I see Bumblebee with a bucket on his head. Is this a real character inspired by anything comic or cartoon ?

Just the Alternator line, after a happy accident. He's basically a Decepticon Windcharger with a head to match (the original was actually Overdrive).
In the Binaltech line this toy got tossed about everywhere, from the original yellow deco as G2 Wildrider, to a grey and silver one as Blackarachnia, to finally in white and pink as G1 Arcee. :lol:

and again some big shot capitalised on the overused bumblebee mold to make another unattractive exclusive...

Looks like they've taken the body of bee and put motormaster's square head on top of it to see what it would look like :SICK:

Decepticharge? :oops:

who the hell came up with this ridiculous name in the first place?? :BLACKEYE: :BLACKEYE: :BLACKEYE: :BLACKEYE:

One of my favorite Alternators... once you replace the missing gun barrel. Deco based on G2 Wildrider.

Hasbro. You know, it's been around for 8 years. It predates Airachnid and Lockdown.
