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!

      One of the most successful Masterpiece models ever released, MP-21 came with his best bud Spike in his handy exosuit. The transformation, while relatively easy, is also pretty impressive.
