Courtesy of Kapow Toys we bring you news of the next upgrade set from Beelzeboss, the company who previously produced the Devilhorns Upgrade set for Classics Cliffjumper. Now they plan on transforming your United Bumblebee into a Classics-verse Goldbug. The set dubbed "Growing Pains" will contain a new head and electoplated hand weapon. Take a look at the concept sketch below.

LOL, $#*%-Piece. That video is hilarious.

This is a great idea, and I am glad someone is putting it into production.

Think it's safe to say everyone saw this coming. Only makes sense for Beelzeboss to take advantage of United Bumblebee. Will probably pass on this though. Call me unrealistic but I'd love someone to make a Goldbug based on next years new VW Beetle.

I don't know, I don't think that mold suits Goldbug as much as it does Bumblebee, it's a little bit too stocky, though, it'll probably look really nice, and it'll probably be able to fit on the WFC Bumblebee. :P

This looks more promising than their last set. I may check into it but I'd like to see what Renderform's looks like first.

I never realized how "Bumblebee Prime" Goldbug's head looked… IDW should've gone that route, though I guess without the Matrix the leadership thing was really in name only.

This would be perfect for United Bumblebee.

Yup, me too.

Saves me the pain of doing the upgrade myself.

The last set was like $19 and change. This has a head and one handgun. So you're getting less this time and paying approximately ten more dollars? How lame. I'm sure I'll get a Goldbug of sorts but it won't be for that price.
:BOT:
::EDIT:: Pardon me, it was $22.95.

It is too expensive, how can you justify that price?. Even as an avid Bee & Bug collector You'd think I'd be the one who can Justify the price.... Sadly not - $30 for a head and a gun that doesn't even exist - adding a gun is a poor attempt to Justify the price. Get rid of the gun and lower the price to $10/15. Don't treat collectors as dumb cash cows.

I figured you'd be all over this. Guess you can wait for Venksta's version.

Thats what I'll be doing as well. Last time we talked he has this, a Hubcap, and CJ sets coming down the pipe.

I'm hopeful for a Hubcap upgrade, in fact I bought a clearanced RtS BB just in case.
