    Nah, the G1 Bumblebee toy had two independently moveable legs (albeit only to slot into and out of his body during transformation), but that still meant two ankles.
    That was one of my thoughts too. The other was perhaps for some kind of lighting reference for CGI.

    I still have my fingers crossed that Starcream will get a better robot mode, even if his alt mode stays the same.

    Never owned Bumblebee or Cliffjumper did you? :) 

    He had two independent legs, though you can certainly be forgiven for thinking otherwise, because after the first wave of Minibots, Transformers pretty much did away with any need for having two distinct feet. If Bumblebee had been made a year later, he probably would have been that much lamer. And a year or so after that, we get Goldbug as a Throttlebot.. hard to get worse than that!

    Kind of sad how TF evolution in G1 was mostly a downward spiral...

    I'm holding G2 'Bee in my hands right now. He's got two legs, two feet, and one ankle. Unless you've got some magic Bumblebee, or a saw, his feet may as well be one.

    I need a picture then, because I can't find a single scrap of evidence that shows him with independent legs.

    Save it! It's a variant mutant!

    (But with one of those sucky mutations, that makes it worse than usual. :)  )

    I've got a Red Bumblebee and a Yellow Cliffjumper, and both of them can extend their legs separately too. It seems like Hubcap is the same, so I think all the versions of that design have the separate legs+feet.

    Maybe yours is a KO version from way back with simplified foot articulation?

    Maybe G2 locked the feet together? They did alter some molds for the release.
