    He's pretty big. I want him, and all the other movie guys.

    Wow, never thought i'd like these since it seemed so kiddyish, but that actually looks really cool. That pose he has him in in the beginning is sweet. Might have to keep an eye out for him.

    I wasn't expecting much from this, but that looks pretty neat. I'm pleasantly surprised.

    Have to disagree with that one. I prefer my bee and ratchet to this one.

    I like that they made them larger than the animated versions. I'll pick one up sometime.

    Much larger, and better, than I was expecting him to be. Might actually get him, and possibly some of the others. Should be interesting to see who else gets this treatment. Lockdown would be cool, but not all that likely, imho.

    I've seen a couple of this guy's other reviews. Honestly, his constant use of the "look-how-far-I-can-spread-my-legs" pose is quite annoying, and complicates the size-comparisons he does to the point where it's pretty much pointless.

    These look better than the Fast Action Battlers. I think I might get them.

    The Deluxe scale is actually a turn off for me. I was hoping for a scout sized movie Bee.

    I was actually going to say, this is more like a FAB, but with the Activator gimmick.
    Yeah...I donno. If it was smaller then I'd probably get it. But at a Deluxe scale, I'll just buy a Deluxe.

    Even more excited for Megs now, that auto transform was just cool to look at.

    I like the cutesy look too this Bumblebee. I like fierce and mean looking robots as much as the next guy, but small, cute robots are a welcome addition to a collection. I would've preferred it if the toy was the same size as a Scout, but oh well. The only other Activator I have is Animated Bumblebee since he came with Shockwave, but I love that figure.

    That's exactly why I skipped buying these last Saturday when they were released here in Manila. I'm a big fan of the TFA Activators but I couldn't get over how big these new Activators are and how they're at the same price point as our deluxe class Transformers. Among the torrent of new releases and more coming, these Activators just dropped to low priority for me.

    To be honest, he looks like a kid wearing the bumblebee helmet that was released with RotF. Kind of odd looking without many paint apps, but I bet he'd look decent if with some. Kind of a neat little toy.

    Thanks for the review!

    Activators Belldandy

    Some of us in the Autobot Alliance event where the Activators Bumblebee was released thought it reminded us of someone. Here she is.

    I really like it! Good review, I'm all for complex Transformations but the 'at the touch of a button' gimmick is awesome when they the robot modes are so articulated, now if they could do it on a Transformer with more detail, that could be very effective!

    I would have prefered TFA Activators size and price.
    Easy pass on these.
