Transformers Series 1 Minibot Bumblebee

1984 AFA 85 Pre Rub

Bumblebee is one of the most iconic characters of the Transformers franchise. Friendly with humans, and always ready to carry more than his own weight, this minibot fearlessly transforms into a VW Beetle. He was offered in the US in two colors; the recognizable yellow of the cartoon and comics and an alternative red. His mold was used previously by Takara in the Microchange line.  This figure came from a collection in Maine. The original owner purchased all 6 minibots, at the same time, at the same store, and on the same date. He wrote the date on the back of each card.
