More MPM-3 Masterpiece Movie Bumblebee comparison images

MPM3-masterpiece-movie-bumblebee-comparison-transformers

This thing is definitely growing on me, and I’m getting excited for Movie Transformers again!  Way to go Hasbro!

I am a little miffed why this is labeled MPM-3 when Hasbro never released anything under the movie masterpiece line… just a strange slight of hand there.  The MPM (masterpiece Movie) toyline only ever had two entries in its catalogue, MPM-1 Starscream, also known as Leader Starscream in the Hunt For The Decepticons Line, and MPM-2 Bumblebee, which was a repaint of Battle Ops Bumblebee.

I have no idea where these images are from, but how did they get ahold of new photos of an unreleased MP figure!?

Later figures you might expect in a line called Masterpiece Movie were under Hasbro Asia only. So whatever guys, do what you want, just give us these awesome re-imagined figures!MPM3-masterpiece-movie-bumblebee-comparison-vehicle-car

Transformers Premium Movie Toy line revealed – Bumblebee displayed in Hong Kong

masterpiece-movie-bumblebee-figure

Premium Bee

Today at the 2017 Hong Kong Toy Fair, Hasbro revealed the first of supposedly many Masterpiece Movie toys.  Of course Bumblebee is the first and it’s claimed to be an all new mold. But is that true?

Let’s take a look!

Only the best giant Bumblebees of all time.

I have to admit that I was skeptical at first. A lot of the features of this ‘new mold’ of a giant Bumblebee looked awfully familiar.  After doing some quick analysis though, I am happy to announce that this new Bee is indeed all new! Very nice! Transformers designs truly do age like a fine wine after ten years.  Will this be the penultimate Bumblebee toy?  Chances are yes, at least this is the best we are likely to get for a very long time.

The movie masterpiece line is expected to drop in July of 2017 and Bumblebee price starts at $79.99.  More to come surely!

#whoistarn – A new challenger appears!! MTMTE issue 54 SPOILERS

tran-movie-bumblebee-joke

Say it ain’t so!

More Than Meets The Eye issue 54 is out! The battle ensues!

For those of you following the Battle of the Bastards on Sunday, Wednesday delivered just as brutal of a fight but the massacre didn’t pan our exactly as expected. One little-scrutinized tidbit that this Collecticon noticed was a harkening back to dirty deeds done by Mr. Movie Bumblebee.  Could it be?  COULD IT BE THAT TARN IS MOVIE BUMBLEBEE IN DISGUISE?!?!  Transformers may never be the same again!

Transformers are on Instagram now: @transformersofficial

This image seems a bit ironic, don’t it?

I’m boarding a plane in less than 28 hours to head to NYC and enjoy yet another Hasbro Toyfair preview event. This year, unfortunately, tons of internal leaks have plagued Hasbro and quite a bit of the upcoming product is already known. Expect some surprises though.

The big reveal is expected to be a Titan Class Headmaster Fortress Maximus, similar to how Devastator was last year’s main attraction.  Hasbro even decided to kick it all off by creating a new Transformers-centric Instagram account and have promised to post photos of Fortress Maximus there sometime on Saturday.

So make sure you start following @transformersofficial on Instagram.  I know I will.

3A Transformers release schedule – Neo Masterpiece toys in the work?

3a-transformers-toys

Do we need more renditions of these guys? I hear an unanimous YES!

UPDATE: Well my calculations were incorrect – the figures are all going to be from Dark of The Moon, not G1.
I’ve been given a tidbit of information regarding the reveal of the upcoming officially licensed 3A Transformers toys.  Fans of 3A need no introduction to the company, but for those Transfans that hate to stray, they do ultra-realistic model-esque action figures that defy the rules of what an action figure actually is.  What remains to be seen is just how far 3A has taken the Transformers license.  Will they go the Hot Toys route and just have a really nice looking poseable action figure or will we get the holy grail – fully transforming accurate robot and alt-mode action figures?  I’m sure we’ll find out soon because here’s the proposed schedule of releases!

  • 2nd week of December 2014 – Bumblebee
  • 2nd week of January 2015 – Optimus Prime
  • February 2015 – Megatron, Starscream

Holy shit-cakes, I’m excited but my bank account is trembling.  Actually, there’s no word yet on if these are even going to be G1 or not.  Let’s hope so, and NOT MOVIE TOYS!!!!

MP21 Bumblebee is a Volkswagon Beetle

mp-bumblebee-spike_transformers

Looking good little fella

Nothing much to see here, I just realized I hadn’t posted about Masterpiece Bumblebee being a Volkswagon.  Amazing huh?  Makes you wonder about that Volkswagon / War rumor…

Spike is looking goo, and the exo-suit is a wonderful addition to this release, and we can expect to see a Daniel with some sort of future Goldbug release.  I wouldn’t get too warm about the idea of a Cliffjumper redeco though.  Expect Bugbite before that!

Transformers 4 videos from Chicago

Filmed these yesterday in Chicago!  More coming soon.

 

Here are the cars driving away:

Meet all the robot vehicles of Transformers 4

Transformers 4 is filming as we speak! Another two year stretch of Transformers madness is upon us, and this time, it seems some interested parties have learned a thing or two. Most of the information about the film has been coming directly from Michael Bay’s website. I applaud this effort, and the photos coming from set have kept much to be determined about the plot points.

With the reveal of the new Bumblebee car, we have apparently exhausted allt he pretty vehicle product shots for this movie. The cast looks to be our biggest yet, with over 10 confirmed new transforming vehicles. Have you met them all yet? If not, feast your eyes on the complete (as of now) robot cast of Transformers 4.

Can fan-fiction characters actaully enter the movie-verse? Apparently yes!

Supposedly this is an Autobot named Slingshot, but that information is pretty suspect

This is probably Grimlock
