Yay, more shelf warmers are on their way.

Seriously? what is it with the bumblebee stock lately? Nobody buys these things. Too many bumblebees in my opinion.
Hell, I come and visit my local target store after every month or so and they're so many bumblebees since DOTM and Prime.

Hasbro and Takara really needs to step up their games, whether Japanese exclusive or not.

So sick of BB. Combine him with the leftover DOTM figures like jolt, some of those wreckers and some other straglers and my Vancouver stores are clogged.

That bot mode lacks paint so badly.

He looks like crap. Like an oversized legends figure. Also saw nothing but Bumblebees in target today.

The proliferation of Bumblebees is the direct result of Michael Bay and his team ignoring storytelling in favor of whizbangery to the point that no character other than Prime and Bumblebee was developed enough for the audience to care about them. Until that changes, we can look forward to about 10 times as many Primes and Bees as everything else.

Oh, I know. I went to Toys R Us the other day. They had no Prime toys, but they DID have THREE, count 'em THREE leader class ROTF bumblebees. I go to wal-mart, and I find Seven Prime RID bummblebees. And I can't even count all the DOTM varients of that little yellow pissant

That dosn't include other shelfwarmers like:
Animated Rodimus
Cybertron 3 pack Ransack, Repugnus, and Scattoshot (yes, Transformers Cybertron, rereleased under the '08 universe banner)
ROTF Mudflap, Jolt, and Stalker Scorpinok

I swear, all thats missing is transquito. I'm starting to think the only way I'm getting airachnaid, knockout and veihicon is by paying insane ebay prices.

Ack, more Bumbull$h!t.

No matter how many microns, shinies and stickers Takara puts on this thing, the only way to even slightly redeem this mold would be a total retool of the wheel positioning. It would be better a better design to just remove the fake wheels completely and let the transformation be unique to that figure, but no, because the designers only care about detail when it detracts from the figure, they have to give him fake wheels...
