In connection with BUMBLEBEE being released for home viewing, I received a Family Kit from Paramount Home Media Distribution that includes the Blu-ray Combo pack and a variety of Hasbro toys. I was SO excited, I didn't even wait for my son to come home. I opened the kit myself!
Inside the kit was:
- Bumblebee Blu-ray Combo Pack
- DJ Bumblebee
- Bumblebee Stinger Blaster
- Bumblebee: Energon Igniters Series
- Dropkick: Energon Igniters Series
- Transformers Turbo Changers
I did a quick video showing the toys, along with a demo of DJ Bumblebee. Because that toy is SO FUN!
DJ Bumblebee Transformers Toy Demo
You speak/say a phrase and it adds the words to one of the 3 songs and plays it back to you. Watch the video to see how it works.
I was really tempted to keep playing with the toys, but my son and nephew wanted their turn to help BUMBLEBEE save earth. So I passed the toys to them and let them play while I prepared for movie night.
Of course the boys (and my nieces) enjoyed the film. Who doesn't like battling robots?! But unlike other movies featuring him, BUMBLEBEE has a bit of nostalgia for long time fans. This version of Bumblebee has to learn to work with humans, how to survive on earth and how to grow into the warrior Bumblebee Auto-bot we know and love. I enjoyed this take back and different path to a modern Bumblebee.
The film also offers kid friendly humor and character interactions. The friendship between Bumblebee and Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) is nice for girls and boys to see. Girls can be mechanics, save robots and the world also. Ha!
Overall a good film additions for Transformers loving families to enjoy.
The film BUMBLEBEE, now available on Digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD from Paramount Home Media Distribution features over an hour of exciting special bonuses.
Plus, check out deleted and extended scenes you didn’t see in theaters, including the original opening of the movie, enjoy hilarious outtakes, and see G1 (Generation 1) TRANSFORMERS robots on CYBERTRON through the eyes of BUMBLEBEE with exciting Bee Vision.

As the DECEPTICONS hunt down the surviving AUTOBOTS with the help of a secret agency led by Agent Burns (John Cena), BUMBLEBEE and Charlie team up to protect the world.
