I would say that car dropkick is an awesome enough figure to be worth owning even if you are also downscaling your SS collection. He's that damn good.


I agree.

Upscaling the TKL voyager could do the trick for an easy start.


Maybe I'm in the minority but I thought the TLK Scorn looked kinda crap compared to the AoE Deluxe (they seem a bit overly-blocky). Both versions seem to have their own benefits, so I think slimming down the voyager's shape to have a more organic shape and possibly working some magic to make the jaw finally end up on the hips would do wonders. If we got a new Scorn (and considering we're entering a Dinobot heavy time, that's very possible) I'd probably get it since I enjoy the design.

Also I've always personified Scorn as a fembot for both variety's sake and for the pun in their name.

If this is all that High Octane Bee is going to get in Studio Series, then I'll be rather disappointed. A new mold of that design was one of my biggest wishes for this line.

New Buzzworthy Bumblebee Crash Combiners and Worlds Collide 4 Pack Found in US at Target

Postby william-james88 » Mon Jul 26, 2021 9:54 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
We have new US Sightings for the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line. Firstly, the Crash Combiners Primelock and Bumblegrim were found at a Target in Milltown, New Jersey. Secondly, at that same Target, the Worlds Collide 4 pack (the one with Fangry) was also found. While it was previously found at Walmart, it was never in the system. This time, it very much is, since we've already seen the listing for this Target exclusive, and is priced at $84.99 USD. The Walmart inventory was clearly a mistake and you should probably only look at Target if you are on the hunt for this set.

If you have found them, share your sightings with our community in the sightings section and on our boards in your region related thread.

Both sightings come from TFW2005 user shadow panther. Vector Oracle from the same site, shared some in hand images of the crash combiners for those curious of the new decos.

In the past, Tesco was pretty good at getting the Target Exclusives but in this case, and considering the state of Transformers toys at general retail...I'd either hope that Smyths or the Entertainer bid for it or that Hasbro Pulse UK adds it to their partner tab.

Otherwise it's waiting to see if In Demand Toys or Kapow get them.

Thanks @ZeroWolf. Didn't know Tesco was 1 to check.

I'd say keep it on the down-low, but life's too short, Game.co.uk and Sports Direct of all places are doing previous Earthrise figures at joke prices (£25 leader class, £60 SkyLynx).

Origins Bee or Fris-Bee as I like to call him is also out in the wild, found him with the Worlds Collide 4-pack today.

Weird note, the box for Origins Bee doesn't have a plastic window. Just wide open, he must have requested natural ventilation or something.

I wanted to share some initial thoughts on Origins Bee having just opened him and transformed him once to frisbee mode and back again. Wow, what an excellent toy! the transformation is unique and fun. I know the figure is small, but the legs alone are as complex as most regular sized deluxes.

20210727_195132.jpg


I don't watch reviews, so I'm not sure if this has been mentioned anywhere else, but Buzzworthy Bee shows us our first glimpse of Hasbro's (almost) zero plastic packaging. The only plastic on the packaging is the plastic hang tag for the store pegs, that is it. The ties are rattan. The box has no plastic window.

20210727_193619.jpg


Also impressive was that the gun and energon rods were secured only by creative cardboard oragami. The ties are only twisted and taped down. Honestly this was the easiest TF to open in quite some time. I only used a knife to cut the tape on the flaps (because I'm OCD) and the rest was done by hand.

20210727_193638.jpg


Bee also comes in just a hair taller than is ER Cliff/Netflix Bee selves.

My only real gripe with him, is not being able to turn his head around in altmode.. other than that, he's actually quite fun

Really like the chest plate becoming the front of the vehicle!

Nice to see someone is watching thank you friend. I mean that at 42 years of age I still have an issue with the English language and meant to say Shellformer.

For anyone wondering, it looks like the versus 2-pack cases have 2x Bee vs. Barricade, with 1 each of Bee vs. Dropkick and Bee vs. Stinger.

I'll have my chances to finally get Barricade. I already have Clunker Bee so I'll most likely trade my spare with my friend.

When you do, could you post whether or not it has the "to punish and enslave" tampo? Someone over on tfw said it was removed for that release of Barricade.

Oh for F.... #-o
You gotta be kidding me.

Someone would surely get to the set before I do. It will be important to know because if he don't have that legendary tampo, I'm not buying.

Got the Buzzworthy Wirkds collide set and the QC is atrocious. Fangey sucks, HARD. And Primal's chest is very loose along with with the bicep swivel.

I've got the loose chest on Nemesis Primal, but not the bicep issue. My Fangry isn't great, but isn't terrible either. The main QC issue on mine is loose knees, but not too loose to stand up and pose. Everything else is fairly tight. The only other issue is the legs/tail in alt mode not wanting to stay tabbed together or being finicky, but all 3 monster bots were pretty similar there, so I expected that.

Bee is nice and tight, haven't transformed Blackarachnia yet but bot mode is tight so far.

Huh, I need to open mine then. I grabbed the only Worlds Collide set and one of the Origin Bee figures. Brickseek didn't show any of the WC sets, so I was surprised to find it.

I really like Origin Bee, and I wasn't interested when first announced. I feel the fuel rods don't serve much purpose since the tips are more than 5mm. So unless we get a boxy Wheeljack that can carry them, they just kind of sit there.

It could only be TRU. And it was only 109$. It will probably be on 20% discount within 3 months and at that price it will be a pretty good deal.
