I actually...... kinda dig it, although a new head from say Renderform would be an improvement.
Sorry to go slightly o/t, but we haven't seen anything of Banzaitron and Galvatron yet, have we?
Looks a lot nicer than the images we've seen previously. I still don't think I really need two of this mold, but it's not bad.
Really wish they made different heads for these guys. But I'll still buy em, cause I like the Alternity line and maybe, just maybe we'll see some new molds next year.
It does look nice, but not $75 nice. When the "no new head" news broke on this guy, he went from "sure buy" to "wait for clearance."
But he does look nice enough that I DO hope that clearance comes someday. I'd buy him for $50-ish, no question.
the gold paint help sell this to me as gold bug but.... with out a face mask I just cant get past the repaint factor.
So if their is a 3rd party company reading this make a new head and say a gun and I'd think you would be onto a winner.
ToyArena has 'em both for $65, last I checked. Goldbug looks nice, but I'd rather drop the money on Dai Atlas, personally.
Looks nice but I'm happy with the normal bee. Maybe latter if the price goes down and a 3rd party head is made.
Never got the first Bee, went with Cliff for the awesome paint. Might get this guy if he goes on sale. Same goes for Dai Atlas, I'd get him for the Powered Convoy colors.
I really like the blue used on this guy. If only it wasn't so expensive
...I rather purchase the Cliffjumper.
Since I still don't have this mold, I would probably go for the Cliffjumper as well. That said, I don't completely hate this version either.
For some reason because the blue is a darker shade then it looked in previous pics it actually somehow looks pretty good to me, despite being a repainted BB head. Not sure why that is.
Also, it's an Alternity. If we need an explanation as to why he has a blue BB head, maybe he exists in both his own future and past at the same time.
Why does he have those SUPER SMALL guns?
Perhaps he does not need a whole new head just a clip on mask - that would fit in with the way the comics showed Bumblebee using a battle Mask resembling his Microchange head and the Goldbug head is not to different to the 1984 toy head really. so that might be an option over an above a whole new head.
If someone makes a proper head for it I might get it
Like others, if the price goes down it's a maybe. At $75 + with non-remolded head I have no interest at all.
I would much rather of had a deluxe gold bug, but this is okay
He looks like hes wearing a robo diaper.
still i wont swallow it being more expensive then a regular Binaltech was.
Although the rant i still like em and will prolly buy them to
I actually like it, well except for the straight-repaint head. I wish they just used a head similar to the original Goldbug, you know, with the face plate down or even better retractable.
