    I was hoping for it to be priced at $25 but I will probably still get a set

    so at 28.88...that probably means like $50 here in canada considering US pays what 9.99 for a deluxe while we pay 14,99

    Animated Bumblebee is the same release as normal, the movie Bumblebee is the Premium version so you get the armored head and dark gray instead of black. The only big difference is Classics BB who's decoed more like the other two, yellow forearms and black stripes.

    "Classic" Bumblebee changes all the white paint details in vehicle mode (including the racing stripes) to black (movie-inspired deco).

    Movie Bumblebee is identical to the "Premium Series" single release.

    Animated Bumblebee is identical to the single release.

    Too bad they couldn't throw in the original G1 BB as well but I guess that would have made the price jump a little.

    Damn. So Animated BB's rocket boosters don't have the red detailing?

    Looks like Classics BB's trailer is now yellow.

    I'll be getting this just for Classics BB and renaming him Yellowjacket. The Movie BB is a nice little bonus for me. I'm gonna send my old Movie BB and this extra Animated BB to my nephew.

    Movie Bumblebee is the same as Premium Bumblebee (much better paint, more accurate colours, new head), while Animated Bumblebee is the same as the single-carded version.

    Classics Bumblebee has his plastic colours laid out almost the same as Henkei Bumblebee, so the silver plastic is now yellow. Plus, his white paint is now black.

    I agree. Any good "legacy" should start with the original.

    However, it does look like a good 3-pack if you're missing 2 or all 3 of those figures. An original BB and maybe a $30 price point might have put it over the top for me, despite having all of the figures. It would be cool to keep MISB, if nothing else.
