    I'm not a huge fan of fake parts but they're definitely better than the alternative in some cases.

    For Bumblebee, though, I feel like adding a pivot to his bumper sections gets you close enough that you don't need a fake chest.

    Mostly, as long as the fake parts look good and believable (not like the boring flat chest on TFP Smokescreen) then I'm onboard with them.

    Apologies in advance for the thread bump. Just thought I would share a few highlighted bits of the transformation I have figured out (as have many others)

    The orange and purplish-red panels had confused me before, as had that lime green panel; thanks for clearing that up.

    If this thing isn't canceled, then I will have to get two copies regardless of whether it has ratchets or not!

    Just realised also from this picture the kneecaps have a nice extending feature when the legs are bent so the sculpt remains intact.

    I don't care how terrible the transformation is. The fact that it CAN transform and look that good means it is boooouuuught.

    ...

    Maybe.

    My wife said I can't buy one for myself. If I buy one for you will you buy one for me?

    When you send mine, ship it in an Ulta box. She doesn't seem to mind when those show up.

    I'll send with some eyeliner. She'll think it was all for her. Don't tell her it's the cheap shit from Sally's.

    I doubt this would be released before next summer. It was first shown off last March, with most of engineering appearing to have been done by then. This looks to have refined the engineering, and added a ton of detailing.
