Transformers Animated: Bumper Battlers feature "bump-and-transform" action - hitting the front bumper causes the toy to change into robot mode, and pressing the toy's sigil activates sound effects and speech gimmicks. The Transformers Animated Bumper Battler Bumblebee seems to be the equivalent of one of the Cyber Slammers from the Movie 2007 line-up. He appears to support articulation at the elbows, and possibly at the neck. Bumblebeeâs kid-faced Animated aesthetic somewhat bears a resemblance to his Gen 1 incarnation; his helmet retains the characteristic small budding horns. Preferring action to words, Bumblebee enjoys his thruster-powered striped sportster mode. Bumblebeeâs boisterous exuberance overwhelms the majority of his action, leaving no interim for fear of the menacing Decepticons.
