    While I've replaced Flipper by Herbie as my Bumblebee in my G1 Autobot display I'm still using Gremlin as my Goldbug. I like that Goldbug is taller than Bumblebee. Would also like this for my SG versions.

    Shattered Glass Ricochet could pass for a Knock Out, hmmmm.

    Would have preferred a Bumbper in place of Bug Bite. They could have used the Cliffjumper mold with a new head and without the spoiler.

    IGear, Toyworld and Impossible Toys all made a Glyph.

    Impossible Toys made a Tap-Out.

    They'll probably do a Glyph with a Goldbug I bet.

    Just going by characters who appeared in fiction, we still need: Goldbug, Bumper, Glyph, G2 Bumblebee, G2 Hubcap and Tap-Out.

    I just find the Shattered Glass thing so fascinating - that we can get such lovely looking repaints out of such bad fiction…

    Also, I thought it was the norm that Newage repaints went in the same thread as the ‘base’ release? For example, Black Ironhide didn’t get a separate thread, nor did Stepper, Shackwave, Soundblaster, Action Master Thundercracker and so on. Should this thread be merged with the main Cliff/Bee thread, as these repaints are being heavily discussed there also?

    arr we already have bugbite, how can u haz tapout and not glyph!
    as much as i support this idea i really wish they had done this the 1st bee scale, its a lot more in sync with brawn, beachcomber etc.

    i agree but id really like this argument handled before we get 75 different versions of bee and cliff

    i also think including animated in this topic muddies the waters a lot as it is the only media that gave some of the more obscure of the above some representation (while no one else did). A more 'conventional' approach would be according to comic appearance - so tapout, glyph hubcap, goldbug and bugbite. possibly black cliff. im not against it, just that in terms of which of these 3p should make id prefer some logic in priority of choice. I also really struggle to go all inn on these when it could easily have been done on the scale of their previous bee, as it automatically requires a seperate display from other new age minibots - these new ones prolyl best fit legion class scale which hasnt been a thing for a while ...

    Just give me Bumper, don't care who you pack him with as long as it's not Goldbug. I want my Goldbug bigger than Bumblebee so NA H01G Gremlin serves me right.

    If they decide to do Goldbug just do the whole Throttlebots. I can wait till they have done season 1, season 2, movie and season 3 bots.

    Yes, I am. Hope you didn't hurt yourself when you fell from your chair.

    And the only thing I can say is "we will see how far this rabbit hole goes, hope your along for the ride!"

    Three times over ten years. Though does a 3P really count towards that number?

    Well I\'m sold on the shattered glass set at least. Although I wish they had just taken that extra step and given bumblebee a new head.

    Really wish these weren't still 2 packs! They are way overpriced for what you get and I only wanted one. Same reason I skipped the previous pack as I only wanted Cliffjumper
