    SG Bugbite is an interesting idea. He's a natural Transformer but his universe was destroyed and now he along with a few other survivors must invade the gobots looking for the cause.

    might also just come down to no bad guys too in their agreement with VW as fenrys pointed out to me.

    I was hoping for a straight Bumblebee repaint but I still really like this! I guess I'll be getting the reprolabels for this guy

    since I already have the generations GDO Cliffjumper fig. Just give me a reason to get the earthrise cliff mold. I plan on giving exhaust as well.

    But that's for Cliffjumper's mold, do we know if it's compatible with the Bumblebee retool yet?

    You can't make the argument that Bugbite specifically needs to be a VW because he "has historically been" one then suggest it's acceptable to use someone else who also "has historically been" a VW.

    I'm even laughing at the idea they shouldn't make a new version of someone if it isn't 100% accurate. Like, if that were the case I'd never have gotten a new Getaway during Titans and would likely *still* be waiting on the Seacons.

    The old saying is "Perfect is the enemy of good." And yet here we are.

    It's a name. You'll be okay.

    Just saying. Granted, I said I wanted him as the VW too, but that was more for desiring variety than anything.

    Given they appear to share the same skeleton, I'd imagine it would work just as well

    I kind of like this "tricked-out Fast and Furious" version. I wish WFC Bugbite had some purple tats too.

    Same here. G2 is the dark days for me, lol. I WILL take new characters though, just not interested in G2 versions of G1 characters.

    I mean, that mold is "bug-adjacent" in that it was a revamped/updated Bumblebee (but this was also a Botcon redeco, which, like Selects is working from what's available - and as of right now, their is a VW Bumblebee mold available. like folks have said, and I totally get, it's most likely a licensing thing where VW doesn't want their car repping a villain, but as I said, if that's the case, why not do one of the other historical Cliffjumper repaints instead of a disappointing off-model version of Bugbite

    I mean where was Springer, apeface, redwing, hotshot and the powerdashers, smokescreen, bluestreak? Getting a toy doesn’t confirm they’ll show up

    More people know about Go-bots than some random repaint of Cliffjumper that was only released in South America
