Some surprising Masterpiece news thanks to board member General Tekno who has found an cell phone image of a page from Figure King on Twitter. The image shows off an upcoming Masterpiece Red Bumblebee! He looks to be a straight-up repaint of MP-21 Bumblebee in homage to the G1 toy. Of course he is not to be confused with the entirely separate character, Cliffjumper. Unfortunately this means we must continue to wait for a Masterpiece Cliffjumper, but this is excellent news for Mini-Bot collectors! More info on the original repaint can be found in our Resources!
MP-21R will include 2 face plates, spare tire, laser gun, and a chromed front bumper in car mode. This release is scheduled in December for 5940 yen. We’re unsure on details concerning other accompanying accessory piece (like Spike in the original release and the jetpack in the G2 version) , but stay tuned for more news on this figure as it develops as well as other upcoming Masterpieces, and be sure to share your speculations in our Masterpiece Speculation thread!
