    I've noticed a couple of g1 minibots have recently been remade as scouts,Huffer and Windcharger off the top of my head,doubtless lots more. Bumble,tiny deluxe as he is,still towers over scouts,and kind of loses his aesthetic. Bit of a shame really,as he'd be perfect as a scout,especially if someone 3rd party made a bug. I like the fact that Powerglide and Seaspray came back as an Ultra and Voyager,better suits their alt modes.

    Although hoping for anything like correct scale in Transformers is a complete non-starter, I do agree that it would be nice to see a scout sized Bumblebee. I mean, he's filled every other class size at some point!

    WHAT??

    To have him released as a Scout Class figure means that I'll literally have to re-purchase him again.

    This had better not happen. Can't see myself owning so many copies of BB. :eek:

    Absolutely not, the deluxe holds up fantastic with even the modern stuff coming out now. Instead of remolding Bumblebee, how about we get a release, domestic or otherwise, of that blue Bumblebee that came out a while back

    I prefer all my Mini-Bots Deluxe Class. The new Warpath made that descision for me as he looks so completely awesome I wouldn't want anything less.. and considering his Mini-Bot status, nothing more. What would be nice would be if some of the larger characters being released as Deluxes were actually Voyagers (insert beating dead horse gif)

    *Bring on Deluxe Class G1 Wheelie!

    The BB Classics mold and its repeats is very very cute. Why would you be against something so adorable? :)

    LEADER CLASS Cosmos, yes? Better: MP Cosmos.

    I want him to be the size of the mother ship from Close Encounters.

    :lol  They're all deluxe and RTS and classics are the same mould anyway.

    I'd prefer scout class.

    I am pretty satisfied with the way BB is but a new mold scout Goldbug would be pretty sweet. I would also be down for a new deluxe IDW Camaro BB. I think thats probably the only new Bumblebee I would buy.

    I just don't think it's reasonable to expect everything that was a minibot before will be a minibot forever. I mean heck, Powerglide is an Ultra, and Seaspray is a Voyager.

    I'm pretty sure the Igear figs are Legends sized not Scout.

    On topic. I would love to see Gears, Beachcomber , Outback, Swerve, Tailgate, BB and CJ as scouts. Brawn would make an awesome scount but he would need some hefty bulk to him.

    I like that Powerglide and Seaspray went up in size but the rest would look neat as scouts to be the 2k versions of minibots.

    I actually think that Wincharger should have been a deluxe. And that Beachcomber, Cosmos, Huffer, Brawn, and Gears will be such as well. The whole "minibots should stay mini" idea makes less sense than the idea of me eating my own head.

    Same here. I like the added variation in sizes. And while I don't mind Windcharger being a scout, I would've been just as happy if he was a Deluxe
