    Hi. There are so many Bumblebee variants out there, I am a bit confused. First up, which is the best to get - if I get one only (concept version)?

    Second, what is 'Allspark Power'? What does this mean?

    Third, does the Stealth BB have the Automorph features? And, does Cliffjumper?

    Thanks.

    i like the original concept camaro release myself, with the black. The premium version doesn't look very good IMO

    I'd go with the regular concept version.
    That has the normal head.
    Go with premium version if you want battle mask head instead.

    "allspark power" is just a subtitle added to packaging to refresh the last few months of the line.
    Other tf lines have done the same.

    Stealth bb & cliffjumper have the same automorph gimmicks as the concept bb.
    Cliffjumper has normal head, bb has the battle mask head.

    Thanks guys. So, to make sure I have this right...

    Allspark just means rereleased or 'buy now, the line is dying'.

    Bumblebee (Concept Camaro Allspark Power) and Bumblebee (Concept Camaro Evolutions of a Hero) are Target exclusives. Not sure what the big deal is on these, as they seem very similar to other versions out.

    Bumblebee (Concept Camaro Premium Edition)(Allspark) - Battle mask, not Automorph.

    Bumblebee (Concept Camaro) - Standard head, Automorph.

    Bumblebee (Concept Camero Stealth) - Black paint job, battle mask, Automorph.

    Cliffjumper - Red paint job, standard head, Automorph.

    Is that right?
    Thanks.

    the allspark version had bright light blue paint in different areas. its ugly

    they all have automorph, its part of the mold, some versions just don't advertise it, but it's there.

    So, if I wanted a battle mask (and not the head that looks like a piece of chewing gum) and automorph, Stealth version is for me?

    Thanks.

    Not necessarily. There's a normal colour version of the concept BB that comes with the battle mask as well, that's not Allspark Power or Premium. It's the standard BB colours that the original concept BB was released in, just with the head swapped out for the battle mask.

    CORRECTION

    It is actually the Premium series BB that has the standard colours and battle mask. Although, judging from the following picture, the bot parts are more grey than black.

    Premium BB
