Hey Seibertron! Awesome photos!
But do you know what would be an amazing touch? IMO Anyways?
I Think it would be awesome if, every time you put a new bot in the galleries, you put a little side note saying your personal thoughts on the figure. That's just my opinion of course, but I think that'd be cool...

I'm still holding out for a comparison photo or two, but at this time I'm not blown away by this guy. Simply doesn't excite me.

On a side note, have ANY of the Robots in Disguise deluxes got insignias?

I think I like the first edition better, too bad I never got it.

Bumblebee has no insignia but rid Optimus does

I've been messing with both figures today and as far as this bb goes, he's a toy, first edition was much more collectors quality. The auto morph actually works in its favour, once transformed he is much more solid than the FE bb.

I know there's a lot of moaning about some of the features on these by some collectors but this is a mass market toyline. It's not kibble free, but it's damn good at making the kibble work, but it's a sturdy representation and it's not too complex, especially compared to prime.

I'd suggest everybody try him. At first I thought I'd hate him, I was insanely angry he was the only figure left at the store (I've since acquired a load of cyberverse plus, deluxe CJ and Wheeljack, and I'm getting voyager megatron on Tuesday) and the quality of paint is far below generations standard, but he grows on you. As a representative of the start of a line, he's not bad, and I strongly suggest people don't go overboard forming opinions till they try him in hand

These photos are actually from Kapow toys. I am sure Ryan will do his regular magic on these figures sometime in the future.

If they were too make another Bumblebee figure, you'd think he'd be less chunky lol. I just can't deal with the way the neck/head is engineered, but I'm sure I'll change my mind if the figure ends up in my collection.

I'm pretty sure the reasoning for the chest/head design was to sacrifice accuracy in favour of sturdiness.

Btw the window/roof on his back plugs in just above his waist, again making it very sturdy and filling out the large gap in historso

Is there any reasoning to why they thought this was a good idea? It's like nobody even knows what they're doing anymore. "Hey lets take an existing mold that effort and thought went into to construct and cram a gimmick in it's chest!"

Just opened my BB and played with Wheeljack and Soundwave at my friends house a while ago and compared to the first edition this BB isnt great.

His plastic looks cheap and feels it too. Compares to the First Edition the sholders range of motion is limited and the plastic painted in yellow is a different shade/colour to other parts of the toy(in one other toy Ive seen what looks like 3 shades on 1 figure).

And the automorph on my one was misaligned so had to take it apart to fix the head/neck section so it went flush.

This guy has RTS Jazz syndrome. His rear end is naked. :lol:

I like the head but I'll stick with the FE release.

Did they shrink him in comparison to the FE version like they apparently did to Cliffjumper?

It would be great if someone who has both figures in front of them could post some comparison shots.
