As with Vertebreak that we looked at last time, Night Shadow Bumblebee is a direct repaint of the first version that came out in the Beast Hunters line. I have to say, again, the repaint is really well done. I think the gold and black play so well together. The blue/silver color works well too. Bee definitely looks like he is going to do some night hunting for Predacons.
You can’t load a vehicle up with much more weaponry than Bee is carrying. That is a whole mess of stuff on there.
In all, a good figure for the collectors of all things Bumblebee. He has a great different look, but he is still Bee. You will probably be able to skip him if you already have the yellow version. This is a direct repaint. I am happy to say that my Bee has a little better transformation around the head. My previous Bee’s head would not fold back to lay on his shoulders, and he had a bit of a floating head thing going on. I think the one of the gears was one tooth off, and did not let the head fold all the way back. This one worked much better.
I am starting to run out of Transformers here. Hopefully we will get the next wave of the new Generations figures soon. Come on Hasbro!!
