Battle Ops Bumblebee
Beloved Autobot changes from concept Camero to powerful opponent
The most beloved Autobot from Transformers is Bumblebee, so it is no wonder that there are numerous manifestations of this figure in the world of toys. If one were limited to picking only one action figure from the host of action figures that have come out from the recent films (and indeed the long-running television program before the current movies), Bumblebee would have to be the one. He has the most name recognition; he has the charming personality; he is the protector; he goes through the most risk and the most suffering in the recent films.
Transformers originated in the 1980s as a toy line co-produced by Hasbro and Takara Tomy, introducing a novel concept where action figures could transform between humanoid and vehicular forms. The franchise's core theme revolves around the eternal battle between two factions: the heroic Autobots and the nefarious Decepticons. While the original toys were a blend of various Japanese transforming robot toy lines, the accompanying media cemented the characters and storylines into a singular, cohesive universe.
