Transformers Robot in Disguise Bumblebee Happy Meal Toy 2017












I'm trying to add some short posts during mid week for time to time, focusing on less expensive or simpler toys like this Bumblebee from 'Robot in Disguise', Mac Donald's Happy Meal 2017 series released with Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Strongarm and Drift. Bumblebee took on a leadership role, leading autobots on earth, in the absence of Optimus Prime. I won't expect high quality from Happy Meal Toy but rest assured its a child safe and friendly toy.

Non-transformable like the other releases in this series, the paint works appeared to be inferior compare to Optimus Prime. The paint works were uneven with some parts stained black and other parts that were supposedly black, unpainted.  The Autobots logo on the chest seems misaligned too.

An optional part to the toy is the yellow translucent bee wings with honeycomb pattern. Bumblebee's head can be pulled back to stimulate flight pose and kids can roll Bumblebee back and forth with the assistance of the wheel at the upper torso. When placed side Optimus Prime, Bumblebee seems shorter but more stouter.

We can't expect much for Transformers toys from McD HM right? I think the best McD HM toys would be those from other sides like Hello Kitty, Nintendo Mario Bros. gang and maybe Despicable Me. Then again, I knew there are people out there who really put serious effort in collecting lots of toys from McD HM.

Despicable Me! & Hello Kitty Plush Happy Meal Toys garner a lot of support locally. I was once at the Mac Donald outlet at Science Center where they displayed those past HMT even back in the 80s. Brought out a lot of memories especially those Singapore style ones!

Based on the size, Bumblebee looks bigger and stronger than Prime...

Bumblebee is more stocky though and Bee takes the limelight in recent Robot in Disguise.
