Preview - Hasbro's Transformers: Bumblebee Toys are about to Roll Out!

Written by

We're just a few months out from the Christmas release of Paramount Pictures' new Bumbleebee film, and now Hasbro is gearing up to start rolling out the companion toys. A sizable assortment of Transformers just went up for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth and among the new items are the following from the new Bumblebee line.  While the traditional transforming action figures are the core of the collection, Hasbro continues to emphasize role play, large-scale feature figures and their Vision AR line that first surfaced as an Iron Man helmet during the product launch for Avengers: Infinity War. Check out the new toys below, and note the character names alongside their pre-production code names (used to prevent potential spoilers during the pre-announcement stages). See a full gallery of photos on The Rock Father™ Facebook Page, and get all of the details below...

Imagine collaborating with the bodacious Bumblebee to mix some sick beats with the Transformers: Bumblebee -- DJ Bumblebee figure inspired by the iconic character from the big screen. Using Sing-Back Tech, this figure records kids' voices, and then plays back the soundbite in sync with 1 of 3 awesome music. Kids control the mix -- move the figure's right arm to switch songs and left arm to control the tempo. Figure comes pre-loaded with music clips Walk This Way, originally by Aerosmith, Bust A Move, originally by Young MC, and the Robots in Disguise theme song. The DJ Bumblebee figure also dances to the beat during playback. Product does not convert, but can still mix it up. Ages 6 and up. Figure does not transform.
