    I never owned a iDog or any sorta mp3 home player before. And am wondering if even for a TF buff if Beatmix Bumblebee is worth the um $40. Is the playback quality good? Is it compatible with iPods?

    I don't own it, but I think it's a tad too pricey at $40, when you can get a cheap mini-stereo for around $10. I hear it plays well, but the moving gears and such can be heard over the music at times. Looks compatible with anything with a headphone jack, including iPods

    I got him and he is great. He was only 20 bucks at sharper image a few months ago.

    I am a Bee fan and he is one of the characters I focus on collecting so I picked one up. I enjoy it. It has much better sound than an iDog and yes it is compatible with iPod or any player. All you need to do is plug in the headphone jack.
    I really like him. Is he worth $40 bux. If you are a collector and don't care about whether it transforms or not, sure. He also records as he plays so when he is on and dormant, he will play little snippits of the music he has been playing.
    I would say yeah he is worth it.
