Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Cover Image

Colombo Motor Show 2015 was held in Sri Lanka yesterday and it featured a couple of Transformers related items for the first time in the country’s history (Transformers movie franchise has been increasingly popular in the region during the last few years).

But we are not going to talk about the Chevrolet Camaro that was there. No, this article is about the new Bajaj Pulsar RS200 bike manufactured in India. KSI’s Pagani Huayra isn’t the only robot that is inspired by Bumblebee it seems. This 200CC engine bike which just launched few weeks ago, is designed after the Transformers: Age Of Extinction Concept Camaro Bumblebee. The front view of the bike features the face of the Autobot with the body color scheme and stripes from the Chevrolet Camaro. If you want you can also choose the red Stinger version inspired by the Pagani Huayra.

Much more powerful version titled SS400 will launch next year with a better 375CC Engine.

RS200 is priced at US$ 2000 while the upcoming SS400 is rumored to be priced at US$ 3000.

Platinum Dinobots Giftset

Via Alucard Lee on Weibo, we have a look at the long-rumored Platinum Edition Dinobots set. First mentioned back at the Australian Toy Fair 2015 in March, it looks like those hoping for a Trypticon-style shock reissue set are in for a Trypticon-sized disappointment.

The leaked image from Alucard Lee shows a set very similar to the SDCC 2014 exclusive Dinobots set, with the differences this time being that the set comes in a regular Platinum edition box, and includes all five Dinobots. Essentially, what you are getting in this set are the Generation 1 inspired decos of Age of Extinction Grimlock, Snarl, Slug, Strafe, and Slog. There’s a convenience in that you are getting them all in the same box, and there might be some deco tweaks (we’re not seeing the gold on Snarl), but ultimately, this is the same set many of us will already have got last year.

autobot bugatti veyron grand sport vitesse4

We all know the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse as Drift from Transformers: Age Of Extinction. But this news isn’t about the fictional character. Apparently, a Transformers themed Veyron was spotted being shipped to Los Angeles.

GT Spirit stated:

“The entire front end is painted in two shades of light blue and features a subtle Autobot insignia stretching across it. The doors also feature the two-tone blue design while the lighter of the two blues then adorns the rear wheel arches, air intakes and rear decklid. Gloss black side skirts, rear bumper and the lower half of the front bumper are also present. 

Inside, the Transformers theme continues with a prominent Autobot logo having pride of place between the two seats. The seats themselves are finished in bright blue and dark blue leather and include ‘Daniel’ stitched on the headrests which is presumably the owner’s name.”

Speaking of the owner’s name, it is also Transformers related. According to the headrest, the name is Daniel.

We’ve mirrored the images of the car with this news post.

 

Transformers Human Alliance Special 005

Do you remember the fun, though very repetitive, Transformers: Human Alliance arcade game by SEGA? Well, they’re updating it for Japanese arcades and turning it into a crazy gyroscope infused light gun adventure. Reported on by Arcade Heroes (via Kotaku), the Transformers: Human Alliance Special arcade game is making its debut at Tokyo Joypolis. The official Toykyo Joypolis Twitter account has even uploaded some photos and a video.
