Transformers Bumblebee SHATTER (Car & Jet)!

Transformers Bumblebee - Energon Igniters - Shatter (Jet & Car) - Hasbro 2018

I just saw the Transformers: BumbleBee movie today and one of the major highlights for me was the original female Decepticon, Shatter. I read online that she was inspired by the G1 character Nightbird, and I guess I can see that in her face, but otherwise she seems like a wholly unique creation. Shatter and Dropkick (voiced by Angela Bassett and Justin Theroux) formed a classic brains vs brawn that I loved. If the movie had used classic well-known villains, I would have spent the entire two hours nitpicking the performance. But as it was I could just sit back and enjoy the movie. These initial two toys aren't a great example of modern Transformer engineering, but I wanted to celebrate this character so I picked them up. There is a 12" Titan and a Deluxe Movie figure coming out soon that should hopefully make up for them. Overall I'm just glad there was finally such a significant female presence in the TF cinematic universe. Let's check out these first two Shatter offerings below!

Shatter is a triple-changer who can change from robot, to car, to jet. These Energon Igniters figures are pretty simple from a transforming perspective, so there are two separate toys with a single vehicle form each.

This car version of Shatter comes with a Core Propulsor that plugs into the vehicle form to make it go.
The Jet version can also house one of these gadgets, but it's not included.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Cheers and Happy New Year!
