#76: Transformers Hunt For the Decepticons - Battle Blade Bumblebee

The next part of my Transformers order is Battle Blade Bumblebee. It was also on sale, for $6.99, so it was a pretty good deal. Bot mode looks pretty accurate to the onscreen version, as far as I can remember off the top of my head. Better than yesterday's Optimus, for sure. His battle mask can flip down, although it's really tight so I haven't moved it yet. The right arm gets a cannon, and the left arm gets an axe that folds into the arm and can be released with the push of a button.

Getting Bumblebee into car mode is kind of a hassle in parts. Getting the roof/hood piece in place and getting all the side pieces to hold together is difficult to get right. Not all the pieces want to work together, and sometimes they want to occupy space where another piece already is. The packaging lists the difficulty as 4 (out of 5), and it certainly is a fiddly conversion. I could see a kid breaking this one while trying to get it into car mode.
