    Today I discovered it is incredibly difficult to find an MP-45 Bumblebee Ver 2.0 for sale that isn’t knock off.

    I’ve heard some dicey things about him in the past, but I don’t care. I’m obsessed with the look of the figures that have a super cartoon aesthetic. I have Starscream and I love him. Just got to get ahold of Optimus and Bee… if I can find non-KO versions, that is.

    You can find him but his aftermarket up-charge is pretty heavy. I want one myself but I'm holding out for a better deal. If you really want TFLand has one sealed for $255 + shipping: Transformers® Masterpiece (Japan) Bumblebee Version 2.0 Sealed

    They pop-up every now and then. Some of the KOs are actually official V2 Bee's that had defects. It really is hard to tell the KO from the official because the official's QC was spotty.

    Scarcity. Nothing more.

    same reason mp-44 is approaching $1000 and mp-29+ is well over $1000 in some cases…

    Oh agreed. I regret selling my mp-44 and canceling my mp-29+ preorder every day. That said, been through a lot since then, and am definitely in a better headspace and financial place to be collecting. So yah know, you win some you lose some I guess.

    MP-1’s size makes him really fun to put with other lines:
