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…
This Studio Series Deluxe Class exclusive features premium figures, each with movie-inspired scale, detail, and backdrop. Figures stand at a scale relative to their character’s height in the movie and feature vivid, movie-inspired deco. Each package comes with a movie scene backdrop that can be removed to display the figure on shelf. Fans can use the backdrop and pose their figures in the scene with their own style.
This Transformers: Bumblebee Studio Series 15 Deluxe Class Bumblebee and Charlie figures brings the movie action from the Highway Freedom scene to new dimensions. The figure converts from robot to 77 Camaro mode in 23 steps. Turn the classic Bumblebee car into a racecar with 8 included accessories for customization. Remove the backdrop included in the pack to showcase the Bumblebee and Charlie figures in the Highway Freedom scene. Bumblebee robot stands about 4 1/2-inches tall.
If you want one, order it now. These are expected to arrive in October.
