    This makes me regret not getting Bee so much! I need to stay strong though... i’m Not sure why, but Bee doesn’t sell as well in Japan, so I might find it for cheap in second hand stores. (I got MP-21 for 2800 yen 2 years ago). I love the pictures!

    What are fellow MP-44 owners impressions of MP-45 Bumblebee 2.0 ?








    Does it make you more worried or more excited for MP-47 Hound?

    Excited. Very excited. Bumblebee’s engineering flaws are mostly due to size. Everything I’ve seen of Hound just impresses me even more. And I really like Bumblebee. I don’t have any major QC issues (which I suppose makes me very fortunate; neither my 44 nor my 45 have any major issues) and his design is very clever. I don’t care much for the color yellow or Bumblebee as a character, but I like him about as much as is possible for someone with those two stipulations.

    There's two tiny slivers of plastic on the inside edges of his knees that fold out to properly shape his knee area.

    I think MP45 rocks, but I definitely hope MP47s QC and tolerances are closer to MP44. As others have mentioned some of MP45s QC problems stem from being such a complex figure in such a small size. Comparing the most recent carbot of comparable size and complexity: Sunstreaker, then I think Hound will be fine.

    I’m very excited for Hound. I think Bumblebee has a few design choices I don’t love. But Hound looks so clean in every picture I’ve seen. Before seeing him in person, the only gripe I can see having is with his floating head. But most pics look pretty good, so I’m not worried

    I'm not super impressed with Bumblebee...he looks good from the front, but I think he has too many compromises...gappy backpack and horrible feet. He's not a bad figure, but i don't get a definitive vibe from him. Hound looks more promising, though.
