Just finished building this little guy. Now it's on to Optimus. I have mixed feelings about this kit. The sculpt and detail are exceptional. It really does a fantastic job at replicating a movie accurate Bumblebee. However, this is NOT a toy. I havn't actually glued any pieces on this kit but as it is, you can't play around with this thing once it's completed. Pieces always fall off. The tires on the back, the yellow pieces on the forearms, the neck detail, the shoulder pads all have a habit of falling off. If glued, this little BB would be a pretty neat little toy to fiddle with. But it's still a delicate model that needs to be displayed and left alone on a shelf. This is in contrast to Prime who (so far) seems sturdier and more toy like than his little yellow buddy. Now the breakdown- Build- Blissfully easy. It really does seem daunting when you see all those sprues with the smallest parts you could imagine. But it goes by very easily with clear instructions. Fiddly bits and warnings- Be careful when removing the eyes from the sprue. They will break in two if you are not careful. Mine did. However, this does not affect anything once they are put in the head. But losing a piece may result if you are not careful. The head is also a tricky bugger to assemble. Mostly getting the little pipes on the neck to stay on. And try not to force anything on this guy. it's very fragile and if you accidentally slip, you'll find pieces flying across the room like I did. Quality- The p;astic here is nothing to write home about. it's standard model kit fare with all the pros and cons you'd expect. Average grade plastic. The paint job is very so-so (at least on BB). The yellow pieces are a little translucent at times and this looks a little bad when you have the painted black details. it shows through the yellow. Nothing here is revolutionary. Articulation- Not bad. But nothing special. You can achieve the high-kick in my photo only if you remove some of the leg armor. The articulation is no better than a good deluxe figure. The head is on a balljoint (two infact) but it cannot move side-to-side without fear of that damn neck piece falling off or moving out of place. The torso is amazingly articulated...until you put on all the pieces and you get waist rotation and a the ability to lean back. But you can't make him curl forward. The basic skeleton can, but BB cannot once all plated up. The legs are standard. You can get as much articulation as you can from the deluxe BBs. The ankles have a little more articulation. Is it worth it? Yeeeeah. Really, the only thing this kit has going for it is a little more of the movie proportions of the CG and all the little details that get lost in the translation to a deluxe toy. I actually think that Battle Blade BB is a much more enjoyable TOY but this is a great display model. For the money, it's not bad. I paid for this almost what the average deluxe is going for in my local stores.
