    I opened up my movie premium Bumblebee last night. To my dismay, the legs keep popping off the ball joint. Has anyone else run into this problem? Is this a problem with all the deluxe class Bumblebee molds? Just wondering.

    I've never had that problem with any of my Concept BBs or Cliffy. Are you able to exchange it? If not, try a little clear nail polish inside the ball joint to tighten the fit. But, be careful not to get any of the nail polish on the paint apps. It'll take them right off!

    Everyone I've spoken to who has bought the premium version of BB has had that problem.

    Also, I have not seen one in the package who's paint was not applied by a left handed monkey with the shakes.

    Thanks! I'm going to see if I can exchange it first. Hopefully Target has a couple more in the stock room.

    So it's a Premoum Bumblebee only issue? Yes the paint job could be better. Not only are the parts a different yellow, but I saw some black lines/smudges on the rear fender. Maybe I'll just return him if this is a constant problem.

    Mine has the issue.

    Off topic I was saddened by his shrunken head as well. The head is really small IMO. Blast that Mindwipe and his voodoo

    I hadn't really notice but you're right the head is a tad on the small side. Overall the figure would have looked better if they kept it yellow and black and not grey.
