    I'm going to have to say Movie BB. How many versions of the 2010 Camero bot can they make?

    - Too many toys - Bumblebee, easily.
    - Too many comic appearances - Grimlock and Galvatron. I would be perfectly happy never seeing either of them in the TF comics again.

    Probably Bumblebee, currently. But personally I don't really mind. As long as there's a way for kids to get him, all the better.

    When I was a kid, Optimus Primal never showed up at my stores.

    And quite a few in the Animated line as well, that one I guess I get, geared more towards the kiddies, but really, it gets to be too much..:p

    BB and prime. BB gets a shitload of toys and Prime hogs all the screen time.

    Bumblebee's getting it again, but the original was a.) kid friendly, and b.) made up for it by also being smaller, weaker, and c.) despite being clever, most likely to get in deep... excrement. The Animated version follows the same vein but also has Cliffjumper's over-confidence. The movie version is the same as the original, but adds d.) teen friendliness, and e.) firepower. D and E seem to replace B and cut sharply into C.

    To me Ultra Magnus was highly overrated. in '86, he was billed as the "new"/replacement Optimus Prime (as Galvatron was to Megatron), but fell short because
    1. Unlike Galvatron (who was Megatron, Magnus -- in spite of sharing Optimus's all-important cab mold -- wasn't an upgraded Optimus Prime
    2. Despite his billing as a new Autobot leader, he was instead a overpriced second-in-command to the $15 (+ tax) Rodimus Prime.
    3. Most children's books at the time treated his as the Autobot (supreme) commander (read: replacement to Optimus Prime) when the driving fictions (cartoon and comic) did not. (Although in his defense, the UK comics made a big deal out of him.)
    4. His strength and power levels were consistently downgraded to those of Cyclonus (whom even Galvatron considered a second-rate Starscream).
    5. The very fact that American Magnuses could not launch missiles only adds to his overrating.
