Transformers: Robots in Disguise: Buzzworthy Bumblebee Crash & Combine Bumblegrim

Bumblebee

Previous Mold Use: Robots in Disguise Crash Combiners Bumblebee

I have very little to say about these. Hasbro clearly wanted to get a second use out of these molds, and this was as good a place as any to do that. His windows are now black and he lost his black stripes.

Grimlock

Previous Mold Use: Robots in Disguise Crash Combiners Grimlock

Grimlock is looking considerably more G1 than the original. I think I would have preferred RID Grimlock in these colors.

Bumblegrim

Bumblegrim is better color coordinated than previous combiners.

If they based this Grimlock on anything I don’t know what it was.

Optimus Prime

Previous Mold Use: Robots in Disguise Crash Combiners Optimus Prime (Primestrong), Robots in Disguise Crash Combiners Optimus Prime (Lunar Force), Robots in Disguise Crash Combiners Optimus Prime (Primelock)

It may not be saying much, but this is the best version of this Optimus Prime. The silver on his chest and gray thighs make him look more like Optimus Prime. The previous red and blue paintjobs his thighs blend in and make him look weird.

Primelock

He looks better than Christmas Primelock. That’s not saying very much.

Overall: 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.
