    That doesn't look like the prototype they've shown before. Although I don't think they ever specifically said it would be produced.

    Igear PP04 Revealed...Bumblebee

    Igear just posted this on their facebook and I thought i'd share it with anyone that hasn't seen it. It looks to be Bumblebee.

    Saw your rant. As I've stated, iGear has this stuff pretty well mapped out. Trust me. What some see as stalling, OR as long time between releases, they also look at whats out now, whats coming out soon, and whats being developed by other companies in the future. SO what you are seeing TONIGHT has been on the table for a WHILE, and we may not see it for months. I mean MONTHS! ha

    It'll be interesting to see how this stacks up against Alternity Bee. That certainly wasn't 100% G1, but it really did capture the spirit and was a very nicely detailed/put together toy. I actually display it with my BT toys rather than the other Alternity (he's awfully big in bot mode compared to the rest of them).

    I've known about this for quite a while, glad to see it's finally getting closer to a release. My only remaining hope is that it's classics sized.

    Looks quite different to me... They sorted the chest for a start, it's the roof not the rear of the car. Glad they decided to ditch that new Beetle version and go for the classic VW design. This could very probably be the Bumblebee I've been waiting for all these years :drool:

    I'm glad they didn't base it on Alternator Bee. This is a lot closer to G1, and I'm very impressed by what I am seeing here. Don't think it will replace Classics Bumblebee for me though. Classics Bee may not be a Beetle, but his robot mode does has a ton more personality.

    To be honest I hope that this is a scout class and not deluxe. I like a range of sizes in my toys, not everyone about the same height.
    If he's deluxe, I'll be passing on him - we'll see as we get more info, I guess
    But dear heavens between the seekers and PP05 (and maybe some of the Wreckers) my wallet is already screaming^^
    Then you add on Hercules and the like and it dies and fades to gray^^

    Since I already have a Classics Bumblebee, I won't be getting this one.

    The PP series is all scaled to each other, using the old G1 Scale Sheet (below). Since Faith Leader is in scale to Classics like Prowl & Jazz (only some Classics will be in scale), Ironhide, Ratchet & Bumblebee should all be the right size for Certain Classics.

    Since Bumblebee is supposed to be smaller, then if they are indeed going by this chart, which Fabemax says they are (& he's in the know w/ iGear), then PP-04 should indeed be closer to Scout than Deluxe.

    & to show Ironhide is proper size:

    According to the G1 Scale Chart, Ironhide should be bigger than car Autobots like Jazz & Prowl.
