    He's not upside down, he's just trying to pick up a scent!

    It's hard to tell if those are stickers in the pictures. I really hope they used tamps instead of stickers.

    I really wish the cassettes were packaged together without that Bumblebee, still will get it through.

    I haven't handled that Bee mold yet. Is it any good?

    it's a QC roulette.

    Mine's good, but you go to his review thread and many other people are complaining they got bad copies.

    They are stickers. Uruaz's orange plastic is reflecting in Dairu's metallic silver.

    Massive disappointment (it cannot be expressed enough how much I despise stickers), but it's hardly going to stop my getting these.

    (OTHER issues, like web congestion, fan demand, or simple unavailability, might, of course)

    Don't care about the cassettes. I just want the Bee. The completionist in me will always be just a little bit annoyed if I don't get it. Here's hoping it'll pop up by itself on eBay.

    Seriously if you throw a want thread here on the boards I'm sure there would be more then enough people willing to sell their BB. Seems like there's enough people that just want the cassettes but don't care about BB.

    Agreed, although the number who would want to keep it misb will likely be high too.

    Considering the number of G1 folks who want just the cassettes and don't care at all for the movie aesthetic, I'm sure there will be folks who will be practically giving away that bee on the boards and ebay.

    Is the combined mode supposed to be an enemy for BB to fight?

    Also, its gonna suck if I go completionist on this line, only to jump from #18 to #20. :confused:

    So they DO acknowledge the Dino-Cassettes' combined mode! Sweet! Though I still wonder why they made one of them a Decepticon...

    Absolutely no interest in that movie abomination stuff. This exclusive will sell because of the cassettes. Anyone that says otherwise is high off the Bay-verse fumes.

    So what are the odds this won't be available on the Hasbro toy shop website?
