Thanks to a number of Seibertronians sending us the notification, including Carnivius_Prime, Scottimus Prime, and ScottyP, we have images of the first actual reveal of a Transformers Bumblebee Movie figure from the upcoming toyline that will accompany the theatrical release in December!

Its full name is Power Charge Bumblebee - a name we had seen in previous news for the toyline as Igniters Power [something] and Power Core - and is a transforming robot to Volkswagen beetle, with charging chest gimmick and moveable battlemask.

More images can be seen on the Nerdist article covering the reveal here, which we've also misrrored below!

Featuring robot sounds and phrases activated by spinning the power core in his chest, as well as engine-revving noises for the vehicle, Power Charge Bumblebee fully transforms into car mode in 17 steps.

What’s this? A gimmicky figure with good articulation and detail? Cyberverse should be taking notes.

I didn’t expect much from the Bumblebee movie line (outside of studio series), but this is actually pretty impressive!

Ah is this the correct thread then?

:)


For a non-generations/studio figure it actually looks a lot of fun. Looking forward to seeing the Studio figure too but may also get this one for funsies.

By the way this bit "including Carnivius_Prime, Scottimus Prime, and ScottyP" amuses me cos... well... guess what my first name is? :P

It looks like bee fused with crosshairs, and the end result isn’t half bad!

That Bumblebee toy is also made for kids and guess what? It doesn't suck nuts and bolts.

So there isn't an excuse besides bad engineering design on Hasbro's part.

Stop defending bad figure engineering

Same. It transforms, has a decent looking alt mode and robot mode, dont really have any issues especially when this doesnt target us. Looks like a god toy for kids, not dissimilar to other fun toys in the past like in the UT trilogy.

But thats the point. Both this toy and toys from the cyberverse line are for the exact same audience. And this one is a far better execution (aside from Shockwave)

If it weren't for the unfortunate chest I could have seen myself buying this. This is what Allspark Powered should have been, they would have sold a ton of them if that were the case. This bodes well for the line, but I fear that knowing the rest of the line is going to be heavily gimmicked this is the best they have to offer (for kids, SS aside).

I might pick this up, it definitely makes up for some of the crap we're getting from Cyberverse (excluding Shockwave and possibly that Ultra class Starscream) Hopefully the rest of the line looks this good.

Agreed. The chest is a major downer. Outside of that, I'm seriously kinda stunned. This looks surprisingly good!

Yeah i had a reply to my twitter post about this figure (mentioning that i think it's better designed than the Cyberverse figures) and the guy said this is aimed at older kids and I pointed out that both this figure and all the Warriors and Scouts of Cyberverse say "Age 6+" on the box. Heck I expected the Cyberverse ones to have a younger age on them cos most 6 year olds I've known over the years been smarter than what Hasbro seem to assume.

But it's still disappointing enough to not bother wasting money on it.

I mean how much is it going to really cost though? $15? $20? I wouldn't really call that a waste for a toy, as an adult paying for toys in general is a bit of a waste of money. (This isn't to say Adults can't enjoy toys but they don't have the childlike attachment they used to have when they were younger.)

yeah, sometimes feel like everything i buy for myself that isn't a life essential (like food, and just enough food to live on) is a waste of money and that i should donate way more than i do to those less fortunate than even I but not sure if that's a healthy way of thinking. I dunno if I'd buy this particular toy myself as I'm waiting for the Studio toy as that's more my thing but if I was to receive this one as a gift I'd be quite happy with that and I reckon most kids would be too. I dunno what I'm talking about. I'm tired. Point is this VW Bee is suprisingly decent for a 'gimmick' TF figure and I would hope it pleases a lot of kids particularly on christmas day if they so happen to receive it from Santa. Ok i'm done for the night. must rest. Night folks. :)

This looks surprisingly fun for a "gimmick" toy, I think I'll pick this guy up! I'm mostly impressed that he has full articulation, they actually managed to get the wheels in his feet in the right position, and the battle mask not only looks fantastic but they used clear plastic for the eye sections! on a non-Masterpiece toy! I'll probably paint him up a bit to match the colors better but even if not he looks like a lot of fun.

Can't wait to see the Studio Series/potential Masterpiece versions of this guy if his "kiddy" figures are this good.
