    What was your first Bumblebee toy (any), what was your first movie or newer Bee, and what of the character do you have in general? I'm sorry if this topic has already been done to death or in otherwise similar fashion, but I figured the subject could use a smudge of positivity for a change.


    Also, to the people without a movie or newer Bumblebee & who're otherwise contributing to the reported infestations, I cast a plague of sunlight & shelfdust on your collection, and one that only buying a Bee can cure. :D

    My first was Classics Bumblebee with the remolded/retooled/whatever you want to call it roof/chest that had the wider bit at the top so the rub symbol could actually fit. My next Bumblebee was the first release of the Concept Camaro from the 2007 movie. I've since acquired Animated, WFC, and Prime FE Bumblebee. Least favorite is WFC, though I do like the vehicle mode and its obvious Tron influences.

    Classics Bumblebee was my first, but it wasn't until I got old Camaro Bumblebee that I got into the character.

    Animated Deluxe Bumblebee is probably my all-time favourite.

    Don't have that one anymore.

    My first was Pretenders Classic Bumblebee. Which I gave to a good friend a few weeks ago. That Bee's been with me for 23 years, and I'm glad he's got a new home where kids can play with him again. Second was G2 Bee, which died after about 3 years. Tires cracked, legs broke... same thing happened with my Keychain Bee from 2003-ish.

    I had both Bees from TF2007, which were given away (along with about 67% of my collection) 2 Christmases ago to children from impoverished families. The only Bee I have left is Classics Bee from 2006. Classics is all that I collect now, and until they make a more definite Bumblebee, he will be the only one.

    A G1 Bumblebee was my first, then both United releases and now finally a First Edition Prime.

    Dunno if I should get the Alternity, I already have a Cliffjumper.

    My first Bumblebee toy actually was my first Movieverse Bumblebee, the 76 Camero. And since then it has grown to this:

    This isn't all of them either, but I believe I have every figure that was released under the Movie banner with the exception of only a couple.

    My first was the '76 Camaro Bumblebee.

    It was also my first Movie Transformer.

    He got me hooked.

    I think it was Classics Bumblebee. I bought United shiny Bumblebee because my Classics one is missing a piece.

    There are lots of TFA and Movie Bumblebees in my house, but I blame my son who occasionally aspires to be a Bumblebee collector.

    '07 stealth Bumblebee, My friend (who also collects TFs) and I went somewhere and his mom offered me one since he got one himself, I picked the Bumblebee since it was a "nice car". I was 8 though.

    First was G1 BB. Next was Classics. And I have far too many Movie BBs to be considered sane.
