Bumblebee: The Movie Toys Thread

Postby Va'al » Thu Jan 04, 2018 8:02 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Almost like clockwork, we have some new coded listings for upcoming toys during this year just begun, featuring the likes of the Transformers movie-verse, both for the Movie Masterpiece and Bumblebee: The Movie lines, along with the Studio Series, plus Generations, and Rescue Bots (Academy?).

The full list shown below is courtesy of fellow Transformers fan catz, over on TFW2005, who has a good track record for this type of news. In fact, a lot of names below seem to hail from the next live-action movie from Paramount - including Tiny Turbo Changers, Igniters, Action Attackers, and Roleplay items - but there is a little more in the form of Ironhide in the Movie Masterpiece Line, Generations Titan Class Predaking (perhaps), the new, unknown Project Storm, and some Mighty Muggs.

It's worth noting that the first Project storm listing are suspected to be at a small price point, possibly something like a blind bag.

I'm very interested in that if that's the case. Also very interested in the other Project Storm listing as it has a price point of $10. I really hope these are alongside legends class and it doesn't take their place on shelves.

"TRA MV6 RC AUTOBOT" Hmmmmm I think the answer is clear on who it is...





ARCEE IS BACK BABY!!! /s



In all seriousness it's probably Bee and Stryker is the red card Decepticon from the movie...could be wrong but with only 4 Transformers in this film you don't got much options.

Probably going to use this thread for Bumblebee Movie stuff, once the initial flurry dies out.

We have threads for MPM (including new Ironhide one I just made), Studio Series, and Predaking already.

Silver optimus, a staff member at TFW wrote the following:

A toy journalist I know got to see the Bumblebee Movie toys from Hasbro very recently and said that the whole line feels like a gimmick line with the main line taking a back seat. But he said the gimmicks are way too cool this time ("kids will absolutely love it") and we'll get to see the toys at the Toy Fair as usual.


This is definitely intriguing and gives me the idea that the more tranditional movie toys will instead be the ones found in the Studio Series line.

If there's as few characters in the Bee movie as people say there is then I doubt the movie could sustain a regular figure line of its own anyway so it makes sense to drop them into the SS line.

Just the stuff in the Studio Series line. Aside from those and the MPM stuff the rest appears to be gimmick laden, role play, or non-transforming stuff.

It's been said by Lorenso (Scum) that there is only 4 Transformers in the movie, we all know Bumblebee, then there is the red car Decepticon which is likely a new character or could be Barricade before he went with the whole police thing, Optimus Prime in a cameo role as a radio communication or narration is likely.

Also have a small feeling that Hot Rod could be in this movie as well but that's just a guess based off how he was with Bee back in the day and having TLK introduce him and expand his character in this movie would be cool.

So yeah not many characters to make a toy line from.

i don't think the fact that only 4 transformers appear on the actual movie is a limiting factor. i mean, on tftm, rotf, and dotm, we got quite a lot of new characters in toy form that never make any appearance whatsoever on the actual movie.

Yeah, but DotM is where they stopped doing that. We only got a few extra characters in AoE and TLK couldn't even be bothered to do all of the Decepticons from the movie.

Yeah back then years ago when they did things differently and according to some people had arguably better quality.

Back in AOE and TLK when these gimmick lines first started appearing? The only non movie characters in the toy line were

Aoe: Deluxe Hot Shot (A not so great straight repaint of Crosshairs), Slash (Who was based off a character that was going to be in the film), Snarl and Voyager Slog. ( And they did not even have more then 2 Decepticons in the line)

TLK: Deluxe Slash and Strafe (Both repaints of their AOE figures) and Voyager Scorn

Hell in TLK the only pure original molds that were not repaints or remolded at all were Deluxe Barricade, Berserker, Sqweeks, Steelbane, wave 3 Bee, Cogman (Although he looks like he's a remold of a car bot like Crosshairs),

Voyager Optimus, Megatron, Hound, Nitro, Scorn and leaders Megatron and Dragonstorm which makes it 12 original molds this is compared to the remaining 8 remold/repaints of the line.

Kind of rambeling here but point was is that Hasbro doesn't do a lot of toy only characters in their movie lines and why would they? There is no comics or video games for them to show up in.

TRA MV6 MASTERPIECE BUMBLEBEE MOVIE AUTOBOT (BUMBLEBEE)

Is it me or is this saying that they plan to release a Masterpiece version of the new Movie-verse Beetle Bumblebee. This would also make it the first immediate 1st party Masterpiece (While 3rd party Masterpiece-like figures for TLK Optimus and Hot Rod are on the way the most recent designs to become Masterpieces were the 2007 Bumblebee and Optimus, produced 10 years later, not counting the HFTD repaints)

Bumblebee's New Robot Mode for 2018 New Simba Dickie Products

Postby william-james88 » Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:21 am

The London Toy Fair is underway and while there will be new toys revealed, as before, these new toys are from Simba Dickie, who makes licensed die cast cars and figures for the European market. So no actual product from Hasbro proper. Still, the preview image below of the packaging from one of these lincensed toys (an RC car in this case), gives us our very first look at Bumblebee's robot mode for his movie coming out later this year. We have cropped it as well. It is definitely a sleeker look with minimal kibble, giving him a younger look (though what is 25 years younger when you are already millions of years old?).

This product image is all we have from Simba Dickie so far but they have also released a complete list of all upcoming products, which can also be seen below. Their toys can be seen live at booth E135 of the london toy fair. All this information was found on TFW2005

NOTE: We have been asked to remove the image. Once it's available through official channels, news will be posted again.

You can see one of the VW headlights on his chest and the fan belt/engine assembly on his lower body. Interesting design though, hope we get some more pictures soon!

EDIT: You can see the tail lights on the yellow pieces on his legs.

EDIT 2: Judging from the picture on the top of the box, he still has tires behind his shoulders and door wings like the usual design.

Well, they certainly went with a "younger" look (despite the fact that bee is a frickin metal robot who's MILLIONS of years old). Kind of confusing why he'd go from such a badass in WWII to such a rounded unthreatening appearance in the 80's (other than the obvious kid appeal)

I cannot say how hard I am rolling my eyes at the decision to make this character look like a 5-year-old Halloween mask of a bumblebee with bug mouth and springs-with-balls-on-the-end style antenna. This kind of dumbing-down, mainstreaming of great, memorable characters makes me sick. >:oP

EDIT: I should add that I LOVE the choices to put the movie in the 80s and use this iconic vintage bug. I can see myself buying some toys and adding a decent third party head on them.

This is what the franchise should have done from the start — place the events in the 1980s. It opens the door to using vintage devices like cassettes and classic vehicles like G1 Primes truck model, great nostalgic period music, and not to mention tugs at the heartstrings of all the classic fans.

@Gothasarus there wasn't a 80s revival in the air when they made the 07' movie so that was destined to always be a modern reinterpretation (not that there is anything wrong with that- we do not need to adhere to g1 afterall...other than the other g1 references they already did)

Anyhoo, this reminds me of the prime design to a small extent but it doesn't bother me. What I want to see is how the movie actually plays out. As the first tf film without Bay at the helm, it's got a lot to prove (like if it ducks can we still blame bay?)

I think the cartoonish look for Bee is just the box art style. I can't wait to see some figures or CGI renders to get a better idea of what he'll look like in the movie.

I am really excited to see how this plays out and I dont think this film has to prove anything since it can only do better than what w have gotten so far, not worse. And this director is amazing.

This also reminds me of the Prime style and thats great. When I saw Prime I was glad to see the merge between more realistic movie aesthetic and smooth surfaces like what we usualyl associate to the Transformers look. I wished it was what the movie verse looked like to begin with so seeing it on this movie verse bee is a step in the right direction.

The movie designs were interesting, and kudos to all the staff that worked to bring life to the designs but I do think if the heads were done more in a traditional style then that would of gone a little way to solve the problem. That being said one of the things I love about each new tf series we get is how they'll look (and in the case of the cartoon series, how they'll make toys out of them). Admittedly I'm way out of the loop on this film as I don't know who the director is or what their past work is. I'll have to remedy that.

@Gothasarus not a problem :-)

Also thanks to everyone for not pointing out that my autocorrect changed "sucks" to "ducks" making my comment about bay nonsensical
