    There is a sale for deluxe figures at Zellers tomorrow and I'm thinking about buying a Sideways to repaint like the movie and I'm thinking about Bumblebee for a moment. I have the old bumblebee from the first movie, but I didn't like the head. i like the head on the ROTF Bumblebee, but he only had one arm, other arm is blaster only. Should I just stick with the one I have or buy the ROTF one?

    I think the ROTF one looks loads better. The cannon arm seems like it would bug you at first but I quite like it.

    First movie, I've heard the ROTF versions don't peg together very well because of the frequent mold use

    Bingo. I bought ROTF Bumblebee last week, and it takes FOREVER to peg into place and even then the panels don't like up perfectly. It's a whole different experience from transforming my TF1 Cliffjumper. The Cannon arm is also quite annoying.

    Keep the one you got. The new head just isn't worth the mess the new one is unless you parts swap.

    I like the first film's version better so I'd stick with that if I were in your shoes.

    Honestly? Don't get the new one, sell your old one, and get Human Alliance BB.

    If you're looking for a deluxe though, get Cannon BB. He's different enough to warrant a buy.

    I bought ROTF Cannon Bumblebee and put his arms and head on my TF2007 Bumblebee. Most accurate-to-screen look that I can find.

    That's a tough one. I like everything about Preview BB, but the eyes are the wrog colours, and that cannon arm is not everyone's thing. The old BB is cool, but the head looks pretty bland compared to the new one's. Plus the vehicle mode isn't as pimp.

    I'd say pick up preview if you find him.

    Stick with the one from the original movie. That mold's been used so many times that it must be breaking down by now and I can't imagine the RotF version is going to be as sturdy as the original.
