Oh crap! They're back!

You guys remember that awesome Disney Transformer I featured last year? Well, check this out. They're back…

…and they're accessorized.

It's the next bot in the series – Bumbleduck (that's Donald Duck and Bumblebee).

So, I'm not sure what there is to say about these toys that wasn't covered last time, but I'll give you a brief recap. Takara Tomy has yet again combined the unexpected flavors of Disney and Transformers, and has created this truly unique and charming amalgamation. Now we've got Donald Duck in robot form, and it appears that he's got a beach theme going. He comes equipped with goggles and snorkel along with a jet-powered surfboard (a skateboard if you wanna be literal with the wheels and all).

I'm thinking this guy is cooler than the Mickey. His robot form is anyway. I know there was a bunch of whining and complaining by Transformers fans about Mickey's being a "shellformer," but it looks like Donald has moved away from that. (I'm not a die hard fan, so I don't care one way or another. Just thought I'd point that out.)

He has amazing details in the sculpt and paint apps. But I love the added bonuses…

He looks pretty cute driving his Volkswagen Beetle too. I think they did a great job of incorporating the giant robot skateboard into the vehicle mode.

These Transformers toys are fairly small, but what they lack in size, they make up for in quality. I'm no Transformers aficionado, so it doesn't take much to impress me. A cool-looking Donald Duck that transforms into a cute, little car just interests me. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the absurdity or the novelty or something.

And as before, I opted to buy the grayscale color scheme. It just feels so much more minimal and classic than the vibrant and gaudy color scheme. Am I wrong?

I also wanna humor myself in thinking the alternate grayscale color scheme is a tribute to the vintage, black and white Disney era.

Oh yeah, here's the packaging. It's pretty much the same as the previous figure. New photos of course.

And here's a look at the new Duck-themed Autobot emblem.

I'm pretty sure he's not meant to be a Decepticon. Who would be a Decepticon in this toyline anyway? Who are the Disney bad guys?

    @WeirdoToys Were it not for your hand; some of those photos look like ‘shopped b&w pics

    ARGH! I want this DUCK!! Ol’ Bumbleduck definitely seems cooler than Optimouse Prime. The cool factor on this guy is unbelievable. I especially love his cute vehicle mode. That little car has so much great personality. If only every transformer was this cool.. Great post!

    PS. Who would be a Decepticon? Pete would make a good candidate.

    Just found out he was already Boba Fett. http://ow.ly/28DHd

    RT @WeirdoToys: I guarantee this is the best duck robot toy you’ve seen today – http://www.weirdotoys.com/2010/07/02/dis

    I was going to suggest Pete as a Decepticon as well. But for some reason, my brain malfunctioned and the first character that I thought of for a Decepticon was Bluto which certainly would not make sense because he is not a Disney character.

    This was going to be a Christmas present about two years ago.
    I’m glad it is finally out. Great pictures.
    Dad.

    I ended up getting my sister the Optimus Mickey last year for Christmas (she’s an avid collector of all things Disney), and it’s truly impressive, although I will say, they turned out smaller than I thought they would based solely on the pictures. Your hands give a bit more perspective this time.

    I think we’re going to stick with the colored versions. The minimalist style might work for you, but to me, TF has always been one of the most colorful toy lines out there, so I like to see that reflected, even if these aren’t, you know, “canon,” or whatever.

    • Yeah, in my last blog post, I think I intentionally left out any size comparisons just to make the toy seem that much more grand. People were always shocked when they saw the real toy. It’s pretty tiny… especially for the price tag.

      I see what you mean with the vibrant colors that seem truer to the original Transformers, but luckily, I’m more drawn to these artistically and not nostalgically.

    @WeirdoToys That’s pretty incredible.

  9. tvmstudio says:

    @WeirdoToys Where do you find all these insane toys?

  10. smurfwreck says:

    @WeirdoToys Honestly, Huey, Dewy, and Louie would make awesome Deceptiducks…

  11. smurfwreck says:

    @WeirdoToys Can you imagine them as the three main seeker jets, Starscream, Thundercracker, and Ramjet?

  12. DrNightmare says:

    Finally a TF I actually like!
