    You're right, it is the VW engine, albeit a mirrored image of one. You can even spot the distributor and alternator pulley.

    I feel like with all things but price there's ebb and flow, prime had some pretty nice figures but RID started off a little meh in terms of quality then it ticked up significantly in the middle and then back down at the end(almost all gimmick figures). My personal opinion on prime wars toys is that the combiners and headmasters that are supposed to be are pretty great but for the most part the the ones that got ham fisted into a gimmick arent(exception being cyclonus, blurr, kup ,the dinobots and the potp leader figures). The legends class guys are all pretty great IMO. The movie toys have always been hit and miss to me from film to film but SS is fixing that... And my point of reference is always G1 toys because of the rain check debacle of the early 80s. I got a goddamn broken in package prowl from kiddie city for Christmas cause all toysrus had were rainchecks that weren't gonna be fulfilled till god knew when. Since then I've always thought "well at least it isn't that broken prowl".

    This looks way better than what a gimmick toy has any right to be. Props to that designer!

    Ok, we're getting there, we're getting there. Now do a robot mode that looks like the original Bumblebee.

    Yeah, I worked a 100 hours a week and the Bucs sucked and had another lousy year.

    Nevermind, that's this year.

    Oh yea, BB infestation.

    Well, a VW should be a bit different that another Camaro.

    OK WHERE IS THE REAL HASBRO !!

    And what have you done with them ?

    I'm calling the FBI - this can't be real as it looks "Surprisingly Decent".

    Must be something fishy going on involving shapeshifters.

    Not sure if it's the simplification of the movie designs or what, but this looks way too good for a gimmicky toy.

    lol when do the Bucs not? And true, I can definitely see the VW selling a bit more than the camaro did. But with Hasbro's weird distribution this year, I wouldn't be surprised if even we're presented with walls of yellow.

    Not into the movie toys, though this one certainly skews closer to my liking.

    All that having been said this not bad for a toy dominated by a sound box gimmick.

    This toy looks like a turd. Vehicle mode looks very, very good. Boy, that oddly proportioned bot mode is sad compared to the cuddly looking Bee from the trailers.
