    I should have noted in the title that this is a vintage VW model and not the modern version prototype that they posted several months ago.

    We've seen robot mode image(s), to my knowledge this is the first vehicle mode one.

    Will judge more when we see some real images and not the clay / resin version. This clay / resin prototype is very likely to change, the final one will probably feature sharper details.

    So IGear have a use after all.
    Giving us something HasTak can't legally make is actually a cool thing.
    Not bad for a bunch of theives.

    Interesting. Hopefully the robot mode will look better than the awful one we have seen before.

    The vehicle mode sculpt looks pretty good. Hopefully they show the robot mode soon and release it eventually.

    Looks like Legends and Scout class.

    Would that mean it would be in scale with the PP-01? I can sort of see it if it was based on the G1 cartoon. PP-01 and this Bumblebee would recreate the G1 cartoon quite well

    I'd probably pass on this, not a fan of the old love bug.

    If you ever want to get a Movie BB I think you'll have a few options :lol 

    As for this BB, I'm very intrested as I'd like a proper VW Bumblebee to replace the Henkei one in my Classics display.

    By original, I am sure the poster meant that this is not a scaled down knock off of a Hastak product.

    Guess what??? It's not. THUS Original!!!

    Looks better than the uninspired Classics version.
