Transformers: Bumblebee: Entertainment Earth Exclusive Retro Pop Highway Volume 2 (Bumblebee, Zauru, Uriad)

Uriad

This was really out of left field. Hasbro dug up the original molds for Dairu and Zauru, the rarer of the two sets of Japanese exclusive cassette combiners. Zauru comes in his original color scheme complete with G1 rub signs. He looks great.

Zauru

Uriad is a Decepticon repaint of Dairu. I really like how he looks in these colors.

Combined (Zauru and Uriad)

Technically, these two do not belong combined with one being an Autobot and the other a Decepticon.

Finally we have both combiners correctly assembled. The Decepticon repaint looks great. I really hope Hasbro does the other set next year.

Bumblebee

Previous Mold Use: Studio Series Deluxe Bumblebee (VW)

Bumblebee looks pretty great in gold. I’m a little disappointed they didn’t paint his bumpers silver, but otherwise his vehicle mode looks amazing.

Overall: I can’t recommend this set enough. Those Dairu and Zauru molds are must haves, and the Bumblebee repaint is pretty cool.

Thanks for reading!

I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
