Jada, whom is known for their die cast vehicles is at it again with some new models coming out this year. The blog T-Hunted informs fans of the upcoming release in form of a picture which shows us which characters will be available. So far we know there are two versions of Optimus Prime in both his G1 and Bayverse truck modes. There appear to be two Bumblebee cars as well, one is a Volkswagen beetle, the other is a mystery. It might be an altmode from the upcoming film that we are not allowed to see just yet. We would like to hear your theories about the mystery car on the boards.

Wikipedia says the Original VW Bug was 160.6 inches long, so a 1:24 scale version will probably be in the area of 6-1/2 inches long.

Yes please on a quality die-cast/metal G1 style Optimus and Bumblebee alt-mode in that scale.
Don't get butthurt when you get called out for expressing closed/small/narrow minded opinions. Educate yourself and form a better opinion.

New Nano Die Cast G1 and Movie Transformers Toys from Jada Revealed

Postby william-james88 » Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:52 am

Figures.com has uploaded images of upcoming releases from toy manufacturer Jada, who specialises in die cast toys. We wrote yesterday about Jada releasing vehicles based on the Transformers G1 era, with Bumblebee and Optimu,s and now we have images of a new Nano line where G1 designs will also be present. This Nano line is part of their Hollywood Rides line which has die cast vehicles of all scales from various films and movie characters. The iamges below give us a glimpse at the different scales since we see a Peterbilt truck, Optimus Prime's form in the first live action movie, along with G1 Bumblebee and The Last Knight Optimus in the Nano packaging. The Nano packaging for the movie verse toys also includes the words "Studio Series". Seems like unification is the hot thing these days.

These pictures can give an idea of how big and small these toys are. The Peterbilt truck is 1:24 scale, and we have a video below showing you an example of a Jada Bumblebee that is 1:24 scale. So knowing that you can assume how big the Nano toys will be.

Will you be picking any of these up? Did you like the ones from The Last Knight? Let us know!

The G1 Bumblebee is disappointing since it uses a real VW Beetle instead of a tiny version of the figure as the basis. Probably a cop out and they'll use the same car with slightly different deco for the Bee Movie toy.

Does the Nano tag mean these will be smaller than the usual Matchbox size? Will we be getting Matchbox sized G1 vehicles?

No, Matchbox/hotwheels are 1:64 scale, these are 1:24 which is closer to alternator sized. Bee would be an oversized deluxe basically

You guys are talking about 2 different scales. I was hoping I would explain it correctly in the article but it seems there is still confusion. There are many different scales going on here.

Look at the image below.

The black car on the right is 1:24 scale (close to how big previous Leader Bumblebees have been in alt mode). And then on the left, in those super tiny boxes, are the Nano line, which also includes TFs, like the ones Chuck was mentioning. Based on that, I dont know if they are the same size or smaller than 1:64 scale

Gets confusing, doesn't it? But from what I can tell the packages are for 1:64, Hot Wheels-size pretty much. 1:64, 1:32 and 1:24 are pretty standard across the industry, but 1:72 (really tiny) is sometimes used for armored fighting vehicles like tanks.
