So, the yellow one. Or as he's known to his friends, SS57 Offroad Bumblebee. Mine arrived today along with Shatter (more on her in her review thread). First impressions are that this is the bug-eyed kid appeal scourge we should have gotten in the first place! Bee comes with the obligatory usual Studio Series "display base"; this time showing some Sector 7 goons standing around between takes and an ominous aircraft buzzing about in the sky (presumably John Cena is in there somewhere, you just can't see him). Now, figure time! Let's start with alt mode for a change.....it's not a VW! [Insert surprised Pikachu meme here]. Instead, Bee is sporting his Jeep mode from the early portion of the movie (no, the mode after the Cybertronian car, but before the Beetle). He's done in a slightly saturated yellow that matches very closely with SS18's primary colour. Interestingly, the plastic on SS57 has more of a matt texture than the regular glossy plastic we often see, giving the figure a rustically realistic finish. It all looks very nice, aside from the fugly wheels (c'mon HasTak, throw more budget at your cash cow!), and the robot arms peeking out from below. Other than those little niggles, this is a pretty fantastic alt mode, with actual seats, sculpted interior and steering wheel. The side panels on mine are a pain to plug into place, but with the cannon attached to the underside (that's right, hidden weapon storage), it pegs together in the end. I won't spoil the transformation, except for saying it's unique and fun as hell until you get to those side panels....though your milage may vary there. Once we get to robot mode, oh boy, does the little yellow plague (no self-isolation required with this one) come into his own! Standing at the same height as SS18, SS57's proportions are leaps and bounds better for a start, and the kibble compacts down beautifully into a very satisfying child-friendly murder bot. LOOK AT THAT SEXY AS-......uhhhh, compact rear. We don't objectify bees, or robots, or cars here. Articulation is pretty stellar, with all the usual joints, plus useful forward & back action on those chunky stompers of his. The head is the only odd part worth mentioning really, as it is on a side to side swivel only due to transformation, but you can make him look up using this joint. But don't do that. You will have nightmares. Fun fact: Bee can also use SS18's arm blade to shank his foes to death. Kids these days, ay. Overall, if you're a fan of the movies, get this figure. If you're a fan of Bumblebee, get this figure. If you're a fan of fun and unique Transformers, get this damn figure in your face. SS57 may be one of the highlights of Studio Series to date. Don't miss out on him!
