    So.....As I know people here hate Bumblebee.And so the topic of this thread is simple....why do you hate him.But here comes the "challenge" in the title......you can't say "Shelf clogging" or "Too many repaints'' or nothing toy related.So it is that simple....why do you hate Bumblebee in the movie itself.....not him in his "plasic form.":)

    He went from being a spy/underdog type of character to being an overrated super-ninja second only to Optimus, who could take no injury after movie 1 and was able to single-handedly destroy any and everything in his path. That ruins the point of Bumblebee, who was originally just a spy and sometimes protector (who needed help himself), that they'd started in movie 1. Yes, I understand he was going to grow some as a character, but it would be like Carrot Top becoming Rambo. It makes no sense!

    He's. Everywhere. And those "fans" who have only seen the movies? He's the only one they know about. -_-

    Bumblebee lacks a personality.

    With this muteness he becomes another Sankes Eyes. Doesn't help he's a Mary Sue and he's overexposed as well as a bazillion shelfwarming toys.

    I miss G1 and TFA Bumblebee.

    I prefer my Bumblebee as an unassuming, good-natured, helpful, almost shy dude, who can nevertheless display the courage of a lion when needed and uses wits/dexterity to best his opponents instead of brawn/firepower.

    Movie Bee, by contrast, is an annoying, immature, personality-devoid brawler.

    At least he´s useful as opposed to a small VW who by all rights should not last in a high dangerous environment.

    The only thing I didn't like about Bee in the movies had nothing to do with the character personally, just the fact that the writers made him take and oil-piss all over Simmons.

    I think it's time you took a gander at how the IDW comics handled Bumblebee.

    He's not interesting after the first movie. He's just a screen hogging buddy for Sam and a typical badass like every Autobot in the movies. He's part of the reason why this franchise sometimes feels like "Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, oh, and a few other robots in the background" rather than "Transformers."


    I agree with this.

    I prefer the WFC version tank you very much.

    I still maintain the opinion that BB should be a mini sized Sam Fisher ant not some "relatable" character (I never liked that concept even as a kid). He´s small, so have be a some sort of assassin that uses the small size as an advantage, given some energon weapons and some sort of stealth weaponry. Or else he´s not gonna last in an environment where everyone and their mother carries weapons nearly as big as he is.

    Well, the two aren't mutually exclusive. He can still be Mister Nice Guy (to his peers and allies), and a highly competent covert operative. The smaller size, stealth weaponry and so on would be entirely in keeping with the role you suggest, as well as with my notion that he relies on smarts and skill instead of brawn. Unfortunately, neither your vision nor mine (which are quite compatible, actually) are what Bay gave us.

    because he is too overated and he is basically immortal, he can be put in a room with all the decepticons and find a way to survive and a way to kill all of them
