    Hey all. I am a huge Bumblebee fan for reasons I am not aware of. I fell in love with the little guy, and purchased about a million and a half repaints of that Camaro Mold. So naturally, when pics of HA Bumblez were leaked, my head exploded with joy. I've been prowling around scavenging for my precious Bee, and then I find it's price. 50 bucks? I like Bumblebee, but is he really worth 50 dollars of my money?

    $50 no, $35 is bad enough, Alts were only $20.

    Check Wal-mart, he's apparently $40 there. For $40 (or $30 + shipping from the states) I'd say he's worth it, but $50 is too steep.

    see, I thought he was 30 to start with. I cringed when I found out he's 10 bucks away from leader class.

    Why pay $50 for a $30 figure?

    He was $34.99 at TRU when I was there the other day.

    And has been the same price everywhere else I've seen him.

    So no, he's not worth $50.

    He's worth $30 US but I think $35 is steep. Whatever that translate into in Canadian.

    well, if 30-35usd translates to 50cdn, i guess he's worth it.

    I would get him. Best Bumblebee figure to date. If I had the option of paying $50 or not having him, I would pay the $50.

    $30-$35 U.S. = $33-$38 Can. Some people, including myself have found HA BB at Walmart for about $38 and some cents before taxes, so don't spend $50 if you don't have to. $50 is way over priced. It's definitely a GREAT figure, so I say GETHIM for sure, just don't spend $50 when you can easily find him cheaper.

    I'm not sure what retailer is charging 50 for him but my advice is to wait. I picked mine up from a KMart(the only damn thing they had) about a month or so ago when they were running a sale, paid a little over 20. With the release of Sideswipe, more BB's will be more abudant at different locations i.e: Target, TRU etc.

    Edit: Ahhh.....Canada.
    nvm

    I got my HA BB Misb for $15 usd. I got it from a fellow tfw'r at the junkion exchange. But I don't think HA BB is worth $30 let alone $50. But that's just me being the cheap person that iam.

    Didn't look that impressive to me when I saw it at a TRU a few weeks ago. Saved me some money I guess. Anyways I'd suggest not pay more than retail simply because it is a mass release.

    Worth $50? Yes. But you can get him for $40 almost everywhere I've seen except TRU.
