    Pretty damn good. Would've liked to see some more actiony poses, the articulation seems to be there. Neat light up features and plenty of other cool gimmicks. Combined with a solid sculpt and good proportions I stand by my earlier statement that this is the real Ultimate Bumblebee.

    He does have a right hand. the reason we don't get one with two hands is because they're TOYS. Meant to be played with, so they're going to give him his arm cannon for more play value.

    I doubt I'll be getting this guy, but it does seem to be the best version of BB we've gotten to date. Though the new deluxe Axe BB will probably be better.

    Overall, while he does look better than I was expecting, he's still very "meh" in my books. I mean he looks like a HUGE improvement over Ultimate BB, and that's great.

    Easily one of the best Supreme Class figures we had in a while.

    :cry  WHY YOU NEED MAKE MOR BUMBLEBEE HASBRO?!?!? I'm soooo sick of Bumblebees and Movieformers, and this giant mo*fo has to be the biggest insult to injury. Could they have made it more ginormous?

    As expected, grossly out of scale.

    Very cool- very accurate... but not my thing.

    Kinda weird how they put an Autobot symbol on his hood. Not only does this kinda mess up the alt mode, he also has 2 red Autobot symbols in robot mode, pretty close to each other.

    The translucent hand is a bit unfortunate still, but I think it was the only way to still have the beam weapon's light work. I'm glad he has *something* of a second hand this time.

    Dear Hasbro,

    You can give us a giant, multi-mode Bumblebee, but yet we lack the following:
    - Movie-accurate Supreme Devastator where all the parts have robot modes.
    - Voyager Bonecrusher
    - Leader Blackout/Grindor
    - Scrapper, Overload, and Hightower

    I for one can't justify spending $60 on a Bumblebee larger than Leader Prime.

    You don't need to. You are not the target to buy this. Kids & their parents are.

    About the back kibble: I'm pretty sure the back windshield can fold in better. This figure borrows ALOT from the Human Alliance figure.

    You need to stop blaming every figure you don't want for being the reason there isn't a certain figure of a certain character at a certain scale that 99% of the time they had absolutely no intention of making.

    I'll have to admit, it looks better than I thought. I still will probably skip it.

    I agree with the general outcry that BB has gotten way more attention than he deserves, considering the other things we (the 2%) would love to see. That being said, while I'd love to say that I won't buy this, I know when I say that about a new leader mold, I end up being a lier. I know because I've seen me do it.
    Edit: yes, I know it's bigger than leader but I refuse to think of this thing as supreme. It just looks like a leader. Almost all supremes rely on size, not complexity, to carry the price point. This ain't that.

    It's like an over-sized HA Bumblebee with a few minor changes...... no thanks.

    There you go.

    Honestly, people have to understand that WE AREN'T THE ONLY ONES BUYING THESE THINGS. The consumer percentage is made up mostly of the core demographic which are KIDS. Collectors may be vocal but we only make up a small percent of who buys TFs.

    Whatever the kids like is gonna sell.
