    Nobody says CHUG anymore.

    Get the new one coming out. It'll be cheaper.

    Yeah, RTS Bumblebee will be the cheapest to get.

    Although, the Legacy of Bumblebee one looks better in my opinion, which is odd considering they look practically the same.

    IMO, Classics or Legacy Bumblebee is the nicest. Henkei, if you like slavish G1 deco. RTS BB always make me go LOL everytime I see the pic. The Movie racing stripes on his chest gives me the impression that BB is wearing suspenders.

    I already have the Henkei BB, but if I ever see the RTS version going cheap, I won't pass it up. Then I'll have a decision to make. But until then, I'm happy with Henkei.

    If I owned none of the above, I'd probably just wait for the RTS release. I really don't like the deco on the Classics version.

    Yes they do. Get over it.

    Anyway, the original is on my shelf, but price wise, the upcowing RTS one will be the cheapest. I personally plan on owning one of each so when Venksta does his Hubcap, Bumper, and Goldbug heads, I'll be prepared. :D

    I actually might get RTS Bumblebee, since I might sell my Henkei one.

    Thanks guys; definitely food for thought. I do like the RTS bumblebee but i wanna see what he looks like in hand first. The only thing is i really don't care for rubsigns one bit. I'm between RTS and Henkei i think and since i live in the UK by the time i get them imported they will cost practically the same, any henkie owners recommend him or is he not that great in hand?

    Again a big thanks for your time guys; your input is seriously appreciated :)

    I missed all the classic BB figures. Glad RTS BB is coming out. But yeah you might wanna wait for a review just to see if there aren't any major quality control issues. But the most practical buy would be RTS BB.

    ps. BTW Cool Avatar Omegatron Prime ;)

    :lol 

    Anyways. My personal fave out of the prior two was Legacy. Something about the translucent deep blue that was used for his windows and headlights made everything look great. Don't know if I will pick this mold up again for the third time. I'll just wait and see what he looks like in hand.

    But I do agree though, RTS would be cheaper and easier to obtain, if your not that particularly fussed about it.

    I have Classics BB and Legacy BB. But, I will be getting RTS BB. My fav so far though is the Legacy version. We'll see if that changes with RTS.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I missed out on the previous three versions of the mold, so I'll be getting the Reveal the Shield version. I'm not too fussed about it personally, I would just be happy to have some version of the mold. The paint job doesn't look all that bad, and the mold looks like fun. :)

    The Henkei one is great. With one minor complaint, random and odd placed golden hood-thingey, besides that he is great.
    I got Classics and Legacy too though and will get RTS and the United one, but I'm crazy about that mold+love Venkstas custom heads.

    But if I was just too have one, I'd go for Henkei despite the chrome. Mainly because he is the most G1 colored of them all.

    Regarding the rubsign, you can allways remove it and add a Reprolabel faction symbol. Thats what Im going to do.

    Well the Classics one also has a rub sign. I don't own the legacy one but I doubt it has it.

    Never heard of a CHUG Bumblebee, but if you're after a Bumblebee of some sort I'd wait for the RTS one.
