I had their 60s Batman one a while back, it was pretty good quality

WHOA, there's a high quality pic of BBs new CGI model on page 87!

I can't pull pages from PDFs at work, but someone needs to!

The colour and stripe pattern do not match on the robot - that is cynical as hell.

He's got way more black on him than can possibly be explained. Am I supposed to imagine his black paint crawling across the surface or does it fold the middle of the stripe into 6 times it's surface area on the car just for giggles.

It's going to make Hasbro's task tricky as that stripe pattern combo is impossible without face parts.

Gotta say....

The new design direction that we've seen on every bot so far is a really great evolution of what the first 3 films had.

Same level of detail but now there's more style incorporated to each design...a bit more personality with the armor now.

^Initially looking at the pics, I thought that AOE BB's black area was his front bumper.

On another note, there's really one thing I fear for the whole AOE Toyline........

inaccurate wheel spokes

I do like how they kept his signature wheels on the back though.

OH LOOK GUYS LOCKDOWN'S BEEN CONFIRMED AS TBD OMGOMGOMG

^For people who do that, STAHP.
Red Goblin
Looks like Bee has some visible car parts afterall.
Ra88
Egh. Still do not like it. It took the first trilogy's alien aspects and ramped it up by a 100.

At least it looks like this will be a lot easier to make a toy out of then Optimus. I can actually kind of picture where everything would go for a toy.
SilverOptimus
Noticed the lights underneath the slot cars? Red for Bumblebee and Purple for Lockdown. Autobots and Decepticons respectively.

The amount of yellow works just fine. You're looking straight down at his chest, not at the front of it. Open up the hood of a Camaro and you will see TONS of black plastic cladding everywhere, and it's behind the plastic front bumper too....if his hood is on his back as with the previous design, there's more than enough yellow.

All they really did was split the previous chest design horizontally (it was already split vertically) and move each part to the 4 corners of his chest. You can even see them in that pic despite the angle.

This Bumblebee does not need a weapon. He can just slice the cons up with his spiky pauldrons.

I don't see too much difference.

But I hope he talks.

God that's hideous. Absolutely fucking hideous.

As for the actual racing set... it looks like it's probably better than the one seen earlier with the track going through Optimus's trailer and the modified Lambo.
Cybertronian
Was about to ask "what scale is it?". Thank you, person who titled the thread.
Also important to me: Can the track be layered (changing a 2-lane/2-car track into a 4-lane/4-car track)?
I'm pretty sure that it can work with HO (1/64 slot) scale cars, but if someone can confirm this? Awesome. (I have a pair of General Lees, a Rosco patrol car, one or two Tyco Autobots, and a Tyco K.I.T.T. clone in bad need of mileage.)

That clear look at bumblebee gave me a clear reason to not buy the figure coning out
Bumblethumper
Yikes.

this thing's a hot mess. I'm now dreading the toys.
Yggdrasil
Not sure how I feel about it.

Look a lot more smoother and cleaner than the last three designs but still...it's a very weird angle. Still need to see a proper CGI shot to get a full on opinion on him.

It seems backwards to me ~ DOTM really cleaned up BB and Primes silhouettes and gave them more "heroic" proportions, everything i've seen from AoE makes it look like we've gone even more into the weak "Shards of metal" vibe the first film had.
Enigma2K2
How is it he keeps getting redesigned and upgraded, but no one's fixed his f****** voice?
dragon
he does look interesting almost less iratating until toys get released cant wait to see how he looks in movie
Rumblestorm
I wonder why there's people still in this fandom when they seem to hate almost everything about it.
Zikmaster1000
Ok, now that we got a clear look at BB in AOE, I don't mind it, I want to see this in actual CGI and in action though, will still have to see but so far love Bumblebee's new look

With shock absorbers!
tonyformer
Wow guys! I can say for once, I think this is the perfect mix of both a Eartj look but still enough of his true look to not be over done either way. This looks like this will be my new favorite design for him./

He's always had the shock absorber abbs. Look at him in DOTM. In fact, OP also has them in DOTM.
Autovolt 127
I really like the way his helmet looks here.
evac167
Best design so far. He looks like a bad ass warrior. I'm really loving all the new designs. Michael bay and his design team has done an amazing job creating these guys. Very pleased and impressed. Can't wait to see the rest of the new transformers

Two words.....POLISHED TURD!
lord ginrai
Yep, I'm on board.
Liking this redesign and can't wait to see it in action!
Snake_eyes1975
if bayverse bee, and TFP bee had a baby...this would be it..
Neo-Bombshell
Gret design, but it will be ruined with the new simplified toys.
SPLIT LIP
He looks pretty sweet, actually. Like his Prime design but more dynamic. And visible kibble! Scared me for a second.

Agreed.
Yggdrasil
I REALLY want a clear(er) picture of Drift and Crosshairs now. Those two are my main points of interest right now.
Starfire22
Looks good. Like a cross between Prime BB, and Movie-verse BB.
Shizuka
At least finally had the guts to say:

"Goddamnit guys! Enough with the front of car for the chest and doors for wings!"
harrismonkey
I'm still not on board with the new bb, but this is my favorite image of him I've seen so far. Maybe there's hope. Time will tell.
IaconStargazer
Hm. Not bad.
unicronic
I don't know if this has been raised before but don't AOE Prime & Bee have a very samurai/feudal armor look to them?

I'm wondering if these updated designs of the key characters are actually reimagined according to that kind of theme?

With another character apparently being a very Samurai looking bot it could be a recurring theme for the Autobots at least.

If so then perhaps we can hear Optimus Prime shout 'Gaijin' at someone.
WOTplayer
What's with his head? Looks weird. The horns almost remind me of Prime Cliffjumper.
tonyformer
You can tell that this Bee is still based off of a earlier concept. The hood parts are black as if Bee was going to initially have a black hood and the headlights on his shoulders are still the single circular DOTM Camaro lights.
