    Hmmm seems like an intersting idea. Hopefully he gets intigrated into season 4 *hopes hopes hopes*. It would explain all the underwater stuff in the Japanese opening (outside of the Omega Supreme adventures). That "metallic yellow" always comes across so green in pictures. How yellow is it?

    gold really?

    I just don't like the gold color. I mean everyone knows Bumblebee is yellow.

    Was on the fence about this one. I really like the scale to Sentinel Prime. The gimmick of being able to transform in one piece added to a preorder (steep price, but I like goooold, Mr. Powers...). I'll hope for a Blackout and Thundercracker Voyager US release, but can live without. Thanks for the Goldbug, TakTom! Great review as usual, Peaugh but...

    Speaking as a MISB collector in regards to your Gold Lucky Draw Deluxe Prime surprise:

    Hmm, cute and neat little BB there...:D 
    Will try and find him since he's (apparently) the last of the TF:animated moulds.
    Thanks, Peaugh! :D

    !

    It has shoulder joints, so he can rotate his whole arm around 360 degrees in a forward or backward motion. His arms can also move outwards, leaving Bumblebee in a 'T' shape stance.

    The joints at the top of the thighs allow limited movement of the legs forward. His legs can be moved 90 degrees outwards/sideways from the hip, so you can make him star-jump!

    The knee joint allows the lower legs to be moved through 90 degrees backwards.

    He can swivel 360 degrees at the waist.

    He is reasonably articulated.

    A good figure that would have been better in yellow paint!

    Goldbug was gold. This is a remake of Bumblebee. Also it's more very shiny yellow than gold.

    I hope for a Hasbro release. Looks like it'll be a good toy.

    Ben, thank you (seriously) for saving a waste of $40 he is in my cart at BBTS right now, and I decided to watch this first. boy am I glad I did.

    If he was yellow, I'd still do it, but gold will clash badly with my American figures, and the pack does nothing for me, although I know why they did it.

    Great review as always, I like it, but the gold is horrible, and he looks like an oversize activator

    I wouldn't have gotten him now, but I have store credit from toys I had to cancel, thanks for showing this and helping me not waste my credit

    Do those guns come off too? Those look like they'd make kick ass shotgun-like weapons for Bee...

    Another great review. Just looking at both i do like the way the feet look on the hydro dive BB when displayed next to the old one.

    More fun than I thought. I like that the jetpack can stay attached for transformation.
