    The box under the Clunker Bee vs Barricade mentions the assortment is a 4 pack, is this first case just 2 of Clunker Bee v Barricade and HO Bee v Stinger? I remember hearing that Offroad Bee vs Blitzwing was rumored, is there maybe a 4th set?

    I hope that repack of the old AOE high octane Bee wasn’t Hasbro’s solution, as opposed to a new high octane Bee using the SS-49 mold..that’d be super disappointing if so

    Thanks! Here are some pics. Sorry for the volume, had a bit of fun with the crew as well.

    Here are better pics. Really happy with my progress with this one. I managed to somewhat replicate the stock green dry brush but got buried in the layers of paint anyway.

    Thanks for this info, it really sets my expectations once I get into getting these guys!!

    I honestly don't think that the lack of articulation will bother me. Just the pure awesomeness, and the massive size of this thing is more than good enough to get him!!
    Good luck bro.. not only for your wallet, but your shelf space to lol.
    While I haven't worked for a company like Hasbro, I've worked for Cingular Wireless/ATT, BCBS, Highmark and UHC, and I can tell you that all those companies, at the very least, planned 5 years ahead.

    With the competition that Hasbro has, I'm certain that they're not just planning 3 months ahead. Not in this day and age.
    For me this doesn't say that they're not working together. It just means that they grabbed some cash with the MTB line, bfr releasing the SS line.

    I'm sure that most of us here got into MTB bots, just to be like "awe fuck" when the SS line came out.
    Seriously?? Why?? Lol

    I kinda want the HO Bumblebee. Never owned that mold and getting SS Stinger is a plus too. How does HO Bee look with other SS figures?

    What’s funny is I’m interested in that two pack for stinger and Bumblebee’s altmode, but it’s AOE era figure so I’m .... iffy to say the least.

    I never owned the HO Bee, but from everything I've seen on him, he's pretty solid.

    Plastic on the original feels kind of thin, but hasn't broken on me yet.

    I'm honestly really not a fan of it, but it does look nice in alt mode.

    Have there been any reports on the plastic breaking on some of the copies?

    Not really sure but I just know from experience that I hate touching my AOE figures because they feel like KO’s. The plastic in 2014 was super cheap feeling.

    We're definitely going to need Hasbro to make that handsome green creature in the bottom corner of the photo.

    Looks like the info I had was outdated and there is indeed a 3rd set in the case assortment.

    So I wonder which set got double packed?
