Rumor: Masterpiece 45 may be a new version of Bumblebee
The folks over at Taghobby have posted some interesting news. According to Taghobby:
"TAGHOBBY get the updated news!! TAKARATOMY will release the TRANSFORMERS Master Piece Series MP45 Blublebee Ver.2.0 in Sep 2019. It include figure, weapon and effect part. We are very surprise for the price of ver.2.0 is 13,000Yen(Not included tax)."
This version will reportedly be more accurate to his cartoon appearance which includes a less "life like" Volkswagon Beetle mode and instead look more like the "Penny Racer" based G1 vehicle mode. Like other recent Masterpiece releases, this set will include more than just a figure and weapon. Supposedly the box contents will include:
1 x Bumble Ver 2.0 Body
1 x Spike Figure
1 x Number Plate
1 x Face A
1 x Face B
1 x Effect Parts
1 x Seal
1 x Card
1 x Instruction Manual
Of course, take this with a grain of salt for now since there has been no official word on this figure just yet.
