Blog #942: Toy Review: Transformers Masterpiece G2 Bumblebee

Transformers Masterpiece G2 Bumblebee


Please read my original review of Masterpiece Bumblebee here.

DSC01418 DSC01420Bumblebee is available with a coin as most Masterpiece releases are.  This one is a bit odd.  You’ll note the G2 symbol, which makes sense given the toy is billed as a G2 version.  Problem is that the coin says “Goldbug”.  I couldn’t get a photo where it was readable, so you’ll have to take my word for it.  Now, he makes more sense as Goldbug give that he is metallic gold and not gold chrome, but that makes no sense with the G2 symbol.

Bumblebee looks great in gold.  Of course, G2 Bumblebee was chromed, and Masterpiece G2 Bumblebee is metallic gold.  Big difference.  I would rather they have called him Goldbug, as he’s closer to him in these colors.  I’m not thrilled with the logo stickers.  They should have just painted the G2 logos on him.  As to his new accessory, the backpack is cool, but I am not crazy about the design.  You have to put the brackets on his sides and then peg the backpack on to it.  The ports fit very tight, and I was worried it might break.  It would have been better as a single piece that clipped on to him, but it’s pretty cool.  I do feel it was a bit overpriced, as the backpack is nowhere near as cool as Spike in Exo-Suit.  Great looking toy though.

Thanks for reading!
