Bumblebee is the smallest Autobot besides Rewind and Blockrock. He transforms into a yellow Dodge Viper. He is almost as brave as Optimus Prime, and wouldn't dare leave his friends in danger. His weaponry consists of a small laser pistol and an arm-mounted quick-firing rocket launcher.
Bumblebee, Jazz, Blaster, Rewind, and Blockrock were the first Autobots to arrive on earth in search of the Key to Vector Sigma. Bumblebee and Jazz landed near a sports car store, and Bumblebee scanned a Dodge Viper, while Jazz scanned a Chevy Mustang. They met up with their allies, who had scanned their forms from an electronics store.
