    Over the years, many LEGO TF builders attempted to make Bumblebee in his various , more popular earthen incarnations as shown in cartoons and movies.

    It's time to give his Cybertronian mode some love.

    His cybertronian mode was shown at the very beginning of the G1 cartoon and aside from screencaps above, I couldn't find better visuals of him to refer to. I guess it's good in a way since I can apply my creative license when it comes to building him.

    Below is an additional salvage/recovery mode I cranked out by implementing a pair of grapple arms that are tucked in underneath his vehicle mode.

    The robot mode is pretty articulated. Compared to other full-grown adult autobots , I deliberately build Bee's legs shorter by 2 studs. This way, his body proportions is equivalent to a young/teenage bot.
