Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Combiner Ultra Bee (Bumblebee, Strongarm, Sideswipe, Grimlock)


Bumblebee looks pretty good in both modes. The only real problem with him is that he is larger than Sideswipe and Strongarm. This works well on Menasor as Motormaster is supposed to be larger. It makes no sense with Bumblebee.

Strongarm looks good in both modes. She could have used some more paint apps in vehicles mode.


I like Sideswipe’s vehicle mode. He looks okay in robot mode, but has his hood as his feet, which I really don’t like.


Grimlock is a god awful mess in dinosaur mode. His front half is okay, but his back half is just a mess. In robot mode he looks pretty great though.

Ultra Bee

Ultra Bee doesn’t look too bad. His sword is supposed to be Drift, which is ridiculous. I think he would have looked better if Grimlock had been the torso and Bumblebee and Drift had been his legs.

Overall: I think Menasor is the better of the two toys, but Ultra Bee isn’t bad in combined mode.


Thanks for reading!

    eBay is the only place i can think to look, and I’m just seeing complete ones there. I think the odds of finding just one part is pretty low, but certainly keep an eye on eBay. You never know what will show up.

    Hi there,
    I’m a father, living in Amsterdam, of a 7-year old boy who’s a huge fan of Transformers. Even so, he accidently forgot (and we as his parents did as well) one part of Transformer Ultra Bee. Being: the legs, in other words: Grimlock. Do you perhaps have an advice how or where to buy just one part of the Ultra Bee, instead of a entire new one?
