Hey, Rated-X, it looks like Beezleboss has been monitoring our conversation threads :lol:
I'm kidding, I'm sure these have been in the pipeline for months. I have to say though, I'm not too thrilled about having to paint multiple figures. Seems like alot of work for figures that Hasbro should be making for us anyway.

You cant bolt on the obvious white searchlights on the hood or extra vents on Chases doors. These are plain and clearly re-shells of the Bumblebee mold. I think that's a great idea !!! Once again who needs Hasbro ???


I hope its not a bolt on kit...take the Fansproject Cliffjumper kit from a few years ago, I hated that thing...it made the figure look so clunky, like the **** creation of a Tuner boy modifying his car that didn't know what he was doing...I love Fansproject stuff in general but thats the one thing they havn't been able to sell me on so far...plus its so freaking expensive on the secondary market...they can keep it. To me a throttlebot should be sleek, streamlined, and aerodynamic. So I hope its not a kit that you bolt onto the existing figures...it'll be interesting to see what they've got up their sleeve.

Patience....patience....a common neccesity in this hobby. :BOT:



I would be flattered if they came up with this idea because of us. However, I dont recommend trying to paint a Bumblebee. It is really a pain in the ass.

I hope these are car pieces you can put on a Classics BB, I've always wanted to take that mold apart.

I'd rather them to make 3rd parties Runabout and Runamuck. I think they'd work better as classics BB reshells than as Wheeljack retools ala TFCC. Plus, I don't really care for the Throttlebots.

Just for the record, El Duque edited the news post to state this after I highlighted said observation. I don't want folk thinking I was too ignorant to read the article before commenting.

Agreed. Although I do care about the Throttlebots as they were one of the few G1 groups I actually completed.

actually with goldbug being made from the chug bumblebee mold with the addition the growing pains kit i would rather them be shelled over that base mold. what i'm wondering is do they plan to do all of the throttlebots and if so how will they do wideload. i'm kinda hoping the do an oversized bb mold for it.

From what I've been told these will be full blown figures not upgrade kits.

That's interesting considering they're so similar to the Classics BB mold. I don't think I care about Throttlebots even slightly though. I'll stay tuned in. I'm curious to see how this pans out.

The teaser image below reveals concept art for Chase and Searchlight. Like their previous "Devil Horns" upgrade for Classics Cliffjumper and their forthcoming "Growing Pains" upgrade for United Bumblebee, these kits appear to be designed around the Classics Bumblebee mold. However, the only figures that come molded in the correct colors are Classics Cliffjumper and BotCon Bugbite.
