    With iGear likely to do a Goldbug variant of their Bumblebee I'll probably wait for that one as the alt mode will be more accurate but I'll get the Bumper set and use it on Henkei Bumblebee.

    Wow that vortex head has to be the uglyest thing I have ever seen. So does not work with a movie mould.

    looks like there is a pretty sizable gap on the vortex head. looks flush at the top and just opens up on the way down to the end, hope that isnt final.

    Yup, thats true. As mentioned on the website post, its just a rough design prototype. All the heads are only held by pegs, and not screws. Final designs will have any issues like that worked out, just like the RF-005 kit. I mentioned a gap on that head, and a lot of people are finding there are no gaps.

    RtS Bumblebee now has a meaning to exist to me.

    Now if I can only ever find one at retail, he will SO be getting the Hubcap upgrade.

    They should. IIRC, DotM Vortex removes the scanner under the nose, in favour of a 5mm port for his Mechtech weapon. So Venksta's gun, also having a 5mm handle, should fit just fine under the nose.

    They all look great, one minor niggle, I think Hubcaps head it a touch to big. Other then that, spot on. Goldbugs is the winner out of all, mad detail there. Nice work Venks!
