Transformers Studio Series SS-57 Deluxe Class Offroad Bumblebee Video Review

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
Another year, another new Studio Series wave, another Bumblebee! Thanks to Seibertronian PrimeVsPrime, we have a look at upcoming Wave 9's Deluxe Class Offroad Bumblebee, a brand new mold with some fun transformation points, and sporting his first Earth mode. PrimeVsPrime has some good size comparisons so you can see just how well he matches up with others in the Bumblebee series.



This iteration of 'Bee looks great and has enough to offset any potential Bumblebee figure fatigue. Are you going to add him to your collection? Let us know what you think below!

Had no intention of picking up Off-road Bee but after looking at him at different angles I think I like him more than VW Bee.

Weapon: Dino-Missiles
Yeah. I was going to get one but now I think I'll pass. There's just something about the movie line's need for extra grills and body panels hidden away because they can't make the chest work right that's always bothered me. Just seems like a cheating. It's one of my beefs against the VW version.

It's a really cool mold it's just too bad it just had to be BB. I wonder who will adopt this mold in the future. :VEHI:

Good/fun looking figure. Studio Series is really bumming me out they keep going with peg in/on wheels and don't bother painting the "hubs" peg/caps.... seeing the yellow on the front, and black on the back drives me nuts. I know that four pins is *more* part count... but it really makes for cleaner figures.

I don't mind faux parts much if the effect is pulled off well. What seems weird about this one is that the real grill is just behind the fake grill. Couldn't a swivel joint and a few hinges resolved the whole thing?

It's a cool looking figure and I felt an immediate want, but do I really need another Bee? Hasbro just needs to pop a Swindle head on that bad boy for me to justify the purchase ;)

Though I do think the Bumblebee movie was a refreshing change to the other movies, he still has that movie toy look that I'm not a fan of. I'm not bashing anyone that likes the movie line toys, just not my cup of bot. >:oP
