Universal Orlando Resort has a new light-up Transformers Bumblebee popcorn bucket available. We picked it up in the Universal Studios Store at CityWalk.

Light-up Transformers Bumblebee Popcorn Bucket – $34.99

Transformers Bumblebee Popcorn Bucket

Bumblebee is a mostly yellow Autobot with silver detailing and round eyes. The popcorn bucket depicts him in a small version of his robot form with a large head. Unfortunately, it does not fold up into a car, but it does have a couple of interactive features.

Transformers tag

The tag notes that the Bumblebee popcorn bucket has small parts and is not suitable for children under 3 years. It has small button batteries that are hazardous if swallowed.

Popcorn bucket instructions

The care instructions state the bucket is hand wash only. Users should wipe it clean with a damp cloth and gentle detergent, and then air dry. Do not fill the bucket with liquids or immerse it in water. Do not microwave or use it with heat.

There is a diagram showing where the batteries are stored in Bumblebee’s back. The compartment can be opened with a screwdriver.

Bending the legs also allows him to sit down.

Opening of Bumblebee bucket

The top of his head opens to operate as a bucket. The inside is also yellow.

Transformers strap

For easy carrying, the bucket has an adjustable yellow strap featuring the Transformers logo and wordmark. The strap is also detachable so you can display Bumblebee on his own at home.

Guests can meet Bumblebee, as well as Optimus Prime and Megatron, outside Transformers: The Ride 3-D in Universal Studios Florida. Bumblebee also appears on the ride, in which guests join the Autobots in their fight to keep the AllSpark away from Megatron and the Decepticons.

Universal Orlando Resort also has a new King Gator popcorn bucket for Mardi Gras.
