    I bought a Cyberfire Bumblebee! :ev: 


    I did want to get one for a while but not at full price but luck would have it I go into TRU and not even knowing it they had a sale on deluxes at $8.00.

    I did not hesitate this time I finally pull triggered on him and I really dig him. His deco so reminiscent of RID Hot Shot and his demonic eyes glowing red.

    There I actually helped contribute to the growing Bumblebee empidemic...even if it was just the cool looking repaint that didn't shelfwarm that much.

    That being said Did you guys ever get a DOTM Bumblebee or did you pass Bee because you can't stand the sight of these swarming hives in your own home? Are you going to contribute in the reduction of Bumblebee?

    I passed on all DOTM 'Bees above Cyberverse - Battle Blades felt like the 'definitive' Deluxe version, so there was no need for me to buy any others.

    I was tempted to pick one up just to reduce the number on shelves (the Cyberfire wave shelfwarmed over here), but then I thought that would only encourage Hasbro to make more of the damn things. :lol

    Didn't buy a single DOTM Bumblebee toy. Saving the money for stuff that's actually worthwhile feels good, man.

    You contributed to this epidemic? ... :jawdropper: 

    BREAKING NEWS: Despite valiant efforts, the Center For Disease Control has failed to contain the rapdily spreading Bumblebee epidemic. The United States is now in a state of emergency, & martial law has been declared until further notice.

    EDIT: changed the false news alert part because I was informed that the DEFCON system is for nuclear threats...and unless Hasbro is putting something in their paint, I doubt the Bumblebee toys are a nuclear hazard. =P

    I try to get one of each character from on-screen per toy line. I got the Deluxe, Cyberverse, Cyberverse Stealth, and Nitro.
    I got the Cyberverses only because they were better than the previous version, and Nitro because I wanted a stealth force mode, and his robot mode is awesome and accurate.

    Cyberfire Bumblebee was the only good thing about all those repaints.

    DEFCON refers to nuclear threat.

    I buy stuff I like. PRID and movie Bees have below zero appeal to me.

    It does? First thing that came to mind, so...yeah. Wait, in Zombies, on the map called Five, the description says that the Zombie outbreak causes the US to go into DEFCON 1 when it reaches the Pentagon...great, now I'm confused. If you have anymore info, just PM me so we don't derail this topic & get it locked.

    I totally agree bro. I love a good flame job. I'm amazed Michael Bay didn't want flames on Bumblebee too.

    Doesn't count.

    Everyone should own Cyberfire Bumblebee.

    A local Wal-Mart has had about 5 or 6 Cyberfire BB's hanging for about a month at least... with tax they're not even $7.50! I've thought about getting one... still haven't.

    It's a delightfully evil toy. You won't be disappointed.

    The only DotM Bees I have are the 2 from the Legends 4-pack with Starscream. Which I got mostly for the Classics Bee and Cybertron Scream. I am awfully tempted to get Murderfire Bee though.

    I bought Cyberfire for my kid brother but am contemplating buying one someday down the line just to give him a Decepticon Reprolabel and call him Darkbee.

    I think Hasbro is just responding to the epidemic occurring all over the world for the last decade by helping to repopulate with millions of bees. How environmental of them.

    You should. Cyberfire Bumblebee is cool as hell (regardless of being a modern day Bee), and that deluxe was one of my most anticipated figures since getting back into this shit. I also got it like half off too along with Specialist Ratchet, so that made it even better.
