    Well I opened it. It's the best TF since Alternators finished. Definitely.

    I was really impressed. It even had that "Alternators-almost-piss-you-off" transformation style.

    I second that thought. The twisting of the waist that didn't want to clear.

    I got one today.

    Can't quite decide if I love it, or am a bit disappointed.

    The premium deluxe was pretty damn nice. I really want to look at this one and just know that it's hands down the best BB ever. I don't know if it is.

    I was also hoping it would fit in nicely with my alt's and while it is the same scale- the car mode isn't quite as nice and the bot mode really feels like a totally different sized toy even though the height is similar.

    I just wish this thing was a tiny bit nicer. It's frustratingly close to amazing, but not quite there.

    It is however hands down far superior to that ultimate BB garbage from last time!

    I also just bought this figure. I'm glad I stopped dithering and grabbed it. Worth the money.

    On an interesting side-note, I was talking to a friend over at Takara-Tomy and during one of their meetings, one of the guys made a spit-ball idea that the HA line be brought out in Japan in 2010 , with some diecast content and better paint apps under the BT line. He was shot-down though:thumbdown . Pity, but it really isn't quite up to BT level.

    Edit: Or it might have been the Alternity line. Is the BT line even alive?

    linch, great pics! I gotta say, and I'm not one to usually whine about toy design choices, but I'm suprised that the seats on his arms don't hinge and fold in to make his arms more linear... maybe I'd have to see the toy in person, but it seems through pics that it would have been an easy thing to engineer.

    On a scale of one to ten how is this compaired to the ultimate bumblebee and the delux bumblebee, because this one looks better than both in my opinion.
