    I'v found that when DON's working on the first few pages for the PREQUEL comic #1, Bumblebee's original appearance was totally different than the approved design.

    There must be some reason that forced him to redo all those pages and the wraparound cover. Isn't having an actaul toy could be a possibilty, you think?

    i dont see how the response to the protoform version warrant more than preview figures.

    I think he changed it to look more like Camaro BB in design. And since they deal with real transforms, it only makes sense that the meteor/pod would be altered aswell.

    I'm only about halfway through it, but the protoforms have already been used several times - by Bumblebee, in fact - in the prequel novel (not comic).

    Used for atmospheric entry to a planet, like we've seen in the trailer.

    actually that whole first issue was a bit of a debacle in itself :p 

    basically can be summed up as miscommunication

    Don based the first version [drew the WHOLE book with that version] based off an early concept of camaro bumblebee

    turns out in the end that hasbro thought he looked too much like his earth bot mode so he had to be redrawn to match the look/aesthetic of the protoforms seen in the movie/preview toys

    so yeah. the book was originally drawn with that first bumblebee [also halfway colored] but then we had to go back, redraw/recolor all the panels with bumblebee

    lots of tedious cut/pasting that i never wanna have to do again :p

    I could see them doing a couple of protoform TF's from the movie along with Bumblebee honestly. Cant really say at this stage of the game but I wouldn't discount it from the realm of possibility, you never know what surprises Hasbro has up there sleeve.

    I could also see them doing such toys maybe not as how there doing preview Prime and Starscream, but maybe as Titaniums or something.
