Thanks to my friend Battle Armor Dad for contributing to this review!
You asked your mom for an Optimus Prime, but you got a Bumblebee instead. This happened for 2 reasons:
- You’re a little shit
- Despite working two jobs, it’s much easier for your mom to afford a Bumblebee than an Optimus Prime
The year was 1984. Or was it 1993?
The phenomenon of getting “the little ones” (or Minibots, or Mini-Vehicles) as gifts is something that unites both 80s kids and 90s kids. Even if the older generation is still mad about smokestack sizes and newer Megatron toys being allowed inside of airports, it’s hard for them to not empathize with our shared plight.
If you were into Transformers in the 80s and 90s, chances are you had the Minibots. They were cool, charming, and affordable, which made them appeal to our overworked, underpaid parents.
Unless you were a rich kid. If so, this post is not for you. Go invest in a failing brick and mortar video game store, waste your money on some poser-ass Kings of Leon adult contemporary crypto MP3s, enjoy your inherited success, and come back for the next review.
This Transformers Generation 2 Minibots review is for the real ones.
