Weapon: Gattling Gun
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.

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. ;)

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'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.

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....

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...

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.
