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.
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!
