Supercool Ultimate Bumblebee Transformers Toy

Updated on June 23, 2011

In summer 2007, many of us were introduced to a super cool robot named Bumblebee. He's from the movie, Transformers, and one of the Autobots, the good guys. Bumblebee and the other Transformers came to us from the planet Cybertron where they've been battling the Decepticons, the evil Transformers.

Here on Earth, in order to remain anonymous and to avoid scaring humans, the Transformers had to assume the guise of something machinery such as common cars, trucks, and airplanes. As their popular 80s tagline said, "Transformers, robots in disguise."

For Bumblebee, way back in the 80s cartoon, he was running around as a Volkswagen Beetle. He was a bug. In the movies, Transformers and the sequel Revenge of the Fallen, he had a slight change. He ran around as a 1977 Camaro at first, fit as a teen's first car, and then upgraded to a 2010 model after Megan Fox's character called him a "piece of crap Camaro." According to Wikipedia, Michael Bay insisted on the change because there was too much of a Herbie the love bug vibe and wanted something different.

I recall a little bit about Bumblebee from the 80's cartoon and much like the movie, he's teamed up with a human kid in many of his ventures. Bumblebee's small size for a robot allowed him to sneak around all kinds of places with the human kid.

In the movies, he's paired up again with a teenage boy, Sam Witwicky.  He was assigned to guard Sam from the Decepticons.  Apparently, Sam held the key to the location of the All Spark, an energy source that both Autobots and Decepticons were seeking.

Bumblebee had a lot of screen time in the movies.  He was practically in all the scenes with Sam.  And he had his own showdown with the Decepticon Barricade in a Mustang vs Camaro duel, just like during the days of pony cars.
