Very nice! Maybe Smokescreen will get a new deco, too, with a lot more red and less white.

Yep. Definitely not the Shadow Strike BB deco.

Dead serious.

For once, one of those stupid shadow repaints pays off.

Not really.

And this isn't just for you, but for others in general:

Gray toy, black show model.
Different yellow stripes layout.
Gray toy chin, yellow show chin.
Yellow toy forehead, black striped show forehead.

Only real thing in common is the placement of the yellow bits on the legs.

Ah, right. His arms are indeed turned as well, so they look different angle-wise. Thanks for that. :)

Bee actually looks kinda badass right now.

Never thought I'd ever say that...

Agreed normally I don't give anything to Bumblebee's design because I think they are quite boring and obsolete.

Nonexistent?

Not to mention that his toy isn't primarily black.

My guess is the spikes will come in at maybe a season finale, but if they are trying to hide from the predacons/decepticons spikes wouldn't be the best choice anyway.

He's looking more and more generic, and less like Bumblebee, with each new iteration.
Good job slowly stripping away everything that makes a character individual Hasbro.

You're upset that something is changing in a franchise about things that change?

You don't seem to have put much thought into that response.

Hasbro like to flood the market with BBs so I'm really hoping they release a FE repaint of him like this.

I must make a correction to one of my posts in this thread, as I wasn't remembering something at the time:

Sabrblade wrote:

Is that a trick question?

When I had written this, I clearly had forgotten that they HAVE created a story in which Bumblebee gets killed off.

..Except that it's just not a cartoon or a movie. It was the G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers: The Art of War comic series, in which he was killed by Serpent O.R. (Serpentor), the Son of Megatron.

He dies, and doesn't come back. It's not even a heroic sacrifice, but a quick, cold-hearted murder.

Image

And it's near the middle of the story, so the Autobots really don't have that much time to focus on his death, what with the then-current crisis at hand.

Though, they do manage to hold a funeral for him by his memorial at the very end of the final issue, but it too is quite a small and brief moment:

I was thinking about an official figure of this new coloured Bumblebee. Based on what Counterpunch said on what I think was episode 60 of the Twincast about case assortment weights, I'll be very surprised if Hasbro bothers with this. I imagine the RiD figure would be too light (if that's a valid argument). The First Edition figure might have a comparable weight to the Beast Hunters line, but then again it is First Edition. Takara are pretty facetious about show variants, so I guess those of us who want it will be looking to them. They weren't above using FE figures in the Arms Micron line, so fingers crossed.

I've only just watched the video introduction for Bumblebee's new colours: 400mph? That's just stupid.
