    This guy is awesome!!!!!!
    he is a completely new mold than preview or tftm bumblebee.
    if u are considering getting him.
    GET HIM

    i got HA bumblebee the same day i got cannon and i gotta say i like cannon more.
    i dont really like the cannons out but even with them down he is my favorite bumblebee.

    he is also pretty screen accurate.

    GET HIM WHILE U STILL CAN

    also his torso is soooooo much better designed then tftm cannon bumblebee.
    no arm kibble
    movable THUMBS!

    GREAT GREat great great HEAD SCULPT.

    I REALLY RECOMMEND HIM


    only 2 bad things to say

    lisence plate doesnt have anything on it (easy fix)

    and the chest cant be moved its just the front of the car, not a big deal tho



    i give a 10 out of 10. top 5 movie toys out there



    i was lucky enough to find a new clear windowed version, but the solid color still doesnt look bad at all
    you cant go wrong

    He's not a completely new mold, though he is a pretty extensive retool of the original deluxe concept Bee.

    the only similarity is the leg transformation.

    The simple fact that the chest doesn't transform is the reason I am NOT getting this figure.

    I'll stick with my TFTM deluxe and Human Alliance Bumblebee.

    Cannon Bumblebee has an extremely INaccurate chest and face. Besides he is just an extensive retool, and imo has a more boring transformation than the first.

    Human Alliance Bumblebee superior, Cannon Bumblebee inferior.

    It is NOT a new mold. It is a retool. The whole bottom half of him is still exactly like the original. I hate the fact that they didn't even bother to make his chest transform. So I will not buy this version of BB. Sure his arms are more accurate, but they made other parts of him less accurate. Overall I think the original or preview version look much better. And none of the Deluxes can compare to HA BB. HA's just awesome! That's my opinion anyway.

    Wow, now that I've heard such a positive report...

    The biggest problem I had with him is that the car front not separating on his chest. In pictures, it makes him seem so simple compared to the first mold. But if it's not that bad in person,I may think about picking up this guy. Thanks for the good report!

    I was thinking about Preview Bumblebee, but I had heard bad things about mold degeneration, and how he doesn't line up in vehicle mode well. Besides, I'm pretty happy with my TF1 'Bee.

    I do want to get the HA version, but it's kinda expensive...

    If only his chest transformed in some way, even as much as Sideways' and I'd buy him.

    Too much redbull, or too much cocaine today? J/K, with Billy Mayes dead, we may have just found our new pitchman in infomercials. Cannon BB has a lot of positives, and negatives, but I am still glad I picked him up. I like the autobot symbols on the side, the cannons, the new head has even grown on me. I do not like the chest, or the new torso, but he works well in a display with Mudflap and Skids. I predict that by TF6 Hasbro will give us a perfect Bumblebee.

    Owning Preview Bumblebee and HA BB, I don't think I'm missing much. This Cannon Bee can't hold a candle to HA BB, and the underdetailed arms, solid chest, "fat" waist and cannons just break it for me.
