"The least likely can be the most dangerous."
Small, eager, and brave, Bumblebee acts as messenger
and spy. Due to his small size, he dares to go where others can't
and won't. He idolizes the bigger Autobots, especially Optimus Prime
and Prowl, and strives to be accepted. He is the most energy efficient
and has the best vision of all the Autobots. He can go underwater
for reconnaissance and salvage missions. Although physically the
weakest Autobot, his stealth more than compensates for this inadequacy.
Also of note: though not retoolings of this mold, the figures (and subsequent toolings) of Cliffjumper (1984) and Bumper (1984) share similar engineering.
