With the holidays right around the corner, it is about time for Transformers to start showing up en masse in every store that will take them, some of them new, some of them old. And the old would be what was found today.

Thanks to yours truly, we have news that several items from the Bumblebee movie toyline have made their way to TJMaxx/Marshalls. TJMaxx/Marshalls are discount stores that usually take in older overstock and sell it for a reduced price compared to other stores. Among the items found at TJMaxx this afternoon was the Nitro Series Blitzwing, the roughly voyager-sized figure of Blitzwing that comes with the engine block to power your figures. He was found for $9.99. Sharing the shelf with him were the Bumblebee arm cannon interactive play item and the DJ Bumblebee figure.

The final item found was an oddity: a Bumblebee Movie Voice Changer Mask Sqweeks. Much like other kids voice-changer masks, this helmet is designed to be wore by kids and speak, using Sqweek's voice. This is such an oddity since this mask was featured in The Last Knight marketing, and also made its way into the Bumblebee toyline, but received very little mention in any media, and it appears that it sat and is now making its way to the discount stores.

So with these sightings in mind, keep an eye on your discount stores, and let us know what you find!

I didn't even know they reissued that mask for the BB movie (or maybe I did but forgot).

I didn't know they reissued this either, it was a surprise, and I could not find it in our news posts either

I hope you will all pardon this thread resurection but I got into a good discussion about the VW licence and wanted to continue it. The Bumblebee movie really opened the floodgates with that licence. Sure, we already had the MP (the first ever VW Licenced BB toy) but this movie just gave us a truckload. We got the studio series, the MP, the giant eletrocnic one and even a licenced Tiny Turbo changer, to name a few.

And it got me wondering, of all of those, were there any good toys? I ask because the SS volkswagen Bee was not great and I never handled the MP, nor that giant eletronic one with the ball in the middle.

The first MP Bumblebee is fantastic. I just got it, but I really like the Netflix Bee too.

The MP Bee is really good, I didn't handle the subsequent releases. But the Netflix version is pretty much the same size and looks just like it, but at a better price. I was disappointed with the 1st SS Bee I didn't bother getting any of the others, VW or Camaro. (Plus I never liked the character and I thought the Bee movie was crap.)

My question is: did VW give Hasbro a license for all Bee figures, or do they approve them as they get made? Like, Hasbro makes a prototype and if VW likes it they approve it, or they just tell them for a price they can slap the VW logo on whatever they want?

Since this is a movie thread, I was referring to the movie MP VW bumblebee

The MP never interested me because it's not movie accurate at all and I can't forgive that backpack after the magic they did with the previous MPM Camaro Bee. The 3P offerrings are not perfect, but they proves it could be done. The only SS Bee I ever bothered getting was Old Camaro Bee and it's trash.

Ironically, I bought the giant VW Bee with the ball in it's chest because it didn't pretended to be movie accurate and looked like a ton of fun. And yes, it is! He's fun to transform, have nice gimmicks, and look amazing next to my other gimmicky giant beez, Battle Ops Gold and BH Stealth Bee.

If you can hunt down a used one for cheap, he's totally worth it.

Speed series Bumblebee is a joy to handle.He is a updated version of idea of the original G1 toy.

Accurate or not,the Masterpiece version is a beautiful toy.


The toys like the Nitro series,Power Plus series,Turbo Changer and Power Charge are all solid toys.There is nothing inherently wrong with them.

The Masterpiece is a pretty fun toy, bit finnicky to transform, but the robot mode is really fun and you can do a lot with it.

the legion sized Bee was also good, I love the little guy

I recently dug this guy out. Cannot believe the lights and sounds still work. It’s been in storage since 2011, so the batteries have held up. I bought him in a toy store when I was stationed in Germany in the mid 2000s.

I just ordered a Ultimate Bee myself. Missing missile unfortunately, but I won it for dirt cheap. The shipping wasn't unfortunately.

Cant wait to finally try this big boy out!

Thats good. I think i only transformed mine once into vehicle mode. Pretty good size actually for the vehicle mode. Otherwise, he has been in robot mode. He is cool, given all the sounds and movement he has. Hopefully you can find the missile, he does automatically shoot it, when your going through the sounds.

That's a big boy right there! And one of the few movie Bees I do not have. I've wanted to get one, but not pressing, I'll get there when I get there.

Batteries were impressive in some of the OG movie toys. My Nightwatch Optimus Prime had batteries that worked up until 2 years ago, and I used the lights and sound ALOT on him

The only big Movie Bee I'll be missing is the DOTM leader.

I'll keep an eye out for a good listing.

It doesn't count if you sold your spare years ago though.

Oh well, gotta monitor eBay.


.....

Found one in Ireland for 67$CAN shipped. Used, of course, but complete and unbroken. A few dollars cheaper than the original full price with taxes in store. Not too shabby.
