Weaponizer Bumblebee most show accurate Prime BB to date?

Postby xyl360 » Fri Aug 03, 2012 1:22 am

I just watched a review of Prime Weaponizer Bumblebee and both his vehicle and bot modes appear to be incredibly show accurate, even more so than the FE version.

The only things I see that are a bit off are of course the wheels (he cheats, having fake wheels where they appear on the show model while having the actual wheels in other spots) and his arm cannon, which doesn't peg in deeply enough to look correct, though I'm sure that can be fixed by clipping the peg down so it's shorter.

I think I'm going to have to pick this one up, unfortunately BBTS doesn't appear to be carrying the Weaponizers at the moment, at least not that I can find.

He definitely IS the best so far. The car looks gorgeous and has the correct black stripe pattern. The robot mode has the rounded chest. The most obvious problem is the wheels on the forearms but I could over look that. If they downsized this to deluxe I'd buy it, whether or not they removed the gimmick. I won't buy this version because he doesn't fit in scale wise.

I'm not buying him for the same reasons as Mykltron, and I also agree that it is very accurate.

He has 8 wheels.
The plastic is crap quality, he's out of scale, and his backpack is horrifying. I wont be going anywere near this thing. More for you guys I guess. I still believe the FE version to be the most accurate when you factor in the transformation, and the fact that he only has 2 fake wheels, and they are right next to the real ones, and arent painted at all, so they are easy to ignore.
The FE paint is far superior as well, and the RiD guns are a perfect fit.

I couldn't resist. I snagged one on HTS. I just could not ignore how show-accurate the car mode and bot modes look. They even got the look of the top of the car and windows right where the windows are high hup and very narrow, almost looking squished (that's how they look on the show) along with the rear end being wider than the front end.

The same goes for the bot mode. The wheels (fake ones) being in the right place, the chest, the head, the arms. All more show-accurate than any other version.

I'll happily be adding him to my Prime shelf because though quite out of scale, he is an excellent representation of the character.

Well, to each his own, I suppose. but your looking at accuracy from a very odd angle IMO. Thats like saying fast action battler bumblebee is the most accurate movie bumblebee because his chest looks identicle to the one on screen, when all it really is is a panel, while all the real molding is on his back.

I like to count the transformation and kibble placement as well.

PRiD Cliffjumper is a good example of this. He looks alot more accurate, but he's 50% Fake kibble. He's got 6 wheels, two sets of headlights, two roofs, and two grills. While the FE isnt perfect, its far more accurate to most anyone you'll ask about it, simply because almost everything falls into place like its supposed to, not because it simply looks the part. It's got the fake leg wheels too, as far as I know it may have more (I dont own him) but it intigrates alot better.

I hope you enjoy your massive bumblebee though.

Hehe, yep, they definitely do a lot of cheats.

I also forgot to mention the car doors, which align much more closely to the way they do on the show in bot mode than either the PRiD or FE versions.

I guess it's the end result, not so much the transformation, that I judge the accuracy on. It's the same reason I like FE Optimus better than the PRiD one. The PRiD one doesn't cheat to form the chest, as a result, it looks far less accurate to the show than the FE version.

I painted those fake wheels to look like real wheels so they COULDN'T be ignored! I wanted the inside leg to be show accurate.

The trouble with Pheobe's arms (FE Bee, get it?) are that they're very bent and the guns point at a stupid angle so he always looks as though he's trying to shoot around a corner. They also attach to the underside of the arm instead of the side.

On the bottoms of the arms? huh?

And a little cheating is ok, it's permitted even.
Its when you do it to the point of EIGHT WHEELS from a four wheeled car mode that it gets to me.

Agree with the oddity of the wheels on the forearms. Overall, I like the figure.

I won't be getting this one unless he goes on clearance for $10-$15. I will probably stick with the FE. Is the middle of on screen BB's chest yellow like that?
