Thanks to 3A we have an early copy of their DLX Bumblebee from the Transformers: Bumblebee movie! This is their first smaller scale figure, measuring in at 8 inches tall. It uses their new die-cast skeleton framework, has 55 points of articulation, sculpt is direct from the movie so it’s as close to screen accurate as you can get. Paint and weathering is head to toe crazy good, it makes you double take even in normal light on your shelf it’s that good. To cap things off it comes with an alternate battle mask head, an extra gun arm, 3 sets of hands, folded and unfolded door wings. Oh and the eyes light up via LED on both heads.
3A let us know that the first batch of these will be shipping out at the end of January. A second batch will go out in Q2 2019 after Chinese New Year.
If you are looking to pick him up, make sure to check our sponsors below. You won’t want to miss this guy if you dig the Movieverse and Bee in particular.
We’ve run Bumblebee through the motions, showing off his entire range of motion and display stand poses in a simple clear format, and then some fancy pants shots at the end to really show how good he looks in best case scenarios.

I’ve left some thoughts in the discussion thread, feel free to ask any questions you have about the figure inside and I’ll try to answer!
