    I also would put Generations T 30 Nightbeat in the sexy car stakes if he were fortunate enough to have had a prime trilogy exclusive style improvement on his shonky paint job. 2017-09-15-23-40-03.jpg

    I have, in my life, only bought a double of a figure I own four time. And by double I don't mean 'Oh, its a repaint as a different character'. I mean same character, same mold, maybe a slightly different paint job.

    The first two were movie figures: a new Dunerunner because the original's leg shattered and that is the mold for Baby Clouder in my comic, and a movie human alliance jeep as one was repainted to be War for Cybertron Hound.

    The other two? CHUG Jazz when I sold my original and years later realized how dumb I was...

    ...and last week it was CHUG Deluxe Bumblebee because I had the original Yellow and White one but I painted the white to a black and wanted an official black and yellow Bee. And I don't regret it at all because CHUG Jazz and Bee are two of the funnest molds ever made.

    Easily two of the best Deluxes ever. Much as I like Classics Prime, I’d argue Classics Bumblebee was the best mold of the original Classics run. He’s like a mini-Alternator with the full interior and his transformation is so intuitive and smooth. And he still has the best Head sculpt ‘Bee’s ever gotten.

    And basically all the same could be said for Jazz (although I don’t believe he had a fully sculpted interior)

    He didn't but I love the transforming gun and the speakers.

    I gave Bee Chromia's gun which works perfect for him and it can store inside him lying on the seats.

    I like and appreciate a mix. It's fun to have sime figs that are a 3d puzzle. Very tactilely satisfiying to transform. It's also fun to have the simple ones. Actually what I like the best are the elegant/imagineative transformations. TR triggerhappy had a waist transform did so many things with so little.

    My wife finds gerwalk modes really disturbing, so I did the obvious thing a few years ago and did all the gerwalks I could manage. Her reaction was actually pretty great. I was just starting my collection then, so the gerwalk party would be a lot more impressive/abominable now.

    Oh my God, this new scale makes me want to keep Universe Ratchet and throw out the Datsuns. Everything I know is wrong.
