    Well, there seems to be a trend about what designs you prefer. Might as well complete it, since I'm curious.

    Which Bumblebee design is better, that of TF1 and 2, or that of TF3? Personally, I like the bulkier look. It also gives him more of an abdomen area, instead of what appears to be a chest on a crotch.

    Therefore, TF3.

    TF3. But again, the differences are so insignificant. I remember reading that they said that they were trying to make him look "older," but I don't see how random chest bits make him look older.

    2010/Concept Camaro ftw. The 3rd one sucked. The stripe placement is ugly and that spoiler looks ridiculous.

    It was a 1977 Camaro

    I think they're on about the Beetle in the car lot.

    This topic was mainly about the robot mode, but I'd go for TF3 on the car too. I liked the spoiler, the bulkier hood, and the spread out, sharper stripes.

    The DOTM design, without a doubt. I think the changing placement of the racing stripes and adding a spoiler to the back looked killer.

    DOTM. I really liked how you could see the shape of his arm cannon in his forearm when he wasn't using it. Didn't just come out of nowhere anymore. Oh, and I thought the alt mode looked sick.

    TF3 Bumblebee. I like how he got a bit more pudgy, I guess as an homage to G1.

    "More mature" was the phrase Bay used, and if you compare the differences between the designs, Bumblebee's appearance does become "more mature". At least physically.

    [​IMG] vs. [​IMG]

    For all intended purposes, he's 'grown up'. His neck area is beefier, his entire chest area is different and raised up (like his pecs become more muscular), his arms are more tight and shoulders are also bigger. It's like comparing a 16 year old kid who still has some baby fat on him to a svelte 19 year old who just spent the summer working on a construction site.

    TF3 as far as the robot mode goes but TF2's vehicle mode was better. his dotm vehicle mode would've worked damn well as sunstreaker.

    TF1 (1977/2007 Camaro). He looked more of an underdog and scout, which suited his character better. It's one thing to give the human's guardian a lot of screentime, but to make him into a badass (he took out Ravage, Laserbeak and Soundwave) is kind of pushing it IMO...

    Man all I can think of is how bad for your shoulders that kind of hunching is :p 


    Honestly I'm not fussed on each design, the differences are subtle but hardly anything worth getting worked up over.

    Well, maybe "pudgy" was a wrong word to use; "beefier" is a more fitting term. He's definitely a bit chunkier than his previous designs, but not necessarily in the sense of being "fatter", just bigger and, like you said, more "muscly".

    Ah, now I see the differences between the TF2 and TF3 vision. From this I would go for his TF3 counterpart.
