    LOL. It's like getting invited to an awesome BBQ with really good food and then complaining that they served pink lemonade instead of regular lemonade.

    I always find these funny how all that space is wasted on the boxes. Worst offenders are definitely the WFC scale tiny Leaders. I would bet they could easily fit 2 Astrotrains on that huge ass boxx. Goes to show how Hasbro's environmental iniatiatives are just corporate propaganda (and we don't even have to mention the whole NFT BS...)

    I mean, you do realize it's costlier for Hasbro to use custom shaped boxes for every figure. A company can have environmental initiatives but also have to make compromises in order to save money. It's not an all or nothing solution. It's not like if you are not 1000% environmental then you must not care.

    Looks amazing. Just like in the G1 toon! Weird that we did not get him in Siege.
    Remember this clunker? Was more than a decade ago and I was so sad this never happened... well, we got a better Arcee, TWW Bee and Cosmos since then, by now. :)  (And besides, would have been floppy diecast like all Titaniums)

    Btw is that the same jetpack that came with the Centurion pack?
    I at first thought those were rockets and he has some launching mechanism before I realized those are the weird energy rod thingies.
    Now if we could also get Wheeljack in Cybertronian form...

    A little kibble-y, but it\'s a small price to pay for G1 Cybertronian Bumblebee.

    This is cool and I will get it. I just hope it scales with WFC Bee and Cliffjumper. The last Buzzworthy Bee with the Spike figure was too damn small.

    I like it! The robot mode is definitely very clunky and dripping with kibble, but this is more of a gimmick figure to me, that gimmick being "hey look we actually made a figure of Bumblebee that turns into a saucer, while still having the Volkswagen bits in robot mode like the show!"

    The Energon rods are the main thing I'm after here though. This is gonna be a fun set overall, but hopefully it won't be to hard to track down.

    I know that however, I believe they could have significantly reduced the size of their packaging when they reset their scale. Takara Legends figures used to have really space efficient boxes. Yes, they were packaged in alt mode, but they took a lot less space and thus used less cardboard. Maybe they explored the option but it wasn't viable.

    I mean, I'm all for them reducing the plastic they used on their packaging, but when that effort seems countered by other stuff they do, it makes their iniatiatives seem insincere.

    Is it just me, or does this look like how Bumblebee actually looked in the Netflix series? Either way, I\'m pretty excited for this; my only real gripe is that it\'s gonna be another exclusive Bumblebee that I won\'t find at any store I\'m near.

    Well now, I've been mostly ignoring the Buzzworthy stuff, but this guy's a definite must have for me, the one, true, original Bumblebee. I like the jet pack as well, but is there any way of carrying the energon rods in either of his modes?

    And maybe there's hope for original mode Wheeljack, too.

    Yeah, I hope this gets remolds or something like that; it seems like it’s gonna be a pretty good figure. I’m excited for it.
    (Also, unrelated, but I’m really digging your profile pic :) .)

    “Prime told me there’d be days like this”
