    I did post this in the main thread but it seemed to get totally overlooked. I am convinced that this figure is a very clever photoshop. For one, the visible hand is completely identical to that of HA Bumblebee, as does the chest seem to be. Secondly, according to my friend who owns Ulti-Bee said the wings are dead on, as well as the general body, mixed with HA parts.

    Finally, what I consider the nail in the coffin is I have e-mail confirmation from a contact at Hasbro, who stated that they have had no information whatsoever about a leader-class Bumblebee figure.

    I realise that this doesn't really offer any significant proof but my news credits regarding information I previously was given regarding Universe figures. I know that this isn't going to satisfy everyone. But I say if you look closely at this figure, and the fact that we've *never* heard anything from Hasbro about this figure before, that it's a very clever hoax - mixing parts of HA and Ultimate Bee

    Oh, don't start this.

    I believe S250 has never served us wrong. Also, I believe it has been rumored for a long time. And why wouldn't they do it? Hello $$$. BB sells.

    Also, this would probably go in the toy discussion.

    Seems to me in your post, that all you really cared about is "It's fake." Maybe if you did some more extensive 'research' and thought "It may be real" you wouldn't have made such an accusation.

    First off, look at the "black" outlining Bumblebee. Wouldn't you say that's the same color as the back packaging for ROTF Leaders?

    Also, you can slightly see through the middle of his grill; speakers?

    S250 even said himself:

    Don't believe he said that? Look it up on page 68.

    From what I hear, S250 is a pretty reliable source.

    Now, for the final piece of evidence, courteous of Ra88. Click on the black bar at the top of the picture to view it in full size.

    ^Seems pretty convincing to me.

    As for that e-mail confirmation of yours, do you really think that Hasbro would really tell a random person through e-mail what their future plans are?

    Ya' ever think that maybe they're incorporating the best parts of each Bumblebee mold into one Bee?

    This has been rumored for quite a while.

    Plus, Bumblebee is a huge money maker for Hasbro, so why not?

    I understand that this topic has been beaten to death, but just wanted to convince one person with all the evidence I could remember.


    All in all, it could happen. It probably will.

    We'll all find out sooner or later.

    Because there is no reason that multiple toys trying to replicate the same CGI model should ever have parts that look the same.

    I can believe that there is going to be a Leader BB. There is no reason why it would be a hoax. Hasbro likes money, and any excuse to make a new BB is great for them. Also, Hasbro might be trying to cover this up, it IS a toy coming out next year after all.

    I guess I'm under a bridge because I hear a troll.

    S250's extensive amount of news credits speak for themselves.

    Eh, remember what happened last time they made a huge toy of the yellow kid appeal character? We had Supreme Cheetors flooding K-Mart forever. Of course that toy sucked anyway.
