Taken exactly from the box...
Far from being a drawback.
Bumblebe's diminutive size is his greatest asset. He goes where no other can,stealthily evadingsensors and alarms designed for intruders much bigger and brasher,making him an ideal choice for covert ops/insertion missions.
Wisecracking,brash,and sometimes overeager.
Bumblebee is nevertheless cool and collected in a tight spot,seeing optiongs and possiblities where none readily appear.Ifthere's a weakess,it's that in command sitiuations he tries a little to hard.Overcompensatingfor his lack of overall stature.
