No info given regarding scale given .

Woah! A little dumpy, but definitely the best effort so far! Transform Element are doing some really great work.
A better angle would be nice.
Looks great. The hands make me think it's actually CHUG scale??
I'm really not interested in TE-01, especially after they ripped off MP-44's head sculpt before it's even come out (somewhat hypocritical of me given I own KOs of MPM 3 & 4)
I'll be keeping an eye on this. It does look stocky but it seems to do a good job of hiding a massive amount of kibble WITHIN the body as opposed to ON the body (eg. MPM7 having the entire bonnet and roof hanging off his back), so I give it credit for that. The stocky proportions appear to be the tradeoff for tucking it all away. Hopefully we see more progress on this soon. Also hoping it will be MPM scaled.
oh no, I'm sure Takara is devastated. Also given both MP 44 and TE-01 are based on the same design, seems like a no brainer that the same head would be made.
As to this BB, I can already tell it aint worth it. While pretty dam accurate, those hands are screaming deluxe or for all we know legends scale, which is a waste of time for them given SS has one and a legends one would scale with nothing movie-wise.
I thought they will do anotjer G1 character.
What will have me coming back to check on this is if the hood is a faux part or not. TW (I think?) Looks like they're the only one that has the actual hood on its chest. Intrigued if its MP or more a deluxe figure. I'd be interested in either possibility.
MAKE THIS MP SCALE, or better. Toy world scale. I will get it!! Best damn Bumblebee Movie representation to date!! I love it!
Yep. Those hands suggest definitely not MPM scale. Even a smaller Bumblebee at that scale would feature at the least, moulded hands. These day's, peg holes are a Legends or small Deluxe feature.
All the panels and complexity make me think it's too complicated for Legends. Possibly a large Legends Plus or a small deluxish/chuggish?
TE seems to be taking the ToyWorkd approach of "throw random sh!t at the wall and see what sticks". MP Scale Prime, Legends + scale Black Arachnia and now a Legends+/Deluxe movieverse Bumblebee.
Just because Takara is just dumping random characters into their MP line, doesn't mean other companies should go all "eenie-meenie-minie-mo" on us!!!
It's alright. Too chunky for my tastes and doesn't really do a good job hiding away all the alt mode stuff.
Another movie Bumblebee in the works...
Little disappointed the TE02 wasn't an Ultra Magnus, Starscream or some other G1 figure.. But if this BB is TE02, as apposed to the black arachnia they did.. then that means this is larger then CHUG or Legends class..
Yeah kinda looks like a voyager CHUG scaled figure to me with how the hands are moulded. Question is will they expand more on BB movie character (Prime, Blitzwing, Shatter?) in the same scale? doesn't really look like he will scale with TW's take on the characters
Interesting. Lots of stuff folded up in the legs, but upper body looks good. Will wait to see how clean the alt mode looks when it's not just a render.
Glad to see another group tackling this challenging (ie. shouldn't-be-physically-possible) design! (And hilarious how all the 3rd-party attempts look MILES better than Hasbro's official "MP".)
he's so cute, a must buy for me
Hmmm... It's a bit rigid but it looks to be a deluxe figure so I'm okay with it. They got the alt mode right. It's worth watching.
Looks like a legends, to me.
Zeta not tw , I hope it’s chug , the limited looking articulation on this would make for a poor mp .
I am a boycott fanstoys, mmc, xtb, Magic Square, etc... because they ripped off the sculpt of everything from the Hasbro cartoon.
Sorry, this just seemed really ridiculous to me. They are all going for cartoon accuracy. Consider the amount of people not buying the Takara, because both the Magic Square and the Transform Element exist, holding up the head sculpt as the final straw just seems like complaining about being wet during a hurricane.
