    :lol  @ Sparkplug

    Man, I know they had to reinvent the brand to an extent with the Movie and all, but they have thrown us fans every bone they could.

    Amen, brudda.

    I'm digging Salvage. SBB is just a blah repaint to me. The whole yellow/black to black/yellow doesn't give me any incentive, and the new head makes him look ugly as sin.

    Oh, and Foster, I love that sig pic. I lawled.

    I do kinda like the whole "Sparkplug and Son" thing... but I think I'll still pass on him. I like Dropkick's paint apps better, anyways.

    I like Salvage, but I don´t know many car workshops that use a custum lowrider truck.

    Not to rag on SBB, but for a guy who can change his alt-mode instantly, is flipflopping your color-scheme really to best way to "hide?" :)

    I was thinking about buying SSBB just to do a headswap, but now I might just keep it on and buy the figure based on looks. I like the way he turned out, he looks better than the Premium. Gotta admit though, the first Concept Bumblebee may actually be the one with the best paint apps.

    I like the Salvage bio, but Stealth BB's is kinda silly. So, he needed Mikaela's help in finding a new form, or in this case, color scheme? Hmmm..I'm surprised she didn't pick pink. :lol

    I like Salvage's bio, and the toy is a sure buy since I missed Dropkick. Stealth Bee's bio seemed a little blah though. Still on the fence about whether or not to get him.

    SBB is sold! Salvage is gotta see it first. Great molds both of them though.

    The allspark baby blue once again makes an otherwise decent looking mold look bad (Salvage in this case). I like the look of Dropkick much more anyways.

    SBB...eh, the colorscheme is ok, and the bio was kinda funny..but the original release still looks best IMO.

    Pass on both, have Dropkick, who I like as a 'con, and original BB, who's head and colors I like better.

    Shame they still haven't really repainted the old Camaro yet though. I want the mold, but not another yellow BB. I think it would have been better to paint that red and call it cliffjumper but that's a different discussion altogether.

    Salvages bio is pure win! Verty original and I love the mold and colours! If Reprolabels releases a set of Sanford and son" replacement decals, then I'll nab 'em.

    Guess he really likes the new Camaro.

    I love Salvage's Bio, though the baby blue just has got to go, on both of these figures.
