    A nice, short and sweet review! That stand is certainly unusual, as it was clearly meant to be a bonus feature but I think would have turned out to be that much better if they had printed Bumblebee's name one it. That way, at least for these first edition releases, each figure could have come with their own individualized stand; would have made displaying them that much more attractive. Ah well, I suppose one could always remove the one from the box with Bee's name on it and simply glue it to the front of the stand.

    Overall though, Bee doesn't look too shabby. I'm certainly tempted to go get him, but seeing as Black Friday is right around the corner it might be worth it to wait till then, brave the crowds and see what deals are to be had for him.

    Bee isn't bad looking at all, but I'm reserving judgment for best looking figure until I see how Ratchet turns out; I have a sneaking suspicion the doc bot is going to rock everyone's socks :thumbs2:

    I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who tripped over that description too!

    "Bio:
    He's a hot muscle car, and also the Autobot who's been on Earth the longest. So he knows humans best, which helps explains why he's so serious about looking after Raf. Bumblebee's voicebox was damaged on Cybertron, so he "talks" in bleeps and blurts. He may make mistakes, but he's eager to please Optimus Prime. "

    Really now, really? We couldn't come up with something a little better than that?

    This. I hated Animated Bumblebee. I'd take Radio-bee or R2B2 over him any day.

    Personally if I had to choose I lean more towards Animated Bumblebee. The sad thing about PRIME Bumblebee is that he is either more of the same that the movie verse gave us in terms of character or he is everything people hated about the Minicons in Armada/Micron Legends's TV run.

    ........ that and anyone linked with Raf can't be THAT cool.....

    Well give the poor guy a chance! I mean sure he's not the most developed character like Arcee,Bulkhead and Starscream are,but he still has potiental to be awsome! All he needs is a time to shine! And we are going to see a bit of his backstory about how he lost his voice and all in Season 2!
