The Best Bumblebee Toys, Ranked

List RulesVote up your favorite versions of Bumblebee.

As the "little brother" of the Autobots, Bumblebee is always trying to prove his worth. Fortunately, after decades of appearances in all sorts of Transformer media from shows to movies to even his very own standalone film, Bumblebee has done more than enough to earn his place in the Transformers' Hall of Fame.

Bumblebee's extreme popularity over the years has given toy designers ample opportunity to constantly tweak the character from a humble Volkswagen Beetle to the supercharged Chevrolet Camaro in Transformers: The Last Knight. As such, there have been dozens of different Bumblebee versions throughout the years and each is more exciting than the last. While most of the best Bumblee versions sport some variation of his signature yellow and black paint job, every once in a while the toys have departed in new and fresh ways.

We've made a list of some of the greatest Bumblebee toys over the years, and it's up to you all to vote up the best of the best. Don't see your favorite Bumblebee here? Add him to the list!

        Toyline: Classics

        Alt mode: Hatchback sports car

        Before the live-action movies hit, Hasbro was trying to find a way to revamp Bumblebee into the modern age. The Deluxe Classics toy is a great figure that toed the line between nostalgic and new.

          Toyline: Bayverse

          Alt mode: Armored car

          It's pretty cool that the one scene of Bumblebee as a tank in The Last Knight became its very own toy. If nothing else, this version of Bee is memorable because it's unlike any other iteration.
