View Full Version : Is THAT how Bumblebee transforms?

I got this ad for Aldi stores from my mother-in-law. Check out the mistransformed(?) Bumblebee. Not sure if that's funny or sad that someone actually took and used that picture.

It's Funny. And Sad. It's Fad. Or Sunny. Take your pick.

The transformation rivals the McDonalds Megatron... Oh well, I'm just glad I can finally get Universe Legends.

No, uh, that's right. That's the non-transforming "Power Bot" figure, which can roll around on its wheels just as Bumblebee did in "Total Meltdown".

Clover reference? Awesome...

Yeah, it's a reference to Total meltdown, specifically where bumblebee nearly gets hit by an (probably rigged) elevator, and has to use his wheels to get up the chute. "Going Up!" -Bumblebee.

So, yeah, that's actually right.

Note the burnt-through rope.

It worked for the Sparkabots (http://tfu.info/subgroup/firespark.htm).

worked this in a very loose sense I assume.

Anyway, kudos to the cynical executive who came up with the company slogan.

Check (http://tfu.info/1988/Autobot/Fizzle/fizzle.htm) it (http://tfu.info/1988/Autobot/Guzzle/guzzle.htm) out (http://tfu.info/1988/Autobot/Sizzle/sizzle.htm). :)

I guess it's slightly more complicated because you have to pull the legs down, and on one of them you have to flip the car front over its head, but for the most part the transformation consists of lying on their belly.

The robot mode suffers from it, but the alt modes look kinda sweet in a very chibi sense. I've always wanted Guzzle, but for some reason he commands upwards of $30 on ebay last I checked. He's kinda nifty, but really only a $5 nifty at most.
