    Looks great, glad of the black windows. I think I need to see him in profile to gauge whether he has the requisite roundness.

    FINALLY! A good looking CHUG G1 Bumblebee!

    I’m honestly so glad they made him with the penny racer car mode because if he was a regular Beetle he would look bloated like ever other G1 Bee before him.


    My only complaint is that he’s not smiling.

    Definitely getting this. I’ll figure out what to do with my other Bumblebees later. It’ll be really cool having BB and Cliffjumper as entirely distinct molds.

    Edit: Also! Mass retail G1 Bumblebee! Thank god!!!!!!

    Hopefully this time they finally use one of these molds to partial into a Bumper release.

    Yup, we'll get a Cliffjumper out of this for sure.

    Maybe we'll finally get Glyph and Tap-Out as well.

    It's cute, and it'll be the best way to get a Bumblebee in his traditional alt mode.

    I don't have a need for another G1-adjacent Bumblebee figure, but I'm glad to see the black painted windows; if translucent plastic windows really have to go away, then I hope this becomes the norm, instead of the solid, light blue ones.

    I'll take a Glyph, and/or Tap-Out redeco, though.

    I honestly like the vehicle mode looking somewhat compacted like the original toy.
