    That thing isn't even close to ultimate level.

    It's more like a brick than a masterpiece.

    I’m disappointed but I’ll wait for a few other reviews before I make a decision.

    Look at the big picture in the middle of the thumbnails. The rocket launcher is the right arm rather than the left. Does this mean that the arms can be switched? Or Is there another set of arms? If so, that will be great because I would love to see BB with two normal arms. They can include them in the accessories like the MP accessories. It would really add to the value of UBB.

    I agree with the review. Light paint apps, lack of deeper sculpt detail for the size, and no transparent windows = sad collector.

    What a piece of junk.

    The deluxe '08 BB is much better IMO.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but I just mirrored the image I used for the Imagemap because I thought it looked cooler that way around. You can't switch the arms.

    wow he is already out?Talk about fast!
    Just read the review. Wow. I bet all of us would much rather see a movie accurate alternator Bumblebee. I think this thing will appeal more to the crowd that likes robosapiens, moreso than transformers fans. I'll just stick to the mainline.

    Its a pretty big let down. I agree that the deluxe verison looks way better then this one, it lacks in all departments really. Gotta feeling he'll be a shelf warmer till he gets marked down

    I'm quite happy that this toy is instilling in me no feelings of desire or excitement. I love it when that happens with expensive pieces! :D

    If it's hard to transform, that's awesome!

    Ultimate only refers to size, just like Supreme, Leader, Voyager, etc.

    True, Starscream was kinda crappy too.

    As for BB, I am a little disapointed, but I buy anyways.
