    Looks nice in relation to the character model, the problem for me is that I do not like the character model.... lol....

    That's what you call a Masterpiece. It used to mean something.

    if he is in the movie 10 feet tall, then the perfect scale with mpm bee, barri, and some other 3p figures should be 1/28, so that means he should be around 11cm tall in my opinion

    Oh, it still does... just nothing positive.

    You know, if this pans out to be anywhere close to what's shown, I may buy it solely to rename it

    Give me some stickers for the side, Reprolabels.

    I've only just seen the colour renders. Man, it's impressive. I really love MPM7 but the backpack is just too frustrating given how the rest of the figure is so great. The eyes seem off on this one but it might be because of the light-up effects they added for the render. MPM7's head is fantastic so a 1:1 copy is welcome.

    20190607_001932.jpg Seeing as how quickly they were able to change the figure from the first renders to the colored version, I would hope they would be able to fix some things. Namely the forearms, they just aren't muscular enough.

    The thighs should also be slightly wider and rounder, and the headlights should angle in about 20 degrees. He looks "fine" as is, but the ThreeA figure right there shows it could be a bit more accurate. I don't mind the kibble on the side of the legs, some of the proportions are just slightly off.

    Posted this in the TE thread, thought I might as well post it here.

    I think zeta is winning the battle of the transforming movie bees. 3A though is mighty tempting.

    I think that 3rd BB is winning it tbh
    While an unknown company, they have gotten the most right. Zeta just hasn't gotten the smooth curvature and almost muscle-like features on his arms or calves.

    It'll be interesting to see how they pull off those legs. I really can't tell where all the car went.

    Didn’t know TE was making one. Neat.
    Yeah this guy is still looking strong. I’m still convinced it’s Unique Toys.
    Good find. I’ve always thought the key to a good BB Bee is back compression.

    It's most likely a product of their black magic!

    It seems a bit too smooth for them, as even tho they look really nice, their Prime and lockdown still have that blocky look to them.
    what if its Toyworld (their movie stuff makes it possible).... or if not, imagine what Toyworld could do.... Those guys are like...darker black magic?
