I don't think its meant to be a new "camouflage paint job" so much as it is sand and whatever dust/dirt/etc a car or for that matter anything in the desert gets stuck to it. I see this more as bumblebee being dirty from the sand and grime of the desert, and not simply have tan coloured blotches ontop of his existing paintjob.

The most brilliant marketing scheme by Hasbro yet! Make something that screams "Epic Fail" so loudly
that people will actually look forward to getting figures like Breakaway and Wheelie.
This makes the fugly twins look appealing. I'm usually very open minded about new releases and try my
best to be non-critical and judgemental about new stuff but this thing is just...so utterly...
damn, that's horrid! #-o

Wow it looks like some one just crap that out and called it a color. Guess they didnt know that there is actually a yellow camo patter out there and it actually looks cool. Just another pass for me.

Alternate mode looks okay. Like.. actually looks like it's buried in sand. Then there's Robot mode.. Oh god.. Even a fan like me who tries to like all repaints can't even deal with this.

They should add an "L" to the "ROTF" label on some of these figures.

They didn't. Just like they didn't "cancel" the Universe line when the first movie toys came out, or when the Animated line came out. It's a fill-in series used to release figures between movie/TV lines. They'll go back to making "Universe" figures after the ROTF line is through.

No, it's clearly supposed to be desert camo. If that was supposed to be dirt, it would be an even bigger failure. But it's clearly an attempt at camo.

You forgot to say "piss-poor" before "attempt". :grin:

I'll have to show the pic. of this to my kids tomorrow when I go over to my ex-wifes to do some work. I'll let you folks know what a kids reaction is to this...monstrosity.
