    Hey Peaugh,

    Thanks again for your (p)review of Prime deluxe Bumblebee.

    I bought the NYCC version. I prefer the cheddar cheese version...

    But I wanted to ask if there are any mold differences you may have noticed.


    Are the eye pieces the same? FE looks bigger or longer in the eye socket?


    I'll have to pick one up for the second blaster, but if I can use any other pieces to "upgrade" my NYCC version...

    Same mold. I've noticed no mold differences.

    Great review man!!! I've noticed that Bumblebee's transformation scheme is very similer to that of the RTS Special Ops Jazz's transformation though it does have some obvious differences. It's really nice that the figures are coming with thier own desplay pieces!

    Another great review - thanks! Though I'm gonna wait to see what the V2 mold & coloring looks like before I commit to this one. The yellow on this one isn't anywhere close to how he looks in the show, so hopefully that gets addressed with the V2 release... along with some door/"wings" mods.

    OK. Cool. Thanks for getting back to me...

    Maybee it looks different to me because it's a clearer transluscent blue then our NYCC versions?

    Nice figures. All n all...

    Hey, can you tell me how you actually go about splitting the chest pieces? I have even gone as far as wedging a penny between the bumper pieces to try to separate them, and there seems to be no clicking that hold's them in place. I feel like I have to apply an insane amount of force using a wedged penny. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong? I can see it only opens up on your figure on the outer sides of the bumper, but the pieces are determined to remain together.

    It's hard the first time, I used a flat tiny screwdriver to pry them open the first time. But they do click into place and it's much easier on subsequent transformations.

    Alright, so you gave me the confidence i needed to apply even more force. It's pretty impressive how much force these plastic figures can take. None the less, i think i managed to pry it open to about how far you have it. For those interested, it does take quite a bit of forcing.
