Blog #2195: Toy Review: Micro Machines Transformers Bumblebee Playset with Barricade

Micro Machines Transformers Bumblebee Playset with Barricade

Jazwares has resurrected the Micro Machines brand under license from Hasbro. Good luck finding them in stores. I have yet to find a single Transformers Micro Machine item in store. Walmart does not even seem to carry the brand at all, I only see them at Target.


I was disappointed when I saw Barricade that he did not include his trademark phrase on his fender, but then I flipped him around and found it. Too bad it’s not on both sides, but at least it says “To punish and enslave!” on one side.

Bumblebee Playset

Vehicle Mode: The Bumblebee playset looks great in vehicle mode. It’s bid and very detailed.

Playset Mode: The playset has all kinds of ramps and gates and guns and an elevator, etc., etc. It doesn’t do much for me, since for them to use a lot of this stuff, it they would need to transform to make it make sense. Clearly they aren’t really trying it to make sense.

Overall: Honestly, the playset doesn’t do much for me, but I’m sure kids will like it, if they can find it.

Thanks for reading!
