A boardmember kenji from hk-tf.com had posted an extensive gallery of pictures featuring the latest Transformers Dark of The Moon Leader class Bumblebee.

These pics depict Bumblebee in alternate car mode, the so called "stealth-force" mode (obviously a fan mode) and the robot mode. To date, these might be one of the most flattering pictures of the Leader Class Bumblebee to date.

The Mech-Tech attachment are also shown how it is integrated in these 3 different modes.

Like him or hate him, it is your call.

Update: Thanks for Seibertron Board member - freaky777, the "stealth-mode" is a confirmed OFFICIAL MODE as per the instruction.

Stay tuned to Seibertron.com - the latest in Transformers news.

Yeah, those pics DO make him look much better, especially that last pic of him in bot mode. Earlier pics and footage made him look like a top-heavy hunchback.

The stealth "fan-mode" actually looks good, much better than the official one with just the backpack mounted.

I'm impressed! That stealth/battle mode is pretty damn cool.

Anyone else think that his Mech Tech weapon almost looks like it could combine with others to form something larger? It's vaguely torso-shaped.

WOw...that bot mode pic looks awesome! This may just be the best BB fig yet...they managed to get the chest armor right, too. One of the biggest issues i had with screen accuracy of past figs is the fact that he always looked like he had boobs since his car hood stuck out so far. This makes the front of his body look like it all slides back and into place nicely, leaving a relatively smooth front of the body.

I hope that makes sense; what it boils down to is a fantastic figure.

Fan mode or not, I like the idea of having a stealth force mode for these figures.

Bumblebee's bulkier robot mode looks pretty good, since I have a liking towards heavy looking robots. While Sentinel Prime looks good, I may have to make room for another Leader figure, choosing between Ironhide and Bumblebee...

Bumblebee's ridi'n on a boat! He's on a boat! Take a good hard look at the mother *$&#ing boat!!! I say that because he looks lika an armored boat in the vehicle weapon mode. He looks much better, and I'll definately be getting him! I think he looks possibly even cooler than Leader Sentinel Prime!

Looking cool, I really like the Stealth Mode. If only it were smaller!

Maybe it's just me, but his head looks a tad too small in comparison to the rest of the body.

One can only hope! I'll take a good Cliffjumper repaint over a regular 'Bee anyday.

Bumblebee looks really good in these new pictures, but he is just too out of scale for me.

With so many weapons in his mectech backpack, having yet again his right arm as a canon seems completely unnecessary.

A leader BB with two hands would be nicer IMO. I think I will stick to my Battle Ops BB and spend the money with the other leader figures ...

I'm trying, but I just can't like this guy, no matter how hard I try.

Slaggit! I have to get him now.
I do think these are the most flattering pictures so far. I might just have to buy him. These pictures really show his detail.

Needs a few more paint applications, that fan-made "stealth/attack" mode rocks, thought he would be bigger (when compared to Battle Ops BB). Definitely can see the Wrecker/NASCAR infuence: the rear spoiler, lower front spoiler, skirting between the wheels below the door panels, carbon fiber stripe pattern, window nets, hoodpins. I've noticed at least 5 mech-tech attach points on the big weapon and about 4 on the figure itself. The rear window slotted attach point looks very similar to what's on the front of Ultimate OP's trailer (blue area) too.

I could see buying it just for the "stealth" mode. . . or to adapt the mech-tech weapon to Battle Ops BB . . . Ultimate OP.

ok i have to admit it. im not hating this guy so much anymore. some of these pics make bb look really cool. but its just the positioning of the head that makes him look so wierd to me. i hope hes not a hunchback in the actual movie. i mean it looks like devastator bonked him on the head. id have to see him in person, plus i already have battle ops bb so this dude would have to be like super amazing for me to get him. as of now the only leader class i want is of course sentinel prime. and to be honest, if leader class ironhide is good ill get him too. i hate all the other versions of him.

I said this when I saw Battle Ops BB, and I'll say it again here. When a new Transformers toy mold literally looks like it recycles parts from another mold, the design has had its day. Ironincally, this time it's the head that looks exactly like Battle Ops BB.

That stealth/attack mode is not fan made. It's in the instructions that came with it. I know cause I have this figure in my hands.

Wow, that IS pretty cool! I think I'd much rather keep him in that mode than the Camaro.
