We have gotten several reports of new Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee toys found at Target. These are rereleases of the Cyberverse spark armour figures. We have the Megatron pack which is unchanged and a Bumblebee pack where the armour is a redeco of the garbage truck armour that came with Grimlock. They are just shy of $25 a piece. For those wondering, this line is basically to have more Bumblebee product on the shelves. All previous Studio Series Bumblebee toys have sold out, so here is another chance for fans and families to get some along with other toys for different age groups. No different than another Batman line from Mattel/Spin Master really, to have more toys of a company most famous characters on the shelves.
We also have a video review from our own Chuckdawg for the core class Bumblebee figure that comes with Spike.

Transformation is relatively easy, any issues are due to the size and ball joints being ball joints, and I have to tip my hat to the weapon storage. Spike, while being simple, is a fun little addition. All in all, a great set.

I misread that spark armor garbage truck's name as "trash can."
Was there a core class bumblebee listed for kingdom? I know some people were speculating the exo-suit figure will come with an SS G1 dinobot, so maybe both parts of the set are prereleases?

Not overly interested in this line (I’ve never really understood the hype surrounding Bumblebee) but I might try to seek out that core class figure simply for the Exo-Suit Spike.

Same here for me. Anyone know if any more artistic fans have developed a 3D model CAD file for a Bumper replacement head for the "Core Class" Bumblebee of this line? The only other thing of interested to me has been the release of the RotF version of Bumblebee with the Sam Witwicky figure.
I'm really otherwise confused as to why this line even exists, unless Hasbro is just having a lot of difficulty coming up with the next Transformers kids show and feels they need some "simpler" stop-gap products on the shelves to keep up brand recognition and sales until the next iteration of kid-friendly Transformers is ready.

Actually the more I see of it, the more I get annoyed. I was thinking/hoping that with Cyberverse ending, there would be more room on the shelves for WFC and SS, since no new main line has been announced by Hasbro. It's odd because leaks, and eventually promotion, start several months in advance about most lines, and even sub-lines, but THIS seemingly came out of nowhere. It's almost like with no live action movie, and no series to promote- Hasbro was lost, and decided to clog Target shelves with this "filler" that nobody asked for. Why is it this stuff is everywhere now, but Kingdom and SS that most fans have been anticipating are scarce??
As much as I dislike Walmart, the Netflix, and TR Headmasters in Original Series style packaging is pretty creative. Target definitely got the short end of the stick on exclusive sublines this time around.

End cap at a Target in Murrieta, CA. It's on the back end/side, not in the main aisle.
