    sorry if it's been asked 1000 times. but is the new Generations G1-ish Bumblebee the same paintscheme as the Bumblebee from the 3-pack that was out a couple years ago? if so, thats a half-gallon of gas money saved...

    oops, i guess that's "REVEAL THE SHIELD" Bumblebee for all the anal-retentive dorks out there. sorry, my bad...

    If you mean the Reveal the Shield one, yes, it essentially has the same paint scheme.

    Not Henkei, the Walmart Legacy 3-pack.

    Legacy 3-pack had the same deco as Classics Bumblebee, only swapping white paint apps for black.

    RtS Bumblebee has an all new deco based on the Movie design.

    Give me a few minutes, i'll take photos of all three hasbro releases of classic bumblebee side by side

    edit:here you go, legacy bb is the same as classics except the white has been swapped for black (same stripe pattern) and all the grey bits were molded in yellow (so his head is not painted yellow but actually molded in yellow). My favorite version i must say is the RTS one, the yellow is more orange, and it looks great in person

    Yep, I saw it last week. it doesnt have any stripes, and is painted a metallic gold. not my cup of tea, but short of the United WFC CJ and Megatron, none of the japanese stuff does it for me.

    That Reveal the Shield Bumblebee looks really nice, I totally see what you mean about the shade of yellow plastic. I might pick him up if I ever see him in person. Classics is good enough for me otherwise.

    It has been available in the Philippines since the latter part of December 2010.

    Here's a pic of mine:

    Mine shipped from BBTS today; I'll be calling him Hubcap. Sure, it's the wrong head, but he's orange enough to be a different character from Bumblebee and Cliffjumper already set the No New Head trend for the mold.
