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.

Bumblebee

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

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!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. 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.
