Blog #218: Toy Review: Transformers Prime Weaponizers Bumblebee

Transformers Prime Weaponizers Bumblebee

(Vehicle Mode)

(Vehicle Mode – Weapons Deployed)

Vehicle Mode:  I like the car mode a lot.  It’s nice and big compared to most Bumblebee toys.  The deployed weapons mode is okay, but I’d rather have snap on weapons that could be attached pointing straight and not up at an angle.

(Robot Mode)

(Robot Mode – Weapons Deployed)

Robot Mode:  Robot mode is nice, but he could have used a few more paint apps, he looks kind of plain.  I do like the guns on his shoulder.

Overall:  It’s a decent Bumblebee toy.  But I really take issue with Hasbro advertising the toy as having four modes.  He has two modes, robot and car.  Deploying weapons is an action feature, but does not constitute the toy having additional modes.  That’s like saying Legion toys have four modes because you can take the guns off.  It isn’t really changed by the fact that the weapons are built in.  Not worth $30.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
