    In recent years we have seen Bumblebee go through a lot of major changes.
    Taking away his voice, making him a sports car, far from what he first started out as back in the '80's.
    With all these changes made to him seems to change our view on what makes Bumblebee...well Bumblebee.

    So I'm curious what things would you change, or change back, about Bumblebee to make him a more likable character in your eyes?

    I'd make him a yellow smart car that can talk.

    I'll make him a mechanical version of Tim McGee from NCIS. Unassuming, polite, helpful, highly courageous when the situation calls for it.

    I'm okay with pretty much any reimagining of Bee a series wants to do as long as he is yellow and SPEAKS.

    I'd make him a Pony....*Trollface.jpeg*

    In all seriousness I would probably turn him into a modern Mini Coupe. Sort of like a cross between his 80's image and his later sports car image.

    I'd turn him into a SMART-type car
    and he can still talk, VERBALLY. none of this electronic Groaning shit or Buzz-beeps, He's Bumblebee, Not R2-D2.
    He'd still be just taller than the average human, and he'd be a promotion for Smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles. (Smaller Alt-mode needs less Energon, puts out less Pollution)

    I'd make him a small car again and give him JD from Scrubs personality.

    I'd remove the character completely, and replace him with Hot Shot

    I would take the "spy" aspect and run with it.

    Make him like a young James Bond, with gadgets galore (grappling hooks, stealth mode, an all purpose tool ala sonic screwdriver), and he'd be smooth talking. He would be confident but still mess up now and then.

    As much as I adore the Gen5 Camaro, I wouldn't mind seeing him as the new Beetle.

    I really do love the new Bee, so I wouldn't change a thing personality wise.

    sooooo .... G1 Bee it is!

    He'd speak for sure, but keep the beeps for minicon translation, or know their language despite there being no minicons. He could use it as a means to tick off 'cons.
    I'd make him a bit more wanting to prove himself but not so obviously in the "little man syndrome" way, more so, in a way that he doesn't know his place/ feel comfortable in his skin. Like young Naruto, but on ritelin(spell?). And a scolar aspect too, something where his wealth of odd knowledge comes in handy.
    And his horns. They must return.

    He must be yellow and he must speak. I also wish that his presence was toned down. He should not be a heavy hitter such Starscream ect.
