    I would have liked it to be someone else, but you can't blame hasbro for wanting to make money.

    I'm guessing fingers so he can have both hands, unlike the HA version.

    my post from allspark:

    Wow. And now I kind of feel stupid for getting HA BB. Not really, of course, that thing is still awesome for the driver gimmick alone. But damn, this looks like a nice BB. All the bot mode kibble finally looks right, rather than half-assed (see the deluxe's forearm panels or HA's shins). Are those fingers in the cannons that so slide out, so as to give him both hands? Does the mask slide back, a la HA BB? Well, it looks like he still has the same sort of back kibble as HA BB, and maybe an immobile left wrist as well. Overall, though, this looks like a winner, even if it is a bit surprising. Goes even further than HA to make the Ultimate version obsolete.

    I really don't care for movie Bumblebee, or Bumblebee in general, but hot damn.

    I wonder what his voice chip will be.

    Interesting. Certainly looks far, far better than any of the existing movie BB toys. Looks to have plenty of detail and articulation, be interesting to see if the mask and weapon arm are moving parts, or add-on pieces.

    Idiocy; it's not like there's the Supreme Bumblebee, the Human Alliance one and any number of other options for a movie Bumblebee figure. Now we're getting another gigantic one, evidently. It's nice that they've nailed down the movie look tighter than they have before (if that's your thing) but I'm definitely passing on this one.

    I think the release of this figure will finally dash the hopes of those who believe a Leader-class Blackout or Grindor is in the works. The fact that HasTak chose the 100th version of movie Bumblebee over Blackout/Grindor shows how uninterested those parties are in creating a larger version for that character.

    I was hoping for a Leader Class Ironhide, but I love Bumblebee, so this makes me happy. Another 'Bee for my (already large) BB collection.

    Another Bee? Gesh. The battle mask better be movable, especially since it is on Ultimate and HA Bee. I'm not sure if I will get this one though. Maybe.

    Oh look, another Bumblebee to warm the shelves next to the HA version.:lol 


    Yeah, I don't see this guy being nearly as popular as Starscream will be, such a shame.

    Wow, Hasbro. HA BB wasn't enough? You had to make another BB toy about 5 bucks higher in price?

    And do you honestly think parents are going to pick this monster over a deluxe toy, or the HA version?

    Why not make someone who hasn't had a good toy yet, like The Fallen? Because as of right now, it's pretty easy for Leader Prime to take his face. Or why not use that money to make some more Deluxes or some Scouts? They're the best parts of the ROTF toyline right now IMO.

    Looks great and I'm sure the kids will love it, but from a (or "this") collector's POV this is a complete waste of a leader class mold. Damn shame.
