It's time to clear a spot on your bed. UK retailer Forbidden Planet has a new listing for a talking plush Bumblebee based on Dark of the Moon. They also have a listing for an unseen Optimus Prime plush and a third mystery character. Each will feature a movie accurate sound effect. These are due out in late July.

The mystery character looks to have a similar shape to Ironhide.

Assuming they can't transform, unlike Slumblebee and Softimus Prime for the first Bay film, not that impressive.

Though these would still be better for a child to actually cuddle, I guess.

I think thats the point. The basicly suffed animals.

I think sometimes we forget that not every toy is going to be made with collectors and the fandom in mind. Kids are still the main audience, thuse many products are going to be aimed at them.

I think this is great. Though the head does look alittle freakish.

I cant see anyone wanting to cuddle that!

Imagine waking up and that being the first thing you see! You'd freak out.

Haha, you guys are funny. Kids loved stuffed stuff. Ask the gal who made plushbots. When she carries hers around, little boys ask their parents for them. She's got some funny stories of such.

As for the plush itself, I like it, but I don't generally do plushies. I think it's cute, maybe I'd buy it for a neighbour kid's birthday or something.

And hey, whoever was talking about waking up to that, try waking up to Brawl and Blackout masks on a nearby bookshelf, LOL. When I first moved them there it was funny. Now it's just a cool reminder.

The mystery character is the same picture of BB, just blacked out. You can tell by the identical silhouettes and the yellow reflections on the inside of the packaging.

As Softimus Prime and his Soft Snooze Bay would say, no transformy... no wanty :-(
