TF4: BumbleBee toy overload again?

Weapon: Dual Photon Launchers
With the sightings of three different BumbleBees (60s camaro, movie 1-3 and TF4 facelift/new camaro) on set of the new movie. I'm taking an educated guess to say that we will be seeing a shed load of yellow on shelves next year when the movie comes out.

With all the different class sizes etc do you think Hasbro will try and milk the 1-3 movie car/mold again (huge amount of different deluxe molds)? As well as doing new molds for the 60s and new camaro?

Personally I'd love the 60s camaro in a Human Alliance class size :x

Oh, I'm sure we'll have a flood of more bees. Given the stuff coming out, the amount of releases of that character aren't slowing down.

What we can hope for is the continued more appropriate case ratios. No more 5 Bumblebees in a case of 8 figures kind of stuff.

That's all I want to see too. Sure there will be Bumblebees, a veritable hive of them, and there's not much we can do about them. I just want to see them in moderation; no more than 2 per case of 8 would be sufficient IMO.

I couldn't care less about how many Bumblebees there are in each movie case. When the movie lines dominate I save boatloads of cash ;)

Beast hunters seemed to get it about right for case assortment, so maybe there is hope.

It's a movie line, so of course it consists to 70% of Bumblebee, it's tradition.

Leave it to Dead Metal to have the word 'Pronz' in his signature.

I'm going to be honest. The only movie figures I was ever interested in/bought was Blackout/Grindor. However, if they would release a third generation (80's) Camaro Iroc-Z Bumblebee, I would be the first person in line to cop one.
