so someone at Hasbro actually had a RADICAL idea to actually make proper toys for the current cartoon show. What a wild concept! The first wave of proper Deluxe figures based on Transformers: Cyberverse is making its way to store shelves (mostly digital but some brick-and-mortar) and the packaging features a slight rebrand; the line is now referred to as "Bumblebee: Cyberverse Adventures." With that in mind, let's take a look at the new toy for Transformers' now-eternal flagship character! in Vehicle Mode Bumblebee is a flashy sports car. Definitely seems like some Camero-esque shaping here but sidestepping any possible licensing issues. One thing you'll notice right away is that the plastic quality is pretty different from Siege or Studio Series. Not necessarily "inferior" because nothing feels like it's about to break or anything like that but it is a noticable change. On the flipside Deluxe Bee certainly feels sturdier than the couple Cyberverse Warriors I've handled. Transformation is fairly complex for a Deluxe; some fake car kibble swing-arounds that i liked. Bumblebee in Robot Mode is everyones' favorite yellow mute. This is a very solid configuration and has tons of articulation- ankle tilts, wrists, waist, neck- all the major points are covered. His shoulder kibble can sometimes block upper arm range but if you adjust the door-wings on his back things move a lot better. Deluxe Bee comes with two weapons: a blaster and an arm-mounted "stinger" weapon with bonus laser effect detail. The only downside with these two is that they have no storage options for Vehicle Mode (really, the whole first wave seems to have that problem). And the central gimmick of this wave: Bumblebee comes with a piece of the ancient brewmaster MacAdam: which does not do a damn thing until/unless you collect the remaining seven parts. For now its' just... there. Cyberverse Deluxe Bumblebee is the figure I've wanted most since this new style of figure was announced. And I'd say he was worth the wait, I really like this guy- a good blend of old & new visuals with some great play value. Absolutely recommended!
