Board member lushkwok shares with us a pictorial review on Dark of the Moon’s upcoming Nitro Bumblebee:

Obviously every vehicles in DOTM very several modes.
Apart from the armored mode, seems they all have a very sci-fi feeling space mode.
(Nitro mode?)
This Nitro Bumble Bee look so much like the one in “back to the future”.

    Tonight is the night of Bumble Bee~
    I made a gallery of Nitro BB and Leader BB at the same time



    Now it is the turn for Nitro BB

    Personally I like sci-fi designs, and this one is pretty cool and well designed.
    But the Mechtech…is just too much for me.



    Transform!
    I believe this bumble bee comes from the designer who design the V class OP.
    The leg’s transformation is very similar and both of them are un-ordinary design.
    But sadly this time it didn’t help much for Bumble Bee, what a waste.



    Robot mode





    It is just an average design. Not as good as before.
    The body is more simple but the back pack is over detailed.

    The posability is not very good. He doesn’t have a waist joint,
    No heel joint, and the arm design is old, I will say…nothing worth surprising.
    Besides, he has NO gimmick at all…

    The only good thing is, the MechTech can act as a shield…
    (Please notice that there are no locking feature for deluxe Mechtech, I removed the springer for photo shooting)













    NITRO>M3>M2





    Overall I think the M2 and DOTM are both cool figures
    But Nitro…I can only recommend the vehicle mode.

    I just find that the chest can be further transformed
    So I update a picture of him




    With the dorso parts flipped up
    The body detail is improved. however it becomes more bulky then before, kind of fat?
    Anyway, I still like the M2 or M3 more.

    This guy looks cool, different enough from BB Bee to be maybe worth a buy. Depends what cool stuff he does with this mode in the flick.

    Also, are we SURE that the regular DotM Bee is a retool of Battle Blades? I know they have similar transformations but that height difference is drastic. Do they actually have that many pieces in common?

    Also, I think we know this already, but this should be in Feedback. Nevertheless, great pics and review.

    The DOTM Bee is completely new, none of the parts come from the battle blade version
