I do like the way G1 Skids is right alongside him, and simply looks better. 26 years on, Takara continue to regress...

I love Bumblebee. He was the first TF I ever owned, and I have been loving his grand return through Classics and the live action films.

Alas, that figure is an eyesore...

It does not deserve the name.

It should be relegated to the dungeon alongside Movie / ROTF Ultimate Bumblebee, and that awful Classics Legends Bumblebee (Legends of Cybertron Hotshot repaint).

They do look a bit better in colour, and points for doing a new head for Cliffjumper... However, that chest is still laughable. If you have to have a giant block of untransformed car on something, put it on the back...

why is it that the closer you get to awesome, the more epic the fail? grasping defeat from the jaws of victory, takara?

That's the thing... With a bot more thought - even a more sympathetic car mode - that could be a passable figure. I guess it was lunchtime or something...

They actually do look better in color. Also, it seems the hood of the car presses flat against the torso instead of making a full-on shell with the roof.

Upgrading from FAIL to poor/mediocre.

Ok...

So they're interesting. A bit different. But still utter sh**e. Not only do they have ridiculous torsos, but stubby arms... Seriously, the full bulk is in the chest - the limbs are spindly as matchstick boy! It's like the doughnut man in Wayne's World! Sad, sad day...

...well. It's not as horrible as I thought it'd be. It just went from "**** it, pass." to "Maybe if it was on sale."

That depends. I could imagine a ginormous chest being quite amusing.

Yes. I am. I do it deliberately to spite you and to ruin your enjoyment. I'll probably do it again. And because I'm not allowed to have an opinion of my own.

Congratulations, you're the reason I don't like coming here.
