Blog #1707: Toy Review: Transformers: Movie the Best Deluxe Arm Gun Bumblebee

Transformers: Movie the Best Deluxe Arm Gun Bumblebee

When I first saw the announcement of a tenth anniversary Transformers movie toyline in Japan called “Movie the Best” I assumed that was a bad translation. I mean, really, how stupid a name is “Movie the Best”? Apparently not stupid enough. In any case, I’m only getting the toys with mold changes or added weapons.

Arm Gun Bumblebee

Previous Mold Use: Age of Extinction Bumblebee, Age of Extinction Evolution Bumblebee (not pictured), Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Bumblebee, Movie Advanced Stinger

Arm Gun Bumblebee is a repaint and remold of Age of Extinction Bumblebee. His overall color is bright yellow like most of the The Last Knight Bumblebee toys as opposed to the orange-yellow color of the Age of Extinction Bumblebee toys. His paint apps are most similar to the Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Bumblebee, but they failed to continue the striping all the way to his spoiler. He has gray tinted windows instead of blue. He looks pretty good, though I wish they’d put the stripes all he way to his spoiler. In robot mode his paint apps are pretty much the same as Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Bumblebee. He has one mold change. The original toy’s right hand can flip around to a blaster. This one has had that hand/blaster remolded so it now includes a joint that allow you to flip his hand out to the side of his car mode to mount his new weapon in vehicle mode. The new weapon can be held in his hand, or in a new port on his forearm that was added as part of the remold. I’m not really sure why they added that port, since he can hold it in his hand, but I guess that’s why they called him Arm Gun Bumblebee.

Overall: This is a pretty cool toy, but probably only a must for completists.
