And to sweeten the pot, Takara has added an ExoSuit to accompany him! But, it appears, thus far, to be empty. Who will go inside, Spike or Daniel?
Well, considering that Spike was Bumblebee's constant companion in both Seasons 1 & 2 as well at Transformers: The Movie, I think that Spike will be a pretty safe bet.
I also really like the addition of the two face plates that allow you to have a regular face, as well as a smiling version. But there will also be an additional G1 face plate, but will be a Amazon Japan exclusive. Sometimes certain US stores do get these Amazon Japan exclusive versions in stock, so do some hunting and you can probably pre-order it somewhere.
The great news here is that Bumblebee is looking great, the bad is that he's been pushed back to a November release. With Wheeljack getting pushed back to August and BB now hitting in November, I'm guessing that we won't see Ultra Magnus in 2014 at all. (He originally had an August release date.)
