Transformers: Buzzworthy Bumblebee Origin Bumblebee


Bumblebee comes with the fuel rods he and Wheeljack were transporting in “More Than Meets The Eye, Part I”. Unfortunately, he can’t really hold them. He is pictured holding them against his body, but the reality is his arm can’t hold it tight enough for them to not fall out.


Vehicle Mode: Bumblebee looks amazing in vehicle mode. This is the first time Hasbro has made a Bumblebee toy of his G1 Cybertronian mode, though several third party toys do exist. (It should be noted that an absolutely awesome Cybertronian Bumblebee was planned for the Titanium line, but Hasbro canceled the line before it was released.) He looks absolutely fantastic. I just wish he was a little bit bigger. He is branded and priced as a Deluxe Class toy, but he is very small for a deluxe.

Robot Mode: Bumblebee looks great in robot mode. He has a great head sculpt and his paint apps are perfect. I feel like they could have made the vehicle parts on the sides of his legs fold up a little better, but that’s really not a big deal. He has a jetpack, which I believe he used in the original cartoon, but I can’t recall the episode.

Overall: Bumblebee is awesome, and an absolute must have.

Thanks for reading!

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.
