    Still not that keen on his design. I like what I've seen of him in the game, but for some reason I think his design looses something in toy form. Oh well... one less figure to get.

    I like. Seems like all the WFC figures are either BUFFED (see Prime and Megs) or tubby fat guys with guts (Bee and Soundwave).

    Jep, that's one potbellied awkward looking bot. Definately not one for the want list.
    Thanks for the pics though.

    Hmm. Definitely not as shiny gold as previous pictures showed. I blame Photoshop.

    A waist would do him some good. He is my least favorite of the three I've seen. I haven't seen Soundwave yet, but it sounds like I'm not going to like him much either :(  I must have Prime and Megatron!

    Well, I'll admit the design looks akward, but it does look nice to me. I'll probably pick him up since he's clearly got better head articulation than Classics Bumblebee (which is already on a full-range ball joint...unless you have the jetpack attached, which really limits that), he's the first "G1-esque" Bumblebee who comes with a gun of any kind, and from the looks of it he's got great articulation, so I'm not complaining.

    The yellow plastic looks like it has a pearlescent sheen to it.

    Not my favorite of the WfC toys, but I might get him. The alt-mode is absolutely perfect, while the bot-mode could use a little work. He looks like he's going to have a bit of a backpack, which some of it theoretically could have been used to bulk up the legs a little. Will probably wait to see what he looks like in-person before deciding to get him or not. A video review by Peaugh would be helpful too (at least I don't remember him doing one yet).

    Looks nice if not a bit awkward in design. I'll still get him, though, along with Prime.

    Every WFC toy i've seen so far reminds me that i really prefer TFs with less overtly 'Alien' alt modes.

    He looks like a little round ball of fun. I like.

    I like it- it actually looks a lot better than the stock photos lead me to believe. Maybe its the angle- but I like this one, and I might pick him up. Maybe.

    WOW! That alt mode is the sweetest thing I've ever seen! And I also love the bot mode. Cute proportions, the way bumblebee should be. Not that over-heroicized big crotched Bay bullshit!

    I'm SO going to buy this and hug it and squeeze it and it shall be mine!

    Cool, that design reminds me of a bumble bee, especially in robot mode, when you look at his arms. really creative!
