I'm begging to think some great evil has threatened Hasbro with killing them all if they actually paint their movie figures, the molds are ok, the paintjobs SUCK, I expected an exclusive to ACTUALLY PAINT THE GOD DAMN TOYS FROM THE WAIST DOWN PROPERLY.
Sorry, but High Octane Bee looks bad like that, and so does the new mold, which actually is pretty good and finally has the mini wings on the deluxe scale and remembers that Nitro Bee had the wheels inside the ankles, something no other Bumblee other than the MP has gotten right.

That box is purdy but the price is sure to be absurd. So I'll just stick with the new Bee when it come out by itself.

On my end, I got rid of so many toys that I see no point of getting a batch like these. I'll try to limit my purchases on only relevant Transformers from now on.

Is pretty. It may have been eclipsed by the RotF and Masterpiece movie Primes but that's still one of the best Transformer toys ever made in my opinion. Quicker to actually transform than those ones too.

The chrome is nice, but the grey plastic kills it, and the lack of the orange fade is criminal. I'd rather they'd nixed the chrome if it had meant the rest of the grey could have been silver.

A shame as that mold looks pretty cool. Sure it's not accurate but it looks...neat. Like, I kinda wish the movie model had looked more like that- blocky and classically robotic but still with the modern elements needed to make it look realistic.

I don't. I like this figure yeah but I was real pleased they managed to do one more like actual movie Prime's proper shape and proportions with the RotF figure cos I far prefer his design over super blocky Prime's anyway. There's been enough blocky Primes. :P

You monster! You're saying that poor Dion was cannibalised by his best friend Orion? :shock:

Kidding, kidding :lol:

Seriously though, I'm leaning more towards calling him "Barrelroller", after the eHobby Orion's Targetmaster.

Man, I really want that Orion Pax (and would also take that WFC Prime too) but the price for the pack's too expensive for me. Hopefully it'll show up at Ross or some other discount outlet and I'll be able to pick it up then.

You can have it for $30 shipped from amazon if you have prime, or $30 plus shipping if you don't. Much better than the $60 that it originally showed up for elsewhere.

Now THAT'S a price I'm willing to pay!
If only I had a credit card to order stuff online with. :-(

If these things were available at Toys R Us, it'd be much better for me. Then I'd be able to price match it to Amazon's and be a happy camper.
But alas, it isn't so. :(

Here is what you can try. Start placing an order on Amazon just to see what they would charge for tax (if any) and shipping. Once you know your total, go to a Walgreens or similar store that sells the amazon gift cards. I'm guessing you would need to buy in $5 intervals, so hopefully your total would be just under $35 or $40, and you would basically lose the leftover change, or you can find something really cheap on Amazon to eat up the rest.

I have it and like both figures, and $30 for 2 deluxes is basically retail, if not slightly less.

That one time in Age of Extinction maybe? I honestly haven't watched AoE in like two years so I can't remember if he actually turned into the black vintage Camaro in the movie, but the figure that this is a repaint of came from that film's line, so I'm assuming it might have happened at some point. (Maybe early in the film, similarly to Optimus' "Evasion Mode"? I dunno.) If it did ever happen, that's the movie when it did at least ;)^
