    Right so what exactly is it that ultimate Bumblebee does? I saw him on TRU.com as a pre-order and they have a very vague description.

    So is all he does is dance when you play music? Or does he transform on his own ? I didn't see a feedback thread for him. I was wondering if there was any more info on him.

    Lights, sounds, music, phrases from the movie, animatronics, transforms.

    So does he play music himself? Was this the BB with that played "whip it"?

    I am a sucker for these giant display pieces. Even though I am not going to collect the movie toys, I really enjoyed the movie and am tempted to pick this up. I'll probably wait until it goes on clearance though.

    I remember seeing the transformation video a time back...and afterwards what little wanting I may have had for it was gone.

    Just horrible.

    Problem is that the toy was handled by a retard. That toy has an amazing transformation. It just need to be in the right hands.

    I wonder if it can drive around too...it looks like the wheels plug into the moving socket where the arms go.

    Still, not a big fan of parts-formers which this most definitely is.

    Jesus, it's not a parts-former, only the doors need to be "detached" and "reattached" (while ALWAYS being linked to the toy). It's not any different that Jazz with this shield or Dropkick with his bed cover. It's ridiculous how one day some dude woke up and decided to call Ultimate BB a partsformers. Parts-former is G1 God Bomber.

    Ultimate BB makes different sounds in car mode depending on how fast you roll it and make it break.

    Doors hanging from wires = partsformer, even if it's only the doors. It's not like they are optional weapons that can be set aside like the ones you just mentioned.

    On a toy that big, it's uncool to have main robot bits hanging on wires that need to be manually reattached elsewhere IMO. They should have designed some type of linkage for them.

    Not any different than Unicron with his dangling planet halves that had to be detached and re-attached according to instructions. As far as I know, people were not calling him a parts-former. It's all in your head buddy.
