    So I did something really stupid. You know how the new TF figures mostly have nice ball joints and parts that easily disconnect and reconnect so that it is harder to break them? Well unfortunately '74 Bumblebee's doors do not work that way. I accidentally stepped on the poor guy and broke one of his doors. I am sooo sad about this.

    I need a replacement now, but I don't want to pay $7,625,851,909 for one on eBay. What is my best recourse now? I had been seeing in him in stores on and off, more than most people seem to have seen him, but that was probably a few weeks ago. Is he coming out with the restock/next wave/whatever ? Or am I doomed to buy him for 2x or 3x (plus shipping) his regular price?

    Uhm... mind if I asked what put poor BB in an "easily stepped on position"?

    If you can't find one at BBTS, Digital-toys, A3U, JRS, etc. You'll almost have to shell out the ebay price... I think it's done being shipped, but Hasbro could be re-shipping the first waves to make up for the high demand.

    I bought the 74 BB for my 3 yr. old son, and he abuses this toy on a daily basis.
    He Loves it!!

    If it helps any, the door was the only part that I had to do an actual repair on. It broke right where the hinge connects. I just Krazy-glued the hinge area, and kept opening and closing the door nonstop during the glue drying time.

    It hasn't given me any problems since, and you really can't tell.

    Best of all, my son made me feel like a hero:)

    Have you looked in Aldi's or Kohl's Stores? They carry the deluxe sized figures and aren't as picked over because most people don't realize they are there.

    I will take you up on that if you're serious; that would be totally rad of you. Unfortunately I'm broke until this coming Friday. I'll probably check Aldi's and Kohl's as suggested, because I do remember seeing a BB at Kohl's, and both stores are near here. If I can't find one, I'll pm you on Friday or Saturday. Is that cool?

    I would have tried that, but a tiny piece of hinge plastic actually flew off to an unknown location, possibly shot under the couch.

    Well here are some possible causes:

    1. I was doing my Unicron impression.

    2. Somehow he came to life and was running around underfoot.

    3. I was picking up my TFs after the aftermath of a giant battle for the apartment.


    Pick one.

    My poor Bumblbee's door broke too, I was sad aswell. So I took both peices and glued it back on with model cement. Once it dries, try and swivel it. It'll probobly be loose, but it won't fall off.

    Really? Are you sure you aren't confusing that with the Voyager Prime/'08 BB two pack?

    That would be cool if they did have that.
