Bumblebee is hitting theaters in a couple months, and Hasbro has started to ship new products in support of the film. All sorts of new Transformers stuff is hitting stores right now: Bumblebee film items, Transformers: Cyberverse figures (from the new animated series), the Transformers Trading Card game. The list goes on. The Bumblebee line however pays tribute to everyone's favorite Robot in Disguise in so many different forms.
There are figures in all shapes and sizes, with electronics, without electronics, and all sorts of different skill level as far as transformation. One thing is for sure though: if you are a Bumblebee fan, you are on cloud nine currently. Hasbro was nice enough to send over a ton of Bumblebee figures for us to show you, and while I love Bee as much as the next guy, we don't need them all! So, read on for a look at a few of the figures, and at the end we will tell you how to win a Bumblebee of your very own!
One of my favorites is the smallest in their Energon Igniters series. This one gives me real vintage vibes, it takes me right back to the simple days of the old Transformers line from when I was a kid. Anyone can transform this one, any age, and that is the case for all of the ones I opened and fooled around with.
While not the most exciting figures of all-time, I also actually really liked the quick-change Bee and Dropkick figures. Dropkick especially is really cool in both bot mode and vehicle mode. These two in vehicle mode especially display really nice on the shelf. Everything is so bright and fun looking, you can't help but smile as you open them too, they have just done an excellent job from the trailers to the toys bringing a sense of wonder and happiness to the previously bleak film series.
As you can see, there are plenty of options for fans. But how would you like to win a Bee of your own?
We have four versions of Bumblebee to give away: Both versions of the popular Studio Series, the Power Charge version, and a DJ Bumblebee, that will sing one of three popular songs like 'Walk This Way'. All of them are awesome and all of them are simple to win. All you have to do is go on Twitter and tweet at me (@jeremyohio) and tell me what you are most looking forward to in the film when it opens December 21. Make sure to include the hashtag #JoinTheBuzz as well. I will accept entries until 11:59 EST on Friday, October 19. Good luck!
