While there's a chunk to the figure, the thin plastic makes me feel concerned over time that the toy won't be able to hold up to normal play. Transformation is surprisingly involved but again the thin plastic brings me concern. Overall, I think there are better options to get your Bumblebee fix in this line.

Bumblebee uses the newer side rotation transformation which was first seen on TLK One-Step Drift I believe. While a fun transformation it does result in the car kibble almost forming a cape of sorts around the figure. This can be an easy pass as there's plenty of other options for Bumblebee in the line.
chuckdawg1999 wrote:Nitro Class Dropkick is one of the best figures I've handled thus far in 2019. It's chunky and all the parts come together solidly in both modes making for a pleasurable transformation back and forth. I can't recommend this figure enough, but I also know many of you will pass on it just because it's been labeled a simplified figure.
chuckdawg1999 wrote:With Ultra Class Optimus Prime there is now at least one Prime for every price point in the Cyberverse line, with more to come. It's not the best figure but it's not bad either, it's just there. My one major complaint is that the legs activate the action feature, which results in a very long cab if the shield isn't deployed. I can't give a solid yay or nay on this figure so the decision on purchasing is up to you.
