    HA BB, one of the best molds of BB.

    Well if it's "first", Bumblebee is by far the easiest to find (and good)

    My fave is Skids though so far.

    My favorite is Skids. Bumblebee is great, but Skids is more accurate and an overall better Transformer, IMO.

    I would definitely get Sideswipe, followed by Bumblebee.

    Skids, Bumblebe, and if your a completist, Sideswipe. Nothing against the character. But his robot mode is just so poorly developed. Compared to HA Skids and Bumblebee. Oh and 3,000th post! yay.

    Get BB, then Skids. I passed on Sideswipe because he was just not that much better than the deluxe, from what I've heard.

    Bumblebee is the best, IMO.

    I went Skids. He just seems more polished than BB, who suffers from little paint apps and is kinda lanky and hollow.

    Skids and Sideswipe make Bumblebee look a tad outdated and "overgrown". Sideswipe can't really stand on his own and needs modding if you're into dynamic poses, so get Skids first.

    I will admit Sideswipe isn't the best, but Bumblebee is almost perfectly in-scale with Skids.

    I had to go with BB since he is the definitive Movie BB toy. Also he is quite common everywhere so he will be easy to find.

    Honestly, I really like this whole line so far (although I can't find Skids to save my life), so I would recommend getting all of them eventually.

    Peaugh showed us how to fold the doors down so they are like part of the backpack if that's an issue.

    I can't compare Skids and Bumblebee right now because I don't have Skids, yet.

    My favorite is still Bumblebee.

    Also, Sideswipe isn't as bad as people make him out to be.

    Really depends on your taste.

    If you're more of an alt. mode guy and is gonna display the HA figure in alt. mode, go with Sideswipe.

    If you're a robot mode guy, go with HA Bumblebee or Skids (although Skid's door wings are not accurate, everything else is perfect IMO)

    If you decide to get Bumblebee, heres a tutorial on how to make his legs more accurate:
    it shows the leg mod starting at 0:54

    I have all 3 and they're my favorite of the ROTF line.

    Hope I helped!

    Bumblebee + Mods = win

    Sideswipe + backpack mod = Decent

    Have only seen Skids once but looks to be on the small side.

    Bumblebee is nice, but Skids...

    He takes a little fixing, but the end result is very nice.
