    What do you guys think the best RotF Bumblebee toy is? I'm thinking of getting one later today and I don't know which one to get. I'm looking at the Human Alliance one because of how it looks. I heard about the leg swapping for that one, and it doesn't seem like too bad of an idea to have a pretty movie accurate toy. What are your thoughts?

    I honestly prefer the Preview Bumblebee. In my opinion it has the most accurate head sculpt of any Bumblebee toy.

    I'll be honest. None of them. I got all 3 of them, because they were different molds, but neither of them really are that good. If I could choose one it would be the Preview version, due to the better accuracy to the CGI appearance.

    I go with Human Alliance Bumblebee. When DOTM comes around I'm getting the Leader BB.

    He is basically a smaller HA Bee, I think in some ways he is better than HA. He is also a very pose-able fig.

    Definitely battle blade bb. After some mods and paint, he's perfect.

    I prefer the Preview to be honest. Probably because you can take weapons in and out of his hand, sure I do wish that he had a battle mask but all I need is another premium Bumblebee and rotf Bumblebee will be perfect.

    Thanks for all the input, guys. Are any of these still in stores? The only one I've been able to find lately is the HA one.

    The Battle Blades is the most accurate, has the most features, and is more in-scale with the other figures (which is why the Human Alliance one suffers). He's been shelfwarming in my area, so I would assume he isn't too hard to find.

    Battle Blade is still at Hasbro Toy Shop incase you interested.
    On a note the preview Bumblebee has a slight arm issue when you first take him out of the package his arm falls off. But it just needs to be pushed in tighter and has stayed in ever since.

    I only have one movieverse 'bee, and I got him just yesterday, but it's a really outstanding figure in terms of features, posability and sculpt.

    I'm refering to Battle Blade Bumblebee. 103% recommended.

    Battle Blades is the best bee for your bucks.

    HA is a bit 'chunky'

    However...if you've got 25-30 bucks to burn on clearance, Battle Ops BB is a lot of fun.
