    Ditto.

    Well, from what I can see from the thumbnail, he looks really nice. I'm glad they kept the classic BB look. Judging from his feet, his vehicle mode appears to be somewhat based on the Toyota Matrix.

    I'm not sure how legal this picture is, but damn does BB look nice. Both modes are reminiscent of the original, and the backpack thing looks like it's been lifted straight fromt eh Goldbug toy. Another home run for the Classics line. :thumb

    Not really digging Bumblebee as a rice boy. I may very well hack off the hood and roof scoops, and the wing. Probably loose the graphics, too. Maybe not. Either way, I'm giving mine his G1 toy face.

    I can't seem to find the appropriate emoticon to express my feelings vis-à-vis this statement

    That said, I think the Classics Bumblebee looks pretty cool. Vehicle mode is great, colours are nice (yellow isn't too bright, which is great). Though I dislike the way his crotch just hangs off the windshield like that... and what the hell is that scooter thing?

    Still, very nice bot mode, great head sculpt, another winner from Hasbro!

    Cool, his front seats turn into his upper thighs. Just like in the Alternator concept design sketch.

    Could be the way he's transformed, but his torso looks a little too ... empty ... for me.

    I wonder if the jet ski turns into his weapon?

    Thats the magazine scan. not supposed to be posted or linked here, correct?

    the Takara Tomy logo was added in by whoever scanned it.

    Never did like Bumblebee... until now. That is one incredible piece. Finally a respectable alt-mode for BB.

    Plus, no matter what anyone else says, I still think Megatron kicks ass. Big time. Yes, the colors too (though I wouldn't mind a black and grey version).

    That MIGHT've been scanned from the newsletter

    According to Nevermore's post that pic might've actually been scanned from the TFCC Newsletter

    Vangelus reveals it in his post

    Apparantly the Takara-Tomy Watermark was added via clever photoshopping and the TFCC watermark was removed the same way

    Maybe someone who has the newest issue can tell us for sure
