    Wow, Blackout looks... bad.
    How is this one screen accurate?

    Bumblebee looks really good, though. Kind of nice, even.

    Bumblebee is very nicely done, blackout looks like he's under water. :/

    I do agree that Blackout looks really bad, but where does it say this is more screen accurate? I'm pretty sure it's just a random variant.

    I like that they've added paint scuffing on Battle Damaged Bumblebee. It's much better than the "dirt" smears we've gotten in the past.

    That should have been the first SS Bumblebee released.

    I was just wondering how this fits in with the screen-accuracy the SS line seems to be going for. Even though Grinder was a different helicopter, I was kind of expecting them to milk the mold with a light gray repaint, not a Mariana Trench version.

    60F124A1-32C4-44FF-9529-E0F6847855F4.jpeg Wasn’t there a really blue blackout clone in the DOTM trailer scene where prime swoops in also there was a brownish brawl I remember reading and seeing this some where that’s what this repaint reminds me of. Edit and I found the photo I know it probably means nothing and is probably reaching

    Oh no, don't worry, we'll still be getting that Grindor repaint for sure. Since this is so limited, they probably didn't want to waste the Grindor name just yet.

    Could the news staff or mods help change the thread title to "Studio Series Rusty Bumblebee and Camo Blackout". Thanks.

    You know, I didn't notice it until just now, but the normal SS Bumblebee is way too squeaky clean and should have looked like this from the get-go. Kinda wish it showed up a little better on the robot mode, but that's still a damn pretty vehicle mode and I hope it works its way over here soon.

    Won't double dip on that completely shit BB mold, but I agree with everyone who said that this should have been the first release.

    I for one really like Blackout’s weird colors. I think it looks cool.
