    Its hard to imagine that there was a time where Bumblebee wasn't the token shelfwarmer he's
    now been renown for since the launch of the 3rd movie's toyline. No in fact he was considered one
    of the harder figures to get ahold of, though the same could be said about nearly every movie figure
    that came out at the time. Thoughout the years I've acquired over hundreds of figures, however I
    remember this figure being the second one I bought and while it definitely shows its age when
    compared to it newer counterpoints it still has its good points and it was what got me started into
    collecting.

    That's really nice and old skool! I remember tooling this one and painting it only to see that better Bumblebees were produced! Nice painting there. It could use a litle more layering of colors though.

    Yeah I guess it could, however this isn't my favorite of the Bumblebee molds, which is funny since I have 2 more of the buggers, the premium I got from a 3 pack and the Allspark Cliffjumper whom never seemed to ever get a new movie figure.
