    Ok I currently have too many of the Classics 'Bee mold.

    I have the original '06 version, Cliffjumper, the one from the Walmart Legacy of BB 3-pack, the RTS version, and I have the United one on preorder to serve as Goldbug.

    I like them all for different reasons and I'm not sure which to use as my one and only 'Bee in my eventual classics display....

    All this discussion made me go to ebay and replace the Classics one I sold last year. Just got a loose one for $12.50 with free shipping!

    Usually what I do with Multiple bumblebees is I just randomly put one into a shelf group. I like to think of it as playing the toy Historian. Rather than just chucking out the old versions or making customs.

    Stick your old 06' bumblebee with the original classics Autobots.

    The walmart version with any ragtag universe autobot patrol on a different shelf.(I believe that pack was out around the same time, even if it was'nt technically universe)

    gold bee with other import autobots. I don't import crazy often. But I would put that one with my henkei Inferno and Prowl.

    Then place the reveal the shield version with those dudes. Should contrast Wreck Gar or Perceptor well enough.

    I dig that classics bumblebee mold. Since his backpack looks like a hoodie. Also the feet while evokeing G1 clunky feet can be pretty dynamic, and balance the figure super well.

    Original.

    Or dump the spares and put them towards the Henkei one if you can live with a bling BB.

    I don't have the original as I prefer the black striped Walmart version. Definitely use the United one as Goldbug, especially with a Renderform or Devil Horn's. I say upgrade the RTS with Renderform to Hubcap. I think that orangish yellow color works best for that. Personally if I were to use all of those molds I would keep Walmart as Bumblebee and upgrade the original to Bumper with Renderform as per the first picture here.

    EDIT: Actually that picture uses Henkei Bumblebee as Bumper, not Classics as it does not have some of the white detailing.

    Put them all together and call them The Hive. He needs spare bodies with G.I. Joe, Death's Head, the Hate Plague, Serpent O.R. and the FOC universe around.

    Totally agree. I can't wait for the Bumper and Hupcap heads to be released.

    I followed G1 as a kid and a little bit of Beast Wars into my teens. I've never followed the comics and wasn't into RID/Armada/Energon/Cybertron.

    My collection is mostly all G1 with some Beast Wars. I buy figures from other lines (Movie/Animated/Prime) if they homage G1 characters in look and/or character.

    Bumper and Hubcap look awesome but, I'm a little torn because to be honest, i don't even know who they are.

    As for the Classics mold, the funny thing is, I'm not really a huge fan of Bumblebee. I like the mold because it is very G1-esque in robot mode but, I guess somehow I just kept subconciously buying it every time it came out. LOL

    I think the only ones I'm missing are Botcon Bugbite and Henkei.

    SeiberBirdR--is there any way to mirror those pics because I'm at work and the filter here won't let me log onto renderform's website. :(
