    Movie Bumbles has an ugly head to begin with imo, but screw up the proportions and it's even worse haha. Looks somewhat ok with the battle mask though I suppose.

    Valkysas, you never know, might be pumped out just 'cos the movie is so popular.

    That looks absolutely nothing like Bumblebee from the movie. Well, maybe a relative of some kind. The proportions are totally off in a lot of places. The designer, whoever he is, should either get his/her glasses examined and look again, or just quit designing anything.

    Not for me. Maybe they'll do a better job with the Prime head. I'd still pass, but at least I won't have an awful feeling in my mouth after looking at it.

    Damn! That's one ugly piece of work. I can't believe they actually think that it looks just like Bumblebee. It looks nothing like him.

    BumbleBee looks like that, what happened to an AT-ST in Star Wars Ep.6, which got smashed on both sides of the head with tree barks, by the Ewoks. Poor guy..
