Transformers action figures have seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years, especially among a younger audience. Although many children are excited to get their hands on these transforming robots, a lot of the toys are intricately designed and require a good deal of dexterity to transform correctly. One such Transformers toy that has been noted as being notoriously difficult to transform is the deluxe class Bumblebee from the "Transformers" movie series. Here is a guide on how you can pull off the transformation from robot form to vehicle form.
- Skill level:
Remove the plasma cannon that Bumblebee holds in his hand.
Pick up the figure and transform the right leg by pulling out the yellow flap located on the back of Bumblebee
s right heel. With your index finger on the flap, use your thumb to apply pressure to the bottom of the figures right foot to fold the leg in half. Slide down the panel on middle part of the right leg and snap it in place.
Transform the left leg. Pull out the yellow flap located on the back of Bumblebee
s left heel. With your index finger on the flap, use your thumb to apply pressure to the bottom of the figures left foot to fold the leg in half. Slide down the panel on middle part of the left leg and snap it in place.
Push the two transformed legs together to form the rear of the car, which happens to be a 2008 Chevy Camaro.
Push down the headlights found on the sides of Bumblebee's chest.
Pull out the arms of the figure so they are extended as far out from the body as possible. This is to prevent wheels from getting in the way when you transform the bonnet of the car.
Lift up the yellow flap located behind the head and then pull up on the chest piece to form the front of the car.
Bend the arms inward and flip the yellow panels on the forearms around to form the roof of the car.
Rotate the door panels found on the front wheels so that doors are parallel with the rest of the car when closed.
Push inward gently on the door panels to slide them into place. Make sure the arms are lined up with the small pegs on the windshield so you can then snap the roof panels of the car into place.
Close the doors of the car and snap them into place to complete the transformation.
