    Looks like a Jiazai, possibly wonderfest? Found on 4chan.

    If it had a more detailed face, and a smaller Autobot emblem, it would be perfect.

    As is, it's still pretty cool.

    I liked the ones made by whoever made the War Within Cybertronian mode Optimus one. (long time ago) that was nice.

    I like the idea I'm just not a fan of Anime style toys (Transformers Animated aside)

    By far the best version of this I've ever seen. I'd pay $30 - $40 for one.

    Needs better face and smaller emblem, I agree.

    while we have no size comparison pictures( as of yet anyway), something in the back of my head tells me this is around the size of the original G1 toy... call it a hunch if you must...

    Looks more like a scratch-built custom than a 3rd party prototype. I guess we'll see though.

    Didn't some fan convention do a similar toy once long ago?

    EDIT: Found it, CybCon 2004 Bumblebee. This one is a bit better.

    Okay, yeah. That's pretty cool.

    What really impresses me is how it manages to keep pretty much the same character model as the G1 robot mode. Makes me want to see more Cybertronian mode toys try to pull this off.

    Looks good. But, I will be passing. Classics BB and WFC BB are enough for BB me.

    great idea, not-so-great execution.
    Personally I don't like the look of either modes, but I do appreciate that the bot mode looks like the G1 earth mode version like Tekno said.

    Expect to pay way more because this is a small-run Wonderfest piece, with probably only 50 in existence or something like that. It's a hand-casted resin piece.

    Dunno if it'll draw the same the same crowd as the Jizaitoys stuff. Not quite as well realized as those, but it's going to be the same sort of deal.

    Looks like an early prototype/custom. Cool.
