    Good transformation but not as good as it should be for the price it is. When I first heard of this guy I thought each one of his limbs would have been as complicated as a Deluxe TF to transform.

    Are the doors supposed to swing freely like that? Kinda unimpressed at how sloppy the thing is. I mean, I know bigger TF's are akward, but I never had that much trouble with Unicron or Primus...

    I will admit the price tag for him is a bit much. I think he should of been $60 instead of $90 to be honest but I still think I will get this guy as he seems to be my favorite transformer in the movie other then Prime and I love the 07 Camero concept. You've got to admit he's cheaper then what the actual Camero concept will be lol.

    I just keep thinking "why couldn't they have done that for Starscream?" or even Prime. We've had Alternators for a while now, this is just a bigger one with lights. But a big complex F-22? THAT would be worth 90 bucks. Of course, they'd probably want to give it light-up, motorized-spinning-guns, and so he'd *still* have gigantic hands under the wings in jet mode... :p

    hey I thought that the designs were as close as the real thing? WTF?! There's no driver seat on Ultimate Bumblebee and when you flip him over on the underside you can clearly see some robot parts... While in the movie... well...no mass shifting B.S. but morphing is ok. WTF? This is a waste of money. I'll just by a second MP-01 or MP-05 for $100.

    This figure is just one massive dissapointment. I would have happily sacrificed the electronic crap for a load of auto-morph gimmicks to get him looking as close to his move incarnation as possible.

    Strange to hear him "talk" now, definitely a clearance item if I ever pick it up, shame to not have a perfect transformation, the "whip it" God forbid, will get old one of these days

    That dude is seriously rough.

    As a representation of Bumblebee, I'll pass, but as a large, extremely cool animatronic transformable robot with lights and sounds count me in.

    He seems to be having a lot of trouble. Are we sure it can't transform on it's own?

    Holy crap. That guy is manhandling Bumblebee. I'd hate to see his girlfriend's breasts once he's through with them.

    Really seems like there's too much forced tranformation, and the doors most likely aren't supposed to pop off like that and just swing free.

    This Bumblebee might be the best one, but it really sucks compared to what it should really be...

    I have yet to be convinced, though it did seem the person transforming him didn't have too much experience...
    I'll wait for reviews on this one, but even then I'm doubtful I'll bite.

    This video has turned this from a must buy into a get only on clearance if it is less than half the price.

    Looks good in vehicle mode, but not so much in robot mode.

    :lol  .....its more like a glorified lego....I hate when pieces pop off and reattach somewhere...That is not a transformation....Also the front end color doesn't quite match the rest of the car body....Clearance for sure...

    Hehe... The taillights are so bright that it lights up the plastic of the whole back end of the car!

    Definite pass for me, unless it goes on clearance for under $40.
