    Battlefield Bumblbee is very similar to the original Activators Bumblebee. While much of the black parts of the original have been replaced with grey/silver Bumblebee is still primarily yellow. The shade of yellow seems to be identical to the original release.

    While this is a great mold the new figure is probably too similar to the original. I'd certainly suggest getting Cliffjumper over this version of Bumblebee. However, if you don't have any version of this mold yet or just like it then this will be a welcome addition to your collection.

    Yeah, it's the best looking version of the mold, let alone the best of the 3 BB versions. Very nice.

    picked him up yesterday along with Armor up Optimus. Like both of them. Bumblebee looks like his Classics colors and I like the silver stripes and light blue. A solid Activator. Good luck finding a Cliffjumper though.

    They finally figured out how to compensate for the shoulder pieces being a different mold color than the car body. There's matching paint going around the entire bottom edge of the car, and it looks great. Some of you may recall that I had to swap the shoulders between original and patrol Activators Bumblebee in order to make them both look decent.

    Also a nice touch that the police light is blue instead of the red it always was before.

    I have this sick idea in my head of buying him and using him as Animated Hubcap... what do you guys think?
