    They are both a pretty good improvement over the original. I think I'm going to only pick up rocket BB though. The preview fig is just a bit too much like the TFTM release to warrant a purchase.

    Or, I could collapse into OCD weakness and pick him up the second I see him on a peg...we shall see.

    So the preview one has 1 hand, and a silly missile launcher? And the "Cannon" one has 2 little gatling guns, and no chest automorph? And they BOTH have creepy as hell eyes?
    Pass on both. Neither are good/different enough to make me buy another Deluxe Bumblebee.

    And plenty of bitching from people who want "new" toys instead of reused molds.

    Oh, I am very much used to it. Have been for awhile.

    I'll still vote with my wallet though.

    Looks much better and improved than the other movie BBs, but still pass. I'm not rich!

    He looks pretty good, but the windows still bother me. I have a feeling he'll be added to my collection anyways, as the rest of him looks great. Even the inaccurate chest looks good, imo. My Premium Bumblebee will most likely be renamed Goldbug (he is a little shiny). That way I can have a reason to have two Deluxe class Movie Bumblebee's in my collection.

    ...The hell? That cannon Bumblebee is a freaking joke! The gimmick is simple, the molding is pathetic and extremely lacking in details, the greenish plastic hue is just so freaking weird and not to mention ugly...Real shame, the early pics had me hopeful about this one. :/

    The Cannon BB looks so much cooler then the Preview BB, so I might buy it. It's probably the fact it's got more of that 'new movie inaccuracy' feel I guess that makes it so appealing to me (Autobot logo on the fenders, chest and doors not angled, sholder cannons that he doesn't really have) and different from the Premium BB I got in the WM 3-pack (although I admit, I never really wanted movie BB then, I just wanted Classics BB)

    The icing on the cake for the heavily remolded bumblebee would have been for the wheels to be properly positioned in the heel. Oh well, I like it enough to get it even though I own the original. It seems like a cartoony interpretation of the live action model.

    I like the ROTF (Human alliance?) Bumblebee that comes with Sam that can fit into him in car mode and has a movie accurate chest

    I'll be getting cannon Bumblebee and passing on the preview one. Hopefully I can swap out the head from '07 concept 'bee, the new one is scary looking.

    it seems wierd that they used the more transparent windows on the version that doesnt have a "proper" interior, and the almost solid windows on the version that does (or at least attempted it).
