    I'm completely burnt out on his current incarnation.

    He doesn't even have much of a character in the new movie, he's basically just a pet. No voice, no memory, and zero agency of his own. Hell unlike the rest of the autobots he didn't have a name, just a number.

    It was basically a horse movie.

    Bumblebee as of late became more of an Cliffjumper clone.

    After TLK I became an avid Bee hater, Im tired of him being shoved in my face everywhere and on everything Transformer related.

    Fortunately BB made me like the character again, like how can you hate that adorable cutie ???

    Yeah. There are more interesting and underused characters.

    I'll be honest, I was tired of Bumblebee after bayformers and Prime, but RID2015 and the Bumblebee movie kind of reinvigorated my ability to enjoy the character. Cyberverse Bumblebee is wearing that back down though.

    I’m just tired of Bumblebee not being able to talk. That said, I still enjoyed the Bumblebee movie. I just hope that if this new continuity continues (and I hope it does) that his voice is restored in the sequels. The talking through the radio thing has gone on way too long IMO. I don’t mind him being a Camero again, just please give him his voice back.

    I haven't seen the Bumblebee movie yet. I was fine with Bee until the Last Knight. In that movie he was just a tag along character for the sake of it. (Except when he spoke to Prime, I loved that scene. )
    And then I found out he was getting a solo movie. Why him? He's already been the robot star of every movie so far...

    Seeing the new movie made me feel like Bumblebee was some sort of temper-less pet. I usually like the character as he is quite a key one and as he doesn’t talk but I kind of disliked him sometimes in the movie. Sometimes he feels too fragile and that’s something that bugs me as Transformers are reassuring for me...

    Not G1 Bumblebee but Movie, Aligned and Cyberverse, definitely.

    He’s just stupid in the Bumblebee movie. How does losing your voice turn you into a mentally challenged clumsy incompetent doofus?

    Losing his voice made him fit the ET trope, which is what actually reduces lost aliens to pet status.

    I'm kinda half and half on the subject. I was more pissed that they made him mute and double pissed because they tried placing him into the "Hot Rod" position. Then killing off. Liffju per just made it all worse.

    I liked the new BB movie Bee till he changed into a Camaro. I just muttered to myself "For the love of God" Also stop making him a mute. Its tired and old.

    I don't understand how anybody can like Bumblebee especially after the last movie. People HATE this type of character in other movies. To me Bumblebee is just like Rey & look how much hate Rey gets because she's a "Mary Sue", totally over powered, unstoppable, GOD MODE. Everybody complains that Rey became a full Jedi with no training while Luke took 3 movies to develop. Bumblebee is supposed to be a scout but they've made him more powerful than Optimus Prime. And that doesn't bother anybody. Bumblebee cannot be stopped or killed.

    In the first movie Jazz got ripped in half at the waist. And HE DIED! Why did he die??? His spark wasn't destroyed. Bumblebee got his legs blown off & didn't die. Jazz could have easily been repaired, Ratchet was right fucking there! Then in TLK Bumblebee gets blown apart & just magically reforms with no explanation. And in the last movie Blitzwing fucked him up. No way he survived that. We saw tons of Decepticons get killed by far less damage at the end of ROTF. Just a couple shots from human weapons & DEAD! In the last movie he took a shot that was supposed to finish him off. But nope! Charlie just pumped him with some random electricity & he was good as new. Bumblebee survives everything just to keep the stupid, poorly written story moving along.

    Also did everybody forget that the Decepticons basically won the war? The Decepticons aren't stupid! The Autobots were driven off their planet because the Decepticons kicked their asses. But every Decepticon that gets close to Bumblebee goes full retard & forgets how to fight. They just stand there as Bumblebee climbs all over them & rips them apart. I can't stand that shit but nobody else seems to notice.

    An awesome movie like Godzilla King Of The Monsters gets torn apart by a bunch of tiny little insignificant nitpicks that shouldn't have even been noticed. But all these huge problems with Bumblebee get overlooked for some reason. I wouldn't even be a Transformers fan if it weren't for the toys. I have to ignore pretty much everything now except the toys. The video games were also good but unfortunately they stopped making them. I used to love the movies but TLK & Bumblebee ruined them for me. The toys are becoming such a huge rip-off that I'm probably gonna drop them too after Omega Supreme, Jetfire & Piranacon. I just can't do it anymore.

    Yes to a point but it doesn't bother me.....as i answered the question from the orginal post. You also have to look at it as not just a fan but as a business and profit idea. Sure BB's is over used but that's why we also have choices so you as a fan can vote with your dollars. You can buy what you want and leave the BB's for the younglings and fans that only buy BB's stuff from underwear to figures.
