Transformers: Bumblebee: Mission Vision Wave 1 (Bumblebee and Shatter)
The Mission Vision gimmick is a window on the back of the robot mode that looks through to the front. A button turns a wheel showing different pieces to look through. It’s very stupid. They are somewhat reminiscent of the Generation One (and repacked for Generation Two) European Trakkons and Lightformers, the main difference being that those were awesome and these are stupid.
The paintjob on Bumblebee’s vehicle mode is deplorable. The mold is fine, but who cares with a garbage paintjob like that. His robot mode is fine. Not great, but these gimmick toys almost never are.
Shatter’s jet mode is really cool. I love the design and the colors are great. Her robot mode isn’t terrible, but there is no paint on her face at all, and it just looks awful.
Overall: I hope there will not be a wave two of these, but time will tell. For completists only.
Thanks for reading!
