That deluxe one that's supposed to come out, have there been any pics from ToyFair or whatever?
Bumblebee (Battle Blade) - ROTF Main Line - Transformers Resources
Yes, I think so, although it took me a while to find them. I think there's both photos snapped on Toyfair, as well as official photos released by Hasbro.
Dig through the news archive on TFW and you will surely find them.
This will be my first and only Movie Bumblebee I'll be getting.
Wow, I can't believe I didn't think to check the resources, thanks much!
such an ugly figure.....and i usually like movie figures...but man is that ugly
I think it's just mis-transformed.
They seemed to have retooled a lot, adding moving armour on the thighs, moving battle mask, heel spurs and retractable cannon.
and axe. can't forget the axe.
I'm pretty sure it's not a remold. The only parts that even look the same as the original new Camaro BB are the lower legs, but even them I'm not totally sure about.
I may get it just for the retactable mask thing... i didn't know it had that. too bad they got rid of the cannon's he'd be as armed as brawn and ironhide
The chest looks different - it seems to have the same transformation as the HA and Battle Ops BBs, but hasn't been transformed in the official pic.
Yay another bumblebee...
Do we actually want let alone need another one?
They've pretty much decided there's never too much Bee.
It looks neat and I love Bee, but I have all of my loose TFs on my IKEA Expedit cube shelves, and have a different vs. scene going on in each one, and Bee is in like, 90% of them. I'm running out of room for Bee.
I'll wait until I see some properly transformed pictures to decide, but (even mistransformed) it looks like they've taken every problem with HA BB and transposed it down onto deluxe BB. It looks like they've basically just wrecked what was a nearly perfect rendition of the movie version.
What they really needed to do was go back and redo the HA version (or the new big one) to be more like the old deluxe was.
Also, while I would LOVE one with a working battle mask, that's only true if it actually looks good. The battle mask on HA looks horrendous. If they can't execute it properly, I'd rather they just do interchangeable heads. This looks an awful lot like the HA mask.
The mask on the new big one is actually a big step in the right direction, and one of the main reasons I might get it (although I'm far from certain).
I'm definitely getting this one.
I actually really like that he has a right hand, and a flip out arm cannon. that's something that I've been wanting in a movie Bee figure for awhile now. And the fact that it's a Deluxe just makes it better.
Very much looking forward to this figure.
Maybe I'll get this one, once I get rid of my other two. It looks pretty nice. But who would want a Bumblebee, since everyone by now has at least one or more of the darned mold.
I'm gonna be getting it just to see whats different. I recall during the toyfair presentation video-they said this is a completely new mold.
