    And any choice you make will look better than the hasboro/Takara version.

    Paint looks fantastic but the body has a lanky look.

    Also, BB has big feet, not tiny feet.

    Couldn't care less about light gimmicks.

    You forgot the black fingers too. Is not a bad figure, the problem is that there's better figures out there. Zeta is my last option, but I want to see the three guys on a video (TC, TC and Zeta). The scale is important to me (I need to fit it with TW BB Prime) and the price of course!.

    Looks fantastic, I love the lights on the car mode. I may be tempted to finally purchase a Bayverse figure along with TW Orion Prime (I know they're from different movies but still, looks badass!)

    Actually a deviation from the source I like as Bee's enormous shoes kinda bugged me in the film. The look of this thing has firmly cemented it in my interest zeta have done a jaw dropping nice job of him I sure hope the build quality matches its tremendously splendid aesthetic.

    Also gimme gimme a red version please zeta. I would looooove a red version.

    There's lots of other options in the pipeline if you don't like the lights! The Tfsource price is high and it's likely to be expensive given the electronics as well, so I understand where you're coming from, but like I said, there should hopefully be something for everyone for this character.

    Why the companies still adding the hammer to the figures?. If the hammer don't appears in the movie, for me is inaccurate and increases the price with a useless accessory.

    At least it's better than inventing your own accessories that don't fit. You can at least give this hammer to another bumblebee and it fits the movie aesthetic.

    I agree. On the other hand, I enjoy how the clear lenses in his headlights look. So much better than painted plastic like we so often get. But I'd still prefer clear headlights without LEDs to save on cost. Do we know yet how much this guy is gonna' be?

    Yeah. For that much, I'll have to wait to see which I want between this and TC. Not gonna buy both if either of them is that much.

    Ok I think the US sellers are just making up their prices. Showz nor Taobao have prices listed. TW prime is $170 on Showz and $260 on TCP. I bet zeta's Bee will be under $100 when it shows up on showz.

    Hope thats the case, but historically Toyworld stuff has always been cheaper from China, while all the Zeta combiners were very close in price to the prices with US online shops.

    However it's possible they were selling the combiner stuff at a lower margin to get sales / spite toyworld

    The zeta combiners were cheaper because they were developed under Toyworld, so they were cheaper because of that. However, even by third party standards $170 is insanely high for something this size, so it's just the US retailers being assholes as usual.
