Since I was a kid, I missed out much of Generation 1 Bumblebee where it was a Volkswagen beetle. After years of waiting. Finally there is hope to be able to see the Generation 1 Bumblebee toy coming back to life. What take you so long? Maybe because of Volkswagen licenses....
First it is the news of MP-21 Masterpiece Bumblebee from TakaraTomy. Here is the preview photo of how it would be.
This is schedule to be release in Nov 2014 at 6,000Yen.
In another news, seibertron.com has release that ToysRus would be having Duo Evolution pack and so far the news only have Grimlock photos. You would notice the packaging for the G1 Grimlock stated the 1984.
Just look at the list of this
TRA BUMBLEBEE A7726
TRA GRIMLOCK A7742
TRA OPTIMUS PRIME A7745
TRA STRAFE / SWOOP A7754
TRA SLAG / SLUG A7755
Now if Bumblebee would be in the same Evolution pack, it mean this Bumblebee would be the 1984 version which would be the Volkswagen Beetles!!
That make me so excited. No photo for that now but let's look at Grimlock instead. No pricing or date of these release but should be soon.
I would certainly share more news and images of G1 Bumbleebee to come. Do follow me if you want to have the latest news!
