Transformers: Buzzworthy Bumblebee Creature’s Collide 4-Pack (Goldbug, Ransack, Scorponok, Skywasp)

Goldbug

Previous Mold Use: Earthrise Deluxe Class Cliffjumper, Selects Deluxe Class Hubcap, Netflix War for Cybertron Trilogy Deluxe Class Bumblebee, Selects Deluxe Class Bug Bite, Buzzworthy Bumblebee World’s Collide Deluxe Class Bumblebee, Shattered Glass Deluxe Class Goldbug, Buzzworthy Bumblebee Studio Series Deluxe Class Cliffjumper

I guess Walmart’s exclusive hold on this mold is over. Either that or Hasbro was full of shit. Could go either way. Goldbug looks great. His gold color seems pretty close to the original. I’d kind of like a shinier one, but he is accurate.

Ransack

Previous Mold Use: Legacy Deluxe Class Kickback

This isn’t the first time we’ve gotten a Deluxe Insecticon, but it was recently revealed that for the first time we are going to get all four of them! I’m very excited. Ransack is not perfect. He should not just be a repaint of Kickback with a new head, but this was the best we could hope for, and he’s pretty great, if imperfect. They included Kickback’s head, though there is no actual reason to do that. More on the extra heads later.

Scorponok

Previous Mold Use: Kingdom Deluxe Class Scorponok, Legacy Deluxe Class Sandstorm

Scorponok is now sporting his toy colors, and he looks great. He comes with both heads. This is what having the multiple heads is for. The toy had a beast and robot head. I love this. Unfortunately, too many toys were already released without the additional heads. It’s nice to have this one, but they are a little late for it to matter.

Skywasp

Previous Mold Use: Kingdom Deluxe Class Waspinator, Legacy Deluxe Class Buzzsaw

I hate Botcon Waruders. Skywasp is fine, but completely uninteresting to me having come from one of the worst years for Botcon toys. No reason for him to have a second head.

Overall: I think Goldbug is a must have. Ransack is as well. This is my favorite version of Scorponok, but if you have the original, it’s probably not a must have. Skywasp is ass. Overall, I have to highly recommend the set.

Thanks for reading!
