We're a little closer to finally getting out first look at Takara/Tomy's Transformers Masterpiece Bumblebee.
In this pic, you can get a little idea of his design and proportions, and the fact that he will come with a gun. Previously, Volkswagen had been against their vehicles ever being associated with and kind of war or weapons (for reasons going all the way back to the Nazi party-- look it up!), but somehow Takara/Tomy was able convince the car manufacturing company to relent and allow Masterpiece Bumblebee to be an official Volkswagen.
Look for the unpainted prototypes of Bumblebee to pop up within the next few weeks.
I tried to do a little Photoshop magic to get a better look at him...
