    Mmm... Mixed feelings on this one.

    I like the accurate leg sculpt, and I would like to have all the ROTF leaders, but I already have deluxe bumblebee and HA bumblebee, and this just seems silly. A pass for me.

    looks pretty good, and pretty accurate too!! the only thing really out of place are the tires on the feet, and the doors look to be too spread out on his back, but other then those, he looks nice! I really love that they didn't go crazy with stupid colored plastics either, they kept him nice and close to his movie colors.

    I really like hte design of the upper legs with the hydrolics connecting to his waiste, the entire body design flows really nice. The chest could have been a little more complicated though, pretty basic, considering, but oh well.

    I would have preferred a Grindor, but I'm cool with the Bee too.

    Maybe now we'll see an Ultimate Optimus Prime?

    If by any chance there will be a second supreme class ROTF figure, then DAMMIT I hope it's Grindor! Then fans can get all the forest fight characters and make a neat diorama. Personally, Blackout/Grindor's designs are my favorite and they deserve more than just two size classes.

    Quite possibly the best argument I've seen on here for why this probably isn't fake.

    There certainly are people out there who COULD pull this off in photoshop (although most of them get paid a lot of money and have better things to do with their time than this), but the background counters that pretty well.

    Fake or not...there will be a leader class BB eventually. Hasbro just has to release one...

    Not that I'm for it or anything.

    HELL NO.

    This is RIDICULOUS. The Fallen deserves a Leader Class, or Grindor. GODDAMN IT.

    I know what I'll be asking at the next Hasbro Q&A.

    "Why da frick did you make a Leader Class Bumblebee?!?!?

    Wow, this Bumblebee looks really movie accurate. Too bad it will be completely out of scale with everything else in the ROTF line. Except maybe legends Wheelie. I'll probably get it, but I'm disappointed Hasbro chose the easy way out and didn't do a character who size wize would benefit from the leader class, like the Fallen (who, as the titluar character, we only have one mold of, a mold that's out of scale with the character he actually fought), or even Blackout/Grindor. Heck, even though a leader Ironhide would still be out of scale, he'd be much closer to scale with Bumblebee. Hasbro seemed to be making a solid attempt at scale this time around, up to this point. But seriously, the title character of the movie only gets one toy, one that's miscolored, not very movie accurate, and smaller than the characters he interacted with?
