    Oh man, I'm hoping he says it is a rerelease. I had that exact one and used it like crazy back in High Sch.... I mean when I was younger.

    All of these photos really makes me want to get a copy one of these days. Thanks for all the fun photos people!

    So finally found time to transform him. Does anyone else have extremely loose hips and really tight shoulders? Is there a remedy? Thanks

    Well, I’m a very lucky guy! I’ve managed to score an MP-45 Bumblebee 2.0 from eBay for only $95 via Best Offer! Woot-woot!

    Happy New Year TFW!

    I didn’t forget the pics but I’ve been busy. Sorry I’m not using a scanner, just my phone so I did the best I could.

    Hopefully someone like @lord ginrai can help translate some of this text.

    Cheers!

    The picture showing MP 44 paint chipping gives me the shivers. 

    Bee looks good other than his snowboot feet.. without that perfection he isnt worth the money to me unfortunately.

    Yep, happened during the photo shoot for him on first pass. Pretty much front and center forever now. Let it be a PSA to fans and Takara then :) .

    Great shots of a poor bot - the little squashed bug mode looks very cute though.

    Great pics Tony! I think he looks great besides the feet. I am going to get this one, because of the toon look and brighter yellow, but my original MP is going to my toy homage masterpiece shelf with his battle mask on.

    Nice pics, of a poorly designed/executed toy. 3P companies have shown that is possible to make amazingly accurate figures, in both modes, and still at a cheaper/more competitive price than this version of MP Bumblebee.

    I'd like to see a 3P take on Bumblebee v2, same design parameters, that solves the "problems" with this figure and still retains all of the accuracy and poseability at this same scale and a lower price point. Seriously, if that were to happen it would be my first 3P figure purchase.

    Also, for as much as Jobby can be entertaining, he didn't bother to transform the back properly before going into extreme rant mode. I like his material much better before he ramped up the manic behavior.

    That's some damn nice photography, but there's only so much you can do and as far as I'm concerned. this figure is just as hideous as when it was originally revealed.

    Man the old MP Bumblebee looks so much better and he isn't making creepy kissy faces at me.

    … and inviting all the usual negative posts that come with that, unfortunately.
