    Seem to have colors inspired by Animated Elite Guard Bumblebee with red eyes added to make him evil, and SG Zombie Cliffjumper from Dungeons and Dinobots.

    Meh.
    They got groovy colors, but they're not really important characters in the fiction and I don't like the feet on this mold.
    I'll see how the whole VAT thing plays out.
    If the extra cost for importing is negligable I might get these, but they are not a priority for my SG collection.

    I find weird that they didn't just us Bugbite as SG Bee since that pallet would have been used in Animated for SG Bee

    Because Shattered Glass Bug Bite exists too?

    Animated SG didn't follow G1 SG colors.

    Personally I plan to buy it to reward them for doing a character that had no toy. We don't need a 10th purple Prime or black Rodimus. Evil Blue Cliffjumper? Bring it on!

    I'd be perfectly happy with Shattered Glass recolors of every one of their molds. Stepper, Ricochet, Prowl, Straxus, Shockwave, Dirge, etc.

    Me too. Someone in the NA Devy thread said they're donating SG Devastator too and I'm pretty damn excited!

    Well, that and there are actually four new colors they showed off today besides these two SG colorings, they're also doing Bugbite and Bumper:

    NEWAGE H25 HERBIE (Bumblebee 2.0) and N25 Cliffjumper

    But yeah, the black and gold isn't just the SG animated pallet, its also SG Goldbug, which Hasbro is releasing:

    It's not SG Goldbug, because it has a Bumblebee head. It's young drifter Bumblebee mentioned in the SG bios.

    --

    Goldbug was once a young Cybertronian drifter known as Bumblebee. He survived on the streets of Polyhex with no real purpose. Over time, he became skilled at sneaking around, stealing, eavesdropping and blackmailing. When he heard of a new cause being led by Optimus Prime, he eagerly joined the Autobots n hopes of finding a place to belong and where his unsavory activities would be tolerated. When the war began, Bumblebee showed extreme bravery in battle and often sought ways to be noticed by command. In time, he worked his way up the ranks of the Autobots and when the Autobot Seeker Drench was destroyed, Bumblebee was offered an upgraded form and a new identity as Goldbug, to take his place. Although he holds a high position in the Autobot hierarchy, he is paranoid that someone will one day try to betray him and take his place as he has done to so many others in the past.

    PS - Also, that isn't Bumper, it's Hubcap!

    It only took 13 years from evil blue Cliffjumper appearing in fiction until he got a toy!

    Oh, I wasn't saying this figure was SG Goldbug, I was merely stating the black and gold color wasn't limited to SG Animated.

    But yeah, I was writing too fast and got Bumper and Hubcap mixed up in my head.

    Honestly, I'm seriously considering selling all my New Age bots except for Shattered Glass. I love almost everything they do but it's too much to be completionist with while I also have a full MP collection. Doing only Shattered Glass puts a nice limit on it.

    I know. And New Age is expensive enough as it is.

    It’s awesome that New Age is so open to milking these molds.
    I hope we still get a Nacelle from Thrust and an SG Dirge.
    And more toy decoes are always appreciated.

    Bugbite and Hubcap also up for pre-order. These are great head sculpts for how tiny these things are.
