    This deluxe Bumblebee figure comes packed with a variant of IDW Comics’ “Spotlight: Bumblebee” for the same price as previous deluxes that had no comics, nice deal. This cover art is the Retailer Incentive character art for that original issue but on a different background and closer-up. That character art is tolerable although the left hand is creepy robotic, and the face is too mature.

    This figure is Bumblebee from the IDW comic series, around the end of the Transformers Ongoing series, “Police Action” specifically, the issue is from March of 2013, not long before this figure came out in July.

    Vehicle mode is very good, I quite like this, very solid too. Looks clearly inspired by the art in the book’s vehicle mode, but more aggressive. Rolls well despite facade robot chest being under the engine bay. Yellow plastic is a touch too translucent in places, as is often the case, but the deco is alright otherwise. Stinger weapons peg into the rear fenders, they don’t look particularly well-integrated though. Transformation to this is interesting, although I am pretty sure they left out a step in the instructions about sliding the rear fenders out; there’s also some alignment that requires everything to be in the right place at the right time.

    Robot mode is a touch simple and hollow, and too bulked out for my tastes, but has an ok amount of detail overall. The upper torso telescopes down but isn’t clear where it stops, if it pushes all the way then it locks out the waist articulation and causes the back to bend away, but if it stops at the first stop then the chest gets in the way of the chin and it’s a bit floppy. My biggest frustration is the woefully loose knees, kneepads, and ankles – this is just a head-scratcher as to why these would be so bad. Runner up would be the greenish yellow paint applied to the forearms and the stinger weapons, it doesn’t come close to matching, they shouldn’t have deco’ed those parts black underneath if they wanted yellow matching. Articulation is good, shoulders are a little confusing perhaps, and head is only a swivel. Stingers can plug into the undersides of the forearms, or snap together to make a nice blaster; leaving out Bumblebee’s cane was a mistake though. Transformation is an odd one to get started, but mostly follows the basics of an Autobot car.

    Overall, Bumblebee has good points but also some areas where he doesn’t bring the heat at all, and those are mostly in robot mode where it counts, so he gets a passing but not glowing grade from me.

    Not the Best Bumblebee, November 13, 2013

    Bumblebee is one of my all time favorite characters. This version of Bumblebee leaves a lot to be desired.

    In robot mode, he is okay. He doesn’t look very movie like, nor TV show like… from any of the TV shows. His legs are weird, his doors are mounted on his shoulders, so they look strange when he is moving his arm. The paint on his forearms do not match the rest of his yellow, in the least. At least he has the classic Bumblebee head. He also has a pretty good weapon set that can combine to make a super-weapon.

    In vehicle mode, he looks like a Mustang GT-500. With the hood scoop, a 1967 to be more precise. I guess making him look like a Camaro again was not an option. The car looks a little off. I am seeing a theme here. The front end has a huge bump along the hood. It looks less like a style choice and more of an accident that he was in.

    Transformation of Bee was okay for the most part. I had trouble with the back window of mine, leaving quite a large gap back there, where the two legs would not click together.

    Overall, I am not impressed with this version of Bee. We recently had a Bumblebee in the War for Cybertron line, so we really didn’t need another one. I am a little worried we will see him again as Cliffjumper, but hopefully this is one-and-done for this body. Only get him if you are a super fan of Bumblebee, but don’t go out of your way.

    We loved this toy on Christmas morning, but I have to say, the 24 year old it was purchased for could barely get it to “transform” using the instructions! This toy would probably frustrate a little guy because of all the complicated pieces and mechanisms it takes to fold it properly into its vehicle shape. I would recommend only getting this toy if there will be an adult standing close by and for said adult to NEVER lose the pictorial instructions that come with the toy! Otherwise, it’s totally awesome!
