The deformed alt mode does not bother me! It's honestly a selling point. The Micro Change toy that would become Bumblebee was based on a Choro-Q car, and the animation model retained the deformed proportions. To me, MP-21 looks weirdly elongated. I'll grant you that, (and that he should have a yellow/gold crotch with a V-shape, and black bumpers) if you're going for total G1-accuracy for an MP shelf (I'm not). But, one might say the same thing about MP-21, who's head has too soft a face and the wrong angles on his "helmet". Between the two, I do prefer Bii's head, but YMMV. I think the biggest problem with Bii (aside from the back wanting to pop off the balljoint) was that the non-metallic gold original version had those awful baby-blue painted windows. Repainting them black can go a long way toward fixing that, though.
