My thoughts as well, even though I know Camera flash will tell you just how different colors are.
It doesn't tell you the degree.

I'm still on the fence.

The yellows don't bother me too much. After seing the size comparisons this is officially on my radar. But there's so much cool shit coming out that it'll just have to wait.

So this little bugger has been pushed back a few weeks then!

I wonder if they are tweaking the colours of just issues with distribution?

Poor old Bumblebee just doesnt seem to have much luck does he? ;)

It does not look like it but I think his vehicle form compensates for it. It looks absolutely amazing.

According to Chimungmung, there's more delays for the release of the figure.

Good times, a figure you have to take half way apart to make him look decent.

This figure is awesome !!! I dont agree with all the nit-picking going on. The bottom line is Bumblebee doesnt have to be a stupid Honda anymore and Cliffjumper finally gets his own mold instead of just being a repaint. That kicks ass in my book !!!

Heres some pics...

Now this little guy is in hand, seeing him alongside his comrades, hes looking pretty sweet! ;)

I wonder if they will consider doing a re-shell of any of the other minibots, such as Searchlight or Cliffjumper? :-?

The Hasbro version of the mold works quite well for Cliffjumper compared to his G1 alt mode. Id rather see a blue version made as Glyph. Or a green one as Tap Out.

What was the point of doing this figure if you make the kibble bigger? No thanks. Hasbro/Takara did Bee some decent justice the first time around.

Agreed. I would have had more respect for Art Feather if they had gone with their own original mould instead of KOing Hasbro and exacerbating existing kibble problems by shoehorning a different bodyshell onto it. It also looks like the torso is elongated, giving Bumblebee odd proportions, and making him bigger than Cliffjumper. I wonder if this is on VW's radar as well, who are famously sensitive about their products being associated with war - a link they have been disassociating themselves with since WWII.
