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.

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 the unofficial Optimal Optimus will have an opponent in the near future. On Facebook, Perfect Effect has released the first tease for a new entry in their Perfect Beast series, a silhouette-style CG render of what is unmistakably Transmetal 2 Megatron. Even in this state it's clear the design has been passed through the Perfect Effect stylizing filter, which may or may not work for some collectors. And don't be surprised to see at least an additional blue version be announced before too long, too... Keep reading to see the full size image.

If you felt that this year's exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime from San Diego Comic Con bore a bit of resemblance to the old exclusive Nucleon Quest Super Convoy redeco of Powermaster Optimus/Super Ginrai from the early 2000s, you weren't alone.

PC-20 Black Jinrai is due out around November, and features a new super mode head unique to this release which, along with the chest plate addon, are decoed to blend in with the SDCC Optimus. Check out the promo images, mirrored below!
