Is the presumed Leader Class Bumblebee simply this new incarnation? Take a look at Battle Ops Bumbleebee, which looks to be a stand alone toy in it's own class size. Thanks to ActionFigs.com, we get stock photos of the figure. Check them out below.

That is some strange new packaging. Also, I see 6 conversion levels now? We're going to get finer grained levels, and they still won't be accurate.

Also, what is that odd pull ring on the right arm?

I really do like the big hood guns, so long as they collapse into the hood.

Really? A new BB mold? Was this really necessary?
He looks o.k but do we need another Camaro?

I mean we already have 3 Deluxes, 1 Human Alliance, 1 Ultimate in just ROTF alone. Not to mention the legends and bumpers and all other BB paraphernalia this movie has churned out.

I'm not sure a Leader class BB was needed. Is this even leader class, can't really tell from the pictures.

thanks for the post really really thank you first image we got of this guy looked better than the new ones we got now

bumblebeee... ok i think we all od have something against it not because itanosther how bbs we have now but how it looks this looks horrible ill have to see video review of this guy first but either way i think this will be the first leader class figure ill pass on is the ring hin another way of pull my finger i dont get it you pull ring his mask comes down or soemthing or does fire his gun ha bb looked more realistic & better than this one.

if the ring comes off, & guns collapseable hen maybe ill buy him and if his armcannon swithes to gun to his hand that will be an extra added feature but i have greatly disspointments with this thign just buy looking at it i know the saying dont judge book buy its cover but this i may make an exeption until proven oher wise with video review

Perhaps it's the trigger for his gun-hand?

I'm sure the kiddies will like him. I personally don't give a front-end loader

Hm, good points: Battle mask looks like it's movable, Robot mode is sleek, he has accurate weaponry, and he seems to be painted rather well.

Bad points: Too many Bumblebees already (let's see more Barracade or Blackout!), The eyes still remind me of a frightened animal, the cannon-arm looks like it's all there, meaning no right hand, he's got a giant hoolahoop stuck on his arm that looks like it takes up alot of space, It has lights and undoubtedly sound, meaning more stupid sound bites that weren't from the movie and are most likely really dumb songs.

I'll pass on this.

Not interested in this one. Why cant they stop making Bumblebee with only 1 arm ???

I don't think this is Leader class - I think it's Human Alliance size. For a start it just LOOKS smaller than leader. Also, when you compare it to HABB:
- chest is the same
- doors are the same
- wheels with chain and gear detail are the same
- left hand sculpt is the same
- abdomen (with all the pistons that BB DOESN'T HAVE) and groin are the same

But wasn't there a price thing about Battle Ops Bee being $60?


BTW the pull ring is to activate lights and sound. It says so on the box.

My final comment:
BLOODY MONKEY ARMS AGAIN.

I must say, that's kinda cool.
But, we didn't need another dang Bumblebee mold.

edit: Place your bets. How many times will it be repainted?

I knew it was a more-or-less kit-bashed retool! (It's also common to us Star Wars Hasbro customers :-B !)

It's a Human Alliance figure without the Human elements; why can't they just say? #-o

Also, (Caps Lock: Ready to UNLEASH THE FURY!!!) FRACKIN' BUMBLEBEE AGAIN! :twisted: :BANG_HEAD: :BOOM:

Although, you've got to wonder; if it's a new 'Human Alliance But Not' line, then maybe they'll release other characters that would otherwise be difficult to pair up with any humans? (Sideways, Jolt, Jazz, etc) :???:

Really? Was Bumblebee such an impact on the kid demographic that it calls for countless toy incarnations? Damn, Hasbro, just give us a leader-size Blackout already and quit stalling!

I think that we have to keep in mind the notion that this is not just a regular line of Transformer figures but an official movie line, so it needs to accentuate certain characters more than others. In a typical line of TFs I think we get more Optimus than any one else, but with the movies we get a load of BBs because the children are supposed to identify with the sppechless, characterless character who uses songs to communicate with its target audience who is probably ten years too young to know what the songs are.
So basically, BB=BS.

Wait, there's a transformation level 0?

... What would that entail? Nothing?

Also, they're really flogging a dead horse at this point with Bumblebee - they're past that point even.

In saying that, I'd still like a Bugbite repaint of the deluxe mold.

Stealth BB
Faceplate BB
Less-stupid face BB
Electro static modulation circutry BB
Pyromantic oscilation BB
Nightstrike BB
Sam n' Pals BB (with accessories and plastic Shai LeBouf who is actually a better actor than the flesh Shia)
Desert Ambush BB
Jungle BB
Jungle Ambush BB
City Fiesta BB
Flood Damaged Used Car Resale BB
Different Front End Weapon BB
Prestidigitation Expert BB
Primium Paint Job BB

And then, in the thrid quater of 2010, Hasbro will really start to crank out the repaints!
