    I'm planning to display

    Optimus Prime(ROTF Leader)
    Ironhide(Leader)
    Jazz(Human Alliance)

    Now here's two problems...

    1) I don't know which Bumblebee to display (read the title)

    2)What Ratchet would be the best in scale with these guys...

    Battle Ops would be my choice. Voyager Ratchet is your only option of you're looking for something roughly in scale with the rest.

    Neither Bumblebee scales with that group well at all.

    Yeah, if you're aiming for scale I'd go with the Human Alliance Bumblebee.

    If you don't care about scale, though, I strongly suggest the Costco Gold Battle Ops BB. He's definitely (IMO) the best movie Bumblebee representation. I know he's WAY off in scale, but he just oozes awesomeness.

    I second this, and it comes with a gold chrome Legends Bumblebee.

    But if you care about scale, maybe Battle Blade Bumblebee would be better.

    This.

    If you're just looking for a nice Bumblebee to display with them I'd go with Battle Ops Bee.

    My movie 1 Autobots go like this:
    ROTF Buster OP
    Movie 1 Voyager Ratchet
    Movie 1 Voyager Ironhide
    HA Jazz
    Battle Blades Bumblebee (HftD)

    I think the scale is very close except for Jazz, but I have him crouched on one knee to get the hight correct.

    I love my leader bee. No gimmick in the bot really helps.

    From your choices go with battle ops BB over DOTM leader class BB. Just a better figure overall. Leader BB has too small of a head for his body and looks silly. I personally would go with Human Alliance BB as others have suggested. Ratchet, either 07 movie or Target DOTM. Too bad about leader BB, I really liked him at first then I noticed that small head and ever since its bugged me.

    Battle Ops Bumblebee is the best Bumblebee released to-date. Of the two choices, go with that.

    Agreed though that HA Bee would scale better though.

    Ratchet would be Voyager Premium Ratchet from the '07 movie.

    Costco Gold Battle Ops BB or HA. I have all 4 (BOBB, GBOBB, HA, and Leader) and those two are my favorite. HA for scale Gold cause he looks awesome

    I prefer Battle ops over DOTM. The second I saw the DOTM BB, it was like there was an invisible aura pushing me away from it. Never liked it and never have set eyes on it since then.
