    That's a pretty cool BB set, I never got the classics, if I saw this I'd def. snag one.

    i too like that bumblebee, and i have the original one...don't really need the other two toys though...and if i get that bumblebee, i think he'll be bumblejumper...

    but then again, i also hate walmart, so i'll probably buy this set on the second hand market, to avoid going into walmart...

    I think it is not going to be too hard to find this set... knowing 2 out of 3 are just repaints...

    btw, those online seller just can't transform bb the right way ? (see the back license plate/ hook)

    I still say they dropped the ball BIG TIME on that SDCC Nemesis Prime. Other stylistic choices aside....blue windows? Really now??

    Just call him Black Convoy or Dark Optimus Prime or something...hell, the dark blue makes him look more like Optimus standing in the shadows than any Scourge repaint...

    I MIGHT get the BB set, if I see it...which means I won't ever get it because I'll never see it in stores. Thanks, scalpers and ebay, for making my choice to import figures easy! Make Mine Henkei!

    Ooh, a black and teal Optimus Prime repaint. That's really... yawn... exciting. I can't... yawn... wait to... yawn... get my hands... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

    Bumblebee is quite nice. Pity I already have the original Classics version.

    Never liked black Prime repaints. Not a single one. They bore me to tears.
    The Bumblebee is pretty nice though.

    I have the original Classics Bee and have Nemi coming end of this week or begining of next.
    So I agree they need to be had in the Classics Line.

    Unfortunately, as a Classics completionist, I'll have to get him, Premium Bumblebee, and...ANIMATED BUMBLEBEE...if I want to get the Classics part of the Bumblebee trio.

    I'm loving that Classics Bumblebee repaint - it just looks more... beeish. The mould and paint job were already great on the old one, but this just brings it to a whole new level. I hope this one comes to Australia.

    Both easy passes for me. The Bumblebee just doesn't look right to me (at least not right enough to buy him again, plus figs I don't particularly want), and Nemesis Prime... w00t, another black redeco. He's vaguely pretty, but he's a non-character to me, and therefore pointless.

    I am definitely getting both of them. My only regret is getting some lame other toys in order to get the repainted Bumblebee. Who knows maybe I will keep the movie Bumblebee but Animated is definitely getting traded away.
