I musta missed that one.
Still... the lead on these two seem to be by Hasbro so far (we even have their approximate release dates), despite the products looking and sounding like TT products.

They ain't cheap. I'll wait for HLJ or Hobby Search to list.
To pre-order in a shop here Bumblebee is HK$599 and Optimus HK$799 so ehobby is a little more expensive than I expected.

I wouldnt be expecting paint, as the mp line seems to have dropped it for the most part. The preview toys were possibly painted prototypes.

Uh, I know mp shockwave lacked paint but pretty much everything else after him is drenched in the stuff, like mp36...oh boy the ONE transformer design that is not paint friendly :S

I just want to use bee as a car model with an actual chevvy like paint job :c

Images of the MP Bumblebee from Taiwan with comparisons to MP Sideswipe... I think it might be out there, or a toy dealer has an early sample.

It's the second half of June, and we had a release for MP Bumblebee of June-July, and sure enough, it's now out... first found at a ToysRUs store in Singapore.
It was S$140, which is about AU$135... or about US$100 (which is 25% more than its US retail price of US$80, so if it comes here, expect a minimum of $130).
