    G1 style but with BB as a classic Camaro. And he has door "wings". I would definately be all over that.

    I don't think they will do it now, between the Classics re-re-release in RTS and the new movie forthcoming.

    If we're talking about this design, I'm not a big fan of it.

    On the other hand, if they want to go for it, Bumblebee is about as safe a bet as they come. Money in the bank, as they say.

    I'm more of the school that says Bumblebee's personality doesn't work with flashy cars, but I don't really have any strong objection to toys that are going to sell.

    I'd have to say no. We already have plenty of movie-verse BBs, and Prime BB will be coming, and they're all almost the same thing.

    This is a neat design. If IDW actually STICKS with it for a few years, I wouldn't be averse to an "Autobot Leader Bumblebee." However I don't think it's needed in the near future. On the whole I like a shrimpier Bumblebee with the other Autobots.

    ^ Agreed. If IDW remembers that Goldbug already exists in their continuity as a separate Autobot, then B won't happen. As for A...I think that would alienate their main audience quite a bit. They are selling to twenty-somethings who aren't sold on the movie or Prime 'verses.

    I never cared much for Bumblebee, but door wings are a big weakness of mine. A new toy might give me an excuse to like him.

    Door wings will loosen up the ol' wallet any day of the week...
    It almost seems as tho someone could do this figure using a BB head, and one of the classics figures...maybe some paint and a little sculptey...

    Hmmmm...

    I honestly don't care for the designs from IDW's TF ongoing. It's like a weird fusion of G1 and movie, but not in a good way. As if they wanted to make movie comics, but didn't want to piss off Geewuners. Just not a fan.

    And I'm perfectly happy with Bumblebee as a Peugeot 206. Small yet sporty car, fits him great.
