    I like to think the toy had a more cybertronian alt at first (can't really complain, Siege did it first). But then they got the greenlight to throw out direct connectivity and went ahead with the earth truck on the toy.

    I got MPM Optimus on sale for like $60, and even then I feel like I payed too much. Can't lock for shit.

    Incidentally, when will you be uploading the Bumblebee roundtable podcast if you've recorded it?

    Hey Aaron, you mentioned something about trying to find a local seen in Indy, are you in Indy proper, or southeast of it? There is a good chunk of us playing in the Cincinnati/Dayton (OH,KY,IN tri-state) area. We even have a meet up this Saturday, but I don't know if that's a convenient location for you.

    Hey Vangelus, in regards to the Bumblebee reissue and the "new" head. From what I have gathered from asking minibot collectors and the like around fb groups etc. is the original Bumblebee mold (along with Cliffjumper's, Brawn's, and Windcharger's) became unusable after Takara used it for all their key chain variants. For his inclusion in the Transformers Collection box set, Takara went ahead and made a completely new mold for him with the new head only. Which explains why he out of the various minibot reissues has been the least prone to QC issues resulting from mold fatigue, take the overall poor quality of the Encore reissue of the 86 minibots that came with the 2nd use of the new Bee as an example.
