Toyworld.jp has uploaded new photos of what appear to be a 3rd party take on the G1 Throttlebot Rollbar. From the comparison shot, we can see he is the size of a large Scout or small Deluxe class figure. The silhouette shot indicates that there are more figures planned. Price and release date are TBD.

Staff Note: This is an unofficial product not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara/Tomy.

That looks interesting. Looks like they are intending to make the others too.

Hope so. I want a Goldbug thats not a Classics Bumblebee mold.
Roger Semerad
Really like the look of this guy. Verry clean and un-kibbled robot and alt modes. If this is from the Hegemon people, and thier qc is good, we may have yet another top quality 3rd party company.
Satomiblood
Almost looks like it could be re-purposed into a Brawn as well.
Kraken
That's got my attention. Very cool looking, I'll be keeping an eye on these.
TFao
Looks extremely promising! Can't wait for more info.
Jaicen
Ģ10 says they change the head for the final release.
Scaleface
If that picture at the bottom is silhouettes of other Throttlebot cars, then they don't have a Wideload, but they do have a Goldbug, as there are four cars... Chase, Freeway, Searchlight and Goldbug. Then again the silhouettes might not be toy accurate.
sh002
wow will probably get these. so they'll be like deluxe size? bonus if they have pull back action.
Josh
Ooooh I like that
jerminator
Man...for a newcomer on the scene, Toyworld is knocking 'em right out of the park! I LOVED the Throttlebots as a kid..and this looks like a very excellent update. Take my money NAO!!!!
Autobot Burnout
Want. Now.
WhiteMocha
Love it. I have a real soft spot for the Throttlebots, and this looks great. I love that glittery green.
Incepticon
Damn, that actually looks pretty slick. Love the clean design of both modes and the coloring.
AutoCon2076
Now THAT is a left-field homage right there. A friggin THROTTLEBOT?! Really? Hell, works for me! Bought on sight!
Gundamben831
Interesting, I like the design of the overall figure.
Maverick Hunter Christian
...man, and I don't even give a toss about Rollbar. That's awesome.
theestampede
looks quite nice.
Cecilia
It says page not found here u.u
DevilGalvatron
Bought. Always loved the idea of Bumblebee growing up and leading his own team. Goldbug, Rollbar and the crew must be mine.
wm10k
yeah i'm getting a page not found deal as well.

can someone mirror these?
wm10k






ok...i don't have the FP Not-Insecticons...so how big will these be?

Full Metal Hero Forum - NEW 3rd PARTY THROTTLEBOT ROLLBAR FIGURE

NEW 3rd PARTY THROTTLEBOT ROLLBAR FIGURE

Toyworld

One of them should work .

Oh he's Gorgeous !!!! (a must have)

Looks about the same size as Classics Bumblebee.

I wonder if the moulds are 2 repaints - they look like they might be - Perhaps they are worried it's not worth getting sued by Ferrari and Volkswagon.


They might be safe with the RS200 though.

This kind of design would work a treat for Cliffjumper too. or even for a pre-earth Bumblebee.

Everyone buys these please and then maybe we can beg them to do things like the Axcelerators or Triggercons/Triggerbots or even the Sparkabots too.
sh002
rollbar does have potential to be converted into brawn.

pull back action would be cool.
RedAlert Rescue
I think the only way you could make them pullback and go would be to put a fake 5th wheel in the underside gap at the back between the wheels.

Probably feasible to do as a scratch build accessory using something like the innards of a junker ChoroQ/PennyRacer toy.

I think the point is to replicate the character more than the gimic though.

Oh and this Picture really has made my day
DJW107PRIME
Thats hot.
Cecilia
Just lovely -^.^-

But I prefer they skip on pull back action, not something I would use.
wm10k
hmmmmm I like it, it looks really cute and awesome and all that.

but I want to see how they all scale with eachother (i know i know, scale and TFs?)
Victory Liner
So they are Taking a crack at the G1 Throttle Bots this should be interesting
Alteron_Sheng
...Oooo!! Now him I may get!!
Also, can't wait to see the other throttlebots as the image indicates we'll be getting them as well! ^_^
miscreant
I love it. I want it. I don't want to break my self imposed 'no third party rule'.

(That's not a moral thing, i just buy enough toys as it is)
Tiller
Eh. I need to see what this guy costs. Not thrilled with the design or anything. Back kibble isn't glamorous and the ankles lack any sort of movement too keep the feet stable on the ground. I expect more collector oriented traits in third party stuff if I have to shell out more money. It's cool someone went out of their way to grab things this obscure though. Props to that.
Blitz.
I'm quite game for these if they are the right price
SMOG
That's frickin' gorgeous.

Curious to see the price on these. If it's the Hegemon guys, then they're charging about $100 for a large Voyager. How much for a Deluxe, I wonder?

zmog
CodeXCDM
Interesting... looks nice.

While it wouldn't be surprising, it'd be unfortunate if the figures were all reshells of one another. (Ya know, because essentially all Throttlebots were the same transformation, but differed in their vehicle form.)
Heat Guy
Going to have to buy this, I got a Jeep.

If they all look this good, I couldn't care less if they were re-shells of the same basic structure. It looks fantastic.

(though I doubt it, because the logistics behind getting so many different car shells onto the same body is harder than it seems.)

zmog
mugen_prime
This looks extremely promising!
Lbsammills51
I really like the look of it. If they make the Throttlebots their thing, I'm totally on board with that.
BigRC83
Good size! I hope these will not be overpriced.
sh002
maybe they'll do deluxe minibots after throttlebots. i think i'm in the minority of people that would love some company to make more deluxe sized minibots.

Me too, but I hope they donīt do same bots that Igear is soing so we get more deluxe minibots
TCJJ
That... looks badass. I want one.
slugslinger2004
This looks amazing. Depending on the price, I'll definitely pick this up.
Roufuss
Where the hell is Wideload though

He was one of my favorites!

And I'm not seeing a Goldbug like shape out of any of those silhouettes either.
RedAlert Rescue
Oh me want some Skyscorchers now !!
BScorpinok75
Give me Wideload and I'm all in!
jbz
yeah man, a properly colored orange and blue Wideload would be sweet.
barrelks
I love it, bring on all the throttlebots. Need my G1 fill this year. Hopefully we will get a few Generations nuggets, but stuff like this is really starting to round out the classics collection.
