    Which is the best character and toy in your opinion? I'm running with classics BB for the fact he's the original character in my mind

    He's not the most classicaly BBish figure, but Concept Bumblee is the best toy IMO.

    I'm not so crazy about BB that I feel the need to get every figure made of him. However, I found Classics BB to be a great toy and personified his G1 character well, and then I found Movie CC BB to be an excellent deluxe- the kind of deluxe toy that makes you wonder how he can be at the same pricepoint as many others for all that you get, but it lacks the character of Classics or animated. Animated BB so far doesn't look like a needed purchase to me after having all the character I would want from Classics and the complexity and detail I wanted from movie BB. So I guess if I was going to go in order, I would say #1 is classics, #2 is CC BB, and #3 would be animated.

    It's hard to choose one as being better than the others. Classics Bumblebee did a phenomenal job of giving his G1 form a modern flair. Movie Bumblebee, both '70s and Concept, were good figures and look really good on a shelf (I personally keep '70s in vehicle mode and Concept in robot). Animated Bumblebee, from what I've seen of it, looks like a really fun toy.

    My TF:A BB is on his way, so I'll just take my picks for now:

    Best character: Animated hands down, followed by Movie.

    Best toy: Between classics BB and Movie BB, Movie classic Camaro 'Bee. Animated BB could change this.

    ANI Bumblebee looks as good as Classics, so I get you should get him for being... taller?

    And less fat?

    Character and toy wise, Movie Bumblebee by far. He is one of the best TF molds in history.

    If you're going to get the 08 BB mold, get the stealth version. It has far and away the best paint job of any of the 3 versions I have (battle damage, Cliffjumper, Stealth).

    For me thefirst place would go to Camaro Concept Movie BB, since the new mold and style are son impressive adn innovative.


    Second place for Classics BB, not so innovative or original transformation but a great homeage to the original character.


    Animated is not even worth to be a 5th place... it's just a bad joke for me, sorry for beeing so honest but I can't stand the goofy look of the figure.

    I don't have the Animated version yet, but Classics BB is just magic on wheels.
