Transformers have been around since I was a kid. I loved them then and I can honestly say that I still love them now !!!
When the first Transformers Movie was released a couple of years ago a whole new generation of kids suddenly became interested in the "robots in disguise" from the planet Cybertron.
This summer the hype surrounding Transformers continues and the new sequel "Revenge Of The Fallen" has flooded the toy stores with a range of Autobot and Decepticon related merchandise.
In my opinion, one of the best ranges of Transformers toys on the market at the moment is the Transformers Animated Series ... a range that I often feel gets overlooked due to the sheer amount of movie tie in toys and merchandise that seem to be flooding the shelves.
Transformers Animated toys are excellent. To begin with they have a unique look (which appeals to both younger fans and adult collectors). Younger fans of the Transformers Animated cartoon will easily recognise their favourite heroes and villains whilst adult collectors seem to enjoy the unique way in which the animated series has captured the personalities and characteristics of some of their favourite robots !!!
In addition to this as toys they are both strong and durable and they "transform" easily and effectively.
The Transformers Animated Deluxe Bumblebee is one of my personal favourites. I mean who couldn't like Bumblebee ??? This great little Autobot is a hero ... and nothing scares him. He may be young and reckless but he is also brave and loyal ... he looks pretty cool too !!!
Bumblebee transforms very quickly from Autobot Warrior mode to Sports Car vehicle mode. As an Autobot Warrior his stinger missiles are ready for battle against Megatron and the Decepticons ... but in Sports Car vehicle mode they become snap on rocket thrusters to add extra speed so Bumblebee can race into battle (or escape from enemies).
Bumblebee certainly has a lot of character ... and this speedy looking vehicle transforms into an energetic and eyecatching looking robot.
Transformers Animated Deluxe Bumblebee retails for around £12 gbp but can be found a lot cheaper if you have a good look round ... but even at £12 this fantastic toy is well worth the money !!!

The youngest robot on the crew, Bumblebee is what some - especially Autobot Ratchet - would call over-eager. It's not his fault he prefers action over talk. Talk is just, you know, boring! Especially when you could be racing at top speed into a fight, or boosting into the air to launch a few well-placed energy stingers at an enemy. Nothing scares Bumblebee, not even Megatron. Check out this awesome Autobot warrior in sports car mode or robot mode! Either way, this Bumblebee figure means business. Flip-out stingers help this hefty hero deliver a sharp blow to the enemy while snap-on rocket thrusters give the striped sportster a boost in vehicle mode!
