To accompany yesterday's clip of the Transformers Cyber Commander Optimus Prime figure, we also have a video review by Bot Toys, with unboxing, of its wave-mate Bumblebee. As a reminder, these are the larger figures in the line, and come with very few articulation points and transformation steps, but have a certain appealing aesthetic to some collectors. Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

These may not be great, but they aren't bad. At least the design isn't sacrificed for a gimmick that nobody (and I know a few younger kids who like TFs) wants. If these figures were being produces on a legends scale, I'd pick them up. I mean, to be honest, if the review says its worth it, I might order Megatron.

They do look pretty good, and they're fun little things. i like quick-transformations as a desk toy when I'm bored, so these guys could be nice desktop figures for non-kids and fun toys for kids :BOT:

Not only have the figures sold out from BBTS, they've also pulled the category listing. It's like they were never there.

I have all 7 of these in-hand now. If there's anything anyone wants to see, post it and I'll see what I can get together over the weekend. In the meantime, enjoy this group shot:

How many points of articulation do each of them have? And what are their said points of articulation?

Can you do some comparison shots with a few other Megatrons to get a sense of scale and fit? WFC Deluxe / United Voyager / Generations Leader?

I would like something similar with Starscream.

Smaller Bee is way better looking than the big one. Mainly because of the chests. Normal Bee have a very detailed front of a car as a chest that make him look cool. Big bee have the windshield as a chest, which make him look weird and way too blue.

Let's hope that when RID die down, Hasbro will bring that line for the rest of the world to fill the "simple TF" lines on the shelves.

Looks like I've got work to do! Might just do a video, may be easier. Been looking to break in a new camera anyway.

There's no need to do a video, pictures will be just fine

With just barely a few dozens of views for each videos, Chuck is no competition for anyone... Kinda unfair to say, but at least, Chuck is reviewing things that the big titant reviewers (such a Optiboptimus, Paugh, or Emgo) will not bother with. Sure, unpopular things like Movie 1 step figures or Hello Kitty TFs don't bring the masses, but at least, the video is being done. And It's nice to see some underdogs in motion.

I just picked a random review (1 step Galvatron) and it had 1,796 views. Its a bit more than a few dozen.



An this power battler optimus has as much as any video by the "titans" you mentioned

While I can appreciate that view, I'd much rather they work on actually getting CW stuff into stores first.

It's normal for the odd stuff that we cant find anywhaere. That's his strenght. However, for the things that the big Ones have reviewed, most people don't bother.





If he's the first on the block to review something, he may get a few thousands thanks to a Seibertron feature. But no more once the Big Titant Reviewers get on the game. It's hard to compete with their hundreds of thousands of subscribers.

That why, Chuck, I encourage you to keep reviewing the most bizzare and out of the left feild TF ever and/or, the ones that many reviewers will not bother with. Like the giant-ass 60$ 1 step RID Bumblebee. Power Battler AOE Optimus have proven it.
