I mean it's not unusual for Starz content to be on Netflix...it just gets a bit more of a notice ahead of time :p

@  Shrug : (13 December 2017 - 10:32 PM)

@Steevy It popped up out of nowhere. No one knew it was coming until it was just suddenly there. It was kind of surprising for everyone.

i don't remember that League. was Charizard there?

WHY WAS I NOT NOTIFIED ASH VS EVIL DEAD WAS ON NETFLIX?!

@  Shrug : (13 December 2017 - 07:37 PM)

Yeah,Mrs Shrug actually had to return something already. She managed to buy me the thing I bought the day before the embargo went in effect and noticed in on my shelf a week later.

@  MidnightFox : (13 December 2017 - 05:40 PM)

She makes me buy my own present and then wraps it because she doesn't want to attempt to figure out what I own already. :D

@  Shrug : (13 December 2017 - 05:31 PM)

But she did grant an exception for half off and free shipping on that RID Bee and Grimlock set

@  Shrug : (13 December 2017 - 05:31 PM)

My marriage only has a no-toys rule during December, so I dont run the risk of doubling a Christmas present

@  Echowarrior : (12 December 2017 - 10:44 PM)

For pun value, the ideal plush animal for Obama would be a llama. It rhymes.

But a stuffed monkey in a little suit would be adorablooohhh I get it now.

@  Paladin : (12 December 2017 - 11:21 AM)

knowing the people behind it, the Obama stuffed animal would probably be a monkey.

@  Pennpenn : (12 December 2017 - 06:43 AM)

The only thing that would make that even dumber would be if there had been some "Obama bear" made at some point and Trump had made a tweet scorning it.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2017 - 12:14 AM)

Just look up the horror of "Trumpy Bear"

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2017 - 12:14 AM)

$40 for a teddy bear with Trump's "trademark hair". Can't stop milking his image even in office...

@  Shrug : (08 December 2017 - 10:38 PM)

But why male models?

@  BlackMax : (08 December 2017 - 06:30 PM)

Because they're too big for carrier pidgeons...?

One thing I note with Bumblebee is that I'm pretty certain at this point that he's slightly mistransformed.  Pretty sure the rear wheels flip in to fill his ankle area, which will be great to finally have that detail properly replicated in plastic for once (and few Bumblebees have the wheels pinned to his ankles, but it's not quite the same as having them embedded in his ankles).  You can see that there's a suspiciously large gap in his ankles, with the support struts being conspicuously offset.

 

Also, his chest should close up tighter than that in robot mode.  You can see that the left headlight panel isn't collapsed as far as the right side one, so his chest should look narrower and a tad more accurate.

 

Yay, finally a transforming Bumblebee that has his two little "sub-wings".

That's basically a straight repaint of the AOE leader, right?

^ Dang what's the excuse for that? Though it is pretty as hell.

 

And making a second Masterpiece design (third large design) for a version of Bumblebee that's not even in the films anymore is kind of weirdly lateral?

Oh, okay.  So this is something completely different than I own already (in regards to Masterpiece Movie Bumblebee).

 

I might be interested if it's a better attempt at the iconic design then they created before.

Yeah, you can see it properly transformed in these stock photos:

Definitely the best transforming representation of the design to date.

I didn't bite on that AoE leader before, and while I am disappointed that the new toolings were ignored, that DOES look awesome.

Glad the new Optimus is just a repaint so I can just buy the voyager that does look great and be on my way.

 

That Bumblebee is GORGEOUS. Hope one day I have enough money to get one.

Why.....why wouldn't they use the movie-accurate Armored Knight tooling? Is it not available? Is there some kind of rights issue? Like, that makes no sense. It exists, and it's more screen-accurate, and I doubt the tooling itself is somehow, like premium without the paint job. And this is possibly an asia exclusive anyway if it is! GAH.

 

That MP Bumblebee though. How big is it? I think I'm over movie stuff, but it DOES look nice.

Maybe there's more parts?  Or it's tied up with something else possibly?

 

Or more likely they figure this is an easy cash grab and the other tooling is slightly more expensive to produce.

Not having owned it, the only difference in terms of actual parts count spotted from all the detailed photos was a removable mouthplate. Aside from that, it was just, like, changes to the surface details.

 

I mean, I feel like you're right, it's just a bleh situation because that's a great deco gone to waste.

I mean, I guess I'll be That Guy, but "incredibly dark and muddy" isn't really a deco that blows me away.

 

Bumblebee looks fantastic; I'm not sure I need him in a post-3A world, with the number of other transforming Bees I have, but I am thrilled to see (like archon said) one that finally has all four wings.

Interesting that 'Bee continues the old Movie Masterpiece numbering, I guess it's technically a Takara product which Hasbro Asia is importing as per usual.

It looks exceedingly dull to me, especially the "muddy" bit, so you aren't exactly alone on that one.  The truck mode looks a test shot.  I mean that in a bad way, not a literal one.

The retool added wrists.

The light gray upper arms on that Prime are a bit of a poor match with the rest of him.
