    Bumblebee is honestly pretty good except I don’t like the gun but that’s it, can’t wait for cliffjumper

    Huh. Your front page says I can still secure my copy yet pretty much all your sponsors are sold out on preorder. May want to tweak that front page a bit.

    Think I'll wait for the inevitable Cliffjumper retool. The car has more Cliffjumper cues than Bumblebee's Volkswagon.

    That sample is cool and all but what I'm looking at is the gray on TFOne Optimus. It could just be the lighting, but this looks so much better and I hope this is what they go with.

    What if... they made the Netflix Bee orange because they knew a yellow version would be too definitive, and they wouldn't be able to sell you new versions like this in the future?

    Bee is looking pretty good IMHO properly transformed. Nice to see his feet seem to have both tilting and hinging forward and back. Has better proportions than the Netflix version.

    I like it - the transformation reminds me of MP-21 Bumblebee. I think I\'ll get the MP-21 version though since I like the VW alt mode on that more than the animation version.

    I love the bot mode but they should just re-released the netflix one. I just dont care for that chibi look in his vehicle mode.

    Honestly speaking here. I\'m a little upset that I thought dude said Bumblebee wasn\'t going to be available to preorder until July. Then I see all the sponsors were sold out. Lost my shot again. Hasbro is just dropping the ball to much.

    It isn't sadly. They un-silvered the smokestacks and made them a beige color. What we saw in the stock pics is the final version.
