    If it has the same build quality and price point (or lower) as TE-01 i will bite. Although I'm hoping it has better improvement on articulation compared to their OP. Bet this will look good with Unique Toys challenger even if the scale is off.

    Just based on what can be seen in picture , the articulation for knees and biceps seems limited by design and kibble there . Though bonus on the butterfly shoulder and the cuteness overall

    Yeah it’s likely this is Studio Series scaled.

    He does seem less rigid compared to TE-01 despite having more kibble around the joints. Looks promising to me so far.

    If its SS scaled it might look decent. I don't intend to get the TW BB Prime just yet, since hes a pretty minor character in the movie and the design might not even be used again in the sequel so I'm hoping to pair it with Challenger which if im not mistaken is 9 inch / MP scaled?

    The speculation on scale before was based on this appearing to have 5mm pegs on the hands but this new picture clearly shows the hands are articulated. Whatever the eventual scale this looks to be a cool figure.

    Well I guess it’s fine honestly. Since most movie Bee toys can’t grab things anyway.

    It looks so good. Almost non-transformable good. I wonder how the alt mode looks. Somehow I do not believe there is any Bumblebee figure out there that transforms in an accurate VW Beetle.

    I found that alt mode to look too stretched out in the lenght. It could be me though, but it doesn't look like pictures of the real thing I've seen.

    Looks rad. I'm excited regardless of scale.

    VW Beetle had different size variations during it production run. The MP Bee is most likely based on the 70's Super Beetle. Which was lengthened.
