Big Bad Toy Store Exclusive Transformers Prime Dark Energon Deluxe Bumblebee

The Dark Energon series of Transformers Prime Deluxe and Voyager toys are exclusive to BigBadToyStore.com in the USA, though they are available at retail in some other countries.  The Voyager Optimus Prime and Megatron are set to come out soon.  I really hope this will not be the last series of Dark Energon toys.  I would love to see a second series of Deluxe Soundwave, Vehicon, Ratchet, and Arcee, and Voyagers Dreadwing and Bulkhead.

I’ve grown to really dislike this deluxe Bumblebee mold.  The piece of the hood that his head is connected to will not stay flat down on his shoulders.  It makes his face point at a downward angle all the time.  It’s just not very well designed at all.  That said he is mostly colored in translucent metallic gold which looks absolutely amazing.  They should use this color for more toys, and it looks great with the blue.  I like that the Autobot toys have their own unique insignia, the Autobot logo on a gold shield. 

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.
