    Does anyone know why in the 4th or 5th movie in one of the scenes bumblebee has dry bones powers?

    1. Bay probably thought it was cool
    2. He and the writers didn't care enough to explain it

    I honestly feel like the first half of TLK and the second half were just stuck together. There's so much cool stuff in the first part that just gets dropped and the rest of the movie just hangs on the greatness of Cog like a thin thread begging for death.

    If you mean the scene at the beginning of TLK where he fights Lennox's crew it struck me as being an extension of the transformium concept from AOE. Like maybe the Autobots had integrated it and could now operate like Galvatron ie. splitting apart rather than direct transformation. But then they never do it again and it's never mentioned so. Maybe we're just supposed to assume this is something Transformers can do like that guy with the hermit crab head from Pirates of the Caribbean.

    He does it again after the Nemesis Prime scene to put together his arm and wings.

    Been trying to put him together while working at the same time lol. 20210430_151044.jpg 20210430_151251.jpg 20210430_152003.jpg
    He looks great, but the plastic for ther kit is super fragile. A lot of the pieces don't tab in securely, and the ankle joints that come with the new feet isn't ratcheted, so he leans backwards.

    I'm gonna tighten up some of the pieces, and post better pics later.

    If you had a choice to get either HFTD battle blade bumblebee or ROTF human alliance bumblebee for $35, which would you get?

    Looks imposing, the fragile plastic sounds scary to handle.

    The bike sisters together on that shelf looks cute by the way.

    It's unfortunate to hear that the plastic is fragile. That was a major complaint on their Transformers Prime Optimus Prime figure. People got him out of package with pieces snapped off. It didn't help that just just used a clamshell to package the figure.

    I hope this kit doesn't have similar breakages.

    Thank you both! Will do, @NemesisJazz!

    Picked up B-127 today! It’s pretty cool, the design feels very WFC/FOC.

    I also got a blue paint that I’d like to use on Topspin! Not sure if Topspin is next, but it will be sometime soon.

    Battle Blades Bee for sure!! He's way more accurate, as well as more poseable!! Add some paint to him, and you'll have an awesome looking Bee!!

    Thank you :) ! I decided that I didn't wanna pose them with my ROTF cast, so that's where they ended up lol.
    To be fair, once the pieces are on Prime the kit doesn't feel too bad. The scary part is trying to snap the pieces in place, because you have to apply some pressure to them. And if you do it the wrong way, they'll just snap.

    Honestly though, the DNA Design kit is made of much better plastic!!

    They also gave me 2 left shoulder armor pieces, but I shaved some of the plastic off on one of them, and it's barely noticeable, so I'm good with that.

    I stated previously that the new ankle joints are ratcheted, but that's incorrect. They are ratcheted, but they're soft ratchets that just aren't cutting it.

    I didn't know that company had an OP though. I'm gonna go check him out now.. just out of curiosity.

    Hey guys, what is the consensus on the Buzzworthy Camaro Bee? Which movie is it from? I passed on him because i missed the part where the front of the car got a facelift. I passed on this guy multiple times and now i cant find him.
