    08 BB is pretty nice.

    Arcee's head looks quite odd...

    Arcee gives me a "what if Blackarachnia was a motorcycle" vibe.

    Not too impressed with jet drone.

    New Camaro Bumblebee is pure love!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Excellent finds! Arcee needs more white on her, I think.

    08 Bumblebee looks a lot better than the original. He looks mistransformed though - look at his chest, there are two gaps that make it look like the sides of his chest can rotate to make it a lot more movie accurate.

    Awesome. New Camero BB and Arcee will be mine. I'm really glad that BB has his weapon arm, but I was also hoping that he would have his battle mask. Oh well. I'll still definetly get him.

    One of each please!

    The 'BEE is especially saucy, while the only thing I don't like about the drone jet are the purple sections. Nice!

    Arcee's another Nice Bike Lousy Robot. But don't tell her that.

    BB is awesome...as for Arcee I love the design except for the head (I don't know what to make of it)

    I'd get Arcee for the detail in bike mode. The robot mode kinda has a "I fell into some acid but got out real quick" look to it.

    Arcee looks odd. Nice bike mode, but she looks like she's caught some sort of metal eating disease in robot mode. Bumblebee is somewhat awesome.

    It's great, Arcee is basically the upgraded version from the Energon version, pretty much the same transformation with movie aesthetics

    Arcee looks... average. Dreadwind does look better in these shots, though. And 08 Bumblebee is LOVE.

    Is Arcee damned to have some sort of bow for the rest of her toy incarnations?

    Yeah, what's with that? BB's battle mask is kinda cool. Hope it comes as a packin for this fig.

    Arcee - Meh. Nice detailing on the motorcycle mode (why is Arcee now relegated to motorcycle? Is that a step down from convertible or what?), but overall... meh. It's pretty much a near-identical transformation from the Energon one from what I can tell... except the front wheel splits apart in an even more implausible fashion. I also get the Blacharachnia vibe from this figure though.

    Jet Drone Guy - Bleah. This thing really looks like a Happywell Armada Thrust KO reject (though the grey might have something to do with that). Short legs, simplistic forms, awkward arms with no manipulators... I'd forgive the camera head if the rest of the figure was cool, but no dice.

    New Camero Bumblebee - This thing is all love. I too would have liked to see a "battlemask" version of Bumblebee (I don't think ANY of the figures have one), but this kicks the tail of the Old Camaro deluxe. Wow. I mean, just... Wow.

    The kitbash conversions are already playing out in my head. :)

    This is the Bumblebee I'll be picking up.

    Not really interested in Arcee or the drone, though her bike mode is nice, not nice enough to buy however.

    Bumblebee looks pretty awesome, Arcee is alright, but that drone is god damn hideous.

    The transparent windows on BB make the vehicle mode look more realistic, but I'm disappointed that they weren't able to match the shades of yellow better. Hopefully that will be changed for the final product.

    The jet drone has a weak robot mode, but the MiG-29 mode is fantastic with a great color scheme, so that is a must buy for me.

    Arcee definitely looks...interesting. Dreadwing's still an eyesore, but new Bumblebee is HOTNESS! :D
