    Probably a factory leak, similar to how numerous Wave 1 figures from TLK was leaked.

    Hey not bad. The proportions seem to work a bit better than on the TLK one.

    Looks good! Even if it's just a reshelling of the TLK figure.

    Also, tiny pics of Stinger, Crowbar and Ratchet in the cross sell.

    I think we can expect more leaks of Studio Series figures this week. It's the leakers' last chance before NYTF and Wonder Festival Winter next weekend.

    Yeah, he's far better than the first one so this gets a pass from me. I'll also give the remolding a pass here since it's the same character.

    I knew those figures would be found before they were even officially revealed :lol 

    Hasbro waited way too long to show these off...

    Looks awesome, and he's a retool of the excellent TLK deluxe. I'll be getting it for sure.

    The classic Camaro chest works really well on the TLK Bumblebee mold. It never occurred to me that they might remold it using that figure as a base, but it looks really nice. I just wish they’d use grey plastic for his thighs instead of the black.

    As someone who was not into the movies at the time of this form's first release (I hated them at that time), I find this figure a great way to get a design I never had.

    Basing it on tlk bumblebee is actually a great idea and it actually looks good.

    But Iam surprised this is not the Volkswagen form.

    I’ve been itching to get the 2007 classic Camaro Bumblebee as of late and now I’m glad I didn’t. This doesn’t look half bad and at least they have the cannon on the right arm this time, which is another plus. Just hopefully, this figure rectifies the problems with the TLK deluxe.

    Bumblebee looks pretty good, and the figure looks good despite it's only a reshell of the TLK mold.

    However, I'm a little bit skeptical. The TLK wave 3 mold isn't all that great, and it worries me a little bit if this figure would suffer for the same issues that plagued the TLK version of the mold.

    From what that I can see, it seems like Crowbar, Stinger and Ratchet could possibly be in the same wave with Bumblebee.

    That looks really cool, the remolding works well, and this just gets me even more excited for this line.

    Oh, nice. I was contemplating getting that 3-pack with the classic Camaro BB, but then I thought "wait, they might do a new one for the BB movie"

    I'm glad my instincts were right!

    Nice! the classic Camaro Bee was the figure that started my collection, so it's awesome to get an update of it. I keep my old one in car mode because one of the doors broke off.

    1. Looks great
    2. Why the frack is this labeled as a TF6 figure?
    3. Who the frack is TF6 blue light?
    4. Does this call into question weather or not the proported masterpiece VW bee is actually the classic Camaro version?
