    I hope all the original movie bots get the same treatment and keep their old alt forms so I can easily pass and maybe just buy the new guys. I like to have the full cast but I might just stick to the new guys and just the A-bots this time

    The Head looks a bit big on this even though it seems more accurate

    Kinda hoping they make a new Ironhide, more bulky, and accurate, the first was just too ehhhh, I want Ironhide to be as accurate as possible, becuase hell he was my favourite autobot.

    Easy pass for me. Other than a few retools, it nearly looks identical to the '08 BB. So, if people were unable to get it the first time around, I feel that this is a good substitute.

    i told myself i was not going to buy any of the new movie toys, mostly because I just like to focus on one toy line at a time and it can be other then TFs so Ive got the original movie line going as well as the 3" titaniums going....but im finding myself kinda wanting this one....and maybe the devastator pieces for ROTF.....this blows lol

    Just to add to what a few people have already said: I personally feel that a slightly amended rerelease of this sort is actually the best route Hasbro could have taken on this. As they themselves said, fans/parents of fans of the first movie's toys were never likely to want or appreciate having to buy a ton of new versions of the same characters from the first film, but on the other hand it's equally ridiculous to expect that they'd just omit the likes of Bumblebee and Optimus Prime from the RotF toyline on the grounds that they'd "already been done". Releasing minor upgrades such as this will cater to fans of the new movie and collectors who did want to see new versions of the core cast, without making the owners of the original movie toys feel like they're particularly obliged to buy them. I, for example, never got a '08 Camaro Bumblebee last time round, so I'll be picking this new one up when it hits; on the other hand, I'm more than happy with my existing Ironhide and Ratchet, so I'm OK with skipping whatever new variants of those they release...

    The head-sculpt's a LOT better. Since I couldn't get the first '08 'Bee, might as well get this one when it comes out.

    Plus, why reinvent the wheel? That Bumblebee mold is simply phenominal. A great mold indeed which was very accurate to the CGI model (or as accurate as a toy allows)

    I hope that we get a new Leader-class Prime though which is more accurate and isn't too hampered by gimmicks (not saying the first one was, but I have a reason to be concerned about the second for spoilerish reasons)

    If it don't want him then don't get him.
    Pretty simple.

    I´m gonna buy it on the head alone. But it´s a shame that the old weapon looks more show accurate than the new one.
