    Alright, it\'s official, this line is just hasbro\'s shelf warmer graveyard, the bee/spike 2-pack was just either an attempt to sell the line or just a cancelled bee that was gonna be in WFC.

    I'm certain they do, however the issue is more the expenses needed to produce a toy from that era. Simply put that was a time before cut corners, so production- even on an existing mould -is likely prohibitively expensive.

    Since evidently Hasbro misses the 2011 Beehive of DOTM and Prime, I hope they could at least consider reissuing a bee we actually like:

    To be fair, there isn't a kiddy gimmick line at the moment for the young fans. Kids like a nice big chunky easy to transform Bumblebee from the films just to bash around and play with. Cyberverse is on the way out (and the current figures are getting more Generations-like) so this will replace that.
    Also, I wonder if a lot of children won't accept Bee's G1 look and want toys to look like the Movie one?

    (Am I really trying to defend this thing!? World's gone mad!)

    Feels like an experimental test market to gauge his popularity. Or Hasbro still has many overly mass produced Bees that they rather repackage for thier intended profits without having to submit them to discount chains.

    Again, Hasbro does not literally "repack" already produced toys and then sell them in new packaging. Financially, it'd be more feasible to send existing stock to discounters in its existing packaging. Actually removing toys from their existing packaging and then putting them in new packaging is an absurd myth that needs to die.

    All these "Buzzworthy Bumblebee" products we have seen are new production runs.

    If they can use this line to reissue Prime first edition bee or to have a non-gold western release of that Animated bumblebee that was Takara exclusive,


    Then they'll have my attention
