    Are there two versions of Unleashed Bumblebee? One with his battle mask on, and one without? All I can find is the unmasked one, and I really wanted the other one. I don't want to have spent $20 on something I'm going to have to buy again...

    Apologies if this has been brought up before. With no Search Function, I wasn't able to find anything...

    The only versions are the regular release, and the one with the comic book. No mold variations.

    Cool. I coulda sworn I saw a pic of him with the battle mask on way back when pics of him first started to surface.

    A trashed prototype idea?

    That's a possability. Hasbro (unfortunately) isn't producing any BB toys with his visor down. Which is a huge shame, because the toys would be a lot less ugly.

    There is nothing wrong with the first one. It's my favorite toy in my collection. Anyways, I've never seen anything about an alternate version.

    Yeah, Kmart has the one with the exclusive comic, all others are just regular Bumblebees nix the mask.

    Crap. Wish I could find those pictures...He had his mask down, and his head was turned the other way (instead of looking over his shoulder). He looked a h*ll*va lot more bad@$$ like that, then the one I bought in stores today...

    What they should have done was make it movable, so you could have it up or down. It's a simple rotation.

    Or give it two heads, like their second Darth Vader Unleashed. He came with helmet on and helmet off. That's what I was hoping for with this fig. They coulda sculpted the base of the head differently, so the masked head looks one way, and the unmasked looks another.

    Another question I had: This is '08 Camaro 'Bee, right?

    Happily, that's no longer true. A proto of a Robot Heroes Movie BB w/ mask was shown in the Hasbro case at BotCon.

    I'm guessing the mask was a late addition by the movie team like OP's sword.
