Thanks to an eBay auction by toyssir8982009 we get a look at the test shot for Hasbro's upcoming Transformers Generations Deluxe Bumblebee. The figure is based on Bumblebee's appearance in recent IDW comics and will come packed with Transformers Spotlight: Bumblebee later this year. Check out the mirrored images below.

How long before a Third Party company comes with the cane accessory Hasbro made a boneheaded error in forgetting?

Is this one different then the IDW Bumblebee we were shown with trailcutter, Orion Pax, and Megs? I remember that one having door wings...

More likely that it's just mistransformed.

They swung them inside the shoulder kibble, which looks a bit weird if you notice, but if you're not a door wing person, you've got a place to hide them. ;)

With all the new toys coming out including our first Orion Pax, you'd think Hasbro would get to making a voyager class Cosmos.

Am I the only one who dislikes the 'tail' piece hanging down from the back?

Literally the only thing that holds me back from buying it, that awkward bit. Well, that and I've never really liked IDW Bumblebee.

Its kind of eye catching. If they made a hinge on that kibble part thats preventing him for sitting down, lml. But the mold reminds me of dotm deluxe soundwave. Almost the same soulders and that kibble.

Design a hinge for figures like this in the future.

I don't like his face attention, sympathy does not look as before, with a somewhat evil :roll:

This kibble mold doesn't deserve to be the Warrior Bumblebee.

I'd LOVE a deluxe Glyph from this mold...it would be very cool of Hasbro to bring more obscure and Botcon/convention exclusive characters into wider canon. Kind of like how Prime Flamewar was that universe's version of Botcon Flamewar.

My one wish for this year's Generations line is to see a G1-esque Arcee that with slight remolds/repaints could be turned into the other G1 fembots.

Stuff that is kibble on this mold: that little butt cape.

Looks to me like the shoulders parts will hinder poseability.

No worse than every Starscream ever sports. :lol:

As I said on the first page, it's mistransformed. ;) They swung the door wings inside the shoulder kibble.

Must have....
Anyone know when he's coming out?

I think they are coming out this Summer July/August?

I like the mold a lot better now than some of the images we saw from Toyfair.

If you can hide the door wings, and with the fake hood for a chest, give it a new head: this would be an awesome Windcharger....

Actually that's a really good idea, now I want a Windcharger...

That would be a good idea, except for the fact that I already have RTS Windcharger.

This guy looks cool even in dayglo colors. Not sure if he'll replace Henkei Bee in my collection, though...

If this wasn't Bumblebee, I'd buy it on the spot. I already have the Classics Bumblebee, so it would be redundant of me to get this.

I do really like the look of this mold, just wish it had a better looking weapon. Not sure how I like it as Bumblebee though. It's got a mature look to it, like what Rodimus Prime is to Hot Rod. It'd help if it was a little smaller.

Looks good to me. I think I would buy it.
