    OK... I'm debating in getting Ultimate Bumblebee at Target. With the Power Coupon at 20% it will be $71.99. Did anyone get this yet? How does it compare to the one from the 1st movie?

    Thanks..

    Edit: Oh yeah. Ultimate Bumblebee is selling for $89.99 at the Target near my house in San Diego.

    Avoid that waste of plastic (and money) at all costs. Unless you find it heavily heavily on clearance.

    I heard the new one has a very finicky battle helmet. Rather than fliping down the top of the head like the human alliance figure does. The ultimate bumblebee has you take the head apart and reverse some panels.

    If its anything like the pop off ultimate bee doors vehicle to robot conversion suspended in by cables. You won't be delighted to perform this action.

    I'm not so fond of Human Alliance BB, but it is DEFINITELY much more worth it than Ultimate BB, which is a waste of plastic. So get HA BB instead.

    Unless you just plain can't wait, it probably be quite a bit cheaper down the line.

    Ultimate Bumblebee is the Tickle-Me-Elmo of Transformers toys.

    If you don't have HA Bumblebee, save the money, get HA BB, and have money to get some other figures.

    OK other than the price. What is a good reason why not to get this? I'm fortunate enough that money is not tight for me.

    On a side note, I find it kind of funny that some people complain about the price for the Ultimat Bumblebee and Devistator, yet they pay heavily inflated prices for Henkei/Imported figures that is a lot smaller at almost the same price.

    Personally, I like Ultimate BB. I own two of the first one (one was a present left in the box for display and the other I purchased loose from the Junkion here) and I think that the gimmicks are neat, the transformation is ok, and it's an overall cool figure. It is not, however, worth the full retail price. I wouldn't personally pay more than about $40 for the figure. If you pay more, you will not feel like you've received you're money's worth.
