    We don't know. All we do know is it was announced a smaller Bumblebee mold was in the works that would be more size-accurate with some of the other toys (if you take Deluxe Prowl & Ratchet, Voyager Optimus and Leader Bulkhead, Deluxe Bumblebee is the odd one because he's too big and clunky in robot mode)...it may be that this Voyager class Bumblebee is this mold, and seeing as there will be no use for a bigger Bumblebee, it will come with something else that will justify the Voyager size and price point.

    Since it's called Hydrodive Bumblebee, it's easy to guess it at least has to do something with water.

    It actually a really good thing since it being at a larger price point means that the figures budget would have been bigger, this hopefully will result in it being quite well engineered even with the smaller size. Im also 99% certain that the accessory will be used in at least one episode of the show much like Samurai Armour Prowl this will help sell it and make the accessory not seem so much like a pointless pack in to justify the size.

    maybe the accessory is that mini-sub, that doctor fanzone used to spy on prowl and bulkhead, when they went on dinobot island. maybe it combines with bumblebee! :D

    That would be sort of cool, actually! It makes me think of the aquatic armor from Centurions.

    He combines with a mini-Bulkhead to form Bulkeebee.

    I wish. That'd be awesome.

    i'm really getting my hopes up for this bb! i hope that they fix the feet, the huge ugly feet on the first bb threw me off. but even then i'll buy it.

    on another note i agree with some othe people that it might have the mini sub and be used for armor

    Probably the small BB w/mini-sub accessory.
    Unless BB can fit into mini-sub,
    it probably changes into 'hydrowave armor'.
    "Torpedo/missile launcher" included.
    Big feet hopefully not included.

    In one of the Q & A's that hasbro has been doing for a few of the TF fan sites I cant recall which sites Q & A had the BB info but yeah new BB at a smaller size cause they werent happy with the current deluxe, they said it would come with an accessory so the could make him smaller most of us assumed a deluxe but apparently its a voyager which means since the BB is going to be smaller than the deluxe version alot of this toy is going to be the accessory.

    I'm hoping for some kind of sub that transforms into armour, thus bulking up the smaller bumblebee fig to the voyager pricepoint.

    That'd be sweet. It's.... UBERBEE!
