    Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be from the Toy Fair pictures. Little to much car behind his head, but not nearly as much kibble on the back. Alt mode looks awesome. Thanks for the review!

    Thanks for sharing the pictures! I'm not overly fond of the robot mode, but the car mode is probably why I'll pick this one up.

    His biggest flaw IMO is the solid yellow bot parts, easily fixed. Gimme.

    The robot mode doesn't look so great, but I imagine it would look pretty decent with a good paint job. Loving the vehicle mode though. Given the similarity in shape, I'd love to see someone make a custom of this based on the police cars from Mad Max.

    Well technically, ALL movie deluxe Bumblebees, aside from the '75 Camaro and the DOTM Nitro mold have all been damn near engineered the same, at LEAST from the waist down. So it's totally understandable that it would remind you of the DOTM mold, or even the '07 mold or even the Battle Blades and "Cannon" molds.

    Is his chest the front of the car or fake kibble? If it's real, I take back what I said about Scorn being the only good figure.

    The chest is the real front of the car.

    I don't know why people are so fond of clear windows. Imagine if he was moulded in black, then they could've just painted the windows to like a glossy black, and they'd have more paint budget for robot mode.

    Heard that this guy is on the small side- any comparison shots of him with DotM Bee? Or any of the previous movie Bee figures?

    The deluxe dinobots look pretty decent. Its been awhile since I thought a movie deluxe was worth getting.

    I actually thought the exact same thing at first, so no, it's not just you. On further study, though, it's definitely different, like other posters have said.

    Car mode looks good. I like it. Bot mode looks like open-throat-surgery Bumblebee. Also looks like the same Bumblebee I have a few of with different car parts. I hope other people enjoy it, but I'll be passing.
