Originally Intended to be a Toys 'R' Us Exclusive, Transformers Studio Series Deluxe Bumblebee and Charlie Arrives...

Written by

A whole bunch of new toys from Hasbro's Transformers: Bumblebee were revealed today, and many went up for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth. One of the hottest items in the bunch is Transformers Studio Series Deluxe Bumblebee and Charlie which was originally intended to be a Toys "R" Us Exclusive, prior to the retailer's sudden collapse. This new figure set is available for pre-order right now, but if you're at all wary of potential "spoilers," beware that the product description and photos might reveal a few surprises when it comes to 'Bee's alt modes...
