Crap, why did Bumblebee have to be such a good figure? :BANG_HEAD:

Megatron's already got me, but I just can't bring myself to get Bumblebee. I'll just wait for the Goldbug retool.

When the weapons combine, can you fold back the grip that's hanging off the top for a more streamlined weapon?

No forward and back shoulders? Did I miss something or did Hasbro neglect the most basic yet essential form of articulation?

At first I was not sure if should get him or not but, I never really liked the moveies mold for any transformer toy however I had already pre-ordered Generations 2013 Series 03 - Case of 8 including him but then I saw the Takara version :HEADHURTS: :HEADHURTS: :HEADHURTS: and that is the one I want, so I also pre-ordered him from Takara,, and all the others, price difference sucks but I can deal with that... now just not sure what to do with all the new Hasbro Generations since I also have the Takare version on pre-order,,, most likely they will be stored right away, and will wait for the Takara version to arrive. :)

I need to stop watching these bloody reviews, I'm trying to reduce my collection not replace old for new!

Looks like a very bright, childish yellow but I do like it.

Sick of Bumblebee! I only bought the RTS version because my Classic's one was broken. But That's the size and alt mode that a Generations Bumblebee should be!

And I'm definitely passing on the IDW Megatron, because if Hasbro was listening to fans it would've been a Voyager class. That thing is shorter than Bee is.

Does Hasbro have any shame?

Trail Cutter and Orian Pax from this wave will get a home but that's it. Bring on the next wave of Hoist and Thundercracker then I'm basically done for the year.....

Yeah, it's not a bad looking figure at all. Yes the yellows are a tad weak, but at least it's actually coloured like Bumblebee. Cheers for the review. I'm sold. Although, couldn't you have chosen some less obscure figures for a robot mode comparison? ;)

I don't like the chest not being made out of car parts; toes made to look like car lights, but they're a cheat, too.
And his legs and shoulders are very hollow. I'm disappointed with him.
