This year's New York Comic Con didn't happen as scheduled but the planned exclusive products for the event are still finding avenues for release. A Flame Toys model kit version of Bug Bite has been available to preorder since late last week as an exclusive on the Bluefin website. This is a recolor of their earlier Bumblebee kit, is set to ship out in about a month and will set you back $37 before shipping and tax. Like all Flame Toys kits, this version of Bug Bite does not transform.

The 16th entry of the Furai Model line, Bug Bite is here! Bug Bite was recently seen in the trailer for Transformers: War for Cybertron Earthrise on Netflix! The model is about 5.5 inches tall and 6 inches tall with the helicopter engine equipped. The model has over 50 movable joints that let's you set any pose easily. Model kit is made of hard plastic ABS & P and is good for experienced modelers and newcomers alike! This model is a NYCC Bluefin exclusive!

The preorder window for this kit is limited though a solid end time isn't posted, so it may be wise to act now if you're looking to add this kit to your collection.

I sense an incoming Masterpiece too. Yet again, I am no Jedi (nor Sith, unfortunately).

Forget the MP. They couldn't even make Select Bugbite into the VW Bee in the first place.

That actually makes sense, since there could have been licensing issues that they could only justify for a major character such as 'bee.

As much as I preferred the first MP 'bee, for the second one they barely homaged a real-world car, meaning they probably can simply repaint it without any additional fee, thus amortising all the engineering behind it on a new figure.

Yet, as stated before, I am no fortune-teller.

VW have a tight leash on their license. Even in super deformed "toon car" looks, the license still apply with the logo and everything.

You're probably right, I saw the VW logo on the box of MP-45. I didn't remember it well, since I skipped that particular toy.

I do like the nod to the Action Master Bumblebee figure.
