That's what I was thinking. I'm still not wowed by the figures I've seen. I hoped Goldbug would have been gold chrome. Hopefully the Cons will be better.

I was hoping for a little bit of a more 'gold' color than there is, but this is certainly acceptable.

Ugh, that head just doesn't mesh well with the rest of the body, and the colours are a mess.

C'mon Botcon guys, this is a great, unique idea for a set - you can do better than this.

Hmmm... Not enough "Gold" for me... His Head is... BLUE? Ah, whatever. Good to see them use the name again.

What have we done, first Animated, now this... oh well, at least I still have some hopes coming with Classics 2.0... enjoy it if you are going to buy it

That looks pretty cool. Very much like Stealth Bumblebee

It is nice. Very nice.

If Bumblebee/Goldbug were evil he would probably be sleek and shiny just like this, it's something that screams pride and vanity. Like the Evil Prime deco shows he is much more interested in causing havoc and getting into a fight than he is taking care of things, even his own body work.

Truth be told however I was hoping that Evil Bumblebee/Goldbug would be the Classics mold with a new head that I could get instead of normal Bumblebee. Looks like I will not need to cancel my Bumblebee order afterall though.

Still, looks very nice. I hope those who get him enjoy him to the extreme.

Hmm, cool I actually like it. Fortunately not enough to want it, because I'll never be able to get these botcon figs.

Prime was a big whopping "Meh" for me, but this is absolute badassery! Too bad I'm not going and can't afford it on the secondary market. But *shrugs* at least I have my complete set of Classics Seekers :D

Oh please...

Thats Goldbugs head allright but on Hot Shots body?

Why didn't they just use classics Bumblebee instead?
