Gameinformer has our first look at the Dancing and Singing Bumblebee toy that's coming out as part of the Bumblebee movie toyline. What does he do and what makes him so special? Well he can record one's voice and remix it into a variety of tunes from Aerosmith and even the Transformers film. From here he dances. This terrifying piece of plastic will be available in the winter of 2018 to annoy many parents with small children who love Bumblebee. We've included a description of the toy below as well as a picture of it in and out of the packaging.

Transformers: Bumblebee – DJ Bumblebee
Drop the beat with the DJ Bumblebee figure. Using Sing-Back Tech, this figure records kids’ voices, and then plays back the soundbite in sync with 1 of 3 awesome tracks. Kids control the mix – move the figure’s left arm to switch songs and right arm to control the tempo. Figure comes pre-loaded with music clips Walk This Way, originally by Aerosmith, Bust A Move, originally by Young MC, and the original G1 Transformers Robots in Disguise theme song. The DJ Bumblebee figure also dances to the beat during playback. Product does not convert, but can still mix it up.

I can't wait for video of people recording 'inappropriate' audio in and what the result is, some 'Angry Video Game Nerd' catchphrases would be excellent.

Maybe because it was a repaint/remold of the "superior" BB-8?

That Bee though WILL sell. That I'm pretty sure. It's great looking, it talk, and it's BEE! Kids still love the Bee.
...R... Right?

Think it best to post pics of both versions of Studio VW Bee (yellow and gold) just to relieve folk that the backpack looks to be mistransformed on the pic of the yellow one and is much more compact looking the way it's been transformed on the gold.

From the Hasbro breakfast event at SDCC, we have the Target exclusives for the Bumblebee film. The idea with this film is the retro look and to go with that theme, Hasbro is releasng Titans Return Soundwave again with the boom box resembling Kanye's glasses. The big news though for fans is that this is the way Hasbro is releasing Titans Return Frenzy (aka the blue casette). These are two sets of exclusives. One will be simply Soundwave while the other will be three casettes and a one step Bumblebee.

Also on the show floor were all the Bumblebee move toys we had previously seen in the review earlier this week. We get a better idea of their size here. The idea behind this movie line, this time, is that it is 100% targetted towards kids. Most center around the igniter gimick where you can plug in an allspark like device. Any traditional transformer toy aimed at collectors will be relegated to the Studio Series line. Since there are only a few robots in the movie, the Bumblebee toy line will be filled with characters who may not appear in the film, like Megatron in his ROTF body. You can click here for a breakdown of the entire line.

There are other products as well such as a mask and other role playing items.

The San Diego news stream continues, and this time around we have our official galleries from the Hasbro breakfast showcase event. This gallery is specifically of the Target exclusive subline from the Bumblebee Movie, which includes a strange collection of figures, from Titans Return Soundwave and his cassettes all in new decks, to a bumblebee remold of the Age Of Extinction Drift One Step Changer.

Between this subline and the inclusion of rare G1 cassette bots in this year's bumblebee SDCC exclusive set, it makes you wonder about the importance of Cassette tapes in the upcoming film!
Check out as hand picked selection of images below, and click on any of them to be taken to our full high quality gallery of images. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more news out of SDCC!

You might be surprised to hear this but my #1 want for this line is that big talking bee. IMO much better looking than the SS deluxe as I can tell. He'll be a perfect match for my HFTD Battle Ops Bee.

The lost potential in these TR retools/redecos annoys me. I'm sure there's reasons why they released these figures in these colors but oh well.

Soundwave could easily have been Soundblaster. That would've given even more reason than some retooled parts to go in on this mold again.

Rumble,...er I guess Frenzy since TR Rumble is red, is nice and all but I've already made my peace with not getting the pair being the same mold for TR and went out and got the United two pack. The Toyhax label sets look great but they weren't cutting it for me for the blue guy.

It's awesome that we're getting a new Buzzsaw so I can get that Sundor upgrade for CW Buzzsaw. However...

Howlback. It's great to see her but it's a shame that Buzzsaw wasn't done in blue to be Garboil. All three would then be blue and it would be an expanded Cobalt Senteries set.

Now will there also be some Autobots equivalents to go with these Decepticons?

I'd love to see a Twincast instead of another Blaster if that's the case.

As with Rumble and Frenzy, I got the TFSS Eject and Rewind since the Toyhax set wasn't working for me with Eject either. They're fine for Enemy, Code Red, Flipsides and Dispensor though.

Will we see Garboil in this theoretical set to go with Howlback or would it be Sundor or Blockrock instead?

Then who else? Glit? Nightprowler? Blackcat?
