That looks like a sleep paralysis demon

This is awful.


Confusedvigilante

So, Goldbug?


Jazooka

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).


Confusedvigilante

He *hahaha*...I can't stop laughing lmao. I was not expecting that comment lmao.


supah-comix434

Yeah, “durrr i’m better than okay! i’m a gold bug!” like, IF YOU DON’T SHUTCHO BITCHASS UP


oofouchugh

This is the bumblebee movie design basically


Chaosbrushogun

Pretty much. It’s still bayverse aesthetic, but with a more rounded design that’s reflective of his new/old altmode.


Jazooka

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.


KiraQueen64

Cyberverse kind of did it animated is another close second


DarthGoodguy

I was actually going to say Cyberverse kinda did the reverse of OP’s idea!


SillyMattFace

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.


jimb575

That pacifier/ball-gag thing in his mouth is unsettling…


victorecho12

Yeah I never got the appeal to that


Kirkenkark

WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP CALLING IT A BALL GAG?


Thannk

Lose the ballgag mouth though, please.


OrhanDaLegend

that design just wouldnt work


Skrall2892

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.


urmanjosh

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


Jazooka

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.


TheAtlas97

That figure is cool as hell! I need it in my life now


Priremal

The further we get from bayverse the better. Either take the ballgag out or be like Soundwave and cover up.


BingletonJonglenuts

Further from bayverse doesn’t work for every character though, like ironhide to name one


supercanada_eh

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


Icydud3

I just want the current design from RoTB with G1 horns instead of flaps


ZacyBoi02

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


FigNewton555

Feels like an unreconcilable difference in aesthetic to me. I don’t see the appeal.


PeanutButterCrisp

Thanks I hate it


lemjor10

The movie design is anything but cute.


kyle760

I don’t know, I feel like you could be the only one


ButterBeans786

I just want horns


monsterman2023

My sleep paralysis demon


Snyckerdoodlez

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.


ShepherdessAnne

Best I can do is Earthspark


Shifter_1977

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.


GETTERBLAKK

With the battle mask on yeah!


SillyMattFace

I could see it working but this mock up is nightmare fuel.


johndgr10

Nah I’m good


arvy_p

Goldbug.


jakedrake1999

well there is a figure of it if you want it lol


Appropriate_Bid6365

Movie head is not nice to look at


sophiesbean

Nah fuck that G1 bumblebee is better and doesn't lose his voice every four seconds


Marxist_Iguana

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.


toastyyy5

I'd rather prefer G1 head on movie body


OrinoAcostado

Man....that mf ugly


Sharkticon_Soup

For some reason this image makes me think of the Saw puppet lol


BingletonJonglenuts

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


NotSoElijah

I like it, u should swap a heads!
