I-Gear WIP Volkwagen Beetle Bumblebee and Cliffjumper In Colors

By bwbm on Monday, January 17, 2011



I-Gear has posted some images on their Facebook page to update us on their current work in progress, the scout-sized classic Volkswagen Beetle. We first learned about this new custom earlier this month. The images show off the yellow Bumblebee version as well as the red Cliffjumper version in both vehicle and robot mode. Take a look at the images in the gallery.

That's because they bootlegs. No new engineering, no improvements, just changing the vehicle parts to look like a Beetle.

These pieces of crap are up for pre-order. $18.00 each or $30 for the pair. (link)

It looks like the same figure to me, apart from making him more Beetle-like. It looks like it transforms exactly like the official Legends class. Remold may not be the right term, but this is obviously based on the Hasbro mold. If they hand made some functional change, I'd be tempted, but as is... read more

That robot mode is disappointing. I'll pass on this. What happened to the other mold that was a modern VW Beetle? Is this that same mold, but they decided to make it the classic Beetle instead?

If only they could have come up with better looking and more articulated arms, I would have gotten it. But the field is still open. Someone out there do a new deluxe size Bumblebee/Cliffjumper that transforms into an old style beetle and I'd love to get it.

More Third Party News
Gcreation China has posted an image of the first two figures of a projected IDW-style line in Masterpiece scale! Pricing is not yet known, but in the comments it's explained that the figures scale to MP-10 Optimus Prime and MP Prowl, suggesting that MP-10's trailer will be compatible with the new IDW Prime. It's also mentioned that "cool weapons" are in development for the figures, and that more figures are being planned for the line. Keep reading to see the image!
Maz from TFSquareOne has spent some time photographing Seraphicus Prominon, Mastermind's version of Nova Prime and posting about it to his Twitter. The figure inspired a bit of recoil when it was revealed exactly how expensive getting the full package of figure plus trailer/armor would end up being. With this we can finally start to get a sense of whether it's worth the hefty price tag. We've copied some of Maz's photos and collected his comments on the figure, and you can check it all out below!
Garatron has posted testshot images to Weibo showing of the second in their Gand of Devils line! Following up on their impressive IDW Thunderwing will be G.o.D.-02 Galaxy Destroyer, a take on Unicron very, very similar to the unproduced Beast Wars Neo version that we've all seen photos for over the years. While not an exact match, it's close enough that you'd almost hope a grayscale version is produced just for fun. Click through to see more!
539Designs, one of the designers who contribute to X-Transbots has posted an update to their DeviantArt account today. The print form of the just-released Arkose's instructions are apparently missing a panel depicting a portion of the transformation process. The missing portion has been published to DeviantArt along with the immediate prior and subsequent steps to show where this part is meant to take place. We've mirrored this image and cropped out the relevant panel as well for higher detail. Keep reading to get the info for this unofficial Beachcomber!
MakeToys really knocked it out of the park with MTRM-03 Hellfire and MTRM-05 Wrestle. These homages to the Transformers characters Inferno and Grapple are so immaculately done that they’re hard to put down. The build, colors, and even finish are extremely impressive in-hand and even the ratcheting areas feel very strong with small enough ratchet spaces to not feel like they’re restrictive in terms of movement/posing.
