First Look: Masterpiece MP-21 Bumblebee!

03.07.2014 – Last year the next Autobot that was revealed to be Masterpiece 21 is Bumblebee, and when you talk about him the VW Beetle is his alternate mode. Now everyone knows that Volkswagen won’t let anyone use their precious VW Bug license to make it into war toys.

For that reason Bumblebee has to take another form like a Chevrolet Camaro in the live action films or an unnamed fictional hatchback for the Classics series. To think what make Bumblebee as an enduring and iconic character is his Volkswagen Beetle mode…

Takara Tomy was only allowed to get another licensed from them, which is Sideswipe’s alternate mode and that is the Lamborghini New Countach LPS 500 S. But this could be something every Transformers fan in the world would be happy about. TF Source has got a hold of prototype images of Bumblebee on their Facebook page.

Bumblebee returns to his original mode and that is the Volkswagen Beetle and he’s not being released alone as Spike Witwicky will be accompany him wearing his transforming Exosuit from the 1986 Transformers animated movie!

Based on the first look of Bumblebee, the Volkswagen logo is seen one of the photos. It appears like the German car manufacturer has a soft spot for Bumblebee after all these years and since Transformers is celebrating 30 years why not?

Masterpiece-21 Bumblebee is scheduled to be released in November 2014 for a price of $79.95 US Dollars and is accepting pre-orders.
