    I am looking to get a Bumblebee to be the main Bumblebee for my movie figures.Since I am not a fan of all the repaints,retools and remolds I only want to have one.

    For me I think the best one HA Bumblebee but since that is the only I had (sold it off) I want to know the opinions of my fellow collectors.

    The only one I might think is better is the leader class one but I am little shaky on spending $40 on it. But who knows maybe DOTM will make an awesome Bumblebee better than the rest.

    So please post what you think is the best movie Bumblebee figure.

    HA Bee and/or Battle Blade Bee.

    Well, if you're not concerned about scale, then really HA 'Bee is the best there is. If you want a deluxe to go alongside voyager and leader class figures, I'd say it's a straight tie between movie 1 Premium and Battle Blades.

    HFTD Battle Blade Bumblebee is the best of the BB figures out there. For a Deluxe figure, he's the most screen accurate BB figure to date.

    Battle Blades, esp. if you want them kinda in scale with eachother. HA is nice, but BB BB is better IMHO

    HFTD B is by far the best in scale and accuracy.

    Battle Ops Bumblebee is the best, bar none. It's got a very intuitive transformation, and is probably the closest to screen accurate of any. It's got a normal head and a working battle mask. There are so many different sounds in so many different combinations, including 2 verses of the G1 opening credits.

    There is none better.


    As far as DOTM, that's one figure I won't be getting. I can't stand what they've done to the Camaro with that stupid spoiler and stripes.

    Without a doubt, HFTD Battle Blades Bumblebee.

    It's easily one of the best deluxes ever. I'll be genuinely surprised if Hasbro manages to top it.

    This is as good as it gets.

    Battle Blades.

    The HA falls short because of two things: the feet, and the lack of right hand. BBBB also has a nicer yellow plastic used.

    Any of the Battle Ops Bee versions (Battle Ops, Costco Exclusive, Masterpiece).

    For me, this is the most movie accurate mold so far.

    But I'm guessing there will be a DOTM version of this mold, hehe. :)

    Battle Blades Bumblebee is substantially better than HA Bumblebee in just about every department. Better headsculpt, better proportions, better mask gimmick, better feet, better arm gimmicks, better posability.

    Screen accurate: Battle Ops
    Better toy: HA
    Better fit (more in-scale to leaderclass and other movie figures): Battle Blades

    I'll go along with the consensus and wholeheartedly recommend Battle Blades Bumblebee. Human Alliance is nice and has some great features, but overall Battle Blades is the best.
