    Came across these pics in a recent blog post by Brianne Drouhard, one of the designers on TFA.

    :thumb  So apparently this is Glyph:

    I don't really know the story behind Glyph or if we can expect a screen appearance, but it's a super cute design, and certainly deserves a part.

    I would've thought I'd be getting a bit tired of yet another variation on the Cybertronian Bug, but they've all been good, and this new one is really refreshing. So cool.

    I dunno, it's getting to be kinda bittersweet seeing design after design, all these terrific characters that in all likelihood aren't getting the toy treatment. Wish we could get Hasbro to wake up.

    ... wasn't familiar with the name, but apparently it's based on an old Botcon exclusive.

    Damn that's cute.

    We really need to convince Hasbro to make a Cybertron Bumblebee. Just so all of these other figures could be made as exclusives later down the road.

    Maybe because Everyone (Not Waspinator,Tap Out & Hubcap) are repaints of Bumblebee, and we still needing Bug Bite,Bumper,Wheelie,Tasmania Kid & Goldbug.

    Seriously, give me Animated Bug Bite dammit. The head cameo in Arrival was too much of a tease.

    I <3 Glyph!!

    Seriously, the TFA designs are really impressive to me... The design for Tap-Out was really cool, and this compliments it perfectly. Please let them be in the show!

    Simple. The consumer demands more toys from Hasbro, so we can give hasbro more munnies. I don't wanna let my Fanimation go :cry 

    I absolutely hate repaints but damnit, I've already gotten a second Shockwave, and Sunstorm :banghead:  and no I've gotten Sami Prowl. When will this end?!?!?!? And now I wanna candy Glyph. i need help

    This. I don't know why I like these two, but I do. There's something well thought-out about them, for some reason.

    But not siblings, though.

    Probably.

    My first Cybertronian was done in a newsletter style format for the second Botcon and in it we gave the red BB and yellow CJ fan Tech Specs. (Bumper too back when he was called Bumblejumper)

    In fact, we named the red Bumblebee Ladybug and made her BB's kid sister. (I think we made her function to be OP's secretary.) I'd love to see this Glyph colored red, black and tan/gold. Just to see how she'd look.

    Most of the bots look like they are in their underwear. Except Old Ratchet. Old Ratchet has boxers...Young Ratchet, however, has breifs...I have noted this...a fact of which I am ashamed. I could make a whole topic about my observations concerning the panties versus pants issue....but I won't. Becuase that would just...cross the line.

    But I will say this:

    I think we have yet to see a fembot not in panties. I dunno about Red Alert, I will have to check...again, making this a really akward comment, but it is really interesting...to me at least.

    Glyph is adorable!

    I would love to see a "Ladybug" repaint! Screw Sari, BumbleBee needs to get himself a real..."lady." Haw haw.

    ok, seriously Hasbro, think about it:

    Cybertronian Bumblebee
    Cybertronian Wasp
    Cliffjumper
    Tap-Out
    Glyph (slight retooling)

    thats 5 toys. 5. all of which people would buy. i mean seriously, how did they miss out on this?
