    Thanks for the confirmation. TT never did show us Spike could sit inside, just implied by having the doors open. That’s 3 for 3 examples of the newer designed MPs having the ability to carry a passenger. The new Optimus, Hound and Bumblebee. Hope it’s a new direction of the MP line.

    Not to mention Spike is over stocked! One for MP44 Prime, Bee 2.0 and Hound!

    I could be wrong but it looks like Hound's is the same as Bee's, but also comes with an additional seated holographic (blue transparent) figure.

    Hound’s Spike seems to be larger than Prime’s and Bumblebee’s Spikes.

    Yep, looks like you're right!
    Yes! Their numbers have definitely... spiked.
    (And now I'm having one of those weird moments where you write or say or read the same word too many times and it feels as though it loses all meaning :lol )

    No problem! And thanks for the pics. They might've saved me some cash by canceling a preorder and waiting for the inevitable KO. Most likely with better QC judging by how MP-44 is.

    Is it possible to find magnets small enough for MP47 spike?

    This V2 Bee is actually about an inch taller than our first MP Bumblebee.
