That is a BRILLIANT move Hasbro! Bumblebee does not shelf warm enough let's ship a case that is nothing but Bumblebee's!

Well, it's a Target exclusive.
Shin-Gouki
So they could have put other stuff in the case.
AAarcher221
Hasbro, why? Why you keep doing this?

Look on the bright side...it's a Target exclusive, and it doesn't take up too much space. In pretty much all the Targets I go to, only one peg is devoted to Predacons Rising deluxes, while BH and Generation deluxes get 2 pegs each on average. So having all these BBs is only preventing more Skylynx from going on the pegs, if you haven't already gotten Skylynx.

It's gonna be funny because I don't think we'll ever see this for a long time in Portland. The 4 Targets I go to on a regular basis aren't moving their Skylynx figures...they're always clogging up the shelves. The only Predacons Rising stuff people seem to be buying around here are Darksteel and Abominus. Everything else is warming the pegs in a pretty hard way.

Man, if I'd have known this wasn't out yet in most of the country, I would've said something. I found him here, too.
MattDallas
I'm sure I've seen these in Tescos here in the UK for a while.

Oh snap!
Smokescreen
They waste an entire case on yet another BB repaint when they could've done a blue version of deluxe Smokescreen, instead.
Tman978
If Target is Smart, they would price this at $5. It probably will still be on the shelf til August next year anyway but they could try.

You are probably bias but I agree
sagia
Great! But tell me WHY??? Who needs this. There are aprox 6-8 bumblebee deluxes in for the Prime series. Most of the yellow.

Now, now, no need to be putting labels on people.

*Looks at my sig and avatar and name*

Okay, I'm biased.
deliciouspeter
Too bad it wasn't the black version...Shadow Something Something.
aptkane
And the crowd goes........silent?
TFSLC
Agreed. Blue Smokescreen would have been so much better... or... Ironhide?
Brokenn77
Am I the only one who wishes that Megatron would have actually killed Bumblebee in the season finale and he didn't come back just in hopes Hasbro wouldn't add to the 127 million variations of each bumblebee mold?
BWfan86
^dude, mark spoilers...
Metroplex79
I don't mind the yellow. But a simple fix for that mold would have been to give it a new head, add black stripes, and call it Tiger Track.

It is a beast line, why not have beast names?

not everyone watches everything immediately...It's common courtesy

We could have ourselves an Insecticon, a blue and yellow Smokescreen, or hell even a Thundercracker repaint of the Beast Hunters Starscream. What do we get is yet another Bumblebee that's barely different from before. You know I still enjoy the movieverse even though the movies are crap and I feel that Bumblebee has long overstayed his welcome. I thought Hasbro would have learned their lesson by now. I get that its a store exclusive but this right here is beyond stupid and pointless. How many kids need another goddamn Bumblebee in their collections? There is a sea of variety in the Transformers mythos and the constant avalanche of Bumblebees needs to stop.

Nah, you've almost certainly seen the original Matt, which swaps the blue plastic for black.

Because it's nearly identical to the standard version it's the Worst exclusive repaint *EVER*. Thankfully it's wave 2 and not wave 1.

Anyone seen the black BB vs red Blight Legion 2 pack yet? especially in the UK.
Prime Jetscream
Um, I'm pretty damned sure that he's from the exact same wave as Prowl...

EDIT: Nevermind, confused him with Night Shadow Bumblebee. Damn, Hasbro.
Exodus
I hope these hit clearance in a few months
Stygian360
I realize this was front paged for the courtesy of those 2 fans who are army building BB's, but this really doesn't feel like news to me for some reason.
gothsaurus
Oh. Yeah, it's got some blue accessories and a bit of blue paint on the hood. I guess it is a WEEEEEE bit different.

Makes me wonder if they just take the same yellow bee and give him a couple different paint apps. (ie. if you strip off the paint... same moulding. Hmmm.)

I feel sorry for you Bumblebee completionists. (Pours out a drink for his homies.)

I appreciate it.

i love how bee comes with his original weapons in addition to his new eagle crossbow however arcee and her kick ass gun didnt... go figure.
chnkyclnkytrike
Wow Target has some weak exclusives Darkstell looks to be the decent one of the bunch, The ultimate predaking fire whatever deal...... I will only buy if i find it around 30 35 bux.

Don't get confused, keep track of new Hasbro releases here.
Autovolt 127
I just hope there don't stock much of this.
CapnScumbone
It's like you read my mind! What fans need and crave is YET MORE BUMBLEBEE VARIANTS. WE all know that he's the only character that matters!
sh002
yawn
TCJJ
Yay, another Bumblebee repaint! Genius.

Actually, Bumblebee hasn't been shelf-warming as much over here, recently. I've seen more Wheeljacks, Soundwaves and Arcees.

Bumblebee is still around, though, of course, but at least it isn't shelf-warming like the Generations cassetticons that are NZ$20 and totally not worth that at all.
BWfan86
The times I've been to the big box retailers, I haven't seen a whole lot of bumblebees shelfwarming, either. Like the above poster mentioned, I've seen more BH Wheeljack and FOC Soudnwaves + cassettes. Also, I've seen a ton of Deluxe Jazz figures around.
Acid Wing
EDIT: My apologies, Vertebreak is not part of the Target exclusives line.

Reveal the Shield or 07 movie or Animated Jazz?

So that's where all the yellow plastic went.

Now I'm curious about that Hyena Cannon.
