    I need to wait till I get paid till I can afford a Bumblebee, and he'll probably be gone by then!

    i guess there is still Premium bee, but he will look out of place, and bbts sells the screen battles one, but the black is replaced by gray, not very attractive, i don't think...

    so the only other option is MA-22 Battle Mode Bumblebee, :(

    just get the screen battles version, the voyager prime 2 pack version (it's the original concept camaro bumblebee) or the premium version. you have lots of chances to get him still.

    He's still in the case with Landmine, Cliffjumper, and Stockade... You'll just have to go look for it instead of having it handed to you.

    any one know what's the difference between the MA-22 Battle Mode Bumblebee and the Premium Bumblebee will be? both are cheaper then screenbee, so i'm considering one of those instead, even if i don't like the head...

    Plight of the overrated Bumblebee. I actually saw a one of these in the toy aisle at Acme recently and had a bit of a laugh.

    The Screen Battles version has the old head.

    It's the Premium version that has the new head.

    err i should of said i didn't like the gray on the screen battles one, and i don't like the head on the premium, but after thinking it over i'll probably settle for the premium one, or the japanese one, though it doesn't come out til may. so i'll probably just preorder the premium one then.

    During Christmas I saw entire pegs filled with CCs BBs, but since I had the MA BB already passed on them.

    I totally agree, that's why I got mine. I just think the hype surrounding the character, in general, is a only due to Hasbro pushing him (probably also due to the hype surrounding the Camaro's rebirth) and not because the character is anything special. They toy itself isn't so amazing that it should be so hard to find.

    I'm sure you could find the one you want on Ebay or somewhere online. The price might be inflated, but you'll probably end up paying out the ass for the japanese release .

    I've never seen a CCBB in person. I sometimes wonder if they really exist.

    well the thing is, is that they are still selling the bumblebees, at bbts, just in a case, apparently they don't feel like breaking it apart though.

    i don't know what case number that one is though, because he said this one is the case number, .000J deluxe case.

    i'd try to find him in the stores, but, at this time i don't have the time to do so, which is why i normally buy them online.

    Speaking of case assortments- I don't follow them specifically unless I just happend to read about them here somewhere, but recently lots of places around here started restocking deluxes. Fredy Meyers, Target, TRU, WalMart... the only thing is, these assortments all pretty much contain Swindle, the drone jet guy who I know has a name like dreadwing or something, Payload, 74 BB, Scorponok, and final battle Jazz, and the other Decepticon whos name eludes me right now. Why are we getting this assortment? It really seems like all the stores are finally putting out all the cases they had sitting in the back during the dry spell late last year. I have seen maybe 3 CC BB's outside what I purchased, and quite a few target exclusice two backs. I have never seen Landmine or Cliffjumper.

    Have you tried the Junkion Exchange? I'm sure there's at least one MOSC 08 BB in there.
