Animated Transformers: Bumblebee
Well you can add one more Transformer to the list of transforming toys that I have own / owned. I broke down and picked up a Bumble bee from the new Animated Series line. Not that I'm a fan of Bumble bee, but I really dig his new character design for the show, plus I thought Hasbro did a bang up job making the toy look like it. Also when he transforms he's pretty articulated and can pose in several different ways.
Before this you might remember the only other "new" transformer I have is the Star Wars Transformers crossover figure of Boba Fett. That one reminds me of the old school Transformers, pretty stiff when transformed. I think the new stuff is far better and more accurate than the one I had when I was younger. I do miss my original Wheeljack though, maybe I can find one somewhere, or maybe he'll make it into the new cartoon.
I will say I pretty much dig all the Animated stuff because of the over stylized caricatures, but I will limit future purchases and add maybe one or two more. Bulkhead I have my eye on you, buddy!
Father's Day yielded another Transformer from the Animated Series, the afore mentioned Bulkhead was received and photos will be arriving soon!
