Disturbing!

However is this the only BB product with a functional face mask?

Agreed, Liege. Not even Ultimate BB had that feature, but that toy was kinda lame anyway.

$135.00?!! Way too rich for my blood.

Cool idea to start with. Hopefully they will do a Prime bust and improve on this one...it's kinda creepy lookin...

Would Love to see a Prime bust with a slide-into-place mask...

Agreed, I wouldn't spend even close to that. Busts just don't do it for me anyway.

Is it me or does his head look slimmer?

Yeah, his face is definitely too slim. It was a lot more round if I remember right...

I think Bumblebee lost some weight. Its a cool idea but i think a Prime one would be cooler. A talking Prime one with working battle mask would be sweet.

You know your right, I don't think they've goten the battle mask close to correct yet!?!

And Yeah, Ultimate BumbleBee is goofy looking and without even so much as a flip down face...

well gimick loaded as he was, he just seemed far from Ultimate to me.

Since it's still in the prototype stage, I do hope Hasbro corrects the unproportional look on this Bumblebee bust.

Maybe Ratchet has been working a little bit too long on him. That or BB has an eating disorder.

By the way Liege, I love the video in your sig.

I think that I will pass due to two things: 1) it is spooky and 2)too expensive for something that sits there and looks at you.

Looks nice, except for the neck, maybe they'll do Prime next.

its Almost perfect all it needs is imporvement on the mouth, jaw its to skinny looking if they fix mouth i may get it but if it stays like the prototype iill definatly will not get itsince the mouth is still incomplete from the offical version in the film.

could be 20 to 30 dollars cheaper but i do like the eyes light up and the battle mask would great if the bust be made with the battle mask option.

if they make a bust for all the movie robots it be intersting to see on how they make battle mask option for jazz with his visor and all

edit there is going to be an optimus bust goinbg for 59.99 for its above the bumblebee bust on the site for $60 it may not be that big

It looks really disturbing with such a tall neck- if they fixed that it'd actually look pretty good. Also this thing's price has to be pretty steep- even for a bust.

And that, my friends, is why I dont buy them :[

It doesn't look like the mask would slide down.
Yet another bumblebee.
