MP and Netflix Bee?)
