Recall that Transformers Bumblebee Energon Igniters Speed Series Bumblebee, the Volkswagen version? Well, did you want it, but clear yellow and missing some silver paint? Well I hoped you are subscribed to the Telebi-Kun magazine in Japan, because it'll be bundled for free in the 2019 April issue! This information comes from snakas blog, in which the folks there snapped a picture of the figure, as well as what they believe to be the release date of April 2019, as mentioned above.

This clear yellow version of Bumblebee is actually the first Japanese release of the Volkswagen Speed Series Bumblebee mold in Japan. In fact, I believe this is the first Energon Igniter released in Japan! I say this since, well, the Bumblebee toyline in Japan is looking a little sparse (with only the Power Charge Bumblebee and exclusive Leader Class Legendary Optimus Prime).

So, are you interested in this most likely, limited, release of this sweet boy? Let us know in the Pub forums below!

Great news! Thanks for the info. I don't think we need to be subscribed to the magazine, though, as it's fairly easy to pick this magazine up in all good bookshops in Japan.

In this age of knowing everything, it's not common to stumble upon brand new toys ate retail we had no clue were coming. It happened yesterday though when TF fan gabumon found the new Bumblebee Movie Energon Igniters Power Series Ratchet at a Walmart in Northern Utah. The sighting was posted on the TFW2005 message boards. Like other Power Series toys, it is $10 and needs the motor from the Power Plus toys to do its gimmick.
Also, while there is Ratchet in the Bumblebee film, with a great G1 design, this toy uses the Dark of the Moon / Age of Extinction design with an albino looking robot mode. The vehicle mode is an ambulance though, for once. For those wanting this toy, its UPC is 6 30509 79526 0. Also, depending on distribution, this may be a rarer toy since it isn't part of the standard wave 2 case but actually part of a revision wave 2 case.

Here is the full revision wave 2 case content from Entertainment Earth:

1x TRA MV6 ENERGON IGNITERS POWER HOT ROD
3x TRA MV6 IGNITERS POWER BUMBLEBEE CAMARO
2x TRA MV6 ENERGON IGNITERS POWER SHATTER
2x TRA MV6 ENERGON IGNITERS POWER RAM (Ratchet)

Maybe a war wound or he ran out of white paint to cover his movie green?

Technically, that sentence would imply that the TOYS ate the retail market or while concept of what retail is...

I’m going with this interpretation, that would explain why SS Devastator components are being sold across multiple waves.

whats the friggin deal!?

every piece o scrap movie in the Bayverse
cranks out figures for every slagin bot
that spends 15 seconds on screen.

even Wheelie has 3 figs!
each RC twin has a kajillion iterations and repaints
for the 9 seconds of screentime they got!
We even have bot toys for vehicles in the films
that DONT HAVE BOT MODES!!

What do we get for BUMBLEBEE?
A plethora of kiddie carp!
& 2 halfway decent figs!
Studio Series
Bumblebee & Dropkick.
(a 3rd if u count MPM-7.)

WTFraggleRock!?

OH!
i forgot SS Shatter.
oops...
okay, 3 SEMI-decent toys!!


am i wrong!?
PLEASE, SOMEONE TELL ME IM WRONG!!!

Where is Prime!?
Optimus is guaranteed $$!

You do know that the Cybertron scene was made much later in production and that the toylines are all made and developed longer before the Cybertron stuff was finished right?

The same reason why figures of characters are based off concept art rather then the final designs in the films?

(Also oh my god grammar, which I know is kind of ironic coming from me)

Weird enough this toy is basically what I imagined one of Ratchet's assistants to look like in my Bumblebee movie "What if" that I posted in another thread and this guy would of died.

(He would of been Ratchet's Bee movie design with this coloration and the helmet would of been inspired by Movie Ratchet but the face was the same as Ratchets)

SS Prime is coming. We just saw that reveal a week or 2 back. Frankly, it looks good, and if we werent getting Siege Prime at the same time I would be all over the Bee Prime, but they pretty much check all the same boxes with different styles, so I am less apt to get it.

I personally think the bee toyline is doing a good job, especially as more kid friendly toys (you know the market they want to grab with the movie) are all here with more collector focused entries in the Studio Series line, we may get more bee characters as time goes on in the ss line.

Exactly. I've yet to see a single truly bad toy from this line. All the toys also seem pretty solid and of high quality. Not like Cyberverse, which is 3/4 pure garbage.

Well, Bee is the marketing mascot since 10 years and it work so...
Anyway, the "shilling" fallacy is a /toy/ thing. You're not allowed to love anything without being accused over there. #-o
