Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Three Step Changers Wave 12 (Power Surge Bumblebee, Soundwave, Cybertron Strike Steeljaw)

Power Surge Bumblebee

Of goody. Another Bumblebee repaint. I was afraid we wouldn’t get any more of them. This is a repaint of the original Bumblebee Three Step Changer mold as opposed to the remold that was released in the previous wave. I actually like the blue, black, and yellow color scheme. Nothing terribly special, but decent looking.


Soundwave looks pretty great. I love his vehicle mode. The red wheels really make a mostly dark colored toy pop. He’s got Soundwave missile launchers on both sides of the cab. He looks great in robot mode. His paint apps are excellent. I’m surprised just how much I love this one.

Cybertron Strike Steeljaw

Steeljaw’s repaint is not exactly what I would call extensive. He basically has a few paint apps added. Frankly, it’s pretty half assed. My guess is they needed another toy for the wave and this was all they could come up with.

Overall: Soundwave is awesome. Bumblebee looks great, but he and Steeljaw are for completists only.

Thanks for reading!
