    Would anyone recommend this thing to a nephew? If not any recommendations on solid figures that survive kids?

    Packaging error -they swapped the words "buzzworthy" with "cringeworthy" again.

    That does sound like a reasonable comprise. If you’re really waiting for him , Wait for the Takara release

    This line is shaping up to be great :) 

    Bee is 2 to a case, Elita’s also 2 and the rest are 1. And the plan WAS to make him, Elita, and Soundwave mainline releases. However, Siege’s extension and ER’s shortening as a result from that meant that there weren’t any real slots that the three would go for, and they’re too much of “main characters” that they wouldn’t fit in Selects... so they got shoved in the Netflix line so they could actually come out.

    They made a new mold for a legends "core" figure that looks like a random mix of different bee's (not that bad looking to me overall but..) seems like a wasted opportunity to give a new mold in that size class for animated bee

    Most of the Seekers, Ironhide, Ratchet and Prowl are damn near impossible to find exclusives. Meanwhile, the limited shelf space still available is given to these. Not a great start for the new TF team.

    Coal is hard to find in your area....?

    Is this the plan to replace all the Earthrise and Studio Series stock currently at the bottom of the ocean? Amass as much unsold Bumblebee merch as possible and repackage it to try and pass of as something fresh and interesting?

    I had a dream last night that I found a rerelease of Animated Activators Bumblebee as part of this line... as well as Ryuko and Satsuki from Kill La Kill for some reason (also as part of the line for some reason?)

    The problem is I also don't have a lot of money, which the Takara release is gonna cost more of than the domestic. Also this is exactly the sort of thing I shouldn't have to be having these kinds of absurd problems with. And I do mean absurd. Netflix Bee is actually currently avaliable on Wal-Mart's site. For 50$! As best I can tell fufilled by Wal-Mart themselves. Now it would be great if I could stake out a bunch of Wal-Marts every day. But sadly pandemic, live with an at risk person, 40 minute round trip to the nearest one, so I can't. This has been getting extremely frustrated.
    Well we'll be getting a RED Bumblebee, so it's basically an better Action Master. If I can't get Netflix Bumblebee, I might break my usual rule of not getting non transforming transformers for that one, just to have a decent bumblebee.
