    saw a cool tf mug at newberry the other day but had to take a pic because on the autobot side, there was the bot pictured below and I was like "who the hell is that!?" Does anyone know who this odd looking autobot is?

    Ps sorry pic is sideways, it was taken on phone

    No idea, but he definetely wasn't in the cartoon so he's probably a made up character created only for this mug.

    A shame really, he looks kinda cool.

    Bingo, he's a new character they made up for some new licensed art. I think the first time we saw him was on the skateboards that Primitive Skateboards made.

    Primitive Skate x Transformers Limited Edition Foil Set (All 8 Decks) – Primitive Skateboarding

    Wallpapers – Primitive Skateboarding

    This guy thinks it's meant to be a reference to a popular camera from filming skate videos.

    That camera guy from the Primitive X Transformers collab skateboards

    He looks pretty cool!

    Probably just an original character, but still.

    He's like an autobot fusion of shockwave and reflector. I love it!

    I have that mug (and the Shockwave board)! It's good for doing drinks out of.

    Oh, hey, that's my Tumblr post.

    Here's a bit on VX Prime from Primitive's website

    I have no idea. He looks like a giant Autobot Reflector. I think someone goofed. I hope you got that mug, it's very cool.
