The Planet Iacon facebook page has posted a prototype image of what appears to be a Cybertronian Cliffjumper or Bumblebee. They aren't sure if it's an upcoming third-part offering or a custom, check him out below.

He sends out more of a mecha vibe than a Tansformer. Like he's a grunt Mech from some anime I haven't seem. :-?

I appreciate the effort that goes into something like this but it doesn't interest me. I wish third party's would focus on making Characters we don't already have.

Interesting. Robot mode looks nice. The dude looks deluxe class. Unless this is a surprise HasTak they actually managed to not talk about, I think we can kiss $30 goodbye. I hope it's a big name so I can order one. It's not too on the nose if Hasbro never intended to develope one, right?

You mean the WFC version? Unless I'm mistaken, this would be the G1 cybertronian mode. The elongated saucer thing?

Yes! If this turns out to be a bigger version of the Episode 1 Bumblebee, then I'm all over it. Follow it up with an episode one Wheeljack and Seekers, and my dreams will have come true.

Kinda glad this isn't something I want. I'm getting tired of paying $100 per figure.

Not that this doesn't look great. But there's just too much that I want out there between the new MPs ALONE.

Yeah HasTak aren't the only ones that make stupid ass decisions on what figures to produce, clearly 3rd Party groups have their share of brain-farts.

Above, it was mentioned that this may not be the WFC Bumblebee, but it may represent the first toy with Bumblebee's More than Meets the Eye Part 1 mode. If this is the case my feelings on this figure change greatly.

WOW, way to attack the 3rd party manufacturers without so much as having a shred of evidence. Did it occur to any of you to look past the robot and check out the background. That's a table full of customs behind that bot. This figure was probably made for the enjoyment of the customizer or maybe at the request of a private party as a commissioned piece. If this, in fact, is the case (and I'd lay money it probably is) then this person has done one damn fine job. :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Now for all those of you who think this is a 3rd party piece bound for mass release and who decided to dump all over it...I'm impressed by your arrogance but contrary to popular belief you are not the center of the universe and are likely not the intended target purchaser for this figure so your rude comments were utterly selfish and pointless. :BANG_HEAD:

Um, I think its fantastic if they're aiming for a War Within design. WFC Bee and Cliff are kinda dumb looking to me, with their big fat bellies and all that. I love my Classics Bee, but I'm not paying 90 bucks for Cliffjumper, so if this is an alternative that looks good, then bingo, take my money please. :BOT:

I saw a 'War Within' Optimus Prime a while ago in the Titanium series.

Prototype for this 'War Within' Bumblebee looks pretty cool, though it'd be better without the flap behind the head!
Then again, this is the prototype, so hopefully that problem will be resolved if this figure gets released!

Well the Titanium War Within figures are kind of lacking. Of the several I've picked up the only one I really liked and have kept is Sun Storm. The rest, i.e. Prime, were kind of rubbish.

I think it looks pretty amazing. Really well-sculpted. Whether it's a custom or a third party product, it's really great work, but if it's a third party product, I don't need it.

In fairness, though, it wouldn't be $100 if it were made by Hasbro.

Not that I dumped on it, but ...

That's a fair point. As much as I would want to pick this up, I'm not spending more than 30 bucks. My wallet's kinda getting sick of me kicking it in the b*lls with 100+$ purchases from 3rd party companies. (But that's not saying I'm going to stop...lol).

I really don't think it would be $100 (assuming this is even coming). We've been seeing it a lot, but there's been small voyager or better, two-packs (albeit a little high for 3rd party scouts), and another Arcee because every damn Arcee has been 100+.

Pretty good looking. Always love designs from war within, hell the best thing a fan company could do for me is do some justice to Optimus from War Within, which FP is coming comfortably close to. But we already have a bazillion BBs on the market. What's the point in this?

Edit: I just noticed that the hips could be flipped the other way around judging by the joint they're on. Since when did fan companies start mis-transforming their own stuff?

I hope it's a 3rd party product. As I've said before, I would love to have a G1/MTMTE/WW Cybertronian Bumblebee. This looks nice, even if it is just a custom.

You want a War Within Optimus Prime? At least you already have the option of a WW OP made by Hasbro. The point is that fans want a WW/Cybertronian Bumblebee, and Hasbro isn't likely to tackle it. And they certainly won't touch a Volkswagen version. So G1 Bumblebee fans can only hope for 3rd parties to offer these versions, and therefore those versions are obviously the best way for a 3rd party to take advantage of a fan-favorite, money-making character.
