    I noticed that the toy has car wheels. WTF Hasbro. At least you could have used that little wheels you use on fake tank rubber-wheels. Using a car wheel on a Cybertronian mode is a big, BIG mistake Hasbro...

    -What are your comments guys?

    Isn't Bumblebee a Cybertronian Car, anyways? It's technically a tank, but it still looks a lot like a car, so I hardly find the wheels to be jarring.

    Well, if they didn't transform into something that remotely looks like a car, they wouldn't be Transformers, eh?

    I'm not understanding the complaint to be honest. He wants fake wheels over real ones?

    If I'm understanding correctly, he doesn't care for more Earth-like car tires on a pre-Earth Cybertronian vehicle mode.

    I'd agree.

    It looks game-accurate to me, that's all that should matter.

    Well, then you have a block of plastic that looks all sleek and shit but does absolutely nothing. Awesome.

    Or pre-Earth G1 Bee. ;)  Or just a less Earthen tire style.

    I wouldn't think the wheel is something that is unique to Earth.

    WFC Optimus also has wheels. They don't appear to have hover-vehicles in this version of Cybertron.

    I like the wheels. It's my favorite BB toy next the Classic version I have. Now bring on Cliffjumper with a remolded head.

    Maybe it's in canon with ROTF. After all, Jetfire's father was the first wheel...

    There are transformers that aren't cars, you know.


    I love the wheels, they look great. How is it a mistake?

    I mean, Bumblebee transformed into a car. Its like making Starscream turn into something that lacks jet wings.

    Am I the only one that seems to think the OP is speaking of the style of tires in general rather than wheels in general??
