    I was thinking the Throttlebots would use that mold as well

    Except SS86 Hot Rod doesn't really look anything like the Cybertron Hot Shot mold and using that mold likely would prevent them from doing SG Hot Rod from it

    The spoilers, arm guns, and general leg shape are a lot closer than the Cliffjumper mold at least

    There's already an SG character who fits that mold better than Goldbug. His name is Shattered Glass Rodimus (Or they may call him Hot Rod since they got the trademark), and I'd rather have him with that mold than I would Goldbug.

    Looks good, but it looks like my United bumblebee with goldbug head is safe if this is recolored as mainline goldbug

    Damn it I'm going to buy it but I guess I'm going to start searching for anybody to pop that head onto. Maybe TFP shadow strike or night shadow Bumblebee. I feel like that head might be a little too big for that mold. Maybe the Earthrise runabout mold if I can find it at a reasonable price.

    this isn’t intended to be the original shattered glass characters. It’s a new take so they can use whatever molds they want worh a little homage here and there and that’s what this like all the others are

    A Gold Bug that isn't a bug. I might pass on this on principle.

    I am very disappointed by this. I’m a big fan of shattered glass, and the OG SG Goldbug was a holy grail for the longest time for me. I eventually got it and my god it has so much more character and liveliness than this. I think they really should’ve got for a different mold for this figure. Like the Wheeljack or Sunstreaker mold than Cliffs.

    Meh, not a particularly big fan, to be honest. Just too small for it to be SG Goldbug in my eyes. They should have gone with another mold, like Runabout/Runamuck.

    Sheesh..... This Shatter Glass shit is torcher! I mean when Bot-Con sold them it wasn't a big deal since I wasn't supporting it anyway. Hasbro however is clearly selling these because it's the cheapest way to resale recent WFC molds. It's not the same quality of the Injustice League or Marvel's Cancer-Verse. It's just repaints with a lame ass story to help make it legit.

    So however likes this, then good for them but for everyone else who's already half bored with what Kingdom is releasing and sick of waiting 7 or more months for SS86's line to finally release the 2nd wave, you'd think that hasbro would be aware of all the potential money their wasting.

    Every two pages we need to auto post your post. :) 
    Quick recap.
    G1 GB was a gold VW beetle rebuild of bumblebee that showed he was a more mature leader. In the comics, at least, he got blown up by GI Joe. (He got better.)
    SG GB is the evil leader of the seekers in a sports car mode.
    The cliffjumper mold is appropriate (if short) as he's a sports car, and when they do G1 GB eventually, they can use this head mold without changing anything making G1 GB more likely. Fits into a Throttlebot scale, too.
    Whether or not G1 GB is a beetle is up in the air due to likeness and licensing concerns. My guess is that they will probably just repaint this figure gold, but you never know.

    Yeah, this should've been a remold of Runamuck or Sunstreaker or something. SG Goldbug wasn't a tiny guy. Plus that mold's just too small for a deluxe.

    Nice colors, though.

    I was hoping for an ER Sunstreaker redeco since his altmode is a lot closer to SG Goldbug and it has a gun that can attach to the hood. This has a nice color layout, but I was hoping for a redeco that was slightly taller in robot mode. (I was also hoping for a mold with a smaller gun.) I already have Cliffjumper, Hubcap, and Bugbite, so I’m not sure if I want a fourth iteration of this mold yet.

    That's pretty neat!

    So...that means the rebooted SG line will cover two of the three Seekers already. I have a feeling we'll get Studio Series Hot Rod in his SG colors eventually, though for the final in the "comic book"/Pulse-exclusive series, I'd like another Decepticon. Maybe something crazy like Thundercracker. Hopefully they continue and even do SGs who never got actual toys (hello, SG Warpath! There's even a new toy out!)
