Blog #1506: Toy Review: MAAS Toys Cybertech Series Skiff (Cybertron Mode Bumblebee)

MAAS Toys Cybertech Series Skiff (Cybertron Mode Bumblebee)

Skiff is MAAS Toys’ Third Party Bumblebee in his Cybertron vehicle mode from More Than Meets The Eye, Part I.

Bumblebee’s vehicle mode in More Than Meets The Eye, Part I looks different from scene to scene. In some scenes he looks more disk-shaped, but in others, he looks wider, like he has wings. This Bumblebee has the look of the latter version. It’s a really cool design. I wish he had a few more paint apps in vehicle. He looks pretty plain, but it’s a great design. In robot mode he doesn’t look anything like Bumblebee. In More Than Meets The Eye, Part I, even though their vehicle modes were different on Earth than on Cybertron, they looked the same in robot mode on Cybertron and Earth. Having said that, he does look pretty cool. I’m not crazy about the big shoulders. It would be better if they clipped into place. I don’t really like the face sculpt. It comes with a G1 toy version face, which looks much better. For some reason, they designed his head so that you need to remove the screw on the back of his head to swap the face.

Overall: This was put on sale on MASS Toys website. Even with shipping it’s well worth the sale price, but I wouldn’t pay any more for it.

Thanks for reading!
