    I bought movie Bumblebee and Wreckage figures which I still haven't opened. I'm not a MISB collector, although they look nice packaged, but I want to know how good are they opened. Are there any noticeable and potentialy annoying QC issues with them? I remember folks complaining on their automorph features, but do these "faults" ruin the figures or what??

    You'll hear a lot of bad things about Bumblebee because of the number that broke because it's automorph spring was too strong, but keep in mind it's the upset people who are more inclined to talk about a figure, I've seen and know of more cases where the toy was fine than not.

    As for quality, I like Bumblebee but he is dull in robot mode paint aps, something his upcoming 09 version is fixing. Wreckage I dont have but I hear a lot of good things about him.

    Meh, Wreckage is my least favorite. He doesn't seem to fit with the movie toys, actually feels more like an energon toy.

    I've bought 2 BBs... first one stressed and broke with the press of a button. Second one stresseswith button press, so he's never been transformed. Had to take out a few pins and two screws to fix the first BB, so a little work and even a broken BB is a decent BB.

    Never had a problem with my wreckage.

    All in all this line has a lot of silly issues... BB fix, brawl shoulder fix, optional swindle neck fix. Thank goodness my blackout and wreckage are fine.

    I don't know if this is the case with everyone's wreckage but when ever I move his arms his torso moves around. Other than that he is a good figure.

    Bumblebee is meh for me, I don't hate him, yet I don't love him.

    Leave 'em in the box. Leave your car in the garage. Don't open that can of Coke, it looks better sealed and full. Also, your girlfriends clothes should be left intact at all times. Wreckage pwns. One of the better figures--Get BB as well, you won't regret it.

    I'm not a fan of Wreckage for my own reasons, but I can deffinatly see the appeal to him. BB is great, my favorite TF:TM07 figure (my favorite deluxe car ever) even with the '08/9 version comming out you should open him.

    Wreckage is cool... I like him more than I thought I would.

    My bumblebee is the one some people are called "defective"... which is a load of rubbish, mine's in GREAT shape. And I'm quite the fan of him, too.

    Bumblebee is awesome. I thought he was a great figure. He's so easy and quick to transform. Just press the button to flip down his hood(even if it takes a good amount of pressure) and you'll be fine. Wreckage is pretty damn sweet too.

    Open, dammit, open!

    EDIT: I used my brother's account again by mistake. I'm going to kill him for not logging out. I'm older, I got senority (sp?), and I've been on this board for years!!!!

    I opened all of them and all I have to say is WOW. Barricade, BB and Wreckage are pure awesomeness. Scopronok is not bad, and he is a part of Blackout, either an engine or a fuel tank.
