    That paint(/Toyhax stickers) would completely fix the alt mode for me.

    Looking at these two images, I feel like extending the windows the way they did was absolutely definitely one of the changes they made to avoid this just being a volkswagen beetle, because damn that's just a volkswagen beetle now

    As silly and dumb as this sounds seeing this bit of animation I could feel the kid in me shout "That's so cool!".

    I realized accuracy was only a…

    ….partially accurate….

    adjective for Studio Series once the Bumblebee movie figures showed up.

    Yes yes we know someone will say “well they ARe ACCuRaTE tO SAHMtHiNGgGgGgGgG” but not completely accurate.

    SS86 probably just had an open spot available

    it is accurrate to some shots for example those that i put, if we take those shots the masterpiece is not 100 acurrate to do that it should have include two top parts of the car one rounded like the one he got and another square that appears in some shots too

    I mean, how “accurate” you can be when dealing with 3D reality is rough, but I don’t know if this mold even hits 20% accuracy. Basically, it’s got the colors (and even some of the blocking is off) and the right “things” in the right place, and the head (and the face is off), and almost nothing else.

    Did they fix the grays on Optimus? Looks nice.

    I assume it's just different lighting.

    Evan talked about how the color is directly taken from the model itself. You don't un-accuracy the color.

    Bee is a weird one for me, but it seems clear that with the angular chest he's a pretool for Cliffjumper or Bumper and I'd be down for either

    Thanks, that looks so much better! I'll be taking my paintbrush to my Bumblebee when he arrives, definitely :)

    Two things:
    1. from this lovely animated shot I now realise I am missing a red headed G1 Sideswipe in my life.
    2. MagicSquares Legends sized Bee is never going to bee beaten by a Hasbro/Takara release in terms of G1 'toon accuracy.
    C. SS86-29 Level A G0220 Bumblebee is a MASSIVE step forward from MP-45 and looks pretty good holding one of Ironhides gun, can't wait to see him with blue windows.

    What was the explanation? I don't personally mind the black windows, but am definitely curious why they went that route... and if it means clear or blue windows would even be an option for a theoretical Cliffjumper remold.

    Edit: nevermind, I found the explanation posted by someone else earlier on that clears it all up...

    So what would the robot mode have looked like if they used blue plastic for that hinge part?
