5.0 out of 5 stars An underrated Bumblebee Leader class figure....
For a leader class figure, this Bumblebee is as good as it gets with his appearance seen in Dark Of The Moon. I don't get why this figure is getting mixed reviews from fans. I think its a good figure, yes it can't compare with the Battle Ops Bumblebee, but its a good figure in its own right. Transformation is fairly simple. Robot mode is very nicely done.

1.0 out of 5 stars DOTM Leader Class Bumblebee
Appearances can be deceiving. I bought this because it looked really awesome. but upon opening up and beginning to transform it, I came across difficulty with certain parts. The legs don't want to bend where they are supposed to and there is a small separation near the joints in the leg that will break if you force the leg to bend too hard. But then again, it won't bend...

This review is from: Transformers Dark Of The Moon Mechtech Bumblebee (Toy)
For a leader class figure, this Bumblebee is as good as it gets with his appearance seen in Dark Of The Moon. I don't get why this figure is getting mixed reviews from fans. I think its a good figure, yes it can't compare with the Battle Ops Bumblebee, but its a good figure in its own right. Transformation is fairly simple. Robot mode is very nicely done. The alternate Camaro SS car mode looks very detailed, from the black rims to the black spoiler, just as how the car appeared in the movie. Car mode looks close to a 1/24 scale car model. A nice touch is the stealth force mode you can do in vehicle mode with the huge weapon it came with. All in all, this leader class Bumblebee from Dark Of The Moon is recommended for Transformers and Bumblebee fans! Check out my photos of this leader class Bumblebee I've added here at Amazon...

But then again, it won't bend unless you force it that hard. =.= Sliding the torso for transformation is a real pain, it's definitely hard to do. The cover of the right arm extends into a blade (I think that's what that is) but it doesn't click back into place and often falls limply with nowhere to go. It's a waste of money. :L Needless to say, it will remain in car form on my shelf for eternity. If I transform it one more time and try to get it to the correct posture (the legs) it will break. The plastic is easily stressed and becomes brittle.

This review is from: Transformers Dark Of The Moon Mechtech Bumblebee (Toy)
Dark of the Moon Mech Tech leader Bumblebee is a sweet addition for any transformer fans collection.This bad boy has more firepower than any enemy could handle.Bumblebee's Mech Tech weapon system is one big piece containing two six shot cannon guns on each side with a pulse blaster in the middle with target sighting.The weapon system does light up while making blaster and missle sounds.Bumblebee also has automatic conversion sounds as well.The weapon system fits on the back end of the camaro mode while being on his back in robot mode.The only drawback to having the weapon system on Bumblebee in robot mode is that it makes him back heavy,so you might have to lean him against something solid.The detail on the figure is excellent with the addition of a spoiler in vehicle mode.The transformation level is intermediate meaning if you have plenty of experience with transformers there is mid-level difficulty.If you are a parent buying for a child of 5-6 or younger you might have to help some in the process.Honestly Bumblebee looks more difficult than he is to transform.Their are a few tricky parts that will become easier with time.In the beginning on the back behind Bumblebee's head you have to slide the part up which if you go ahead and position the roof part up first it is easier to do.It is three steps to fold up his feet to end up forming the back end of the camaro so make sure that the smaller size grey prong is folded underneath the foot.The other part is folding the arms just right to fit inside the car,just remember that the upper panels on his arms should be facing out,so the torso plate can snap into place underneath.The durability is outstanding to where Bumblebee is very solid for acting out battle scenes in either mode.I would like to have seen Bumblebee with realistic rubber tires,and the cannon/arm combo like on the Battle Ops Bumblebee but this is still an excellent figure overall.The poseability is very good ,but works better for robot mode without the Mech Tech system.There also is a third transformation only shown on the instructions where the arms flip out along the side to give Bumblebee a little more firepower in vehicle mode.The only other thing is between the torso plate underneath and the prongs folded up at the back end creates a little clutter on the underside in camaro mode.This Bumblebee isn't perfect,but is still an excellent figure overall.Bottom line Bumblebee is a high quality,well-made,10 out of 10 figure all fans should enjoy.I highly recommend Dark of the Moon Leader Bumblebee to all transformer fans and collectors alike.Transformers Rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would not recommend this toy to any one at all.

I returned the item and reordered 2 days after Christmas the Wheel broke on on this one

I didn't return this one just decided to keep it. it's been falling to pieces ever since Christmas.

This review is from: Transformers Dark Of The Moon Mechtech Bumblebee (Toy)
So the gift is for my 5 year old son. The catcher, the grown ups have to transform the car to a robot and back again. Oh and did I mention, this process can take up to 2 hours? Son rarely plays with it, buuuuut daddy is quick to volunteer to do all the transforming. LOL WIN WIN I guess

this toy is great. the weapons pack makes it a little back heavy, but if you fiddle with it for a while it stands perfectly. when i bought it i was worried when i heard about the review were the toys leg snapped off. that person must have used a lot of force. the transformation is pretty easy. overall this bumblebee toy in my opinion is the best bumblebee. p.s. it also scales perfectly with the rotf leader prime and the dotm leader ironhide

5.0 out of 5 stars Review from a Nine-Year Old, September 30, 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Transformers Dark Of The Moon Mechtech Bumblebee (Toy)
Bumblebee is a very fun toy. At first, I couldn't get the back section and the the little pieces on the upper legs to line up. Then I realized that the nubs on his feet were supposed to go back, not forwards. That's why the educational value is a five star. The MechTech (mechanism technology) is massive. It also has five MechTech ports. Overall this is my masterpiece figure and way better than the deluxe Bumblebee that is only goes up to this Bumblebee's waist. I love this figure very much. I can't recommend him enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mental cruelty, June 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Transformers Dark Of The Moon Mechtech Bumblebee (Toy)
Yes, it must qualify as cruelty selling this "toy" for childrem "5YO and up". It is virtually impossible to trasnform... and that's what transformers do, isn't it? This is not a transformer, but a very very diffucult puzzle, even for adults.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrived broken and damage beyond repair....not able to transform in any way, October 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Transformers Dark Of The Moon Mechtech Bumblebee (Toy)
Sad that this birthday present, upon being opened and in view of large family and friends, was found to be broken and not possible to be played with at all. When we replace it, it won't be from this same company.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrendous!, December 25, 2011
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Transformers Dark Of The Moon Mechtech Bumblebee (Toy)
Received this as a gift for my son this Christmas and now, two hours later, I still cannot convert it into the car. It is an absolute nightmare. There are two idiotic pieces of plastic on the legs that do not fold up and obviously somehow fit in a particular way when it is in car form, but the instructions do not indicate how. I have downloaded the instructions and blown them up to 400% resolution and I still cannot figure out how to fold this thing up. The instructions are 22 panels long and that does not consider that many panels have subpanels. If there is an 8 year old who has figured this out, feel free to email me at sc13083@yahoo.com and I will retract my rating. But until then, avoid this toy at all costs, it is a nightmare.
