With the approach of the new Bumblebee movie (December 21), a toy version of the Bumblebee is inevitable. This is the Transformers, after all. And the latest may be the best one yet.

A few videos (very deliberate) videos of the toy being transformed have emerged today and they show a figure that’s faithful to both the Beetle and Bumblebee. According to PrimeVsPrime, the Masterpiece version is the best model in Hasbro’s line. Which was no easy feat.

Speaking to Gamespot, Hasbro’s Senior Design Manager, John Warden , said that the shape of the Beetle, its soft lines and curves, were essential to the design, and one of the designers’ biggest head aches.

"When we worked with [Bumblebee director Travis Knight] on this, Travis really had a vision,” says Warden. “So, when we look at the toys, we wanted to make sure that the iconic parts of the [Volkswagen Beetle].”

According to Warden, faithfulness was a big deal, because so many people are so familiar with the Beetle.

“It's a licensed car, so you have to make sure the VW is spot-on, but all those pieces find their way into the parts of his body,” he explains. “I think it brought a lot of challenges when we think about the smooth rounded legs of Bee. He's got a lot of bulk and mass, even though he's sort of a small bot... [The Studio Series toy] was a trick because there's so many bulbous forms on his legs that there's a couple of tricky transformations built into it."

In the Masterpiece series toy, that makes the transformation particularly difficult.

If you’re interested in getting one of your own, the Transformers Masterpiece Movie Series - MPM-7 Bumblebee is selling for $90 and will be available later this month.
