    looks like Hasbro fixed BB's stingers. Elite Guard BB's stingers go all the way in like they were intended

    proof? you could be a liar? i dunno, people just like to see things when they are announced because its better than saying it alone. try a pic showing how nice the fit for his stingers are.

    The fixed stingers have been known about for awhile now.

    edit: Bah, beaten by tamo by mere seconds.

    Of course if you're THAT suspicious, it's also possible to mod/fix the new toy and then just tell people it was always that way. :)

    Hopefully the upcoming Bumblebee 3 pack AniBee will be fixed since that's the one I plan on getting.

    bah, better? because he's more show accurate? i could see your point, but i honestly think the color scheme of the EG. Bumblebee looks so much more bad ass. I'm glad they fixed it, even though it really only took about 3 minutes with a dremel - just means less work i have to do when i finally get mine though. go hasbro, you finally listened to some suggestions. lol

    I've seen that toy dozens of times before, but for some reason it took those blurry, oddly angled pictures to make me realize how dang awesome it is. I officially resolve to buy him and call him Hornet.

    He's been "fixed"?

    ...I guess this means no bouncing babybumblebots in our future. :(
