That looks like a sleep paralysis demon
This is awful.
No. Screw Goldbug. All my homies hate Goldbug. He stacks no paper and gets no bitches. If Bumblebee has to get an upgrade, base it on Cyberfire Bumblebee (aka Murderbee).
He *hahaha*...I can't stop laughing lmao. I was not expecting that comment lmao.
Yeah, “durrr i’m better than okay! i’m a gold bug!” like, IF YOU DON’T SHUTCHO BITCHASS UP
This is the bumblebee movie design basically
Pretty much. It’s still bayverse aesthetic, but with a more rounded design that’s reflective of his new/old altmode.
Not really though. That has the front end form the chest while this one has the canopy form the chest. Plus the Bumblebee movie design has a lot more panels and tech detail compared to the relatively blocky and simple G1 aesthetic.
Cyberverse kind of did it animated is another close second
I was actually going to say Cyberverse kinda did the reverse of OP’s idea!
Yeah Cyberverse is the G1 style face and horns on the Bay-style Camaro alt and door wings, so pretty much the opposite. The new EarthSpark design is along the same lines.
That pacifier/ball-gag thing in his mouth is unsettling…
Yeah I never got the appeal to that
WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP CALLING IT A BALL GAG?
Lose the ballgag mouth though, please.
that design just wouldnt work
I'm not really a fan of the Bay designs, but, the part of those designs I really don't like, is the heads, it's my main gripe with Bumblebee (movie) though many of the others have better heads.
I think they're going for a mix. They're taking the size and simplicity of G1 but combining it with the art style of the Bayverse design as that's probably just as iconic in some ways as G1.
I like it. From how I see it, Bee in Bumblebee is mostly to scale as he was in G1 with the others.
As much as it looks complicated, the Bumblebee look is as simple as he will get nowadays for a live action design. I'm all for that look tho as it suits him really well to me
I should mention I'm specifically talking about toys/animation, although [something more G1 based absolutely could've worked in live action too.](https://news.tfw2005.com/2022/01/18/threezero-mdlx-bumblebee-in-hand-448589#images). Basically, I'm just a little sad that Bumblebee finally got a head that's neither [needlessly overcomplicated](https://idigitalcitizen.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/bumblebee-head.jpg) nor a yellow, slightly less acornlike Cliffjumper head, only to immediately pivot back to a tweaked G1 look for the evergreen design they've been using for most things since.
That figure is cool as hell! I need it in my life now
The further we get from bayverse the better. Either take the ballgag out or be like Soundwave and cover up.
Further from bayverse doesn’t work for every character though, like ironhide to name one
Other way around for me, honestly. I like the body but for some reason bees face sculpt throws me off. Would love the G1 face on em
I just want the current design from RoTB with G1 horns instead of flaps
my only issue with the movie head design is the little ball gag looking thing he has going on, it basically states that he's only gonna talk though beep and boops and radio lines, which is the part i hate the most about the live action movies, just let my boi talk
Feels like an unreconcilable difference in aesthetic to me. I don’t see the appeal.
Thanks I hate it
The movie design is anything but cute.
I don’t know, I feel like you could be the only one
I just want horns
My sleep paralysis demon
I am going to say it looks more like a mech (like Voltron or Macross) than a Transformer. To me, the difference is that it kinda looks lifeless vs an actual "living" being.
Best I can do is Earthspark
Well the movie heads basically look like the G1 Goldbug version of Bee. So this wouldn't be bad, to me. (At least, in the comics, Goldbug and Bumblebee are the same transformer... Rebuilt into Goldbug by GI Joe and Ratchet.
With the battle mask on yeah!
I could see it working but this mock up is nightmare fuel.
Nah I’m good
well there is a figure of it if you want it lol
Movie head is not nice to look at
Nah fuck that
G1 bumblebee is better and doesn't lose his voice every four seconds
Frankly I'd rather have a G1 cartoon Bumblebee head on a Bayverse body. It looked cool for the first two movies, but at this point I'm so sick of the Live Action aesthetic to transformers.
I'd rather prefer G1 head on movie body
Man....that mf ugly
For some reason this image makes me think of the Saw puppet lol
I like bumblebee more with the front of the car forming his chest instead of the feet, like transformers prime bumblebee for example, one of the best
I like it, u should swap a heads!
