    Yeah I think it's some kinda FAB, after all, no translucid windows? That is rare nowadays.

    Yep, that has to be the Battle Blade mold.

    I AM curious about the mounted gun though. Wonder if the clip-on weapons system is gonna be the new line-wide gimmick this time.

    so much for things getting better and better.

    And yeah, I'd guess ridiculous weapons is part of the new line-wide gimmick.

    DEFINITELY DotM Bumblebee. Though the windows are a bit...Odd. Makes him look more like a rally car or something.

    And 'no translucent windows'? Look at his front window; it's a bit dark, but no way that is painted.

    Between the gun and the side windows, i'll guess it's themed after the scene with the cars (supposedly?) owned by Carly's boss.

    Haven't we seen test shots moulded with solid windows/fewer paint apps/etc in the past? I'm guessing that vehicle-mounted weaponry will be the 'gimmick' for DOTM's toyline, following on from the Nascars.

    Windows are clear, they just appear dark in the picture. Wonder what that thing on the roof is. Kinda kills the realism...

    Bumblebee himself looks pretty cool, but yeah, the... thing on top kinda looks ridiculous.

    Well at least I hope the giga weapons are interchangeable.

    Y'know so we can make Ironhide hold even more weapons.

    Hmmm... possibly the preview figure for DOTM, like how the remolded deluxe Camaro concept from TFTM '07 was the ROTF preview figure.
