    Any word or has anyone heard of a volkswagon beetle (newer version) of bumblebee? I cannot believe out of all the alternators out there, there isnt a 98 to 09 VW Beetle. WTF?! I dont think bumblebee ever had a good version of the toy. The 1984 toy was a sorry ass toy considering how much of an important role he had as a character in the series. The classic/henkei has got to be the best bumblebee ever made. Maybe even a masterpiece version would be awesome.

    Has/Tak designed a Bumblebee Alternator (with Cliffjumper repaint/ remold) when the line first started but Volkswagon denied them the lisence because they didn't want to be involved in a line of 'War Toys'. They also had Jazz designed as a Porche but were denied for the same reasons.

    I'm perfectly happy with the Classics version, it's a great toy and perfect update.

    No, no. There's gonna be an Alternity Bumblebee. Y'know, the Alternity line? It's a fairly new line similar to Alternators.

    No. They originally planned it and sketched it out, but the VW license was denied (for the Alternators). So it only exists on paper.

    Alternity, there's going to be a Bumblebee, but he's not a VW Beetle of any sorts.

    And the Alternity BB isn't a VW anyway.

    I've been working on a custom one for a few years now. Got a VW model kit that's close to the same scale as the other alts. It'll be great if I ever get it finished.

    Pretty cool. Couldn't it have been possible for HasTak to have just altered a few details on it so it wouldn't be a proper Beetle, so to speak?

    The line is Liscensed vehicles. If it wasnt a beetle anymore then it would be kinda out of place. But I guess maybe they could've changed the vehicle parts to be another liscensed vehicle?

    Alternity BB looks awesome. Preordered mine (along with Donald Duckatron which IS a VW) and can't wait!
