Looks fantastic, not sure if i dig the wheelgun though. Rather have a pistol that's stored underneath the vehicle or inside the tire but hey....sculpt looks brilliant so just a minor complaint.

If they do release the others i'll skip Goldbug as i just got the Renderform Gold Scout kit and that will look fantastic when i put that on my United Bee.

Btw i agree with what others said, if they really want to do the others they should definately not skip Wideload.

Perhaps these figures will have the pull-back engine feature?

Only if they're bricks, for G1 accuracy! :lol: ;)

But yeah, this guy looks great. Who's making it and possibly the others?
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I am using a Classics Hound with a custom head as Rollbar right now. I'd love to have this guy. I have customs of all of the others as well using BB and Tracks/Wheeljack molds, and still waiting for my Maketoy Dump Truck to customize as Wide Load.

They NEED to make a Wideload. Him and Goldbug were the only Throttlebots I bought as a kid. I'll be sure to get them all this time around.

I absolutely love this figure. From the transformation, the detail, size, and to the shiny paint job. Wow, I am impreseed that they are able to make a cool looking figure out of a crappy Throttlebot. And has given me new respect for Rollbar.

Now that's what I'm talking about! Rollbar was the second Throttlebot I got as a youngster and he was my favorite as well. I don't know why. This figure looks brilliant. Beelzeboss had better do something amazing with their Throttlebots to best this design.

Only slight complaint is that those bumps on his chest/roof will make it difficult to place an Autobot insignia on there.

Looking at the silhouette, it appears Goldbug will be based on the new VW Beetle which is exactly how it should be.

Glad to finally get some news about this guy. Its been so long I was started to get worried. Regardless... my bank account is getting sore from the pounding these 3rd parties are putting it through. :-(

Awesome. Pricey, but awesome. The colour is a bit off from the original Rollbar. Could do with a bit more green.

It's perhaps a daft thing to complain about but he's almost too good looking. He wouldn't look out of place with some Alternator figures.

Ya know, from the silhouette we got from Toyworld pertaining their Not-Throttlebots we might be getting a new Goldbug from them since we don't see Wideload on there.

I like that figure. Wow.

I don't like the price. I'm sorry, no dice. $100.00 for Hegemon? Worth it. You get a LOT for that tag. This guy? Meh. $50.00 perhaps.

I do like how it transforms. That's really nice how the kibble all folds down nice and neat to make it as clean as possible. I don't like the color. I can't tell if it's painted, or it's gold plastic. If it's the latter, then definitely not. I mean, Hasbro's had a rather difficult time getting rid of GPS, I can't imagine a 3rd partier could magically fix it.

Hasbro's pretty much stopped it, but there's always a few figures that still get hit with it.

Looks nice, not $70 nice. Would rather get the Perfect Effect RC for a little more. I need her more than a Throttlebot.

If this ever goes on sale, I'll pick him up though.

This color is 10x better than the drab olive green. I really like the mold and transformation, but it way too expensive. $50 seems more reasonable.
