    Very nice!!! Although I like the bot-mode considerably, I love how they managed to neatly pack all that into the car-mode even more, nice piece!! :D

    Aren't you supposed to be able to adjust the wings for screen accuracy?

    I think the best you can do is fold the wings so they are pointing directly back. So it looks accurate from the front but goofy as hell from any other viewpoint.

    This is why takara should have waited to produce this version of bumblebee. I expect masterpiece to be the most screen accurate possible. Easy pass.

    He looks fairly good, though, there are still issues I have with it that I can't justify buying it just yet. Door wings are one thing, but those wheels jetting out past his arms look pretty bad. Even the original CGI model with the doors didn't have that; they are supposed to sit behind his arms. He's also way out of scale. This Bee should be close to MP G1 Bee's height—only a head taller. I do like his overall design though so I may consider getting him one day.

    Looks better than the movie model. What’s crazy is how close SS VW Bee looks. Take a gundam marker to SS Bee and it’ll look close to masterpiece

    Not to my knowledge. It would definitely be in the gallery if you could.

    I don't care that they're not screen accurate, I like the door wings. The absence of them in the film just looks strange to me. I'd much have preferred that they left them in. They really pull the whole design together.

    I like the side by side display of the Volkswagon car mode.

    Nice gallery! But there are still some facts that let me regret my buy of MPM-7: Beside the difficult last step of the Transformation it is of course the screen accuracy which bothers me. The wrong position of the wings and wheels in robot mode. The flat chest. The angry looking face. The cheap rust effect in car mode. The bright blue windows.
    IMO the figure with the most screen accuracy at the moment is Power Charge Bumblebee. If you look at the figure overall its the definite version at the moment. But I can‘t wait for ThreeA Bumblebee.

    Heh, I've just noticed he has a silly face on his chest....This is the best (of a very bad crop) of movie Bumblebee designs but can't stop seeing it now.
