    au contraire. I think it's just spiffy.

    He does look a little evil though, and Hasbro always put these things in an awkward pose. But he's got the battlemask, the converting arm cannon, and the axe, and it's an all new mold. Pretty good for a deluxe.

    Well, I won't delve into the multiple reasons why I don't think we need another movie BB much less a new mold, but this one really doesn't do it for me. Specific gripes being the part of the hood that covers his head in alt mode just sticking up in robot mode, the chest not folding down in the middle, and the hatch part in alt mode doesn't look very flush.

    Again, this is coming from an avid anti-BB fan, so take it with a grain of salt.

    I want to call it a mistake because I'm sick of him and feel like this figure is a waste of new tooling costs, but it'll sell well, so Hasbro will see it as a success and make more.

    i think he looks better than most of the available deluxes..my real complaint is the piece right behind the head that stands straight up, i hope that can fold down or back somewhere

    To me this BB has the correct arm panels, two hands a blaster and an axe. Honestly its cool and will purchase. The car mode also has a slightly larger hood scoop it seems. Just that back panel and hopefully the chest bits can rotate

    It would be poor if the back panel didn't fold flat.

    Isn't the axe something from the Videogame or is it a new weapon for the sequel movie too ?

    Shame they didn't paint the toy in that metallic paint used on the premium.

    He's better than just about all the other deluxe Bee's. I'm still gonna stick to the Premium Deluxe because I like the paint apps on the vehicle mode though.

    Agreed. Dig the new axe, and love how the arm cannon is integrated into the arm, yet does not kill the hand.

    I'm just happy at how he got many features from his bigger molds... yet is still a Deluxe, I bet the only reason he lacks the shoulder cannons is so he won't steal the new giant Bee's thunder.

    I'm interested to see what he looks like properly transformed. Right now he looks terrible, because apparently Hasbro's PR staff can't transform their characters for squat.

    Personally, I'd say it's the best Deluxe version of movie bumblebee so far. I also think that deluxe Ironhide is looking almost better than the voyager. Drift is actually looking pretty good as well.

    Honestly, this might be the first new Deluxe Bumblebee that I've bought since the first movie line.
