    Does anyone on this board own a Deluxe Movie Bumblebee that is not defective and can actually transform back to car mode? I ask because I've gotten two so far that could not, and one of my coworkers has two that are defective. Target had two more the other day, but they all looked defective.

    Mine's fine but I see what you mean, it's a pain getting everything lined up properly in car mode and staying that way.
    Only thing bugging me is his hood likes to flip down alot, get's a little annoying.
    Have a feeling that auto feature is going to get worse over time

    What do you mean that it won't transform back?


    Occasionally, mine has some seams that need to be worked a little... but it eventually goes back satisfactorily. If it weren't for the painted windows and the movie head, this would be one of my favorite deluxes in a long time. Cool figure!

    I have the "defective one" but everything works just fine, just gotta make sure that you transform him back to car mode doing the chest part last.

    Mine works fine. Although I do see CM's point. Of the movie toys I have, BB is the only one I can see the automorph causing a problem if it broke.

    I ordered him from HTS as part of the sale. Only $7.50 shipped. Now to resist the urge to buy him when I see him today instead of waiting.

    I have the, ahem, "defective" one that's been breaking on people and it's perfectly fine for me, survived several transformations and nothing's wrong with him at all.

    Mine is the defective version.

    Mine transforms VERY smoothly. No trouble whatsoever.

    The Wal-Mart 2-pack one is the defective kind. My brother picked it up and brought it over.

    Well, I looked through 32 Bumblebees today, and not one of them had the proper pieces, so I'm not getting him until I find a correct one.

    Same here. Just because alot of someone elses' didn't break, I can't afford/don't want to risk it.

    Exactly. I will either wait to find one that has the correct pieces, or just wait for that rumored Voyager version.
