    That seems to be a fair price. I hope they remain in that range once I get a few bills out of the way. I am a bit suprised that CHMS hasn't done this figure.

    He's a cool little repaint. I'm thinking of ordering an RTS BB to repaint as this little con. It's a fun mold to play around with.

    Anyone know exactly how many repaints/redcos of this mold there have been? I'm thinking a collection of BB's in a rainbow of colors (both 'bot & 'con) would be pretty sweet...

    He was my favorite right from the start. The original brochure for that year had him as a mystery character and "a new bid for Decepticon leader." And then he turned out to be a GoBot with tribal tattoos. I love literally everything about that.

    Mysterious Blue Classics Bumblebee Video Review Online

    Several appeared on ebay and taobao. At Botcon Hasbro denied any knowledge of it but that doesn't rule out Takara. If it was Takara, they ended up never producing them en-mass. It's interesting because his engine grill is chrome silver.
