    I have two regular old Classics Bumblebees. Or do I? Identical paint, but one has a red autobot logo on the doors and one does not. Both have white stripes, a white rear wheel well, and grey spoiler. Just that one difference. Is one from that legacy pack or something? Thanks to anyone who knows.

    The red autobot logo on the doors, is it a sticker? First time I heard of it.

    I think it is. I bought this one from someone on the forum and he came still in his twist ties. But I suppose there is a chance he was removed, had stickers attached, and then was later resealed. Hadn't considered that.

    Still, if anyone knows of this being normal in any market, let me know. Thanks, Powersa, for giving me a fallback explanation that makes a lot of sense.

    Hrm, the Legacy pack was in movie colors, my guess is it's a non-US Hasbro version.

    It's either a KO or a custom. Like Soundwinder said, the Legacy pack version had all its white paint replaced with black and the gray/silver plastic was made yellow.

    No release of that mold came with stickers. It was probably removed, had stickers applied and retied the twist ties.

    The stickers were probably applied. I can't find any record (real, or KO) of this figure already with stickers.

    Yeah, Classics Bumblebee only had the rubsign originally. Someone must've just wanted an actual Autobot logo on there.

    Don't know why on the doors though. I would've just removed the rubsign and replaced it with a logo sticker instead.

    I agree with everyone else in thinking that the sticker were applied and then the twist ties re-twisted.
