Sadly, we don't know. And we'll probably never know because G1 Bumblebee's proportions are off, being akin to a Super-Deformed Penny Racer
. The reason is that he's supposed to be one: in the original Microman
line, all toys were supposedly life-size in scale, 1:1. Megatron, Soundwave, Blaster and Perceptor also came from that line.
Masterpiece Bumblebee has realistic proportions however, so the year will be easier to guess. Just make sure it's from before 1982
