What are the chances it won't? It's already made $306 million off a budget of $100-135 million, with several large markets still to open.

How much is that? Saw one for 35 at TF Source. Really he doesn't look bad. Better than the last combiner I got

Yep... my life is complete, thanks to a seller in Taiwan that wasn't overcharging for him. When you're favorite bot is Sideswipe and you favorite look for him is his movie form... you just do it.

Nice! Movie sideswipe is definitely one of my favourite movie designs from the first three. I feel like they really implemented parts of the vehicle mode into the robot well.

Definitely! And his transformation is very similar to his previous versions... even his Human Alliance figure.





Best, “Damn I’m good.” pose.





Best Sideswipe figures ever.

Several sites, including CBR and TFormers, are reporting that Viacom has already declared Bumblebee to be profitable.

After selling my Hasbro 20th anniversary prime I decided to downsize.

I didn't realize KBB-MP10v was that small lol. No worries. It's lighter and less involved compared to the larger 12 inch Optimus

Oh I feel confident that we'll get a hardtop, but they'll have a hard time not backpacking him. He's so compact right now that I don't see them improving on his bot mode at all... and possibly making more of a backpack like Jazz. Which would be a total turnoff.

This version is pretty perfect, and probably why they went with this version instead.

And here he his with Jazz, Bee and Ironhide.

Paramount’s “Transformers” spinoff “Bumblebee” led the international box office again, generating $35.6 million in 64 markets.

The autobot origin story, starring Hailee Steinfeld, has now earned $256.3 million overseas for a worldwide haul of $364 million. While ticket sales are way below even the worst reviewed installments in the sci-fi franchise (“Transformers: The Last Knight” ended its theatrical run with $605 million in 2017), this entry has proven to have long legs at the box office. Moreover, the studio paid less than half of what it cost the previous Michael Bay-directed “Transformers” movies to make.

Agreed. And the fact that it throws the language thing out too. We see them speaking Cybertronian, Optimus clearly states that they learned Earth’s languages through the World Wide Web in TF07.

Can’t learn languages if there’s no internet yet.
Optimus in deleted scene from 2007 movie: Well I myself learned English from bulletin boards accessed by a 9.6 kbps Hayes compatible modem in 1987. The other Autobots had to learn from the modern Internet...

*Ratchet, Jazz and Ironhide hang their heads in shame...*

Bumblebee in Bugs Bunny voice then Corrs song: WAIT A MINUTE! So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
All the songs we used to know...

Optimus: Yes, Bumblebee, you learned from the radio...

I’m happy now that I didn’t buckle and get the Siege Voyager Optimus.
