I went to a TRU in Calgary, Alberta today.... Be happy this isn't your TRU.

There's probably over 200 Bumblebee's in this store between FE, DOTM, Prime, and the Entertainment Packs.

Did I just see a Star Wars Transformer Bumblebee in that mess?

And yet more proof that Hasbro needs to stop trying to make Bumblebee the new face of Transformers. Hasbro needs to start listening to the fandom again. We know what everybody wants and it is not Bumblebee. But Bumblebee back into the Transformers crypt again, so Transformers can survive.

Think about it the last time we saw Bumblebee before the Classics line was in 1992 a full 15 years before the Classics line. Which Autobot has been around the longest? Optimus Prime. He has always sold until the overpriced Optimus Prime with trailer. That all of us are waiting for to go on clearance below $20.

Hasbro really needs to get a clue.

Think its about time to kill Bumblebee,

 

:tflaugh

 

 

I dont see why they dont ship the figs in altmode which would make the packaging smaller,saving money in materials.Then again I dont think they would pass the saving on to the consumer.

 

They did that for years. Hasbro opted to start shipping them in robot mode when they were seeing a better reaction to the figures in bot mode, than when in the alternate modes.

The only ones I remember seeing packaged in bot mode recently would be FOC, MP Thundercracker, and all Cyberverse, Voyagers and larger. Deluxes in Prime and Pre-FOC Generations, and Movie lines have been packed in vehicle mode as far back as I can remember.

yea, what Hellscream said. Leaders since Cybertron have been in bot mode. Supremes since Unicron as well.

 

 

 

 

I'm in Lethbridge, Alberta today. I hit up the local TRU here. It wasn't as bad as the one in Calgary but still a sea of BB's. I did find a FE Cliffjumper here. bought it on site. very happy about that. even if it does have french writing all over it.

So maybe during the next time Hasbro decides to do a Q&A someone should ask, if they could please stop with all the Bumblebee's, I bet that would get a standing ovation, and if Hasbro said no, everyone should just walk out on them LOL

All I have been seeing lately at the TRU's here in Tucson is nothing but DOTM, and a ton of Prime Bumblebee's.
