Yup, upscaled legends/Legion figure... couple months now in discussions?
New heads and torsos than the ones that came out in 2015.

I ordered one, out of curiosity.
were there any VW Bumblebees that were oversized that aren't absolutely huge?
Thinking of getting one to be Gobots Bugbite.
My APC Evil Voice Prime Soundwave is en route. Super excited for this guy!
Available from other sellers, but at the time Lensple Robot Store was the best price I could find.

I can't thank you enough for posting this. Seeing the possibilities for this figure really sparked something in me.
I finished a few other things over the weekend and started mapping out sizes of surfaces and setting up template files. I didn't want to wholesale ripoff this one, so tonight I took to the sketchpad and started working on designs. I've drawn inspiration from the custom shown, IDW art, and the details on TFC Iron Will.
I haven't felt this passionate about a creative endeavor in a LOOOOOOONG time!
I'm so glad I could help ! To be fair all I did was point to it. Can't wait to see your progress!
Are you doing a custom decal sheet, or are we talking additional modifications as well?
I believe its a decal set.
I'm still staring at that custom, trying to figure out how much of it is just paint, or if there's actually any alteration made to the base figure. It's pretty slick.
It's beautiful! If @The Happenin Rhinoceros can give some decals for the shoulders, shins , and crotch area i'd be happy. Quite frankly I am really surprised nobody thought to do this till now. Sure there was Reprolabel stuff but that just mimicked the toy stickers which quite frankly looked out of place.
You have all these large smooth flat surfaces to work with. Slap a decal on here and there and you now gain a level of surface detail.

Super bummed that I bought this version a DAY before the metallic version was announced
Let us know when you get it. I'm holding off until I hear if it's better than the atrocious Angel Engine (Arcee) I picked up a while back. That thing was a train wreck.
I got my Evil Voice. It's much better than Angel Engine. It's oversized compared to the original and does not have awful metallic paint that flakes off when you look at it. I'd have been very happy to pay only $30 for it.
Edit: I just saw the rumor about a voyager Prime Soundwave being released next year by Hasbro. Prime Arcee, Knockout, and Bulkhead are also rumored. Between that and the recent reissue of Breakdown, APC is going to have to dig deeper for possible releases. Someone showed an enhanced design for an Airachnid, so we may see something come from that soon.
That's good to hear. I skipped on Prime, but bought the APC Megatron and absolutely loved it. Solid, nice joints and the plastic feels pretty great with a beautiful silver sheen. I'm not sure what happened with Arcee, but I got this floppy little ragdoll thing with the awful flaky paint issues you mentioned. It really felt like they neglected to put any kind of clear coat on it after the blue candy coat. And the tolerances were so far off on the ball joints I doubt any amount of clear acrylic coating would have helped it.
I hope Hasbro can put out a better Prime Arcee since that show's version of her is absolutely one of my favorite TFs. Right now I've got the R.E.D. figure on my shelf and hate that it's ten times more acceptable to me than the Angel Engine was, lol
