    Courtesy of: Studio Beelzeboss Goldbug Head Upgrade Kit - Growing Pains !

    It's a Goldbug upgrade head for Classics, RTS or United Bumblebee, along with other accessories.

    It's scheduled for the 4th quarter of this year, and Kapow Toys will have a preorder up very soon.

    This looks great! Now to go grab a United Bumblebee. :D

    looks cool, looking forward to seeing what the end product looks like. Not a huge fan of the bb mold, really want hastak to make a new one, but a new head would look nice. Maybe I can find another body that would work better.

    Damn, may have to get a second United BB. Didn't think I would like the figure, but in hand it is really quite nice as is. Can't wait to see the final product, looks like a solid pickup.

    Awesome, I'd like to see blue fists too though so it's not just a blue head randomly stuck on. Just helps tie the whole thing together better, and would only require knocking out one pin.

    I'm still very much looking forward to Venksta's set too. Which is bound to have extras this set won't.

    I may still get this one depending on the accessories it has. Also wouldn't mind having the extra head to try on WFC Bumblebee.

    A Bumper head would be nice too.

    Potentially you could have ;

    Bumper, Hubcap, Yellow Cliffjumper, & Goldbug.

    It's a shame there's not an official name for Red Bumblebee & Yellow Cliffjumper though. Also this post just reminds me of Hasbro only Making Cliffjumper once for Movie & Classics in a given size.

    I'm sort of thinking ;

    United Bee or RTS Bee = Goldbug
    Classics Bee or RTS Bee = Bumper
    Legacy Bee or RTS Bee = Hubcap
    And keep the Henkei one as BB humself

    The only reason I suggest a Black & Yellow Bee as Hubcap is that it reminds me a little of Machine Wars. and something with white on might suit Bumper as he seems more of a passive Character & white & yellow is quite a friendly look compared to stripes or tattoos or such.

    Nice idea though, I wish someone would use my ideas of a bandoleer of heads that you swap and then replace the heads with the ones you remove if you want too and then you drape it over Megatron NEST Bludgeon, or Movie Shockwave (for example) as an accessory.

    You could get all your replacement heads needs then in a onestop shop then.

    Definitely have to check this out, since I have Classics and 3-pack Bee, and RTS Deluxe Bee was pretty easy to grab last time I checked. The only real problem is none of them have much blue paint/plastic on them, but that could be easily remedied by offering the an alternate version of the head in some other base color like black or yellow.

    That's kind of how G1 Goldbug was, though.

    Is someone other than TFSource selling this?
