    This one looks to be a sleeper I haven’t seen much talk about. KBB did a bit beyond upscaling the figure by making the feet less hollow, making the door pivot panel yellow, and giving this one rolling wheels.

    I don’t have NewAge Flipper but I think that has painted hands that can chip? These hands are on a pivot and molded in black plastic.

    He’s definitely a chubby Bumblebee.

    I managed to get him $10 shipped with a coupon and it’s going for $13 shipped a lot of places so he’s a decent Pat Lee Bumblebee for pretty close to the price of a CHUG Legends.

    Why would Bumblebee be a deluxe?

    Why wouldn't he be? There's been plenty of Bees in all manner of scales.

    Makes me want to re-acquire that TR legends Bee. It looks better with those Siege figures.

    That head is the best bumblebee sculpt I’ve seen, a shame it isn’t used more. Not terribly faithful to the toon but definitely evokes mu impression of him.

    OK, I don't have any of the figures it is compared to in pics. Sizing is such a difficulty with Transformers.
    BUT seems it is not as big as Classics Bumblebee?? Because that thing is the same size as MP Bumblebee.
    Then Bellpeppers is right - that's too bad. That means it's not CHUG, wont work with MP, what scale is it supposed to be? Siege scale? - the new tiny stuff with minibots as Legends - I have no contact with that line.
    I guess I'll see other comparison photos soon enough. If it were the size of Classics Bumblebee I'd buy it in a heartbeat. If for nothing else - to have a MP Bee that isn't orange.
