They were on a roll then they show us this. He isn't bad a like the colors. It would of been cool if they stuck with flying transformers. Did another jet and did a remold of jetfire. Four small ones and a semi large fifth one that would help explain the price there asking.

Bugbite registers a "meh" from me. Bumper I would have been okay with but I don't know about Bugbite.

I like all the new classics but I wish (like everyone else) that they were able to be put on the general market. Maybe in the future???

Bugbite really looks great to me - but I'm disappinted in the head. I had been kinda hoping they might have done something Cobra Commander style, or such like, with a visor as a nod to the Gobot. Crazy thought I know... Still, very nice.

Bugbyte was exactly what i expected and is so average.

Not a horrible recolor but, meh, who needs him.

I have slipped and fallen for Dirge, though...there is a Ramjet at a store who is going to get a repaint very soon.

I don't get why anyone would expect a different head for Bugbite. The e-Hobby exclusive had the same head sculpt as the regular Takara Bumblebee reissue. Why should the BotCon exclusive, who's based on the e-Hobby exclusive, be any different?

Not a fan of the deco pattern. Would've prefered the straight white, or a pattern that wasn't so . . . I don't know how to describe it, but I don't like it. Otherwise, it's what I expected. All in all, after seeing the seekers, I kinda figured this one would be a bit lacklustre, but it's a good mold, so no problem.

So up next is the Jetfire repaint then, no? Dreadwing?

for some strange reason, bugbite's paint job is a lot better than cliffy's in particular. they could have went with the red with tribal designs for cliffyinstead of that techno design all over it. too bad these are all out of my pocket book range. V.V

I thought Bug Bite was yellow?

Seriously...he was my one and only Super Gobot...I think.

But what a strange exclusive....

No reason for it at all, and I certainly didn't expect it - I totally expected the same head given the eHobby 'G1' edition. It was just a minority and unrealistic hope! lol!

Sucks. Wrong colour, wrong head-shape (they could've hinged up the window and drawn a face on it...), wrong alt-mode. Does he look like he's the right-hand man in an underground Communist dictatorship? No, he looks like arse. I mean, you expect this sort of idiocy from eHobby. I guess BotCon are contractually obliged to make at least one convention exclusive everyone hates.

I hate all of them.

I'm stunned they didn't make Bugbite yellow and call it Hubcap.

Yes. Yes. I know.

And I hate the jets on principle.

Ah, umm Bugbite??? I am a fan of Bumblebee, I even bought the
Classics Cliffjumper cause I liked the mold. Bugbite just doesn't
seem right. It looks like a Classics version of the E-hobby toy, but
I donno. Couldn't Botcon have picked another "unknown" TF or
Gobot to put in the package. Heck, I would have settled for a
Re-paint Astrotrain, call him Blastoff, Countdown, or Smokejumper. Iam still gonna try to save the extra money I'll need for an Iacon Package but it looks more and more hopeless by the day.

Yup, primarily because that's what we're getting.

Though, on reflection, it makes no less sense than Sunstorm would.

He doesn't have to make sense, he just has to match my college (American) football team colors.

Ah, he's OK, but I'm not fussed. After those Seekers, this is passe. Didn't even bother to pick up the Cliffy version. They sure are flogging (in both senses) that Bumble mould to death!

I suddenly got the urge to have an orange creamsicle.

Must have been the inspiration behind the Sunstorm color-scheme. Honestly, I personally don't understand what the fascination is with the character, he seemed reminiscent of some fan-fic character, as seen in the defunct DW series.

But I suppose one could say that the Dirge, Thrust, and Ramjet are also superfluous recolors, and could be interpreted as yet another Starscream mold.

Originally it was just cool that one of the 'generics' from the original cartoon got a toy made of him... why the 'fandom' around him now, though, is beyond me.

If the five-page preview comic from the Transformers Club is any indication, we may get a Classics Jetfire turned into Dreadwind and I'm guessing a Classics Mirage turned into Drag Strip?
