Bumblebee is the smallest of the Autobot Transformers. First appearing in 1984, he was the Autobot who first made contact with humans, portrayed as the youngest and most likeable of the group.
The character has appeared in every version of the Transformers franchise involving the Generation One characters as he is used as the link between humans and Autobots. He has also been a major part of the live action movies ans will star in his own standalone film.
Originally a yellow Volkswagen Beetle (the toy was a super deformed Choro Q version), he is usually yellow and transforms into a small two door car like a Suzuki SWift or Honda Civic but in the movies and associated toys is a Camaro of varying model.
Bumblebee had the most toys made of any Transformers character, even over Autobot leader Optimus Prime. This number is also boosted by Goldbug toys who is a rebuilt version of the little Transformer.
