    One has an Autobot insignia on the hood, the other dose not. I don't think it has been pointed out yet, sorry if it has.

    Actually there are three different versions. I have one when it first came out at TRU with no symbols on the car at all. I saw at Target yesterday, one with the symbol on the hood and another one with the symbol on the roof. The one with the symbol on the roof looks like it was done to correct the ones without any symbol. I believe the symbol wasn't even black, but grey. The one with it on the hood looks like the last revision.

    There ARE three versions of BB out there, but there's only one variant.

    The "Commander Series" BB (Commander Series 2 of 4) has the battle mask head on the bot mode. It has the variant; one without a symbol and one with the black symbol on the hood.

    The "Speed Series" BB (Speed Series 2 of 4) has the standard head on the bot mode and has the grey symbol on the roof. It's also the 2009 version of the car, if I recall correctly.

    From what I can tell the variation without the autobot symbol was released in the first wave (prime, megs, BB, Ratchet) the variation with symbol is included with the prime, megs, sideways, longhaul, ironhide... The only time I've ever seen the one without a symbol is when the store has the initial 4 RPMS.

    One has an insignia one doesnt
    everything else is just packaging errors

    Please read my post above. There is a variant in the COMMANDER series. There are no packaging errors.

    Here is the COMMANDER SERIES Bumblebee and its variant, one with a BLACK SYMBOL ON THE HOOD and one with NO SYMBOL.

    Here is the SPEED SERIES Bumblebee with a GREY SYMBOL ON THE ROOF.

    Thanks for the pics to clarify.:thumbs2:  I didn't even know there was a commander and speed series BB. I should check the packaging more carefully.
