    As shared from FB in the Cliffjumper thread (thought it deserved it's own thread). Maybe this one will have real world livery?

    Well that's one way to make a name for yourself. Very interesting.

    Difficult to say - I don't see a whale tail? Could be an early prototype?

    It would be funny if it was another Bumblebee bot with a different shell and head.

    Does have the whale tail - the Ace 06 is just by one side of it.

    Sharpened Ace.jpg

    Sharpened and brightened. Back does look a tad odd, but clearly it's still very early going. Will keep an eye on it. :)

    Yeah noticed the same. Looks more like the flat spoiler of a standard 911 but hard to see and early days.

    If they have indeed improved their design process, this could be interesting. Their previous offerings didn't blow me away though.

    Watch this be a datsun re-shell, but with worse bot mode proportions.

    ...I haven't decided if I'm kidding yet.

    Hopefully they'll ditch the display case and stand and light-up gimmicks, and price this one a bit more acceptably?
    Doesn't even need die-cast, if that will help lower the cost.

    Obviously this "announcement" is way earlier in the production cycle than CJ's was when we got it, so it will be interesting to see how quickly they get from this state to release.

    This would be interesting. I don't really want to fault them to much on cliffjumper. I think they just made too many compromises between using the MP Bee transformation and trying to get a realistic car mode. The room for proportions just wasn't there. And as for head sculpts, well I love fanstoys so that would slightly hypocritical if the rest was great. I look forward to their first original design.

    I'm rooting for them.

    Hopefully they have indeed learned from their first release.
