    I like some of the stuff by igear, but that Bumblebee mold... Just looks too ridiculous... In my opinion.

    As a fan of Glyph and Tap-Out, the alt. Mode actually tempts me. But the robot mode ruined it, as the proprotions are even worse than the official Legends BB.

    Hence, I was, and still am, a hater of iGear, and even though I gave this an objective chance, it won't be my first iGear product.

    Not a fan, it just reminds me that I don't have that weird cancelled blue classic Bumblebee repaint and that makes me sad.

    Seriously, if a third-party company is already going to rip off a design, why not put in the effort to at least improve on the design? Legends Bumblebee is hardly one of the best Legends molds, different altmode or not.

    You can do better, iGear.

    I got the Yellow and Red versions. I like the Legengs BB mold very much but had always wanted a VW version, so the yellow one is perfect for my Classics shelf and the red one for my Pre-TF shelf. Though my aethetic tastes are notoriously at odds with the broader fandom.

    If I didn't already have a real Glyph I'd be very interested in this version too, but for now I'll pass on this variant.

    Probably, but don't let that stop you. xD

    It's like IGear is trying to annoy Has/Tak at this point. Especially since the real mold was JUST re-released recently under the RtS line. It's still ugly too. Barely worth five or so for a legends. Definitely not worth third party pricing.

    OK I see, but you can't blame me for asking - "I got" usually means to have possesion, I'm getting would of been right, anyway, I'm no Grammar Nazi I am just a Huge Bee fan, If he got them early then I'd love to know how :)  I have been Constantly emailing IGEAR about when will they Release the gold one, I posted this Glyph find earlier today, I've even messed around changing item numbers in IGEARS url in case it's hidden etc, They shoulda released the blue and gold at the same time and do a doublepack again. They need to make a Bugbite too. I am a fan of this mould and don't get all the damn whining, takara would never of given us a VW so I am grateful at IGEAR, What do you think?
