nice to see some comparison shots of the new bee. seibs, what your opinion of AD27 bee? i honestly really liked hasbros version but felt it needed more paint apps (especially in the arms). would you say hes worth importing?

Should Bumblebee come with a bottle of honey?

You bet! Here's an image from the gallery that shows this. There are many other images in the gallery that show it as well.

Hard to see, but he can:



If only they'd given him some little ball-jointed hinges for the shriuken (Probably mispelled) peg-holes

I know what you're thinking, and believe me, I don't understand either.

Not a fan of the line in general. There are a few gems, but it seems most of the figures suffer from lazy design/sculpting.

Seriously why can't we just get normal arms and hands, almost all of them have them stuck to the altform panels. On the new Bee they didn't even bother to paint the hands silver or black to bring them out.

What about a RED version called Stinger, instead? Maybe with a little reshelling?

Why not both?
Really, I wouldn't mind seeing both Wasp(inator) and Stinger become semi-obligatory "evil" repaint/retools of Bumblebee.

After seeing the Takara version of the 2014 camaro concept version of Bumblebee which feature many comparison pics, we get a look an indepth look at the Hasbro version. Unlike the Takara version which is a standalone single figure, Hasbro 'bee comes in a two pack with a redeco version of the Generations Legends Bumblebee. He is also a Toys 'R' Us exclusive. The paint app differences on the Legends Class Bumblebees are very minimal but as an added bonus, the Evolutions 2-pack Legends Class Bumblebee comes with a new weapon for added value. Click on any of the pictures to see the full galleries.

Urgh. I just realized that I mixed up AD02 Evasion Mode Optimus Prime with Hasbro's Evasion Mode Optimus Prime in many of these pictures. You'd really have to mix and match parts from the two figures to make one better version.

Still going to wait until Stinger is released. I'll always choose any car over a Camaro, especially when it's a Pagani =P~

Then you'd best be getting the 1 Step Changer since that's the only Pagani Stinger toy that Hasbro's making.

Keep in mind that while Hasbro has no confirmed plans for a Deluxe Stinger, we have yet to hear from TakaraTomy. Even then, they may just repaint Bumblebee and not reshell him at all and release him as an exclusive to boot.

this is actually a pretty good value, for $17 your getting a $15 deluxe ($18 in most places these days) and a $10 mini commander plus its an exclusive so that adds value down the road. And not to mention when AoE bee is sold on its own at mass retail youll be paying $15-$20. The only downside is that its bumblebee and a downsized AoE deluxe. But in the current market its a good deal. On a side note does anyone else think this version of AoE bee would make a good waspinator repaint? The chest has the whole eye thing going for it & the battle mask gives the head an insect look when its down.

Yes! I also thought he would make a good Waspinator, I thought of it ever since I saw him, I'm already working on him to make him Waspinator too. Just a new paint job and a new molded chin ;)

Does he need a new molded chin? The new one's mouth/chin area looks very wasp/bee like.

Well he doesn't need one, per-say, but I'd like to do one that would resemble animated since I like the character and would like to keep it for myself :D

Fair enough! Be sure to share some pictures with us when you get it completed. A Waspinator and/or Stinger from Bumblebee would be right up my alley!
