    I think the name you're looking for is Her-bee, it doesn't necessarily have to be bug bite.

    He's Bumblebee's distant German cousin Herr Bee. I saw this and chuckled nostalgically to myself when it popped up a minute ago on FB. Well-done iGear.

    Totally...and another fan on their facebook account had an awesome cartoon homage idea as well. They should redeco their eventual version of Beachcomber in Speed Buggy colors.

    ...playing Devil's advocate here.. Maybe black Huffer could be looked at as a reverse homage to movie Armorhide.

    At the risk of staring something many, if not all, of you know already. I believe Bob Budiansky said he was directly referencing Herbie when he come with Bumblebee.

    Walt Disney had a couple of old movies based on Herbie.

    I hope they make another run of not-huffer I'd bet they'd sell.

    They are cool, but taking on and playing with Has/Tak is one thing, but the evil that is Disney, that's something else!!!

    Still would rather have Pipes than the Black Ranger.

    I was thinking the same thing...minus the evil part. Part of me hopes Disney catches wind and crushes them.

    But part of me doesn't. :)
