Bumblebee

Bumblebee looks great.  I’m not sure why they chose yellow and green instead of yellow and black for the plastic color, but Bumblebee looks pretty cool.  The shiny metallic stickers look really nice.  He actually has ball and socket joints in his shoulders.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen that on a Kabaya.

Grimlock

I do not understand why they decided to mold Grimlock’s head in red.  He looks pretty great otherwise.  I love the shiny metallic stickers  I kind of wish the green plastic was a little lighter in color.

Optimus Prime

Optimus Prime is probably my favorite of the bunch.  He has great sticker details and a pretty detailed mold.

Fixit

I like Fixit, but I had trouble getting all the stickers on his head to fit together.  He still looks good, but he really didn’t need quite so many stickers.

Underbite

I’ve never been a fan of Underbite’s design.  Looks kind of silly.  The Kabaya version does nothing to improve that.

Thanks for reading!
