Blog #1434: Toy Review: Transformers: Legends Legends Bumblebee with Headmaster Spike

Transformers: Legends Legends Bumblebee with Headmaster Spike

Legends Legends Bumblebee is repainted from Transformers: Generations Legends Bumblebee. He comes with a new mold Headmaster Spike. Read my review of the USA Bumblebee here.

Headmaster Spike

For some reason they felt it necessary to create a new mold head sculpt for Cerebros. Not sure if they just didn’t like the original sculpt or if this one is more animation accurate. This mold change is the only reason I bought this toy, but it’s much preferred to having buy another Fortress Maximus. Spike’s robot mode uses the head from Leinad (Hascon Exclusive Arcee’s Titan Master). However, instead of just making the head silver, as Hasbro stupidly did, the head is cast in clear plastic and painted to look like there is a face in the helmet. It’s not perfect, but it is a million times better than Leinad.

Bumblebee

While I would not have bought this version of Bumblebee without the new Cerebros head sculpt, I am glad I did. It’s a little darker yellow than the Hasbro version, which I really like. The biggest difference is that he has clear windows, which look amazing. His wheels hubs are painted silver, which also look amazing. Other than that, and a couple of missing paint apps from the USA version, they are pretty much the same.

Overall: This is a great Bumblebee. Definitely better than the USA version.

Thanks for reading!
