Transformers: Studio Series: Rise of the Beasts: Deluxe Class Bumblebee


Vehicle Mode: Holy crap, Bumblebee is awesome! Hasbro, perhaps for the first time, did not cheap out on the paint apps and release crappy toys so they could do premium versions later. (They still can do better ones later, but not doing them lousy to begin with is huge.) Bumblebee is now a modified 1977 Camaro. His paint apps are perfect. The striping looks great, they painted all the safety bars (I assume that’s what they are). They painted his taillights, which they almost never do, as well as his grill and headlights.

Robot Mode: In robot mode Bumblebee looks great. I kind of wish he silver paint on his arms, thighs, and legs was black, but that’s a really small thing.

Overall: I am very impressed with the first wave of Studio Series ROTB toys, and Bumblebee is no exception. Hasbro absolutely knocked it out of the park with Bumblebee. Hopefully the rest of the line keeps up this quality.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
