    For the size/scale debate. Using some simple geometry and mediocre editing, the top of this guy's head should be just below the top of that mirage's shoulder. Now do we know the height of that mirage?

    I would be much more likely to buy this one! Transcraft may have my money but it looks like almost 3A scale, so if they're in those scales I would probably replace my official ss figure with this one and replace my 3A deluxe figure with transcraft.
    I think it's smart actually. They must know that theirs was just blown away by the much more accurate other ones (especially transcraft) so they decided to go for the "ours may not be the best but it's still cute and fun!" route. I think it's charming, or at least it's a good attempt at being charming.
    Very clever how you did that!

    TE is very nice, a little bit chunky but nice. ZT has lights, but... is too flat and thin, and less accurate of the three of them. Depending the size I will buy ZT or TC. But I need more pictures, official sizes, videos! XD.

    Something makes me think that they will cancel the production of this figure, is totally out of the battle.

    Look the poor attention is having this figure, no-one is talking about this one. No-one seems to like it with the other brands outthere. Also is taking too much to show news of the figure and the attention disappear.

    I mean it looks better than the zeta one and is a completely different scale. In fact, I think it’s the smallest one and might end up the cheapest, so I’d wager it’s going to get a good reception once it’s actually out.

    Yeah, while it's probably the least accurate in the details, it looks simple enough that I think this might be the most fun toy of the bunch. It has my attention for that reason.

    Hah, definitely an MPM scale. Thanks for this although I'd like to see more comparisons especially with Zeta.

    Wow nice! He's compact. The proportion is better than Zeta imo, but articulation is far behind. Can you summarize if these reviewers think TC02 is good or not?
    Although TC is the untimate option at the moment, I would still like to pick 1 of this if the price is reasonable.
    And is there any news about when it will be release and price? Thanks!

    He looks short and chubby, a little bit childish like in the movie and scales beautifully with the MPMs. I couldn´t see the entire video yet so I couldn´t see the transformation process, I hope is not so difficult!
    I like that they dind´t give us thousands of photos, they worked silently and gave us the product.
    I hope they can produce it and sell it quickly.
    Still want to see the Transcraft version, but this one is the best for me at the moment.

    Size looks good. Do we know how big the Transcraft Bee will be? I love their Mohawk but scale between Bug Bee and Mpm Ber is more important for me.

    Same here. Zeta is a bit big to my liking, and finnicky transformation. Not too sure about the quality, and alt mode paintjob is sloppy with all the panels not matching up. Bit expensive too and I don't care for the lighting features.

    Still wanna see the TC.

    Now we're talking. Still no comparison with Zeta (but I can't really blame you for not willing to go through the transformation process of Pioneer :lol ) but I happened to have both TE-01 and ZV-01 so you can easily imagine the size difference.

    As for the vehicles, my biggest concern with Zeta is that the car mode is ridiculously big. I think I like TE proportions better (minus the visible kibble underneath) but the lack of the silver stripe on the bonnet bothers me. It looks more "toyish" in comparison. TE could try fixing it in the final release but this is a nitpick really
