    Ok, so my Fiance is the best and got me an imported FE 'Bee today.
    He looks awesome, so glad I got him over the RID.
    However, given that I want to get him out and play with him, do we think that he may be quite valuable in the future? In which case I should get the RID bee too?

    Thoughts and opinions welcome.

    I say open him and have fun! That's the point of Transformers after all ^_^
    and to address your concern of future potential value, Hasbro has stated that they will try to release the FE molds some way at some point in the future. So I don't think there will be as huge a demand for the FE figures as a lot of people are thinking right now.

    He's not worth much. Open the package.

    If you want to open it and play with it, go ahead. No reason not to.

    Yup. I didn't realize the baby blue stripes on it..haha. But colorwise as a robot it is more accurate than the yellow from FE line. Although I still prefer my FE BB and I also own the NYCC one... nough bees for me..

    Whatwhatwhat? You'd want to sell a present from your fiancee? Any TF my wife gives me is much more treasured than any I buy.Even Recon Barricade.

    Ya BB is going to be the least valuable of any of the FE figures, I could honestly go buy 10 of them right now from my local TRU. BBTS has them for $11 (10.99) and last I checked they had about 300 in stock. Plus, gift from your wife, means open that puppy up. I dont have one yet but I had the chance to check out a friend's and it looks to be a pretty darn good BB (even with the 'millions' of different versions over the past few years), so good in fact I threw one into my POL at BBTS (since it's $6 cheaper than local retail).

    True value is not a monetary measurement, it is how much fun you will have from opening your figure.

    IMO, buying a transformer and not opening it is defeating the purpose. Open that puppy up!

    Considering FE Bumblebee is worth -$14.99 since you'll never be able to do anything with it but give it away, you may as well open it.

    It's one of those figures you buy to open or don't buy at all unless you collect strictly MISB.
