    I thought I'd start a new thread just to talk about the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line at target, which at this point has released (I believe) three original sets, and a good handful of re-issues.

    Since the line was first announced, I've been very curious about what figures it would end up including, be that reissues or new molds. And one thing that's caught my eye with the Origin Bee box is the inclusion of the Marvel Comics Bumblebee in the collage.

    Which makes me wonder if we might see either a new mold or a repaint released in the line, designed to match the comics?

    Would love to hear your expectations about the future of the line!

    First off, just realized I made this in the wrong forum? oops

    Second, I agree that Cybertron Wheeljack is a MUST now! Although I'm not sure how it would fit this line unless they packaged it with something.

    I like to imagine Origin Bumblebee becoming so saught-after will inspire Hasbro to roll the dice with that idea.

    Siege dropped the ball so damn hard by omitting the only 3 autobots that actually had cybertronion alt modes.

    Guessing we will see a Barricade and Bumblebee two pack using the headswapped, but otherwise unaltered, Earthrise Cliffjumper mold in a deco evoking Witwicky Trilogy Bumblebee. Barricade would probably be a Selects/Galactic Oddessy Barricade with minor deco changes as well.

    I want the origins bumblebee, but I don't know if I even have a chance at seeing him, I've only seen the Megatron and Optimus sets at mine.

    For one, I’m predicting every SS Bumblebee from now on will go here first before then getting an exact release in SS because $$$

    If I can get a second chance at the Earthrise Netflix mold I don't care what label it falls under.

    The Origins Bee looks a bit too kibble to me, but maybe if I find one in the wild...

    You see, personally, I wasn't too wild about the Walmart Bumblebee figure. I just never liked the Cliffjumper mold I guess, it's too partsformy to me. But I'm glad to have one, And I'd get another if they did it in different colors or something.

    My predictions:
    -Rescue Bots gets at least a little representation, maybe a two-pack with a RB Bee and Optimus

    -NuRID Bee and Steeljaw 2-pack

    -At least two more figures that make use of the stealth Bee color scheme not counting the High Octane figure

    -Since crash combiners are being brought in, I would also expect the energon armor sets again too.

    -Ultra Bee Combiner reissue

    This isn't a wishlist, but it is surprising there isnt a bit more Aligned representation

    I say give it a month. I think he’s supposed to be stocked on the 11th. I would be surprised if he’s not available online eventually

    There were at least a dozen at mine. I think they're going to flood the shelves.
