In short: Fail. Falls way short of the existing deluxe 'bee mold. In depth: I can't review this toy without asking "What needed improvement in the '07 toy design?". The biggest problems the '07 'Bee had were the roof kibble on the arms and an inability to swivel the legs at all. Cannon Blast 'Bee straight-up reuses the old legs (unprecedented in the history of Transformer toys unless I'm missing something obscure). So his toes still point straight forward at all times. As for the arm kibble- Yeah. They fixed that. Then they went and froze his wrists in the "curling" position. Normally you can at least pull off a nice "I'll get you next time!" pose with "curling wrist" figures. But 'Bee doesn't have a fist to shake. His hands are molded open. When you combine open hands with curling wrists you are limited to two main poses: *Ready pardner? Draw! and *Would you like a stick of gum? So despite fixing the kibble, the arms come out worse than before. The giant elephant hanging out in this review is the 'bot chest that can no longer deform. It bugs me worse than I thought it would and almost makes the toy look like a FAB. Finally, the choice of windows is inexplicable. They went out of their way to design this 'Bee with seats and a dashboard. The resulting new transformation sacrifices any waist movement. That's an acceptable trade-off for a nice car interior, but then they went and put metal flakes in the window plastic! Metal flakes! In otherwise transparent plastic! Molded right in there! The result is that you can see through the windows if light is shining from the back, but when light shines from the front the windows almost resemble blue metal foil. So there is no possible way to actually see the inside of the car without putting a tiny LED in the drivers seat and keeping it turned on. It's a good toy outside of the context of the '07 Bee. The thing is, this toy does not exist outside of that context. An '07 remold is on the shelves right now, so even people who missed the first toy can get the remold and pass up Cannon Blast.
