    Screen-accurate and great for display, but rather “fiddly” for my taste, August 14, 2010

    I gotta say, at first I was really disappointed in Battle Blade Bumblebee (hereafter BBB). I find the figure on the whole rather “fiddly”. That is to say, I think he’s much harder to transform than the original movie Deluxe Concept Camaro Bumblebee (hereafter DCCB), which I also own.

    The robot back to car transformation of BBB really confused the heck out of me. Hasbro kept the lower-leg automorph transformation from DCCB, but they’ve changed the upper legs so that you really have to line them up just so to put the rear end of the car back together, and there’s a big hollow place under the rear windshield (this is where the cannon was held in car mode on DCCB, but BBB’s weapons are built into his arms, so he doesn’t have a separate cannon). When I try to push the car doors back in to complete the transformation to car mode, because of the hollow spot, I very frequently end up crumpling the whole rear end in on itself and then I have to line everything back up just so and try again. I haven’t broken anything, and the fig’s solid enough that I don’t think I’ll break it, but it’s just, as I said before, “fiddly”.

    I absolutely love DCCB’s upper-body transformation. The automorph that swings the doors/wings up as you swing the chest down is so satisfying, it’s just _brilliant_. Also, the way the doors/wings end up sitting close together on his back is very screen-accurate, and there’s no kibble or backpack. Every car part becomes robot armor somewhere on his body, and the whole upper body ends up being very compact and solid when you finish. The only complaints I’ve had about the figure are the poor head sculpt and the disproportionally large roof parts as forearm guards.

    BBB’s upper-body transformation is comparatively rather uninspired. His doors/wings sit very far apart on his back and he has a backpack (made from the whole roof of the car) that barely supports itself on a peg that doesn’t really peg in, more like “rests” in. His chest pieces are similarly wobbly. Every time I pick him up I screw up his chest and his backpack. Maybe I just need to learn how/where to grab him, but his whole upper body just doesn’t feel nearly as solid as DCCB’s.

    As far as movie-accuracy, I already mentioned the wings/doors—I think they’re all wrong on BBB. But I think just about everywhere else, though, BBB wins. I never had any complaint before, personally, about the look of DCCB’s chest, but I have to admit they’ve done a better job making BBB’s chest really pop (as wobbly as it is). And of course he finally has the screen accurate forearm guards. When considering him purely on looks, I can even forgive the backpack, since you most often look at the figure from the front.

    So, I guess, to recap, DCCB is the clear winner on a solid, satisfying transformation from car to robot and back, and he’s a figure I’ll keep and continue to enjoy playing with. When considering looks alone for displaying him on my desk next to ROTF Leader Prime, as dissatisfied as I am with him generally, I think BBB does win out in the end.

    One more thing: the packaging for this toy lists it as suitable for ages five and up. I do not personally know any five-year-olds that would be able to figure out how to transform this toy without a _lot_ of adult supervision. This toy was clearly made for older kids and geeky nostalgic adults like myself.

    I still say the human alliance version is most movie accurate, but this one is fun too. The battle blade is a little lame, but the hand that turns into a cannon is a neat gimmick.

    Well i got the Battle Blades Bumblebee last week and i have to say this head of bumblebee is movie accurate when the battle mask can be taken off and or put on it does slide off the small holes. This Version of Bumblebee is hard to transform. it is good that he has a cannon and blade and the main downfall is transformation because he Head kept poping off during transformation to camero mode. i will say he is the most accurate camero looking bumbleebee. this is a good bumblebee if your trying to collect all the movie molds of the bumblebee other than that i would pass on this if your not a serious transformers fan or a collector….you will need to use the instructions and you might not want to transformer he is the 3rd hardest movie bumblebee to transform so becareful.
