Tribute to BumbleBee From Zero to Hero..
I must admit, I am not much of a bumblebee fan, never really like him.. find him a sidekick, a little cute perhaps to catch some of the female fans. If you ask any girl or my era if they know Transformers. they would say.. yeah , I rem the yellow car.. Was it Bumblebee?

And he was back with a vengence last year. Still cute but better, in Suzuki Swift. Its a pity he never made it to the Binatech lines. Curse you Volkswagen, Bad decision for not allowing

Takara work on him. (I still have a model kit on VW beatle in my store. Just can't find the time to work on him.

Let me tell you, just lost 2 buyers (My bro and I) under normal circumstances I would never buy a beatle. Being bumble bee could be the only exception and that alone could be convincing.
Too bad.

But my bro has always been a fan, And so for his sake, and of cos being a Transformers fan, I try to get one of each incarnation when ever possible. (And he is still sore that we dont have pretender bumble bee. Gold Bug and action master Bumblebee although... I would rather not have the last unless it was dirt cheap or someone has to kill me unless I buy him. But the fate on bumblebee has changed from a Cute harmless character to a Must buy for everyone in town who has just stepped out of a Transformers movie.
Girls, boys kids alike.. I want Bumblebee. I had such a tough time hunting him down.

In the movie, You can wittness how Bumblebee transit from being a piece of crap to a sleek mean.. Camero. And the toys did just that. In the Toy the 1974 muscle car was looks really good

And thanks to Takara he was given clear window. (Hasbro the American capitalist mindset and cost saving measures decided that we dont deserve that) Depicted below is Hasbro's version. I bought it.. an regret it. If I were you i will hunt for a Takara's 1974 version.

But you just can't say the same in the robot mode. The 08 camero was movie accurate and could achive most of the dynamic pose in the Promotional posters.. while the 74 camero transform into a stick robot.. Yucks..

How check out the Cool 08 Camero. Bumble bee. Go get it. if you havent.
