Fast forward to 2007 and Bumblebee is now a Camaro, the complete opposite of a small car and he's ready to fight at the drop of a hat. Look, I'm not a G1 purist, but that isn't Bumblebee. As such, I've pretty much refrained from purchasing any of the post-movie 'Bees unless they've been in the Generations line. Then Hasbro went and put a Camaro Bumblebee in the Generations line. Then again, it could be a Dodge Challenger. I'm not a car guy.
BigBadToystore. It wound up being cheaper to order the entire wave than just ordering everybody separately minus Bumblebee. As it it, I now have my first Camaro 'Bee. This Bumblebee isn't the same character from the movies, rather he's from the IDW Transformers comic. He was a Camaro for about an issue during the Police State storyline, if I remember correctly. To be honest, I really don't remember, and I don't want to re-read all of those Mike Costa issues because I can't stand them. Then he went back to his regular body, which suited me fine.
Transformation is extremely simple on this figure. It almost has a G-1 simplicity in the transformation scheme. Once you get him into robot mode, he looks like this.
If you're looking for a short, compact 'Bee, this is not the figure for you. This Bumblebee, while the same size as the War for Cybertron Bumblebee, the Thrilling 30 version is leaner than bulkier War For Cybertron figure.
I just dig that head sculpt. It's pretty much the main reason why I like this figure. Now I'm left wondering if Hasbro is going to release Cliffjumper as a redeco of this figure. Cliffjumper gets no love nowadays. It's all about Bumblebee.
