    Hey all,

    I just thought I would share this with yall,but I think I found the definite way Hasbro and Takara could get around VW's stupid rule and finally give us our nearly perfect Bumblebee Masterpiece.I give yall this.

    1/24 Subaru 360 Young SS


    I would so love for them to release Bee in this style,as I think it looks as good as the VW Beetle.Let me know what yall think guys,am I crazy or what!.

    I certainly don't think we'll get any closer in look (or spirit, for that matter) to a G1 car mode Bumblebee than that. Nice find!

    I just say drop the movie look and use the Camaro. Just make a MP G1 Bumblebee with that alt mode, just keep the robot mode look as it was in G1. Have the Camaro front end as the feet and stuff.

    They already work together with GM.

    Sorry Jetbolt, but for some of us the G1 version is nostalgic and commemorative,just to take movie bee and call him Masterpiece is an insult to the original.To some on here G1 Bumblebee is and always be our favorites.So as for movie bee he basically sucks compared to him,and I am sure some will agree with me,as mentioned above he holds a special place for us G1 fans.

    I wouldn't say Movie 'Bee sucks, it's just a different character entirely from G1 Bumblebee.

    Sharing names doesn't make them one and the same.

    Bumblebee is and always will be a damned Beetle. As much as I hate them that is Bumblebee.

    As much as I like Camaro's and Firebird's(own 3 birdies) Bumblebee will never be one sorry.

    ^Nice! For the modern version, maybe they could use the Fiat 500:

    Even the 1965 model seems Bee-like:

    Hey Kusanagi, if you read my follow-up I said movie bee sucks "Compared to G1 Bee",not that he sucks overall,I like the movie bee but just not the same as his g1 counterpart.I hope that clarifies my meaning.

    Different continuity, different media, different decade, different consumer market, different character.

    Like I said, sharing a name doesn't make them one and the same.
    Not bad. In context to the G1 cartoon though, I do prefer something a little sportier consider how much he was driving off-road. Unless there's a Rally version of the Nuova 500 (sp?) I don't know about.

    I've always liked the 360, it's the cutest car. But it's not a Beetle.

    Though it'd make a great altmode for a similar minibot character, such as Glyph. It pretty much looks like a big smiley-face.

    I don't mind Bumblebee being a GM car, but I just don't see G1 Bumblebee as a character with a muscle car alt mode. Maybe one of GM's smaller cars. But something with kind of the old VW Beetle look would be better for hitting the old nostalgia buttons.
