Unavoidable back-wings are frustrating, especially since they seem to be done better than any set of Bee back-wings before. I also wonder if he's actually going to use either that gun or that sword in the movie at all.
However! For what it is, which is the questionable decision to do an MPM knowing it's based on a design that's going to change, I think it looks really nice. I especially like the way his calves pile up. He has a fairly charismatic face, too. Shame about the fake hood-chest.

VW Bee is tiny. We've seen that promo render of him sitting on a couch in a house. He fits comfortably into the corner of Charlie's garage. This toy isn't small because it's a small toy, it's small because it's a toy of a small guy.
If your periods of ellipsis indicated comedy then please ignore the above.

I think this Bee may actually be too big compared to MPM Camaro Bee, allowing for the usual changes in size in different shots that all Transformers media do.
A human (and I know they're not all the same size, but Steinfeld is 5'8" and that's a pretty "standard" human height, and only an inch shorter than Shia LaBeouf's official height) appears to generally come up to somewhere around Camaro Bee's knees or a little lower:
That's pretty consistent with his official height (usually) of 16'-18'. Meanwhile, Charlie comes all the way up to VW Bee's mid-thigh:
He appears to be about 12' in Bee Movie, and the MPM's thigh should fall around the Camaro's knee - in other words, this MPM is probably about a head too big.
(I apologize for the quality of, like, every image in this post.)
