    Should someone with a masters degree have difficulty transforming 08 BB? Because I sure did ;-) I guess that's what happens when you grew up in the G1 era.

    I had a problem too... I ended up forcing the automorph to slip, then I threw it against a wall, and it fixed itself (back when they were $50 a pop in the secondary market... stupid me...)

    Then again, I got the one with the fingerprint in the window...

    Umm, speak for yourself, I am a G1 kid all the way born in 77 and I had no problems with Concept Bumblebee. He's pretty easy if you ask me, nothing like Alt Grimlock or smokecreen.

    I had a bit of trouble at first, but then I realized that I hadn't pulled one of the arms all the way out. Turns out one of them sticks a bit more than the other.

    At first I had a little trouble getting his front-end folded into place for the bot mode. But after a couple TFs, it's all good.

    Some of the RID cars gave me trouble too, Sideburn in particular.

    Depends what the degree is in. ;) 

    I don't know how difficult 08 BB is because I STILL CAN'T FIND ONE...

    SAD FACE :( .

    I've found that in general I'm really poor at Transforming a lot of stuff compared to what I used to be.

    And yeah - llamatron - I hear you, man. :(

    Yeah, the whole "hood getting caught on arms" during the automorph really took me for a loop.

    Didn't help when a shoulder pad popped off while I was trying to force the automorph, causing me to freak out and thinking I'd broken my precious, sought-after BB.

    Adults who can't operate kids toys is one of the saddest things I see around here. Their toys, Alt Grimlock, 08 BB, MP Prime...TOYS.

    I mean, BB has AUTOMOPHS. He, with a little help, TRANSFORMS PARTS OF HIMSELF.

    I had issues with his legs when I tried to get him into "jet" mode.

    Keep looking man. He is totally worth it.

    I thought Concept bee was just complex enough. Although there were some spots I could see giving people issues. Did you read the instructions?

    I think Sideburn is quite possibly the most complicated and hard to transform deluxe EVER.

    Am I the ONLY person who didn't have trouble with him? I am not trying to be a jerk, I am serious I see this alot and don't remember it being that tough. I may have to check him out when I get home.

    I recently realized that one of the reasons I keep most figures MISP anymore is because I can't figure out the @#$!@#! transformations, and I hate looking at instructions.
