I actualy like the figure. Still a pass tho due to scale. Maybe way down the line I'll pick it up on sale or somthin.

If it wasn't for
- being out of scale with everything except deluxe Ravage
- weird zigzag arms
- monkey arm
- huge bulky upper body hunch back
- knees where the middle of the thigh should be
- inability to stand with backpack
- only one hand
- weird extra chest kibble weirdness
I might have been interested in buying him.

Can't help but think that torso plate goes behind the chest pieces? That would make a bit more sense cosmetically. Yeah it does make him look very bulky.

Really?!?! Hasbro get's tons of complaint letters from parents saying their kids can't transform ROTF figures, so Hasbro dumbs down every DOTM figure except Bumblebee?!?! Bumblebee, who is said to be the "most popular" transformer :roll: I know one kid that likes Bumblebee, the rest want to see him dead. And why is Bumblebee the biggest shelf warmer next to Skids and Mudflap???

I didn't get around to buying the previous Leader Bee figure which now I'm glad of cos I think I will get this one if I ever get enough money for bigger TFs again. Looks very cool.

I wouldn't call Bumblebee a shelf-warmer, in my area, its hard to find Bumblebees. Yet, my wife will tell me we don't need it because I already have a numerous amount of Bumblebees.

If they were able to cut and fold the front grill/shoulder piece where the wheel wellstarts, and push the chest inwards, he woulda been awesome!! Still, I like him.

I'm pretty happy with this figure...happy that it doesn't look like a must have fig. Like the rest of the world, I'm sick to death of movie BB, but the last couple molds were actually really friggin' good, HFTD deluxe & Battle Ops, so I bought them anyhow...even if the latter was thanks to a $20 clearance at CostCo. But for this one, I think I'll have to break out the "awww hell naw!"

Thank you Hasbro! An oversized Bumblebee worth buying.

I'm happy to see how this one turned out. Most of the Bumblebees of the past have failed to be exceptionally movie-accurate. However, I think this one takes the cake. It has a lot of detail. Plus, it appears to me that having the electronics outside of the figure itself helps it as a whole. I didn't like that apparatus at first, but with it's features and all the available MechTech and clip ports, you could turn it into a really freaking armed Bumblebee...or maybe another leader if it's compatible. The Camaro mode looks very nice to me as well.

I know everyone wants Bumblebee to die and be melted down, but I can't help but love him.

I actually like the look of Bumblebee, how his chest is a bit bulky and armored. I don't think I would buy this figure considering it is like 45 dollars for this thing. Not to mention he is totally out of scale with my other figures.

I'm fine with my ROTF deluxe Bumblebee, he's in scale and he's good looking next to the others.

However I am quite mad about this figure. That would be that I now know where all of the detail and paint apps went from Sentinel Prime. I'm guessing the funding for the dissapearing paint apps on the DOTM figures, like Sentinel, is being sucked into that stupid gimmick-pack that comes with
this Bumblebee.

And that pisses me off.
