    I like it and hate it at the same time... I mean.. seriously, why can't they just stay the same? Toy sales? I understand the idea of progression and evolution of the characters, BUT they can still remain the same and still evolve without changing the appearance of the car... on the other hand, that things really is way hot.

    Those guys that bought the Bumblebee Camaros are probably all calling body shops now. :lol

    Tamed Look

    'Bee looks tamed down in this version...He looked more rugged in ROTF with the black accentuation....and the GT spoiler looks bad on the rear as well...but anyhow, Go 'Bee!!!!!

    Suddenly I really want a movie character like the Dropkick toy, with a faction logo covering the entire surface of the vehicle. :)

    Welll... with all those new modifications, bumblebee now looks more like a D1 drift racer. Pretty cool looks by adding just the Carbon fiber spoiler.... uhm... does that one become a sword by any chance when in robot mode?

    WOW... That looks...UTTERLY THE SAME DARN CAMARO CAR to me!

    An upgrade should be like from the old VW Bug to the new VW bug or the 1970 Camaro to the 2007 one, not such minor cosmetical changes. Because, you know, the new TF3 BB Toy will still be almost identical to the ROTF and 2007 versions, and even parents who bought ROTF BB for their complaining children will say "Enough!" to the request for the upteenth version of the same character.

    Movie BB became one of the most over-hyped and forced-down-our-throats character ever, with Bayformer Prime close as a second. You know, I recall that during G1 we had a grand total of 4 Bumblebee toys (if you count Goldbug) during the 7 years of G1. Now, we had like 30 verions of BB. Transformers became like X-Men/Spiderman/DC Animated toys, who quickly turned me off even as a kid with them releasing the same character over and over with added stupid gimmicks (I'm looking at you, Capture Claw Batman).

    Aaaaand I'd still rather spend my hard earned money of a Ford Falcon GT, more accurately, the new Supercharged one with the Coyote engine. Although to be fair, adding a tiny rear spoiler hardly deserves it being called 'rice'.

    Wouldn't mind seeing the upgrades they plan for Optimus Prime though, those could have actual ramifications for the character.

    Its growing on me but it looks less like a concept Camaro and more like the production Camaro. Regardless, i'm still very excited!

    absolutely agree with you there (I guess the reason they change is to sell more toys?)

    I like it and dislike it... I wish they would stop "re-formatting" Bumblebee, and just leave him as the same car for once. But at the same time, they could've done a worse job re-designing the car.

    I like the spoiler, wheels, side mirrors, and Autobot logo on the side. I'm not sure yet on the rest, if I like it. I think if they left the TF2 front end and added everything else, I would like it a lot more, but the new front end is not my favorite part of the car.

    I agree and I wish Bumblebee what a Dodge Charge with the SRT8 Hemi Engine (425hp :drool: ). Well I guess if that was true the decepticons might actually have a problem worth considering :wink:

    I personally love the new version of 'Bee. This is actually the first time an actual production Camaro has been used for the car. In both TF1 and TF2 it was a GTO frame that was modified with one off bodywork more or less, which as far as I know Steve Saleen did Bumblebeee in TF1. I'm not sure who did the bodywork in TF2.

    And I'm not understand how people are calling this new version a "ricer", there is nothing "rice" about this car. The only knock I have are the widely spaced stipes...

    I saw this over at seibertron.com...I really don't like the wider stripes, or the spoiler...IMO, they just fucked with a good thing.

    I did some parts swapping a while back with my Nest BB and my TFTM Battle Dammage BB.
