    Worst backpack ever and will not even mention the reversed duck feet kible syndrome... just tire to beat that dead horse. Color and face looks ok, proportions way off and price is like tree times the original. Easy pass!! No need to update my bee with a worst version :)

    Looks really bad. I'm happy with the first one.

    Holding off final judgement until I see him in a vanilla pose. I think the backpack and feet will look a bit better then.

    You can see it in pics 3 and 4 around the lower part of his backpack. Looks like the symbol for his hood.

    Now that I've seen him and I'm comparing him to the MP-21 in my hand I'm a bit underwhelmed. He may grow on me, but my first impression is that he's not nearly the upgrade that MP-10 to MP-44 is. Especially because while MP-21 has some cartoon inaccuracies, he cleans up way better than this guy.

    They opted for MP-9 esque engravings instead of MP-21 angles for the face lines.

    Is this the neutral face or the smiling face? I can't tell :lol

    Alright, these pics make me interested. Curious on the price considering the price of Prime V.3.

    Wow look closely at the backpack! There's a little flip up panel with a yellow tire molding! :lol  Even when they have to compromise and give us a backpack, they're at least thinking about it and not doing it mindlessly.

    Well, it’s nice of them to make MP-21’s face sculpt look good by comparison, I suppose. *Sigh.* <gutted>

    Can i say?
    For now, i find both the feet and the backpack pretty ugly, and jury is still out on the head/face.
    Not impressed to say the least.
    Waiting for better pics.

    Either way, it’s freaking awful. Oh well, at least I don’t have to spend the next seven months desperate to own it.

    Edit: Oh my god, I wasn’t even looking at the back. What an utter mess. I really am gutted. I was so excited for a v2, as a great rendition of G1 cartoon Bumblebee has been my holy grail. This is horrible.

    I can’t believe that my guess at the face sculpt came true:

    Yikes- is this the first MP with TWO layers of backpacks? It may have better articulation and look more toon accurate than Mp21 from the front, but his back is and feet are complete messes. The sculpted face lines look off as well.

    I actually prefer this one’s face over the original MP’s.

    Everything else not so much. Probably the first MP I’ve not liked. I don’t mind a backpack, but at least a little effort to make it not look like a jumbled mess would be appreciated. The little fake tire stuck on top of the mound of panels is too little too late.

    Not sure how I feel about Tigatron... he will undoubtedly share much of Cheetor’s engineering. Hopefully they address the engineering flaws that make the wrist guards, hip guard, and shoulders subject to breakage...
