That s not grey. It is purple. The spotlights or camera flash is desaturating it.
MFT Sharkticon random lottery style?
I know the gray is up to Sunbow snuff, but I've always loved the matching color schemes of the toys. I might paint one of my three Bombshells to have gray chest so he's like the leader one. I'm not sure yet.
I'm anxious to see what kinda repaints they do with these.
I just realized that their "cockpits" aren't painted, but moulded pieces. Definitely expect a repaint with transparent amber cockpits.
They also look like they open. Dianaut integration?
A KO company that so far has produced three items, all KOs of New Age's Bumblebee and variants. If you want an NA Bumblebee these days, that's generally what you'll be buying (as actual NA ones have long since sold out).
One of the reasons I liked Bad cube's insecticons, Bombshell color changed between modes. It was built into the transformation.
So sick of seeing the insecticons chests depicted in yellow instead of clear plastic. In 1985 there was no way to depict transparent glass in a cartoon. Does that mean the toys have to be dumbed down to match outdated animation techniques ?
Don't worry. The yellow pieces are separate, so you're all but guaranteed to get transparent chest ones.
No. It is most certainly grey. The same lighting is hitting a similar bombshell lower in the picture, and that one is purple.
there shouldn't be this much discussion of the grey bombshell. it is clearly just an unpainted proto that got used for the pics.
This is great news! I was so close to getting the Reformatted versions for my Legends collection and just living with their super sized scale.
Keep in mind you have to spend $500 to break even.
Yeah, I know, right? Why do they keep making toys to be accurate to that lousy cartoon?!! I’m still butthurt that their Ratchet and Ironhide have actual heads like in that poorly-animated 80s Sunbow garbage, when they obviously should have gone with flat stickers like the original toys had.
You know what? I should have realised what Newage were up to when they made a Cosmos that didn’t have conjoined feet like the original toy! Instead they gave him individually articulated ankles that made him look like that awful cartoon!
That’s it! Time to ditch Newage for good! Who’s with me?!
TFSource has another shipment Bumblebees for this month. It looks like the yellow might be a little darker, but that might just be the lighting.
Agreed but I'm not going to wait and hope for clear chested Insecticons. However, I've decided to only buy one set rather than get extras for troop building. If they do a set with clear chests later - and that seems likely given that they're doing Jazz with clear windows now - then I'll get a set of those as well and they'll be my main Insecticons while the old opaque chest ones will be my troops.
Barrage, the rhinoceros beetle, Venom the cicada, Chop Shop the stag beetle, Ransack the grasshopper
I will skip these but if and when the deluxe Insecticons come out they will be mine!
Newage have posted on weibo that will be 3 repaints version of the sets, purple Bombshell set, Grey Bombshell set and Diaclone repaint set.
Had to be done.
And they're going to be awesome. I'm so hyped for mini robo-bugs.
