    Is some in package pics of the new Upgrade sets to turn your Bumblebee into Hubcap or Bumper and new versions of the TAW Swords they come in two sets one with the Bumper head and one with the blue sword and one with the Hubcap head and the red sword they also come with Unique hand guns to be given to your newly upgraded Hubcap & Bumper too - the swords were originally designed to be used with Optimus Prime or Ultra Magnus and the red one is for Nemesis Prime These may be considered to be Knock Off of existing TFC & Renderform products - But I do not know about the guns if they also have another origin originally.

    There is also on the same site some Images of the prototype/sample of the G2 colour Masterpiece Ramjet by igear and a few images of Botcon Octopunch.

    Venksta's seems to be in limbo, or stalled, at the least. I'm okay with MGS' work here. If it's accessible and affordable, I'll bite.

    Last I heard, Bumper and Hubcap are being done after Goldbug is done... Based on the packaging above, it looks like the heads will be included with the swords (which were $70 a pop last time without a bonus head).

    G2 colour Masterpiece Ramjet by igear looks ok,so i assume that the bot mode is also similar to the TFCC G2 Ramjet as well.

    Crap. Yeah, it definitely looks like you have to buy all the other crud in order to get one small replacement head. Forget that noise.

    Venksta showed up again in his Renderform thread. He got a very bad flu and had to take some time off.

    I would hardly call that design Crap. since you get two arm shields that i think also fit on the City Commander vehicle mode too, back cannons/ jetpack and a sword for the Voyager Optimus classics mould that also fit on City Commander and combine into one big staff ideal for Godfire Convoy (Omega Prime) or City Commander that closely resembles the God Master Sword. and the arm guards even look a bit like the shields they had in beast wars too if you wanted to find another use for them. Personally I quite like the idea of Jetpack Ultra Magnus or Nemesis Prime.

    So No Crud isn't a word I'd use for them even if they cost the same as the previous ones then it's still good value for the extra gun and head. But I suspect they will be cheaper. Heck some would be happy just to have the smaller sword for City Commander or Dia Commander.

    Oh and the G2 Ramjet isn't the final one it's on the 15 or so Prototypes they did that ships in a white box.

    Yup, I'm sticking with Venksta too. Looking forward to Gold Scout's arrival.

    No, no, no. I'm not calling any of it crap.

    First off, it's all nice. I just don't have any use for the sword.

    I only wrote "crud" in place of "stuff". I just want Bumper's head, so I guess I'll TRY to get one of Renderform's/Venksta's Bumper head UNLESS this company offers the heads alone (or head and gun alone, etc.) on the cheap.

    The "crap" was my response to someone else pointing out what should have been obvious to me - that it's part of a much bigger set. Like, "oh, crap!", not my impression of their work.

    Red Alert - You've gotta get a different avatar pic! Even though you have the most salient, cohesive, and level-headed posts, every time I see that (or the previous, especially) pic, I'm stopped for a minute to wonder who she is, if she's a TransFan (we all know that's not possible...), why you would put a picture of a woman as your avatar, etc.

    Though Ramjet looks deliciously garrish, I know I can't afford what would just be a "for-kicks" repaint, if it's priced like the other iGear cone-heads.

    Considering I do write post in the middle of the night - I'd say that those are the posts of mine that the less coherent ones.

    Oh and I changed my Pic again (tease)

    I call shenanigans. NO Transfan (maybe a tranny fan?) looks like that. Sorry.

    So, since PE released the original TAW God-Swords, are these KOs then?

    Preference doesn't matter.

    But damn... sucks that they're KOs. I've wanted a TAW God-Sword set for some time.
