We’re sharing a quick gallery tonight of a recent release – Transformers Movie The Best Bumblebee. Movie The Best is Takara’s Transformers Movie pre-game show, higher end re-do’s of previous molds celebrating all the movies so far. I thought the Bee looked pretty sharp in promotional pictures and while I know everyone dreads him on the retail shelves, I do like me some Bumblebees. He’s using a deluxe Dark of the Moon mold with more traditional stripe work. Read on to check out some quick thoughts and some highlight pics. You can see the full gallery over in our gallery system – Reflector @ TFW2005.
He’s in stock now and shipping at site sponsor TFSource!
It’s another Bumblebee! It’s clean, mold is sharp. Looks way better than the original with the odd outer stripes. However, it’s not movie accurate per say. There is a lot of yellow plastic going on, not much to break it up. Face paint has a metallic sheen which is sharp. Same paint on the wheels and gun. Inner body is a dark gray plastic. One thing that could have used improvement here is on the body, a light silver wash would have done wonders and truly made it feel like a special release. Overall it’s a sharp piece but I wouldn’t say it’s a must grab for the casual collector. Those without the mold, or who grab all things Bee – worth a pick up.
