Transformers Classics Blue Bumblebee now on Ebay!

Blue Bumblebee returns! Now he is on Ebay!

Low and behold, the mysterious Blue Bumblebee found yesterday has popped up again – this time on the Ebay store of legendary seller Mugen Robo Sanctum.

The price of this piece is likely to reach the $300 range if the auction is indeed true: it is being listed as a TakaraTomy Lucky Draw.  The problem with this type of situation is that information is vary limited.  People could end up spending a boat-load of cash on a figure that is mass produced, or else they can “snag” a very rare item at a somewhat lower price than normal.

This is the type of thing that makes Transformers collecting really fun, that is if you have the cash to play the game.  At least we know this is indeed a legit figure, just look at the copyright stamp below!  Collecticon will follow this auction and let you know what happens.  Photos are from Paranooid’s auction.

Mysterious Blue Classics Bumblebee

Blue Classics Bumblebee found on ACtoys

So just who are you?

Stop the presses, a new Classics Bumblebee redeco has surfaced? TFW2005.com is reporting that these images were found on ACtoys.

My first instinct was to call this a Botcon toy, but there is no G2 symbol on it. Also, there is chrome on the shins, just like the Henkei Bumblebee. This guy is also SCREAMING knock-off, but something is tugging me towards it being official…

Perhaps it is the fact that the original version of Bumblebee in Microchange came in a beautiful creamy blue, just like this specimen. If you check out this glorious article from TF-1, you will see a little bit about the history of this amazing little blue bee.

Mysterious Blue Classics Bumblebee

He's all grown up now!

This kind of sparks my interest because what if TakaraTomy is planning some sort of retro-PRE-TF homage line? That would be amazing because as it turns out, Botcon chose not to do a commemorative line for their next boxset. Also, with Diaclone being originally launched in 1980, this would be the 30th anniversary of the toyline… We all know how those Japanese love their anniversary toys!!!
