    The more I see of that mold, the more that I like it. It would look even better if it was mostly black, with purple and silver accents (aka Skywarp). As for FAB Bumblebee, he's pretty cool looking. I'm already planning on at least getting the Deluxe '08 Camero BB, so I might get this one too. I like that this one has his one hand in it's gun mode.

    Yeah I saw those but I didnt see anything saying he was on Ebay.

    Bumblebee looks quite good for a FAB maybe hes the Deluxe but then the hinges on the side of the car would look cheap. The only reason I think he may be a Deluxe is because all the other FABs have huge retarted heads.

    It's the FAB. We've seen a picture of the Deluxe, and it has more detail to it's transformation, and it has dark tinted windows from what we can see. That and this one has a very simplified transformation like the other FAB's.

    BB isn't bad as far as kiddie formers go.

    I really like thundercracker's paint job and I'm sure if I still played with toys I would rather enjoy the huge undercarriage that shoots missles.

    That Bumblebee is definately new, I've not seen him before. Looks like that will be the first 2008 Camero version on the market, too.

    Thundercracker, well, plenty seen of him already.

    I guess BB uses his gun a lot in the movie, since that's two versions with a sculpted gun hand.

    Well, the gimmick of the Fast Action Battlers does seem to be missile launchers built into the toys, so I'm guessing that arm mode was chosen to best incorporate the gimmick.

    First he can't speak -- now he can't see, either.

    BUMBLEBEE isn't a bad 'entry level' Transformer at all in my opinion.
    Still, like the FAB version of JAZZ, I think the rather obvious square of plastic behind the head could have been avoided with just a little more thought to the design.

    I'd say it's the FAB. The legs are simialr to FAB Jazz's in that they are solid ratehr than being formed form car parts. I would imagine the 08 deluxe will just be a remold of the 74 deluxe

    that is obviously not transformed correctly, look at all those unused splits and joins over his chest

    I'm not getting it, but that BB isn't too bad for the age range the FaBs are targeted at.

    Looks like I'll be getting both of these. I like BB's looks and I need a Thundercracker to fill the hole in my Classics collection because I don't feel like paying 300-something-dollars when I only want the one figure.

    Pretty cool, nice to see a non-Ultimate form of Bumblebee get the gun-arm. His car mode's a bit too squat, though.
