Bumblebee

119 Have it 13 Want it
Curator's Notes:

The best known of the original Series 1 mini-car characters, Bumblebee has been reinvented over and over again in the Transformers mythology. A specialist in espionage, this figure was available with three variations: yellow (with rub sign), yellow (with autobit sticker), and red (with autobot sticker). To complicate things for collectors there is also a very rare blue version and an entirely different Transformer that sometimes came packed in Bumblebee packaging (in red and yellow variations!). Typically priced a bit higher than the other mini-cars due to demand.

Bumblebee is a stumpy little VW bug with a simple transformation. He's a little better than the standard mini bots, and the rubber tires help give him a bit more playability.

One of my favorite G1 toys when I was a kid... Easy transformation, fun to play with, has resisted almost 27 years of either shelf dust and storage in humidity.

mini cars good fun and cheap easy to get simple but fun transformation left over diaclone stock explains why color variants were out there. Too bad bumble bee got screwed when they made him the throttle bot gold bug..

This is the rare red Bumblebee. This version was released in Argentina by antex. Called "Robocar" He is given the name "Volks." The quality of these toys from Argentina is not as high as those from the US but still good. Stickers tend to fall off easily and the card is a bit more flimsy than those from the US so handle with care.

Hmm, let's see here - iconic toy that evolved into a global celebrity; classic Takara stock; it came in both yellow AND red. Really, other thank Optimus Prime, Bumblebee is likely the most universally recognized Transformers character, and with good reason. Whether you like his various iterations or not, this guy is impossible to dismiss, and with good reason.

Spikes best friend Bumblebee. Simple transformation. With many variations available. Only dislike is that the head flops if played with excessively.
