Movie News: Hailee Steinfeld and Bumblebee team up

Empire Online has released a new image from next year's "Bumblebee" movie featuring Hailee Steinfeld as Charlie and Bumblebee in vehicle form. G1 fans will note that Bumblebee is not a Chevrolet Camaro but rather has the retro form of a Volkswagon beetle! While the original live action movie in 2007 gave a rather mean spirited nod to the Beetle, this is the first time we have seen Bumblebee actually taking on that form.

Well these are new interpretations of a G1 character known as Battletrap, a Duocon!

Toy Reviews: "Robots in Disguise" Spychanger reviews restored with new photos

Several years ago BWTF went dark for a year out of legal obligation to a former partner. When the site was relaunched, several old reviews did not go back up for various reasons. Over time I have worked to restore some of these reviews with new photos. The latest reviews to be restored are "Robots in Disguise" Daytonus and Side Burn as well as Prowl 2 and Side Swipe!
