    I would suggest to get Bumblebee now while hes available considering the DOTM Metacolle line sold out FAST and listings were taken down quickly, unlike The Last Knight and Age of Extinction Metacolle lines lol, its unlikely Bumblebee will last IF tou can him still. The day they went up for preorder they sold right out. I know that they have plenty Marvel and Star Wars figures but like the DOTM Metacolle line the G1 line is limited supplies. We can blame that on Takaras original character choices.

    Another reason to get G1 Bumblebee, is if we as buyers buy all 3 them together, retailers will see fans want all characters at once, &think its more of a completionist line rather than a pick & chose line. Therefore making another 3 or maybe even 4 bots! And not just 1 or 2 at most, at a time, like their previous Transformers Metacolle line. Of course its up to you just spitballing :)

    I've just gone an ordered Bumblebee, as well. I meant to wait for my Optimus and Megatron to turn up, but I figured I might as well go for it.

    The Metacolle Marvel and Star Wars lines are still going pretty strong, and the Japanese tend to have a thing for G1. They can't be releasing just Megatron without any of his minions. Decades of Transformers experience tells me that the next three Metacolle 'G1' Transformers will most likely be be Starsceam (think of the endless Seeker repaints), Soundwave and........Windblade? :D

    Good choice! Mine are being shipped today, along with Legendary Prime, & MPM7. Already have the full Metacolle Transformers (movie) lines so far. I think ur right though, Takara will continue & fill out the ranks of G1 like they did Star Wars & Marvel. And since its using the Trans & formers logo stacked, be season 1 Japan 1985. Im guessing Prowl, Starscream & one of those molds repainted for wave 2. Then wave 3, vice versa to fill out rest of those molds repaints. By wave 3 well have Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Prowl, Bluestreak, Megatron, Thundercracker, Skywarp. Wave 4 will probably be Soundwave and Ratchet/Ironhide.
