    Interesting. Wasn't expecting there to be any differences to this version. Weren't Bumblebee's eyes green on the original version? Might just be me, but it looks as though there might be some more silver paint-apps on him. As for Sam's new shirt, don't really care. If I get this version of Bee, Sam will be going into the parts bin.

    I'd love to see what they could do to this figure for TF3 (what with the alterations to Bee's design), but I'm not confident the size class will be used for TF3's toyline. Might just get this Bee and alter it myself.

    All I know is that this had better mean that there is a Mudflap repack on the way.
    And I don't see anywhere on the packaging that is part of the HFD...other than the package being yellow, there is no sticker or anything.

    Easy pass, thankfully. Money better spent on Jazz anyway!

    You know what's sad? I kind of want to buy this.

    I say that now, but, I'll probably never get anything that I say I'll get. :stick:

    Giving Bee a right hand would've been a worthwhile change. Changing the color of Sam's shirt...not so much.

    Also, HA Jazz is up for preorder on there now - I don't remember seeing him there before.

    I was just thinking about buying a second one. Its a great mold.

    At least a varient would be a excuse to buy it again.

    They are never making that one. At least not the one you see prototyped. It was prototype test thrown together by the takara transformers staff to demonstrate how the human alliance line could work. Pre-bumblebees design.

    I think I can safely guarantee another HA Bumblebee variant come TF3. I have absolutely no source, but outside of the HA line getting totally cancelled, I think it's basically 'confirmed'.

    I loved the HA mold, and I have no shortage of Bumblebees in my collection, but ever since seeing pics of the new Deluxe, HA BB has lost its lustre somewhat.

    Ya know, maybe this could be a way to have another Bumblebee to do the two hand mod....

    And get another Sam figure! Though, it would also be nice to have a normal expression on his face... I can't tell with these pics.

    That's just progression, if they do a new HA Bee for TF3 then it will in all likelihood be even better then the new deluxe, which was better then the HA, which was better then the first deluxe etc etc.
