Default mp21 bumblebee reissue!?

Looks like the little bee is coming back, its odd though, hlj has him up for pre-order for THIS september while amiami has him for a more realistic February next year

I wonder who else they'd reissue, hoping for a mp soundblaster!

He was an online exclusive iirc and haven't seen any of those been reissued apart from thundercracker and skywarp and only because it was hasbro asia who initiated them first then takara japan.

But time shall tell

Without trying to derail the thread, what is it about the current one that you don't think is close enough to the cartoon?

IMO the MP Bee is more orange-yellow, whereas the cartoon (even taking into account the occasional errors) is a brighter, canary yellow. Even if TT released a + version I couldn't be arsed buying him again.

The cartoon alt mode is much closer to the toy's Penny Racer design than a real world Volkswagen.

correct, the current one is actually wrong. I seen it more in lemon yellow than orange. This is one, that I would sell off my current one and take the screen accurate one. I am surprised KO don't have the brains to do it.

for argument sake, google it yourselves bumblebee g1 and see how many images show the mp colour and how many show is very different.
