I-Gear WIP Volkwagen Beetle Bumblebee and Cliffjumper In Colors
bwbm - 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.

It looks like FansHobby's Gunfighter II (G2 Laser Optimus) is getting a fair bit of attention this week. FansHobby have posted a quick gallery of the current testshot, showing the poseability and accessories primarily. They note that at least some of these images are partially Photoshopped to represent the intended final deco, due to the recently highlighted design alterations delaying their ability to have their factory prepare them a deco proof sample right now. But most of the photos seem to clearly depict the plastic-colors testshot with no extra colors added anyway. Gunfighter II is expected to release in June. Keep reading for the mirrored gallery!
The Perfect Effect Origin Leonidas figure stands about 9" (23cm) tall in robot mode and contains die-cast parts. This fierce transforming beast changes from a robot warrior into a lion and boasts over 60 points of articulation.
Fanshobby has posted some new pictures to their Facebook page, showing the latest full color testshot of Gunfighter II, the Optimus Prime recolor of their Scourge/Black Convoy figure, Arch Enemy. Gunfighter II shows some of the minor revisions now that Fanshobby highlighted recently, such as the modified chest panels. Also new to this round of photography is a showing of the two guns this release will come with: both a classic G1 Optimus rifle, and the double barrel Laser Prime gun, depicted here as a prototype while the mold for it is being worked on. We've mirrored the photos below, click through to have a look!
From our forums, TMan978 has shared a video of an interesting new figure. Wei Jiang, known fairly well for making upscaled, surprisingly high quality knockoffs of both official products and the occasional third party item has recently made an upsized iteration of Generations Arcee, theoretically scaled to Masterpiece figures. There's a few other things altered with the figure too, though probably more on the minor side. Check out the embedded video below to have a look at this offering.
The Facebook page TF Robots has shared several photos showing an early prototype for what's reported as a new project from Unique Toys. Currently only identified as Y-05, the figure represents Lockdown from Age of Extinction. This is believed to be roughly Leader scale, and from the pictures is intended to include quite a bit in the way of accessories - including one of the attack dog units seen on Lockdown's ship. The robot shows little immediate sign of how it will transform, but the absence of backside images could suggest a lot of panels on the rear. We've got all the images below, keep reading to see!
