    Hmm. This is either a semi-spoiler or a poor choice in alt-mode. Haha

    That's...actually kind of cool. Also, for $10? That's a freaking steal.

    I hope this appears in UK retail as i really want it . 
    Charlie is already my favourite movie human and I have only seen the trailer .
    I\'d really like a Beatle Charlie combo though .

    Well, now we know what all of those square holes near the bottom of his vehicle mode are for. I thought it was just Hasbro being cheap, but no. I was wrong, I'll admit it. I have to give them credit for taking the extra step and making this a really nice box set. Even the paint apps on Charlie look pretty good for such a small figurine.

    I'm really impressed. The stickers are pretty cool, as well.

    They continue to surprise me. More of this, less of the unpleasantness.

    I think I might pass on this it looks cool but I don’t think I want to customize bumble bee in his car mode, probably more of his robot mode which would look awesome but it’s fine either way

    The lack of Silver paint is meant to evoke his stripe-less appearance in the prequel movie.

    10.00 is what it SHOULD be....but it\'ll probably be 45.00 the way things are now.

    It looks pretty cool. It’s almost too bad that it doesn’t transform with the additional pieces, though.

    Same here. It's a good mold, thankfully, and the new parts give it a ton of personality. To Target!

    thanks for posting the sticker sheet. I like the black racing stripes set myself. don't much care for the blue ones. but at the same time id almost be tempted to wait until the movie comes out, see how he looks on screen first..

    Might get this mold after all...for car mode only. The upgrade thing is cool, but lack of functionality in robot mode (some parts not all) is disappointing. Depends on how much it actually costs, too.

    We'll see.

    Sucks I already checked Target, and Walmart this morning, nothing. On a quick Tangent, has Walmart given up on Toys, because it looks completely empty in almost every Toy section, in every Walmart?

    But I'm kind of torn on this:
    1. I already have this toy, and I don't transform him, it is a bad toy.
    2. All of these accessories are build around his Vehicle Mode, aka the only tolerable mode.
    3. I like the accessories, I like the Human, but like the POTP SDCC Primal, the Accessories are the only things that interest me. (Not the stickers, Hasbro's been bad with them, but it is good that there not pre applied)

    Honestly, If I knew about this set before I bought the regular one, I would have bought this one, but Hasbro your stealing sales from yourselves, as well a disappointing your customers by withholding details.

    I'm kinda hesitant with what I should buy from Hasbro now, I wonder what other toys will get a accessory set now, after I buy the first version. Yes this is very similar the Store Exclusive everything from Toys, Pre-orders, Movie Bonuses, and etc.

    *Looks at receipt in picture... Does that say $9.99?

    That would be funny if Bee eventually has a fallout with Charlie and ends up hating everything about his ‘80s experience. It seems possible, especially with the way he hits the VW with his Camaro door in ‘07. Like “Ugh, don’t even remind me.”
