Blog #2141: Toy Review: Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy Stealth Bumblebee 3-Pack

Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy Stealth Bumblebee 3-Pack

As far as I can tell, this set never made it to the major retailers. It showed up at discount chains. Kind of weird to put three Bumblebees with similar paint jobs in one package, but whatever. It’s far from the weirdest thing Hasbro had ever done.

Bumblebee (Race Car)

Previous Mold Use: Rescue Bots Rescan Series Bumblebee Race Car, Rescue Bots Rescan Series Bumblebee Race Car Variant, Rescue Bots Academy Classic Heroes Team Rescan Series Bumblebee Race Car

Bumblebee looks pretty good in gray and yellow, but I think he would have looked getter in black and yellow.

Bumblebee (Offroad Vehicle)

Previous Mold Use: Rescue Bots Rescue Team Bumblebee Off Road Vehicle, Rescue Bots Rescan Series Bumblebee Off Road Vehicle, Rescue Bots Academy Rescan Series 4-Pack Hot Shot Off Road Vehicle

I hate this design. His arms are not attached to his torso at his shoulders, they are attached at his waist. He looks fine in these colors, but again, black and yellow would have looked better.

Bumblebee (VTOL Jet)

Previous Mold Use: Rescue Bots Rescan Series Bumblebee VTOL Jet, Rescue Bots Rescan Series Blades VTOL Jet, Rescue Bots Academy Rescan Series Whirl VTOL Jet

This is probably my favorite of the three. In robot mode it almost looks like Bumblebee is wearing armor.

Overall: This is an okay set but far from a must have.

Thanks for reading!
