Generations 30th Anniversary Bumblebee Mold Test Images

IDWbumblebee1_zpsf43bf6ea

Via this eBay auction we have a look at the Generations Deluxe Bumblebee toy, being released as a part of the 30th anniversary sub-series and based on his appearance in the Mike Costa ongoing series. What you see here is a mold-test prototype – a pre-production figure in whatever plastic colors were available at the time to test the mold, the fit of parts, and so forth. While no indication of the final toy, it does give a bit of an idea of what the final toy is going to be like, with a glimpse of how certain parts of the transformation will function.

    Mold looks better here than in any other pic, though it's still not really my thing.

    Cool, but the fake chest and simple transformation are disappointing.

    I think he looks great in both modes. Sadly, I don't think I need another Bumblebee. The Classics one does it for me fine.


    -ZacWilliam, wondering if there's a good repurposing for him...l

    Looks cool, but I figured at this point they'd have figured out a way to not have the entire roof and hood of the car hanging off the back in bot mode.

    I like.

    Really hoping this bad boy gets retooled into Hot Rod somewhere down the line.

    Now let's see him with a new head and in this kind of color scheme as Cybertron Hot Shot.
