Seibertron.com member Misterfanwank gives us a look at Transformers Prime Weaponizer Bumblebee in the review below. He has also uploaded a video providing some tweaks and fixes for the figure. Enjoy his embedded videos:



He's a decent TOY, but he has a lot of problems, which prevent him from being a truly awesome figure.

Here's a video where I show how to fix some of his problems:

So a 13 minute review of the figure. Cool.

Then a 16 minute video on how to fix the figure...

That screams no buy to me. Even if I was into the weaponizers, I shouldn't have to spend 16 minutes fixing my figure straight out of the box...

Wow, even as one of the most expensive toys in the TF Prime line, they couldn't make a representation of Bee that I'd want to buy.

The wheels on his arms look horrible.

What happened, Hasbro? You were doing great in ROTF, with leader class OP and Starscream.

This was so close to being a great figure but yet again they drop the ball. If they downsized this to deluxe without the gimmick I'd buy it cos overall it looks great.

"Show accurate"? What show is he watching? He calls it the "Most accurate" but then says "It's not accurate". This figure just looks bad. Fake wheels all over the place. Good thorough review but a lot of it seem like it was just trying to convince us that it's not a piece a crap that it is.

lol, my girlfriend has those band-aids. 8) She likes to make everyone she knows use them if they need a band-aid. :lol:

You know, this figure doesn't look too bad. He's pretty well-sculpted, and for once the gimmick doesn't really get in the way. He's fairly well-detailed, the light-piping is great, good transformation and looks pretty good in both modes. Of course, he's way out of scale, but what can you do.

I'm working on the galleries for Weaponizers Optimus Prime and Bumblebee right now. If you can just look at these as out-of-scale collectibles, they're actually really great figures ... especially for the price. I would have paid $40 for these $30 toys all day long. They're a great bang for the buck all things considered.

Two thumbs up Hasbro!

hello kitty :D

And he doesnt look to bad, mainly the back is the problem.
Like most transformers with a body gimmick.

I would be way more interested in a weaponizer megatron though

The FE figure was a close attempt, but the lower body, strange shoulder angle, and scrunched head made it look only passable.

The RiD figure was decently fun, but overall pathetic and it barely looked like the show model.

This figure is more accurate than the other figures, that's all I meant.

I'd be on board with a deluxe or voyager sized version of this figure, that had the same basic sculpt, more articulate ankles, and some chest scrunching. I'd also be willing to wait a year for that, because I already have a bunch of Prime Bumblebees and I'd like to see some more characters get toys.

Weaponiser Optimus Prime is a piece of steaming crap. However, that bumblebee look awesome in every ways. I WILL buy him eventually.
