Earlier this year, it was revealed that Battle Ops Bumblebee was primarily designed by TakaraTomy, unlike the Ultimate Bumblebee, who was designed primarily by Hasbro. With that said, it’s no suprise that TakaraTomy will be releasing Battle Ops Bumblebee in Japan. What may be surprising, is that it will be released(image from Futaba Channel) as part of the Transformers Movie Masterpiece line!
Read on for more info! As with the previously announced Movie Masterpiece Starscream, the Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee will most likely sport some deco differences in comparison to its US counterpart. Some of these differences may be seen in the photo:
- Chrome rims
- Clear(uncolored) right hand
- More paint apps
- Possibly molded in darker gray plastic
