    Beatmix Bumblebee now at Sharper Image stores

    I walked into Sharper Image and there was Beatmix Bumblebee for the Ipod. It was a shame that I could not try it out because there was no MP3 player around. It did mention on the sign that it also records up to a 1min of playback.

    That is so awesome. I was playing with that yesterday. It's expensive, at 59.99.
    You plug in your mp3 player of choice, and he plays the songs and dances...err...moves and shakes.
    His eyes light up, and you can move his head and arms. Turn one wheel, and it makes an exploding sound, the other wheel does a transforming sound kind of.
    Each foot has a button you push down for other sounds too.
    And yes, he records a tiny bit of music.
    We put the screaming part from Come To Daddy on him, so when people walked up, and pushed the autbot logo, he would scream.
    They have ipods on display at Sharper Image, you should have asked if they would hook it up so you can check it out.
    It's a fun thing to play with, but way too expensive.
    That yellow cord is what you plug into your mp3 player.

    It's a lot bigger than those wacky dogs.
    I took this picture when I was in there, so I hope this helps a bit.

    Nice, so he's out through Sharper Image for those wanting to get him early? I've added the link Deadend posted in the other thread to keep this all together.

    I've got to say, I love the idea behind this thing. It even fits in with how the 'bee is portrayed in the Movie.

    I just wanted to bump this thread, because the new one was frontpaged, and this one wasn't.

    Nice, but there is only one MP3-playing TF I'm interested in this summer, and his name is Soundwave, and he is all types of awesome...

    Hey Discover Card Members, you can redeem your cashback bonus for Sharper Image gift cards, and it doubles the value! You can either turn $20 into $40, or $40 into $80. So either way you can get a serious discount on Beatmix Bumblebee.

    Aww if I did'nt know it wasnt posted already I coulda said it was at TSI, I WORK THERE! I play with it all the time we made him record Dick In A Box! We're also getting an Optimus Prime Transformer No details on that one yet but Bumblebee is $59.95 the Optimus is about the same price too Bumblebee's TSI code is HB411 and Optimus' is HB412 our systems say the Optimus we should be getting is roughly 12 in. tall and about 3 pounds.

    Hip, my cousin works at TSI at the Valley Fair Mall, I'm always hanging out in there, using the painful chairs.
    Bumblebee is fun to play with, but too pricey for me.
    I wonder if Prime is going to be the same type of thing.

    I dont think the Beat mis Bumble bee plays MP3's. It acts like a speaker i think but like...a dancing speaker if u know wat i mean. But yeah i have my eye out 4 the MP3 playing Soundwave too. Then ima get the Beatmix and plug him into Soundwave. Then it'll look like Bumblebee is dancing while Soundwave is playing the music (in alternate mode or course). Its gonna be sweet!!!!

    Yeah, it's basically a speaker. You hook your ipod up to it, and it plays songs, and lights up and kind of dances a bit.
