Didnt see an existing topic for him. Don't let his appearance on the card fool you. In package, he's a squatty little creature. tear him free, and start moving stuff around into a proper robot mode, and you end up with something wonderful. Battle Blade Bumblebee is the tallest of the deluxe Bumblebees, the most complex, and the most, well... bad-ass. He puts every other movie bumblebee to shame. his fierce look isnt exactly movie accurate, but when he looks this good, it doesnt matter. He has both an axe and an arm cannon, and nothing is sacrificed to add these weapons. He has the battle mask as well, and again, nothing is sacrificed. his headsculpt is great, and really makes the "preview" wave bumblebee's head look scared and confused in comparison. Mold-wise, everything is new. no recycled bits from the concept camaro mold. legs transform pretty much the same way, but they're all new parts. the arms are heavily detailed, unlike the chunky flat surfaces of cannon bumblebee. Okay guys, try to strike an awesome pose. Way to suck, preview bee. Battle Blade Bumblebee looks awesome no matter how he's posed. even just standing there, he looks intimidating. I'm really reminded of animated's dynamic sculpts with him. For posability, he's got everything preview bee has, and more. he has a thigh swivel, and the parts his arms are attached to can move up and down, much like human alliance bumblebee. he also has a waist swivel. for transformation, he's pretty much human alliance bumblebee. the way the abdomen folds in, the arms, doors, front wheels, even the top of the car. it's all the same. but his chest is much better. each half is articulated, and parts of the lower grill are also articulated to break up the chest even more. Preview bee, go away. you're garbage. even if you're suffering from bumblebee exhaustion, you really should pick this guy up. he puts every other bumblebee to shame, including human alliance bumblebee. There are a few negatives though. he's lacking in paint applications. he's got them where they count the most, but there's no license plate, and the exhaust pipes are untouched. it's minor when you consider that everything is for the most part cast in the correct color of plastic, and he has a pretty insane part count due to all the features on the toy. the only other negative is that he looks pretty boring front the top, because of the hood of the car that surrounds his head. may not bother you, but it looks off to me. he can look pretty odd when viewed from the front in some poses, as he'll look like he's slouching because of the slope of the car's hood. he is hands-down, my favorite deluxe from the various ROTF lines. no competition. Here he is with my other deluxe movie bumblebees. I like that he's more of a traditional bumblebee shade of yellow instead of the kinda-orangey shade of the concept camaros.
