    Just like the title reads. In your opinion, do you consider him to be an Autobot or a Decepticon?

    Which group do you display him with.

    Let me just say I LOVE this figure...and that says alot because there aren't too many movie figures that I love. I consider mine to be a Decepticon. His red eyes and his dark paint scheme with flames on it gives me a "Shattered Glass Movie Bumblebee" vibe.

    I plan on covering his Autobot logo with a reprolabels Decepticon symbol and displaing him with my 'Cons.

    How about you? Thanks in advance for posting!!

    He's Bugbite in my collection.

    Or Killer Bee.

    Or Dark Meth Bee.

    Either way, he's not a heroic Autobot any more.

    I think of him as SG Bumblebee, so not a con to me but an evil Autobot instead.

    I don't have him, but when/if I do, he's going to be Bumblebee's evil Decepticon twin brother, Demonbee.

    He murders autobot and decepticon alike. He's not what the Transformers franchise needs, but what the Transformers franchise deserves.

    He is...

    These are the two names I am thinking of for him. Or just call him Cyberfire. But he's definitely a Decepticon.

    Something occurred to me. It seems that there's two core characters that Hasbro refuses to do regular retail release evil repaints of and thats Bumblebee and Optimus Prime.

    I can understand why. They want those two as the flagship charaters in childrens' minds and an evil repaint might be confusing for a kid. Its all about brand recognition.


    With that said, IMO Cyberfire 'Bee is obviously a designers shoutout to an evil Bumblebee in spirit but still meets the needs of Hasbro for him to still be a heroic Autobot
    on the packaging.

    Yeah,the little kids are used to heroic bee & prime,but evil bee & prime is a concept they can't grasp.It's like saying Megatron is made of happiness.

    See also: Fireburst Optimus Prime. Once you remove the bright blue paint from his eyes, he uses a similar deco aesthetic and red-orange translucent plastic as Cyberfire BB. Plus his nasty axe-blaster mechtech weapon...

    Maybe they've been infected with the Hate Plague?

    I consider Speedbee to be on neither side, rather act like TFA lockdown. (A mercenary, takes his victims spare parts, etc)

    I call him "Shattered Glass Bumblebee". I mean, look at his paint job, his eyes, and the way he glares in some poses. He just screams "I'm a Decepticon!"
