    It looks good enough to me IMO, a classic boxy 80s Transformer from the Turtle Van.

    It'd be nice to try to stick weapons on the vehicle, similar to the 2016 Turtle Truck.

    ... I couldn't resist:

    7-Eleven
    Animorphs
    Back to the Future
    BAPE
    Bearbrick
    Burger King
    Chevrolet
    Disney
    Ghostbusters
    G.I. Joe
    J. Balvin
    Jurassic Park
    Marvel
    Mr. Potato Head
    My Little Pony
    Neon Genesis Evangelion
    Pepsi
    Sega
    Sony
    Star Wars
    Stranger Things
    Street Fighter
    Target
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    Tonka
    Top Gun
    Toyota
    ToysЯUs
    Universal Monsters
    Valvoline
    Xiaomi

    Probably there's a distinction between a crossover and simple licensing, and several of those listed are Hasbro's own properties, but I'm going to ignore that because it makes a more impressive list. ;)

    Wow! Haha, that is quite the list. Yeah, Transformers has really gone nuts with the crossovers lately as well.

    One more you don’t have on there is Star Trek.

    Huh, didn't know about that one.

    Guess I could also add Knight Rider to the list now.

    Yeah, it was an IDW comic series. :) 

    Good call, Knight Rider is coming up. Looking forward to that one.

    I'm hazy on who the Burger King Transformer is? They had kids meal toys but McDonald's also did, going back to G1, which is where I think Glyph comes from.

    Ha, now it’s my turn to say I didn’t know that existed!

    I thought Glyph was from an early BotCon? She and Tap Out and Rook were repaints of the minibot keychains. But maybe she was inspired by a kids’ meal toy? Now I really want to know!

    Can add Lego and Hotwheels to the list.

    Another goofy crossover, Konami DreamMix. A smash type game with characters like Solid Snake and Simon Belmont.

    Looking into it a little more, there were these odd non-tranforming minibot molds that McDonalds apparently only released for a trial period in St. Louis in 1985(?). Here’s a review of some of them. While I think that Glyph’s colors were likely inspired more by the dark blue Mexican Bumblebee, there is a blue Bumblebee repaint amongst those canceled Happy Meal toys that could pass for a proto-Glyph.

    Actually it’s kinda wild, in that lineup of random colors these toys used, you can spot ones that could pass as not only Glyph but Tap-Out, SG Bumbleebee, and Wasp. And now I want a black Bumblebee with hot pink highlights. :)
