Reveal the Shield Bumblebee!

I just saw pictures of a Reveal the Shield repaint of Classics Bumblebee with stripes based on those found on his movie design on TFW2005. I had been hoping that Hasbro would release a repaint of him like this, since I hate the white stripes on the original, but figured they wouldn't, since they made a similar repaint a few years back in an exclusive which I was unable to get. Here's the pic:

Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere here, but I looked and didn't find anything about it.

Nice. I'll be getting this version. Rumour has it Renderform is making a Goldbug head/kit for Classics Bumblebee, so I'll keep him around too.

That is awesome news!

I really like that bee. Looks better than the three-pack classics bee I have. I'd like to see that picture of Perceptor close up.

This is pretty lame, they could have made him an infinite amount of other things... Like maybe G2 BB replacing the chrome with metallic gold paint.

looks alright i guess. Would rather a Goldbug though.....sigh....someday.
With all these BB repaints you'd think they'd at least do a Goldbug. It's pretty much BB without being redundant.

Repainting Classics Bumblebee with movie Bumblebee's paint scheme was an interesting idea, and the darker yellow tones down the figure's overall cartoonishness, but now it looks like he has suspenders - I think racing stripes on the sides would have been wiser.

How many uses have each of the original Classics molds seen now? The seekers had to be redone from overuse, apparently, and it seems like the Voyager Optimus sculpt can't be too far behind, but I've not actually counted.

All things considered, though, Rodimus and Grimlock have seen relatively few uses, and Voyager Megatron is only up to... three?

So I bought a new Henkei Bumblebee to replace my old one because of it's windshield being cracked, then it turns out that the Henkei BB's windshield is cracked right out of the damned box, and now this.

The f**k is wrong with my luck lately!?

Well, at least I saved six bucks on Blurr and Dirge (they're awesome BTW) and I didn't go through the trouble of buying the wal-mart edition. So maybe I wont feel so bad to get a third BB... Or I could just stick with Goldbug.

I wish they'd just make a new mold for this, or re-tool it to keep the window from cracking. Though, God forbid they make him another Camaro. :SICK:

Let's not forget all the other characters those could have been as well. :roll:

I think that might be one of the better attempts to apply the movie racing stripes to the Classics mold. I missed on this mold, so I'm definitely interested.

Looks good! I was considering getting this one, but I probably won't unless it looks really good in person, since I already have the Henkei. The windshield is cracked on mine too though...

Also, this is exactly the same as the one shown in the United listings, which probably means the Optimus Prime is too.

Considering i missed "Classics" Bumblebee in his first go around, this makes me a happy camper. I will be doubly happy if they go "Oh, and BTW, we're doing a RTS Cliffjumper WITH a new head FROM THE SAME BODY OMFG~~!"

Of course I will then, as per usual, still not be able to afford to buy them but they will BE there for me to choose "Food or Toy?" over.

Also, just because it has been on my mind, does anybody else really think that there needs to be a "New" classics-verse Grimlock because the one from Classics just didn't retain enough of a Grimlockey feel?

Same here. Classics Cliff and Mirage are severely outnumbered by Bayverse 'Cons on the shelf, and they could use some company from a fellow Classic TF.

This is pretty great news.
I never picked up Bumblebee during Classics.

I was still a kid. I was put off by the fact that there was a red one too.
So, I bought neither of them.

It's a shame that they didn't replace that lame jetski/trailer bit with a decent handheld weapon for this edition. I might have actually bought it for just that small difference, but nooooo,

As it is, I've been using a couple of spare NEST Brawn pistols for CL BB and CJ. They work great and will look even better when I paint the outer casings yellow and red respectively, and the inner parts silver.

Anyways, good news for folks who missed out on him the first time. Perhaps there is still hope for getting a decently colored Hasbro Voyager Megs now.
