I would tend to believe Hasbro a little more if not for the picture of the Defective Bumblebee associated with this article.

Whether it was submitted by Hasbro or was just a randomly selected picture by the writer, it still makes me skepticle.

Isn't that the fixed Bumblebee? I thought the defective one had a black face (even though my black-faced one isn't broken).

Bumblebee's defective? First I've heard about it.

There's a My Little Pony live stage show? That must be a trip.

Bumblebee is simply mistransformed.

Also, that's not an actual production run figure. A lot of people believe that the mold corrected BB has a silver painted face...this is not the case. Other than the tab that doesn't break, there's no difference between the two versions.

I believe it will as if Hasbro does for one they do for all. The Titanium series, the Heroes, and so on...

Still after this movie, when this new cartoon starts, it'll all be over.

So it makes me ask, we all heard that power corrupts, and I'm willing to bet many Hasbro CEOs have skimped on product for kick backs, and thats to be expected.

But after the work day I had and seeing that rediculous animated prime, I have to wonder why noone ever said power stupifies as well!?!

BROKEN TAB??? That explains why he always looks like he just hit Devestators feet in car mode. Here I was thinking I lost my transforming technique in my older age. Thank god, call of the therapists!

Damned straight. If they want good attention post movie, can the animated series as it is now and go back to the drawing board.

This article was really the same as the other one that was posted a few days ago, nothing much new. If Hasbro didn't feel this way about the movie, I would be worried.
