    I decided to get a couple of movie figures after holding out for so long. Decided to start with BB. So from all 3 movies, which is the best deluxe sized version? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Really? I see a bajillion of them on the pegs and I've ignored them for the most part... I have the Battle Blades one, but he's way too tall compared to my Voyager BB Prime and other deluxes... Is the DOTM smaller?

    Much smaller, from what I've heard the best one is Battle Blades due to the fact he can have two hands and a flip down visor whilst being mostly show accurate.

    HFTD Battle Blades Bee without a doubt. He looks awesome in both modes with a nice transformation and looks great. He is not quite in scale with the leader or voyager Prime figures but hey its transformers an trying to find characters in scale is a nightmare.

    HFTD Battle Blades seems to be the best one. I never owned it, but I always had an interest in buying it. After that, I like the 2007 Concept version (the one that was repainted into Cliffjumper). I did own that one.

    I can really recommend the HFTD Battle Blades Bee. His only disadvantage is he has the armpit-scratching arms, which the DOTM version gets right, I think.

    Like most have said, best Deluxe is Battle Blades BB. At this point though, I'd advise just getting DOTM Bumblebee, or DOTM Nitro Bumblebee. Both are easily attainable at retail, are more in scale with more figures, and really aren't that much worse than Battle Blades BB, and in some areas, even better.

    Yea, I would also suggest the HFTD Bumblebee. And if you picked up that Hasbro Groupon, it is a good way to use it, cause I think it is $6.99 right now on their site right now.

    dotm deluxe is best imo, does everything bb bee does, but is more proportionate and has way better arms. Only thing its lacking is the flip down visor.

    DotM Bee is my personal favorite. The transformation is the easiest, he has two hands, the overall quality is excellent (on mine at least), he's not oversized like BBBB. Even the mechtech gun is pretty cool.

    Like everyone else has said, BBBB.

    Though I still have a soft spot for Movie 1 Premium BB due to the paint job, who is displayed in alt mode.

    The best is definitely Battle Blades Bumblebee from the Hunt For The Decepticons subline. DoTM Bumblebee is pretty cool too.

    Mechtech deluxe get's my vote. He cuts down a lot of the needlessly complex aspects of BBBB, has better proportions and better arms, however at the extent of the mask, axe and gun gimmicks.
