    Review

    Bot mode
    Very good bot mode with tons of articulation in arms and legs
    Head is awesome
    Bumblebee has weapons:eek: 
    Great stand in for a G1 Bee

    Alt mod
    Streamlined and slick car
    compact design
    Very complex transformation

    Overall one of the best Bumblebee toys we have gotten in a very long time

    Can we get some shots of the bot mode from the side? What kind of backpack kibble are we dealing with?

    Can't wait for this guy to hit the pegs.

    Good review, too, though I second the notion for side shots.

    Side shot
    [​IMG]

    He has minimal kibble since the doors/roof fold up inside.(slight hunchback look from the side but from the front it vanishes)

    His chest sticks out further than the backpack

    Interesting little bugger. I get a real Tron vibe from him, moreso than the other WFC toys show so far bar Megatron.

    He looks great, but... oh no, he's taller than Prime. That won't do.

    Damn, he isn't nearly as "fat" as I thought he was. I also love the shade of yellow, not near-neon yellow like the Alterenity version. Oh, and weapons, gotta love a G1-esque Bee who can actually deal some damage. So gonna get.

    Also, I find it interesting that the package bubble has a sticker advertising "The hub".

    I am loving this. Hasbro is starting to really step it up lately. I can only attribute it to the success of the movies.

    Phew. Though Bee still should be much shorter than Prime. It's ROTF Deluxe Ratchet and Ironhide all over again...

    How is the yellow matching on his roof piece compared with the rest of the car? Some pics (but not so much yours) have shown it a bit badly matched, interested to hear what you think of the matching in person.

    I don't think I've ever seen bot mode with the blades retracted, do they?
