Robot Kingdom has updated their Facebook page with images of prototypes of iGear's four upcoming Miniwarriors - Stinger, Rocky, Red Baron and Busta, their unlicensed versions of Minibots Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Powerglide and Wheelie respectively. The images show off each character in robot and alternate mode, along with some size comparison images alongside another of iGear's Miniwarriors, Bushwacker.

This is new and bought as well.

CJ is way better than BB but they are both bought. I am not feeling the BB head very much at all but damn that CJ head. If the size and colour are right I can see peopel buying CJ just for the head. Although I love how the Alt modes are perfect G1 alt modes.

Big day for iGear reveals. 4 new reveals, I wonder if it means we will be getting the other 4 MW's soon.

Now how about them Sharkticons and Presser figures? lol

Scaleface
hehehehe. Stinger, I get the name. Bee sting... Rocky? As in the Stalone movie Cliffhanger? These guys look like Pretender Bumblebee's inner robot. I wonder if they would fit in his Pretender shell???



Hopefully this means the next wave of Mini-Warriors is shipping soon, as they are teasing a whole new wave.

BTW - Wasn't Stinger one of the unused names for one of Blaster's cassettes in the '86 movie? And Rocky was the name of a McAdams doorman. Both are TF names reused!

Now if they repainted Stinger into a not-Bug Bite, and Rocky into a metallic recolor, I would be VERY interested.
hardreturn
rocky, you portly sunofabitch, you're mine
rosewater
Oh sweet Jesus, let these be small like Rager and Spray! Please-o-please!
Bountyan
Screw that shit. Sticking with the 2006 classics mold.
The Crow
I hope they are the same size as Hench!
payton34
Pass. Easy pass, at that.

Rather see another "Art Feather" reshell for Cliffjumper, personally.
sodawilly
I like the looks of these! However, that being said.... give us a damn update on the sharkticon set and Presser!

I reallllly hope they tweak BBs head, other than that, loving these.
brr-icy
bee's face looks pretty bad
Trailbreaker77
Well these look OK at least better than the "Classics" version I have glad I didn't waste my money on that reshell of the classics version I have either.

Did that ever get released?
Hybrid Style
Bumblejumper/Bumper repaint coming in...3....2.....
OptimusTimelord
Chubby little fellas, but nice to see iGear doing them in the MW line nonetheless. And thank goodness they're the G1 chibi alt modes. They could do with longer legs though. Stinger comes off worst (that head!) but no doubt I'll be buying them anyway!
Scaleface
Why would you REPAINT them as Bumper? He's the same color. He's a remold.

Anyways, I would welcome a Goldbug, Bumper and Hubcap remold. Heck, give us Glyph, Tap-Out, Volks, and whoever else you can make if you make them cheap (no more than $30 if they are larger, $25 if they are smaller)

I'm surprised they went with Bumblebee. Isn't iGear still trying to sell their stocks of Bee01?

Demonss
I'd rather have wheeljack's Cliffjumper that they scrapped than that garbage..
Hybrid Style
Sorry, I didn't mean repaint. But I still thinker Bumper will be coming. Maybe it is this years TFcon exclusive?
Transbot90210
How can you compare a CJ made for the MP line to one made for the Miniwarrior line?
Scaleface
In my own little fannon, there is a place like Axiom Nexus, but with all third party toys. In that place all these alternate company versions of Cliffjumper stand around not trusting each other.

I'm totally the other way around, these penny racer chibli figures will fit in my collection perfectly. As much as I like the ambition of the CJ in the picture, I just don't see where that aesthetic would fit in my collection.
TigerBlade
Cliffjumper is bought if the size of Hench.....not feeling Bumblebee at all. I think the Artfeather one is better personally based off that pic.
Gauntlet101010
Eh, I'm good with Classics BB and GDO Cliffjumper. Sometimes it bugs me that BB is so large, but not enough to rebuy the character.
Hybrid Style
So does this mean there needs to be an upsized Spray and Rager?
Foster
Not feeling the faces on either.
javaco
they both look horrible in my opinion..
at least with some of the other mini warriors they were going for screen accuracy, but this time they did g1 alt mode accuracy then threw a bot mode in there.. which looks dumb to me. way to unproportional.

not for me one bit.
Robogeek28
Wow, disappointing reveals from IGear today IMO. First Wheelie looked awful, and now Bumblebee and Cliffjumper do as well. WTF happened IGear? You were doing so well with the minis, at least design wise.

Exactly this.

Huffer, Brawn and Gears look amazing
These look like crap...WTF???

Unfortunately, if there are no other alternatives by the time these come out I may be tempted.
Hybrid Style
These are just renders so the protos might be more refined.
megatroptimus
BB's face not the best, but I'm getting one anyway.

Hopefully a TAD smaller -NOT Spray/Rager size, just a half a head smaller... PLEASE!!

Ok, they need to get the current 4 out before teasing the next four....

Or maybe this means that the current 4 are coming out soon. One can hope.

I can compare it because I have a classics Cliffjumper that fits in perfectly with the miniwarrior line..
ON the other hand an awesome looking MP style cliffjumper would get my money.
This probably will not.

My statement was a simple statement of, "I'd rather spend my money on this than that."

Gotcha. I agree that it is going to be difficult justifying Stinger and Rocky due to Classics having a BB an CJ already. I'm doing so by collecting the MW line as one that I will incorperate with my Classics but I am still in for a complete MW line.

As for an MP CJ. I have zero doubts that TT will give us official minibots. He was on the scale sheet released with Sideswipe (well BB was) and to me that sheet is a blueprint not just a pretty pitcure.

But I get what you mean.
Megatronus27
These look pretty AWFUL. And yet I am going to buy the shxt out of them and LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...until Takara MPs them anyway.

I love me some S1 Minibots!
slugslinger2004
Absolutely hideous. I'm surprised at the love these are getting. Better than their Classics counterparts? No.

Igear has really dropped the ball with these latest 4 designs. Red Baron looks to be the only decent one.
dwong1207
I'm amazed they can give us an accurate Kup head but make BB look overweight :-P

So are the MP minibots going to be the same sze as MWs?
If so the choice is going to be easy.

Right? That head was spot.on. The only thing I can figure is that maybe there's a risk in designing these things to look too accurate. Maybe the head was lower risk because it was smaller and less expensive?

I just don't get most of the 3rd part stuff, it all looks so completely unlike the intended characters.

I don't know. When I did some very simple eye scaling, Hench comes pretty close and may be a tiny tiny bit too small. So because these guys look like their onscreen counterparts (most do anyway) I can see MANY people use them for an MP display.

Myself personally, I like the MW line intergrated into my Classics collection. I will buy BB and CJ but have no clue how they will fit in due to official versions existing.

I am also going to hold out for official TT MP minibots because even though they MAY be the same size I can picture Takara's versions being slightly more invovled. If I am wrong then I can take my MW's and move them to my MP display. ;P

Bumblebee's facesculpt looks a little weird and they're too boxy for my tastes, but I'm sure others will enjoy him. Aside from Veer, Red Baron seems to be the only other Minibot from iGear's upcoming lineup that I'm mildly interested in.

I'll stick with the Classics Bumblebee and GDO Cliffjumper molds for my CHUG display.
RayTheSun
I like how dumpy and Strong Sad-esque the yellow guy is. That's what I think every Bumblebee should be like, guy's just such a lame duck of a character.
Mechafire
Those look awful.
Paarthurnax
Lame, pathetic waste of time & materials.


Now that they made Bumblebee they need to make Bumblebee. And then Bumblebee. And don't forget about Bumblebee. And then we'll need a Bumblebee. And after that they should make Bumblebee. And then to round things out they should make Bumblebee. Followed by another Bumblebee. And we'll need Bumblebee. Then they can focus on a really rare character that we desperately need, BUMBLEBEE!!!! If they want to steal Hasbro's character they might as well go all out & do everything like Hasbro. Copy everything.
