Transformers: Buzzworthy Bumblebee World’s Collide 4-Pack (Blackarachnia, Bumblebee, Fangry & Brisko, Nemesis Primal)


Previous Mold Use: Kingdom Deluxe Class Blackarachnia

Blackarachnia has been repainted into her colors from her original Beast Wars box art with a new head based on her original toy face sculpt. It’s kind of a bizarre color scheme as it is not even vaguely like her original toy or her original animation. I do kind of like it though.


Previous Mold Use: Earthrise Deluxe Class Cliffjumper, Selects Deluxe Class Hubcap, Netflix War for Cybertron Trilogy Deluxe Class Bumblebee, Selects Deluxe Class Bug Bite

Bumblebee is made from the Earthrise Cliffjumper body and the head from the Netflix Bumblebee. It’s not bad looking, but feels like a very unnecessary repaint.


Previous Mold Use: Titans Return Titan Master Fangry

Brisko has been repainted. Most notably his robot mode face is now painted.


Previous Mold Use: Titans Return Deluxe Class Twinferno, Titans Return Deluxe Class Grotesque, Power of the Primes Deluxe Class Repugnus

I know we are never going to get the other smaller Headmasters, but it’s nice to at least get one. Fangry looks pretty great. I like the wolf head and the SPD STR INT on his chest.

Nemesis Primal

Previous Mold Use: Kingdom Voyager Class Optimus Primal

Well, I guess there weren’t a lot of options to repaint Optimus Primal, so a Nemesis version is as good as anything I guess. (At least it’s not Oilmaster.) I really love the colors. He has quite a few paint apps in a bunch of colors. Hasbro seems to have put in some extra work on this one, which does not make up for all the ones they phone in.

Overall: This is a really nice set. Is it a must have? Probably not, though Fangry does make it hard to pass on. Unfortunately these seemed to have dried up before going on clearance.

Thanks for reading!
