    No, he got it in one of the Bay movies. At best it's because he's techically linked to that series. At worst it's becoming equipment fans apply to any Bumblebee. Like hammers for Magnus.

    He had one in The Last Knight, and people think he looks cool with a hammer, so a lot of 3P companies have been giving their bees hammers. It's better than some of the made-up accessories that Toyworld has done at least.

    If you think about it, even Optimus's now-famous axe followed the same principle. It was in one single episode of the G1 cartoon and then wasn't seen again until 2003, and was solely brought back because it was cool that one time. Now if a Prime doesn't have an axe you can hear 3D printers the world over whir to life within seconds.

    Btw, this wasn't the hammer used in TLK, it is based on an unused hammer concept art designed for the Bumblebee movie. So at least this makes more sense than Toyworld's unneccessary weapons for Freedom Leader.

    I can't believe Volkswagen is letting their logo be put directly on weapons, now, haha.

    Never made it to film, so they most likely weren’t asked.

    Totally! There's so much stuff in G1 that people revere and then when something similar happens in the movies they're like "WTF is this shit? Boooooo!"
    I have seen that before but I had no idea it was actually an official piece of concept art! That's cool. I use the one I have with SS Jeep Bee and it looks pretty cool. Dunno if it'd fit his cuter VW mode though.

    I mean...I guess? Like I could understand if it was Hasbro including them, but this just seems like a bunch of third parties arbitrarily deciding that all bumblebees should have a hammer now. I mean nothing wrong with it I guess, mor options are never a bad thing. It DOES help in this case that it was originally planned but axed.

    I'm confused, that 3D render isn't the TransCraft Bumblebee. Other than the gun and battle mask they haven't shown any other accessories have they?

    Yea somehow this thread started talking bout the unknown 3rd party bumblebee.
    As for transcraft's bee, other than the gun and battle mask, he also comes with his blade.

    It's been suspected to the point of assumed. Nice to have confirmation.

    Didn't TransCraft once respond to someone (I'm guessing on weibo) saying they weren't Unique Toys? Looks like their disguise has been unravelled :p
