    I want an update on the helicopter pack to be able to go on Bumblebee's car roof so we can have a derpy helicopter mode.

    For the second wave of Deluxes I would say Bumblebee (with Helicopter pack hopefully), A Modulator (like Greasepit or Airwave), Tracks (we got Wheeljack so it's probable), and Lockdown (a good introduction to the Mercenaries, a cool muscle car and a mean looking robot mode).

    The 5.5” Furai model kit is kind of exactly that.

    He’s a non-transforming action figure Bumblebee with a jetpack. You do have to assemble him but I feel like if you used sturdy enough glue, he’s essentially already there.

    I would not object to a Cybertronian Bumblebee who gets a Furai style helicopter pack that forms the wings of his saucer with the helicopter blades attaching to his bottom as landing gear.

    I'd like that Cybertronian Bumblebee idea to happen. I have a soft spot for the original WFC Generations Bumblebee, due to him being one of the first figures I bought with my own money. I was like 8 or 9 at the time, and I still hold him dear to my heart in all his floppy glory. Just have to find his blaster and he'll be almost as a good as new.

    Maybe the new Bumblebee could differentiate from the Cliffjumper by being more Bumblebee movie inspired, front of the car as the chest and door wings, as well as a G1 toy head, not saying it's what they'll do or even that it's my favorite idea, just a thought.

    Given wfc is highly sunbow referential I’d say that has a 0% chance of happening

    Considering that they're not going to share a mold in ER, I doubt that differentiating them will be all that hard.

    You're right, he's a sacred relic. What about we pull a stinging insect move and call him Hornet? Of course his vehicle mode would have to be inspired by a Hudson Hornet.

    Why continue conflating "antagonist" with "Decepticon"? That's the only reason that Hasbro related Stinger with Decepticons. Unless we're talking about a different Stinger.

    Although I do support G1 Stinger drones being released under WFC.
