    They're new to me as well. I might have heard some rumblings of them in the past, but other than sounding vaguely familiar I know nothing about them.

    Sorry guys, still no pics. Korean, difficult. Anyway here's some info on my new favorite no takara/hasbro transforming toy. I alt mode he's a white, full size shuttle bus. He has stickers for windows unfortunatly, but other than that he's an excellent realistic bus. He has a gold crome front bumper, and shiny black front and driver's windows.

    Transformation is very G1/G2. Sides of the bus flip out and swing down to become arms.Pivots at the waist ala inferno/grapple to form chest. Head pops up automamatically as you do this.Hands pop out of forearms arms ala tracks.Feels like a very G1 transformation. Only dissapointment at this stage is no transparent windows, but the design doesn't dissallow it per say, just the cheaper manufacturing process.

    The final robot is about a half inch shorter than devestator. (the only G1 bot i have here to compare). Which puts him at the correct scale with the G1 cars/op. Which as far as i'm concermed is the correct scale for transformers.He has all of the same colours as bus mode now, just some stickers giving some robotic details on his very G1 hips.The front of the bus is his torso, ala optimus/grapple/inferno. His legs are complete bricks, he can omly stand in a slightly legs akimbo pose, but it looks natural.His head resembles cartoon ironhide, with a mouth plate.The face is silver chrome with a gold chrome helmet. He comes with too weapons: an excellent large blue and silver rifle, with a sniper scope, and a sligthly out of place yellow medievel style sword, kind of like vector prime.He come equipped with little articulation, some lateral leg movement and excellent shoulder/arm articulation.
    I really like this guy. He looks liked he'd fit in really well with the G1ers with a little paint touch up and some nicer autobot stickers.Pictures are forthcoming, i promise.

    I LOVE KOREA!

    Did'nt Soundwarp have a similar busformer not too long ago?

    Sounds like a cool fig, we need a Transforming bus to haul all the Minicons to Autobot school.
    Thanks for the tease, I mean info.
    Look foward to the pics.

    Weird, you probably didn't need to go as far as Korea to find that bus guy... I found one in a tiny newsagents in Dublin a few months ago. Couldn't resist buying him 'cause, well, he's a bus. The one you described sounds exactly the same, sword and all.

    He's cool alright, despite having the least glamourous alt mode of all time

    I remember pics of a bus TF in this very forum last year sometime...I though the thing was a turd. I hope the one being talked about isn't that one, because we need a good bus TF.

    This tiny place in Stoneybatter - where they sell real pound-shop crappy toys. Wandered in there earlier last year and he was sitting there in a pile of useless stuff, was only 6 or 7 quid so I picked him up 'cause he made me laugh. Might get a chance to dig him out and post up a pic or 2, be curious if it's the same one as you got - sounds like it anyway.
