Allegiance: Autobot Categories: Deluxe Store Exclusive Year: 2011
Cybertron is a floating hunk of screap, centuries of war have devastated the world and sent millions of Autobot and Decepticon soldiers to the junkyard. The evil Megatron and his Decepticons use the shell of a planet to plot their assaults against the Autobots. Their latest weapon? Dark Energon! Megatron surges with its unbridled, vicious power, ready to conquer the universe. But Optimus Prime and his Autobots will not go down without a fight - they're fueled by the same righteous and pure Energon that powered the Golden Age of Cybertron!
Remarks: Hey, look! Another Bumblebee. A repaint of Generations War for Cybertron Bumblebee, to be exact. Which I've already reviewed. The differences? A different paint job that replaces the original figure's red highlights with bright blue ones and most of Bumblebee's black parts with light grey. And... yeah, that's pretty much it. Well, not quite, he's got some painted-on scratches / skid marks, making it look like he was in an accident or something. Oh, and the vehicle mode doesn't click together as well as that of the first figure, but I'm not sure whether that's just mine or a general problem. Anyway, Bumblebee figures need to be repainted, that's been an iron-clad rule since the first Movie line. The only reasons, for me, why one might consider getting this one are a) because you missed out on the first one or b) you really want the Megatron he's packaged with. To me it was reason b) and so it should not come as a big surprise that I've since sold this fellow here. Bottom line: nothing more and nothing less than a repaint of a good figure. But he does come with a really cool Megatron and a pretty good Optimus Prime.
