Happy New Year everyone! While everyone is recuperating and celebrating the new year we are sharing out a gallery for one of the last Masterpiece releases of 2019 – MP-45 Masterpiece Bumblebee 2.0. A lot of the fandom is torn on this little guy, some digging him and some thinking he wasn’t necessary in the grand scheme of things since the original was good enough. Version 2.0 focuses on the animation look in both modes, capturing his overall proportions and look as seen in the original G1 cartoon. He comes packed with a pistol, laser effect, I Heart NY license plate, 2 additional faces and a Spike Witwicky articulated figure similar to the one that came with MP-44, but without the hard hat. He has a wide range of articulation and movement allowing for two handed gun aiming and dynamic posing.
My initial reaction was that he, and MP-44, were unnecessary. MP-44 in hand changed my mind. I handled an early copy of this guy, and wasn’t impressed due to some floppy joints and tabbing. But the retail edition featured here tightened things up and he wound up being fun to mess around with. The vehicle mode is really sharp if you are into the toon look, and that’s where he’s staying on the shelves. Bottom line, as with a lot of the recent MP releases – if you dig the toon look, he’s worth a pick up. If you prefer your MP to be toy influenced, then sticking with V1 is the way to go.
