Transformers Bot Shots Launchers 2013 Wave 1 (Optimus Prime & Bumblebee)
Launchers: Unlike the original launchers that had the launcher transforming into a trailer, these are just launchers that don’t actually do anything else. Feels like Hasbro got lazy again. What else is new.
Optimus Prime: Optimus Prime is a new mold using the Spin Shot design. I love his vehicle mode. He looks very G1. His robot mode is fine, but I’m never going to like the way half the vehicle hangs off the back of the robot with these Spin Shots.
Bumblebee: Another repaint of the Jump Shot Bumblebee mold. Looks good. Gettign tired of Bumblebee repaints.
Extras: Optimus Prime comes with 4 Energon Cube targets. Each have an Autobot logo on one side and a Decepticon logo on the other. Bumblebee comes with three Cyber Pins targets. Yeah, I don’t get it either.
Overall: While the original launcher toys were far from perfect, they were considerably better than these.
