    FAB 08 Bumblebee

    Quite the nice FAB - the design style is a combo of FAB Jazz's legs, chest & 'automorph' head and Ironhide's arms. A very good looking toy for it's class.

    The one I have is a true sample proto, hence the sticker, 'not for sale' and face discolouration. Production pieces won't have any of that.

    Split his legs and push them up, as in car mode they are extended in length. Quite the opposite move as generally with TFs it's the opposite - in vehicle mode the legs would be compacted and for bot mode they'd have to be pulled & extended.

    So here's the intermediate look

    Then like FAB Jazz, turn the front of the car down for it to become his chest and his head springs up automatically as well as with Bumblebee, the grill splits and turns downwards.

    God I love those FAB figures. When you don't have the time to mess around with the full size figures, FABs are the ticket.

    Ahh. I like the fact of being able to Transform a figure quick but I prefer the Deluxes though the 08 BB is looking good for a FAB.

    Lol. I love how the FABs destroy any of the deluxe cars from Armada and Energon.

    It's like, "We tried to make toys as crappy as those early Unicron trillogy cars, but we got too much awesome in the design. Sorry, kids."

    Suprisingly cool. I love FAB's (I have four) and I gotta say he looks like one of the better designed.

    I also like how he's got a more movie-accurate chest than ultimate BB.

    I'll probably just display the FAB in their vehicle modes at the feet of their deluxe/voyager versions...

    BB does look nice. Still not going to get any of the FABs though. Thanks for the pics!
