    I figured the famous yellow sportscar scout needed a thread of his own. :)  So like with the Arcee thread we can talk about how he's cool,why you like him,what do you think of his latest appearences so far,etc.

    Myself he does need s a little work with some characterization but overall it's a nive homage to his film counterpart. And I have to be honest I'm not at all bothered by his beeping noises.

    It's pretty hard to find things to appreciate about him..

    Oh yes. This will be fun. Oh yes.

    I loved him in Operation Bumblebee. At least when we saw him since those episodes were shared with Ratchet for some fucking reason.

    Whatever you say, sunshine.

    Ah, Bumblebee, or R2-B2 as I like to call him.

    I like this incarnation of Bumblebee. He's my third favorite right after Animated and G1.

    His quick-thinking in perilous situations, for one. Got a Decepticon jet strafing you? Secure the high ground and jump onto him when he passes by! Got a spider-like helicopter with a staff of statues? Play possum, then sucker punch!

    'Bee may not be the strongest fighter, but he's got some damn good skills.

    I love this version of Bumblebee and I think he's a great character. My favorite episodes of him were the 'Operation: Bumblebee' episodes, and I hope that he'll get some more focus episodes soon so he can get some more characterization. I also don't mind his beeps, but I hope that he might can get his voice back at some point in the show.

    YES! :D 

    It's about time 'Bee gets his own appreciation thread. I even somewhat talked about it sometime ago. Thank you very much for this. He seriously deserves it. :thumb 

    Anyway, I really love how Bumblebee managed to take the spark extracter away from Megatron while being inside the ground bridge in Operation: Bumblebee Part One as well as sucker-punching Airachnid when he pretended to be frozen by the immobilzer in Partners. Unlike some people, I am not bothered by his bleeps and besides it's not his fault he lost his ability to speak back on Cybertron. I'm even considering getting his deluxe figure even though it's practically a shelf-warmer everywhere I go. I honestly feel sorry for all his toys that Hasbro is trying to sell and were never given a good home. :( 

    Yeah, I'm that pathetic.

    You're welcome. :) 

    In fact I was thinking of doing something like this after you talked about it in the Arcee thread.

    I aprreciated the fact Operation Bumblebee was a great episode it made me like him, unfortunatley any other episode I think he's just a waste of space.

    That being said I like him in Operation Bumblebee because I understood him for once. If only more often he emoted more.

    Also the Urbana 500 is a sweet car.

    I love him in every episode he's in. Operation Bumblebee was awesome, and one of my favorite episodes yet.

    The moment when he snagged the Spark Extractor was literally tops.

    I hated that just because Megatron was being stupid. Why the hell was he walking so slow through the ground bridge? He should have been at his base by then.

    That's just Megatron being Megatron. He's overconfident.

    Really? Wow. :eek: 

    All I know is Bumblebee honestly doesn't deserve the bashing he almost always seem to get lately especially the TFP version . Heck, a lot of Transformers characters doesn't deserve even half the bashing they seem to get from time to time. At least, that's what I realize just recently.

    I don't really care about him, but he should have been a bug.

    Ground bridge=safety

    Of course, that's like walking across a border and assuming you're safe from gunshots. MacGyver did that all the time. "It's alright, Pete. The guys in dragsters with machine guns that want the microfilm of their nuclear weapon plant back can't hurt me now that I drove through a gate."
