I wonder how easy it would be to strip off that gold paint and make a new character. I'd SO much rather have a new character than a shelf-o-bees.

I'm talking about you Cliffjumper, Glyph, Tap Out, Bugbite, Wasp, Goldbug, Bumper, and/or that black unnamed Japan exclusive that I've taken to calling Scarab.

Let's not even call this brand "Transformers", it's "Bumblebees".

Mind you... whatever it takes to keep Hasbro making money so they can ALSO crank out the Classics and Fall of Cybertron toys. If lil kids are buying up all these bumblebees, I say keep them coming.

bumblebee sales = more flexibility

"exciting new offering"

You lied.

Reveals of Bumblebee repaints are like the Rickroll of the Transformers collectors' world. "We've got something new and exciting to show you!" ... ... "Ha! Fooled you! It's a Bumblebee repaint! Never gonna give you up..."

Nice... Wave 4/5 and we already have two Bumblebee molds, one Bumblebee remold, and three Bumblebee repaints.

But... they're not. Bumblebee is one of the most notorious shelfwarmers today. It isn't because Bumblebee isn't popular, it's because he's overpacked in each case.

Posted by gothsaurus on April 6th, 2012 @ 3:19pm CDT
Well, I'm SURE they sell more Bumblebees than your regular cast and crew figure like Ratchet, etc. BUT I agree with you. They're WAAAAY overpacked. I wish they'd overpack the troop builder figure instead. I get sick of hunting them.

The worst part is that said Bumblebee remold is shipped alongside the original, and will probably ship with the new repaint as well. :BANG_HEAD:

I mean, I CAN ignore all those... but it usually means the store won't restock because of all the shelf warmers. I DO wish Hasbro could get their numbers tweaked so the stores would keep things up to date.

As I understand it, the Vehicon, at least in Wave 1 Cyberverse, has the same amount of figures per case. But in waves 2-on, Bee is still 2 per case, while Vehicon dropped back to 1. Though I honestly can't notice the even case packing in store isles, as there are just Bumblebees littering the shelves.

Though I'm to blame for some of them, stocking up on Vehicons and all. :KREMZEEK:

Yeah, with two fan-favorite repaints to pick from — ie. Malrboor and Slicer — I'm sorely disappointed in this repaint.

Come to think of it, we never got a Marlboor or Slicer for Classics. Come on... hop to it Takara!

I'm personally hoping for a Slicer in the 2013 Generations line. =P~

Another repaint of Bumblebee.......didn't see that one coming.............

Seriously, the kids must love the hell out of BB, since Hasbro make so many of a once scout who, in the cartoon, was always being caught..........

I once saw an entire self of Darkmounts. 4-5 across, the same or more deep. so at least 20 of the things. Hamleys in London probably still have them, actually.
