I was a little interested until I saw the review. Why did they make the Evasion Bee that glaring yellow? The gold looks so much better. The cars looked decent, but then I saw the robot modes and I remembered why I didn't want Evasion Bee the first go 'round. Looks great as a car, looks awful as a bot. I like my DOTM Cyberfire Bee and Leader Bee just fine and I don't need another movie Bee right now. I'm still waitin' for Cogman and Dragonstorm. The local TRU has cleared out all TLK deluxes they had, so I'm hopin' to see the next wave here soon.

Yeah... I'd be into it at $40-45, maybe $50, but @60 is way too much for (in my case) only one new mold and 3 figures I mostly want to paint. I'll wait and hope the price drops after a while.

I'm not hacked off about the price, just that they put the 1976 Chevy as a 1977.

The world doesnt need more bumblebees. I never understood why they dont fill up any bumblebee molds with blue or green plastic and show Glyph or Tap Out some love. But I must admit, I like the package design with the garage concept. Not enough to buy it, but cool neverless...

When the hell is that TLK Bee gonna be here in UK? I'm getting really tired of waiting. Are those ebay listings based in Taiwan legit? Cos if so I might get Bee & Cogman together (when my income issues are sorted)
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

Didn't you get the memo? Kids love Bumblebee.

(although I don't know any kid that loves him enough to buy 3 toys of the exact same Bumblebee in a single pack)

Transformers Tribute Bumblebee Evolution 3-Pack Found at Brick-and-mortar retail!

Postby Bounti76 » Tue Feb 05, 2019 12:02 am

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
Greetings, fellow Seibertronians! While the Transformers Tribute line has not seen much action, well, ever (numbering a grand total of three releases so far), that doesn't mean it isn't still around!

For those not familiar with the line, it uses existing molds from different Transformers toylines, redecoed and/or lightly retooled into representations of movieverse characters. In the case of movie Optimus, the molds used were WFC Optimus and Titans Return Kup (with a new Titan Master and deco). In the case of the line's Bumblebee 3-pack, it took Bee's original 2007 Camaro toy, his Age of Extinction "High Octane" mold, and the super-scarce-at-retail The Last Knight Camaro mold, all slightly redecoed. The only other release so far was a deco of the 2007 movie Leader Optimus Prime mold.

While these were Amazon online exclusives, it seems that at least one of the sets is making its way to retail discount stores in the U.S., as well. While perusing the shelves at TJMaxx in West Bountiful, Utah, this evening, yours truly was slightly shocked to find two of the Bumblebee Evolution 3-packs on the shelf, and at a very low price of $19.99, or about the price of a single figure! Photo proof is included below.

Have you found any rarely or newly sighted figures that haven't been the subject of a news article? Please email us and let us know, and happy hunting!

Between TJ Maxx and Marshall's there are over 2000 stores so if each get 2 then maybe 4000 of them out there. I know that most stores also received 4 Overlords.
