    I want to know if Cannon Bumblebee arms are able to fit on BB Bumblebee?
    I'm planning to do a arm swap to remove the giant arm pads on BB Bumblebee when its available.

    Considering hardly anyone has the toy you might be waiting awhile for an answer

    Hard to say. I can't remember from the videos of the mold, but the arms might be important for alt-mode. Though I would imagine it should be possible for bot-mode, as the shoulders look like they could be the same tooling (aka they might have the same sized ball joint).

    Since we're asking such things, I'm wondering if that head can be swapped onto the old mold.

    The new body is interesting. A mix of very nice improvements and steps backward. I think I still feel like premium Bee was the best deluxe incarnation so far.

    BUT- battle blades bee definitely has the first respectable unmasked head mold any deluxe has had.

    I bought this guy today, and the arms are swapable! but they look really stumpy. I wouldn't try the head, I was transforming mine back to robot mode, and his head snapped off. Im sure it would snap off as well, if you were trying to pull it off. maybe mine was just defective

    Sure. But battle blade bumblebees arms are longer since the mold is taller now overall than the bee body were used to.

    Pick it up. You might like the conversion weapon arms. I know I dig the uppercut axe for a little special attack and vehicle to robot transformation melee action.

    What are the chances of partswapping between movie 1 Premium BB and HFTD BBBB in an effort to create the 'perfect' Bumblebee?

    I suspect that the differences in the molds may be too great to make it successful, but I would prefer his toes to be painted etc...

    Would be interested to see pics of the arm swap as well.

    The arms ARE swappable between cannon bb, and the original concept bb. so all three should be able to swap arms. heads and legs, im not sure.
