    Sorry if this is old news, but I just found this on Ebay. Like the title says, it's the deluxe Bumblebee toy we saw a while ago, but unpaintd (amazing how a paintjob can ruin a figure, he actually looks pretty good with the clear plastic). It also looks like he DOES have proper kneejoints, so that's another worry about the figure out of the way.

    Hmm... this one looks different than the one we saw last... I'm still leaning towards this one being a deluxe and the other being a scout/basic...

    Edit: On second thought... comparing it with the old pics... it's the same one. So, never mind my idiot rambling.

    On topic... yeah, July can't get here fast enough for me.

    Nope, the painted one just has shoddy (costcutting) paintapps. The altmode is EXACTLY the same as the first prototype leaked, and the robot mode is the same as the painted one.

    EDIT: Nevermind. :) 
    EDIT2: Wow, I've been getting a lot of frontpage mentions lately. o_O

    The fully painted one we saw a few weeks ago had solid yellow plastic with no transluscent blue plastic at all :( 

    I'm guessing Hasbro calculated that the number of yellow paint apps needed just to cover the car panel areas on those blue parts would be too much money per unit.


    I'm hoping Hasbro changed their minds and will go back to the translucent parts for the final production toy, since the movie toys were originally going to be released in October/November 2006, but I doubt it.

    Man, I would've thought that was a different figure if someone hadn't pointed out the sameness. O_O

    I assume the first intent was to have translucent windows, but someone changed their mind from unpainted to painted test shot (either for cost or because the plastic and paint didn't match up well). Either that, or they're trying it different ways in different test shots to determine the most preferable final result.

    I kinda like him. He's got a nice Datsun Fairlady Z design to him (G1 Bluestreak in other words). Not sure about his legs though, but he looks good - provided he keeps the clear windows. Maybe I've been spoiled by recent TFs and their clear windows, but painted windows look cheap. If other paint apps get dropped for them, fine, I can add them myself.

    I like it, saved the pictures. No bids because I don't collect prototypes, test shots etc. (too expensive and mostly ugly). Anyway, altough I will collect the final product, this doesn't just shout "BUMBLEBEE" to me. As for July, it will be here soon enough and there are other Transformers to collect between now and then.
