I am glad they are not using the crappy spined designs.
I decided not to buy the redeco toys, even thinking that they will be on the show. Now that I see they are not appearing makes me feel more comfortable with my choice.

I think he looks pretty sweet after with the new paint.

While it admittedly wasn't a good look, we saw a glimpse of 'Bee's new colours in the trailer from a few days back.

Am I the only one who spotted that? :???:

I heard other people saying that but originally I thought it was just the shadow from the tree.

I suspect this will be his very temporary 'hiding out' deco from going into hiding from the Decepticons and that he'll get the same 'spikey' treatment when all of the others (starting with Optimus Prime probably) get their makeovers.

I believe we will see the wild, spikey decos in the show, but not until the Autobots come out of hiding after gathering back together with a 'plan to fight back' (i.e. upgrading to their new, more 'battle ready' spikey forms).

Put BB aside for a minute. That's a really sweet paint job for that car. I really like the dark accent orange on the rocker panel. It's a solid colorways if you ask me.

As for BB, he looks waaay better predominantly black with yellow accents in bot mode than the other way around.

I believe it is a successful redeco.

Hm, looks alright on the show, I hate the look on the figure though. I decided I'm going to grab the spiky Bumblebee, I like the look of those guys. If they come out with a armored spiky Bulkhead in the Voyager scale, I'm gonna grab that too, mostly because I have the BH Wheeljack and having the two Wreckers look like Mad Max vehicles just seems right to me, and I just like the look of the BH Bumblebee.

Here's what the disclaimer says:

"Experience the 2013 Bumblebee on the Hub every Friday at 7:30 Eastern, 4:30 Pacific. The new episodes will blow your mind with the new looks and new characters and just wait until you see the Predacon! There are some amazing episodes, folks, and you won't want to miss them. Performance may vary from "Incredible to Awesome."

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Hmmm...well I originally had given up on the 'Bots getting upgrades in the actual show except for Optimus. This makes me believe that they will since it says "new looks." Also, this promo along with the longer tv spot with Bulkhead narrating seems to scream we'll be getting several brand new Autobots to join Team Prime! I'm very excited for the premier!! :DANCE:

Oh boy here we go again. I used to love Bumblebee ever since the G1 cartoons but nowadays I can't stand him anymore. Please stop with the redecos. How about instead of making so many Bee's with different paintjobs, you use all of that plastic to make some new CLassic/Universe (whatever)characters without the hollow gaps?

They can't even kill off Ironhide without people whining about it but since the live action movies Bumblebee has become almost as big as Optimus, so killing off Bumblebee would be hard.

I would like for him to be killed off but in reality it probably won't happen.

I like that he has changed his look some! Bee is supposed to be a scout and scouts should blend in...well, as much as a black and yellow muscle car can! I don't know about killing off Bee, he seems pretty popular with younger veiwers and fans. I have always liked the character, he's a nice counter to Optimus' serious leader persona. I just wish he'd go back to talking with words, the beeps and squawks is getting old. :BOT:

Im gonna go on record to say I actually like this look for BB much better than the "original" look. He just looks so much cooler.

Bumbleblack? Hey, nice paint job there, but looks like Takara was right: TF GO! is not part of the Prime series after all...so does this mean the BH toys should be their Cybertronian modes? And get BB's voice back, Dan isn't happy that we got a Bumblebummer instead of a Bumblebee!

To be honest, unlike everyone else, I could REALLY careless about whether the cast shows up in their "Beast" personas... I figure it will happen eventually, maybe the finale...Who knows. #-o

I WILL say this though... I bought BH Bumblebee because out of all the Beasted Out Autobots I couldnt resist how Bad-ass he looks :) I am disappointed they didnt put him in this paint scheme, because that would've looked SUPER BA!!!

For all the crap BB gets for his repaints, I felt good getting the BH BB :grin:

Yeah I agree. I Thought the BH designs were just a gimmick. I would have expected them to redo the cg models. Maybe eventually. I wish I got that shadow blade bb now.

I am thinking the "Beasty" modes will show up eventually...Afterall, we all know Hasbro wants to sell some toys :P ... If I had to guess, and it is just a guess, I am thinking final battle kinda stuff. Then again...maybe they wont lol :BANG_HEAD:

Yep, exactly what I'm thinking. Most of the season will consist of them hiding out, followed by them getting back together, getting upgraded to their spikey forms and taking on the Predacons and Decepticons and giving them the boot once and for all in the last bit of the season.

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

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. :)

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

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.

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:
