    Hell yeah, can’t wait for the Skywarp repaint ( if it happens )
    The mold itself looks awesome

    Looks amazing, hope they do all of the bumblebee seekers!!! My only complaint is they’ve gone with a dark grey cockpit in bot mode unlike what we saw in the film

    edit: taking another look, it appears the light grey cockpit was only present in concept art, so this guy is pretty much perfect.

    Just pre ordered this. Put my deposit down on ShowZ. Can’t lie would love to see them do an Acid Storm repaint maybe with a detachable cone head

    Same!

    How many inches tall do you think that puts it at? What scale are the Transcraft bots?

    I don't know how I've been oblivious to this figure until now :confused: 

    Still catching up on the thread but I couldn't help but notice several things in the comparison shot with TransCraft Bee...
    img-162238050365342a2948d6ba53c0b4a24e00029ed8a20.jpg

    The Bumblebee in that pic appears to be the same "clean deco" prototype that we saw last year, in front of the same laptop:
    img-b40d803a48a950d0098bc6fc3de9c2f8.jpg

    So... Is this an indication that CyberFactory and TransCraft are the same company, or are the pics posted by someone who just happens to have access to these prototypes?

    TransCraft did release that silhouette picture a year or two ago with the Bumblebee movie cast including Starscream, so this could be it?

    *Edit*
    They also have suspiciously similar styled "official" pics:

    It just happened that the photographer for both TC and CF are from the same person, hence the same style of pose you see there

    I would say based on the comparison of BB and Starscream, it sama to scale better with MA Blitzwing rather than ZT

    Yeah, I like the Bay Starscream but would be interested in this mold as another character...

    If I am not mistaken this is not a finalized look for Starscream. Even in Studio Series the packaging and the figure itself is not consistent.
