    Released today, this is a little $.99 app that is basically a virtual Bumblebee. You transform him by tapping the phone, view specs, and pose him. Don't have photos as he is in my Iphone, but I'll try to get some shortly.

    Nevermind, he's through Glu, so there are photos on their page.

    In Robot mode you can mess with his flip battle mask and pop his missile launchers out, and in vehicle mode, you can mess with sounds. So he's basically an action figure. It even has a minigame where you time yourself to see how fast you can Transform him. More are supposed to be coming to the App, like Decepticons

    Fun little app..

    You get challenge levels (puzzles) to transform him with increasing difficulty.

    The stage I'm on now has a 2 and a half minute transformation sequence where you rotate the figure, trace your finger through a maze, rotate gears, etc.

    Sounds like a fun app. I'll wait to see if they will have other Transformers before I get one for my iPod Touch.

    According to the description the updates will include more robots, so they should be free. I know it's still but a nice addition would be for Bumble to move and play your Ipod music like a little MP3 screensaver.

    Anyone have any advice for the Epsilon stage? Specifically the 3 dots in the shape of a triangle?

    I tried to push all three at once.. I managed to get it to work somehow but haven't been able to do it again since.

    This doe look pretty cool, I just down loaded it but I havnt opened it yet. I assumed that the additional transformers to come would be more .99 apps rather included in an update. What's really awesome is that I don't have to worry about my wife saying "where do you plan on keeping that thing" ^_^

    Cyber Toy

    Do a search for Cyber Toy. I'm hoping an additional 99 cents won't be needed for the other transformers since they said "Future Updates will include." But don't give them any ideas.

    What a piece of utter garbage. The first iPhone app I've felt ripped off over. Even for less than a quid. Gar-bage.

    Hahaha, but it's free. If you spent the buck on the original, this will update free. Optimus is kinda cool, I like how you can turn his headlights on and honk his horn. Now he just needs a button that says "Homicidal Mode"

    This just updated today with Dancing Bumblebee (he dances to your itunes music), and the update mentioned free Starscream and Megatron coming soon.

    edit: The funny thing is, Bee seems to recognize what type of music you play because when I played rock, he started air-guitaring, but when I played Techno, he was totally raving.

    This is now worth the dollar-ish.
