    To my knowledge the versions are:
    Regular BB
    Battle damage BB (from evolution of a hero)
    First encounter BB
    Allspark BB
    Cliffjumper
    Premium BB
    and Stealth BB.

    Am I missing any? I really like the mold and I have the battle damage and cliffjumper versions and am planning to get the stealth version. Other than minor color variations between the rest of them are there any distinctive features that might make them worthwhile?

    i think you got them all. as far as additional/distinctive features, premium and stealth bb both come with battle mask heads as far as i know. i already have the regular one and cliffjumper. hoping to get the stealth version when it comes out.

    I think I meant capture instead of first encounter. I was just refrencing that $20 set with some tiny people to go with BB.

    Yep, the first encounter set features barricade, not bee, outside of that, you got the list right.

    I had to settle for this set instead of the normal on the card variety. He was just too darn hard to find here in Cincinnati!

    Then I found a GI Joe and Hot Wheels scalper selling the "hard to get" TFs at Traders World. Argh! I bought '08 BB but was not happy.

    Good news is that I have more than my fair share of Cliffjumper since CJ is one of my favorite TFs. (I'll admit I got them while vacationing in FL instead of getting them in OH !)

    Does allspark BB = premium BB?

    Nope. Different figures. Allspark BB comes in a can and has that bright blue all over him.

    Not the Movie '08 Camaro mold though, is it? Might not even be real, given the lack of info or other sources, but we'll see.

    yeah, they are only talking about figures that are the same mold, not figures that are painted the same

    Talk about cash cow. I don’t have any others than the carded 76 Camaro and concept Camaro. The only other Bumblebee I’d buy would be the stealth because I like the colors in vehicle form…but doubt I will spend any more money on movie toys.

    Actually there are 2 "First Encounter" packs, both feature Barricade but only one has BB. One is the screen battles with Barricade and the mini figures of Sam Micheala and Frenzy. The other is the Wal-Mart exclusive 2 pack from last year, with 70's BB and Barricade.

    Ah. Good thing I read this. I was going to pass up looking for premiums because I thought it was the guady blue paint.

    There's also an 08 Concept Bee (deluxe) that has a mold variant. There's something up with the rear fender that wasn't quite identical as the rest.

    That's about it.

    Bumblebee is awesome, while cliffjumper is crap.
