    There’s the magic square blaster, but unfortunately he’ll be a little small, as he’s ‘legends 0’. Mister moon blaster is legends + though I believe, although he has the toon head (the magic square one does too) and looks a little basic.

    And yeah, Goldbug is up there on my favourites list too!

    tks for the heads up. I might check out the IF 2 pack Blaster, but not sure if he'll fit for my taste.

    Oh yeah, forgot about that one, though I think he’s the smallest of the three.

    Yeah, it would be a heavy remold, but I liked the idea of BB being a classic VW bug and Goldbug being a new bug.

    Still holding out hope for a retail Goldbug with a hoodie, all gold body, etc. But you know what they say.....wish in one hand, shit in the other, see which one fills up first.

    Sucks that the closest Goldbug we have is one with a long torso and beer gut. Love that headsculpt though, it's perfect.

    Probably a dumb question, but do all copies of this figure come with all of the accessories pictured in the first post? I'm thinking about ordering him, but the retailers I'm looking at don't have the picture with all the accessories shown (and no mention of them in the item description).

    Maybe not. I know I didn't receive the bonus Ravage included with Bumblebee when I ordered from TFSource, but I did get the bonus tools with Ratchet when I ordered from.

    Do we know yet if he's got the same 'open' back as bee, or the new covered back like cliffjumper and hubcap?

    Having used tf-direct plenty of times, I can assure you they are great. They also use very fast shipping.
