Still don't have Classics Bumblebee? Well get your act together if you want him, because he's getting released again. This time as apart of a wave from the "Reveal the Shield" toys coming next year.

Classics, Henkei, Legacy, Generations and United. That's 5 Bumblebees, meanwhile, only one Cliffjumper exists.

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?

Hallelujah!
Oh my, yes, this makes me very happy indeed! And to think I was that close to ponying up for an older version! Phew!
Thank you Hasbro! :D

Now, I'll take Cliffjumper and Ratchet please. :D :D :D

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 sweet, I like all of the changes, anything to make it look less childish. But i'm going to stick to my WFC BB. There isn't a chance i'll ever own a hatchback Transformer... ever.

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?

Not sure if i want this or not, my classics Bumblebee is mint in box but i do have the Cliffjumper repaint out on the shelf. I am glad to see an original classic get "re-issued" hopefully we'll see more.

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.

If they bring Classics Optimus Prime out again hopefully they'll make him cartoon accurate

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.

I missed out on it the first time (although I did get CJ), so this is a must-buy for me!

Missed Classics BB and CJ, so this might be a grab for me. Wonder how many other classics I missed might also resurface under Reveal the Shield? I know it won't happen, but a full set of seekers from one series is all I need. :roll:

I had 3 of the old one. One Bumblebee, one Cliffjumper and one other Bee painted up and head resculpted as Goldbug. I don't even like G1 Bee at all (though I loved him as Goldbug in the comics oddly both US and UK). I sold them all on though when I lost interest in Classics and used my money on movie figures instead. Don't be thinking that by painting classics Bee in movie deco is gonna tap into my love for Movie Bee and make me buy this toy again cos it won't work. Probably...

This is great news! One less toy for me to buy, but only if I don't feel comfortable spending the money.

Not particularly a fan of the stripes, but the availability is a plus. I guess I'll wait until United Bumblebee is released, who doesn't have the stripes, and decide from there.
