    Wow. This is the first movie toy that, I will say, looks like utter crap.

    Though the animatronics look fun, and his vehicle mode is cool. Atleast he doesn't lack in the detail department.

    I'll get him, he looks worth it. Though he could've, and should've, been better.

    I'd be happier with the deluxe one (if I could find it, that is).

    The revving/braking SFX in car mode sound awesome, I love that bit.

    Which is unfortunate, because nearly everything about his robot mode completely puts me off. What the ultimate dealwrecker for me is, would be the chest. I just do not understand how a $90 toy could not accomplish a decent chest deformation like a $10 toy could.

    Having seen the entire movieline that is viewable to the public at this juncture, and being the owner of most of the mainline toys on the market, I feel that Ultimate Bumblebee can join Voyager Megatron as the only movie toys to completely disappoint me thus far.

    :( 

    Although I'd rather have one when it goes on clearance, I know they won't be on shelves long so like a sucker, I'll end up buying one...

    Got-dang electronic gimmicks.. figure could've been much, much more without them.

    Ok I'm going to do like Gramma said and only say something nice. It's bigger than I thought it would be. Sorry, but that is the best I could do.

    Man that thing looks like garbage. maybe it is the pics, but the plastic looks cheap and the lack of detail and transformation is just a lack luster for $90. Good thing I dont collect autobots. Now ultimate Brawl, Bonecrusher, Barricade or Blackout, then thats a different story. WOW just realized the decepticon side is mostly all starting with B'S?!

    I envision an Ultimate Bumblebee to be more... ultimate. It's a Transformer after all. Gimmick bots have their place, but to me, naming it 'ultimate' is a misnomer. It's cool for what it is, i'm not surprised by it, but it won't be on my shelf. Ever.

    The real Ultimate Bumblebee would be GM selling the 2009 Camaros now, in 'Bumblebee gold' paint jobs.

    So more or less he is a masterpiece size? I have to agree that his robot mode is lacking... Parts of him look a lil more like the kids version of him. Maybe that is just me, but there is definatly something wrong with his robot mode.

    The chest is still mis-transformed in those pictures.

    This guy has it correct.


    Still looks a mess with all the gimmicks though; pity, as there was the makings of a great toy in there.

    PLEASE tell me the chest is transformed wrong... Just when I got over his perminant gun arm (Give us the choice between gun and hand dammit!) they throw at us this crappy chest.
