    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to get yalls thoughts on the WFC Bumblebee and Cliffjumper of how they look so much like computer mice,do you think the video game designers and later Hasbro themselves were just lazy or pretty smart making them to look like mice?.To me I think it was both,even tho it might have been laziness it still is a pretty sweet design,but tbh I hope they don't do any more like that,as they aren't very practical in alt mode.So what do you think of them.Thanks guys.

    I'm the opposite, love the alt mode, hate the bot. WFC BB is one of the few figures I display in alt mode. It's like a futuristic, tron version of a VW bug. I like it. Bot mode on the other hand is far too big. BB should not be tall. I'm not too big a stickler for scale usually, but when you take a small bot and make him tall it gets a bit weird.

    I agree on the height, that's why I don't extend their legs all the way.

    The figures themselves are ok. I choose CJ way over BB though..

    Bee wasn't designed to resemble a mouse at all. So calling the developers lazy because you think they look like a mouse is just insulting. He was designed to look like a futuristic VW Beatle. They've said that in at least one of the video previews the game had before release.
