Transformers: Age of Extinction Walmart Exclusive Legends Bumblebee, Grimlock, Optimus Prime, Stinger

It seems to have taken forever, but AOE Walmart exclusives have actually shown up in stores.  There are three different Bumblebee and Stinger Legends (1-Pack, 2-Pack, and 3-Pack) and two Optimus Primes (1-Pack and 2-Pack).  These are labeled in the toy comparison photos below.

This Bumblebee is made from the first RotF Legend mold just like the 2-Pack version.  While they failed to paint his back window, this one is a darker orange-yellow color and looks really nice.

Grimlock is repainted from the Transformers: Prime: Beast Hunters Legion Rippersnapper mold.  It’s been nicely painted, but it’s such an awful mold, I think they would have been better off repainting the Optimus Prime Legend as AOE Megatron.

Optimus Prime is a repaint of the RotF Legend Optimus Prime.  This has a better color scheme than the 2-Pack.

Like the 3-Pack, Stinger is made from the Transformers: Prime: Beast Hunters Legion Knock Out.  The black markings on his hood look really cool.  They painted his feet which was nice.  Seems like there was a firm rule as to how much painting they could do, which is why neither this nor the 3-Pack version is perfect.  (You could take them apart and make one awesome one.)

Overall:  At $6, these are cheap, and all are nice accept Grimlock.  His mold is so bad I’d say you can skip that one.

Thanks for reading!
