    Looks like he scales well with Classics. I may be tempted.

    Bitch & moan......If you don't like it, by all means, don't get it. It's possible this was in the works long before MP Bumblebee was announced, given that samples have been sent out (in package & all). If you prefer legit Takara/Tomy releases, cool. Some may prefer this now. Personally, I like the overall look & the fact that it has the animation styled alt mode (similar to the G1 toy's squashed look). I think I'll wait to see what TT has to show. I'm good with my Classics Bee for now though. Still curious on a price for this.

    It's pretty easy to guess why....I posted further up. If VW have been persuaded to license the beetle I'm betting they won't want it chibi. This fills that void.

    You do know that there are a ton of Classics on the way, and a couple MPs right? Plus the supposed MP cassettes were just Classic size. So I don't even count them as MP.

    Did you see the comparison pics? The same size as Classics BB. And it looks to be to complement Orion.

    I'm definitely more interested in seeing what Takara does, but I'm really impressed with the relative clean silhouette they have achieved.

    It's actually a fun piece. I'm kinda diggin' the cartoony, toyish quality to the car mode.

    Until MP Bumblebee is released, this is the best Bumblebee that has been created in toy form. Not perfect, but the best so far.

    You do know I'm not being serious....don't you? It makes me chuckle how deadly serious you are and I'm just pulling your leg.

    Awesome pic!

    This would explain a lot considering how slowly they move with other product how long ago did we see Orion. After going through the other thread about all the stuff that goes on behind the scenes. Seems they kept it und wraps and maybe it was too far along when Takara announced theirs.

    If people are right about Takara following the scale chart and making MP Bumblebee ridiculously small, like three inches tall, then maybe this guy isn't so bad.

    I actually think he looks pretty good. I'm not really in the market for a classics Bumblebee, but let's see what the price is and talk again.

    Hmm. Not bad at all. Makes me more excited for a MP Bumblebee though.

    If he had a better head and all black legs and a clear chest insert they'd make a passable toy I'd say. as he stands he's just OK - Interesting though If I see it cheap enough I'd buy it for sure. so if it's like iGear like cheap then that's a buy I'd say.

    Anyone else think this might exist in part because of their inevitable Goldbug?

    After all, change the head/paint and you're kinda done.
