Greetings Seibertronians! Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, Thundertron, we've learned that YouTube toy reviewer, Kremzeek Reviews has uploaded a video review of the forthcoming Transformers Generations Selects Deluxe Class Bug Bite!

This toy is a character that started life out as a Go-Bot (the once rival toyline and cartoon that challenged Transformers in the 1980s), the character was revived in Transformers as an E-Hobby exclusive redeco of G1 Bumblebee. FunPub would then redeco Classics Bumblebee for their Classics Bug Bite that was part of their Games of Deception 2007 BotCon set.

This version of the character is a redeco of Transformers Earthrise Deluxe Class Cliffjumper, but using Bumblebee's head.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:



What do you think of this character? Have you preordered your copy of Bug Bite? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

It's hard to say, because I had bundled him in my shopping cart with Greasepit and Exhaust, so my order reads as "partially" fulfilled. Rotorstorm, however, is out for delivery today, so I should have him by the time I get home later tonight. :)


Just go to your orders page, there will be 2 tells that should confirm it is Hubcap. I also ordered him with Greasepit and Exhaust and that order indicated "Partially Paid" until this morning, now it simply says "Paid". The other tell is looking at that order, the option to cancel a specific figure on the order will disappear once they charge you. Hubcap should have no option to cancel anymore.

Bugbite looks cool, but if I get him he'll be getting in the airbrush booth for some Botcon styled tacky tribal tattoos. He just looks wrong without them! Wrong I say!

So the faction that Bug Bite belongs to why now? Based on the figures (Classics and G1 repaints) we've had and even in the comics shown we see the :CON: symbol. Now I clearly don't know the lore involved so if someone would care to educate me that would be great.

Needless to say I will still brand both Bug Bite and Exhaust as :CON: but that's just me...'nuff said on that! ;)^ :VEHI:

Hasbro probably just wanted to reimagine him as a Mercenary since the original Bug Bite wasn't even originally a Decepticon to begin with; he was a Renegade, one of the bad guys from Tonka's GoBots toyline.

He's not even a Bumblebee repaint so I'd have to give him an autobot symbol and have him as Bumper. If they do treads it would be the first two mercs to be in the same company so the merc symbol wouldn't bother me unlike on the other unaffiliated mercs (but only if they had used a bee redeco).

So do you think HasTak will go down the Seekers route with this (and the eventual BB) mold?

Bumblejumper, Bumper, Volks, Glyph et al?

Most likely I guess. It has already begun.

Maybe that is the real ethos behind the Selects line? To reproduce every single redeco HasTak have ever thought of. Since not every mold is ever going to see the light of day again, regardless of line IE Browning and Kiloton.

With Exhaust and the whole Mercenary faction, I created a Mercenary shelf, with Exhaust and Doubledealer starring there. Bugbite will join the shelf when he arrives

Speaking of Mercs, the orange Shadow Raider would work very well I think for a G1 Merc shelf, with Lockdown using a different mold like the ROTF mold it would make Shadow Raider more distinct.

Takara's Volcanicus is now available for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse

Well I guess the one good thing is it is the same Price as God Neptune (I thought they would charge a bit more with the accessories). I know every TT selects has had a "order by" date to create a sense of high demand, which is probably true of all of them, but this one. I'm actually going to wait until it comes in stock. If they have any, I'll get one, if not, no big deal, I already have Volcanicus.

Order by 10/12/2020, so you'll have to make your choice by then, or hope for the best once he comes in stock.

Easy pass for me. Maybe I'll consider him about a year from now if BBTS has some leftover they clearance, but at full price, that is a big nope for me.

actually what meant was... even though other TT Selects had an "order by" date, when they actually came in stock next March/April (taking into account the inevitable delay), there were a few extra that could just be ordered at that time. This was the case with each pair of seacons (though they sold out quickly). If they happen to have any extra Volcanicus' when they arrive, I'll order, if not, no big deal. God Neptune may be a good indicator of sorts. I'm glad I pre-ordered, but I'll be curious to see if they have any that can be purchased at time of arrival.

The reviews just keep on coming today! Thanks to Youtube reviewer PrimeVsPrime, we get a nice look at the upcoming Generations Selects Rotorstorm figure! A remold and recolor of the Siege Spinister figure, Rotorstorm is a Selects figure which is only the second Rotorstorm toy released- his first was as part of the G1 line, but was only released in Europe. His only major role in fiction so far was as one of the Wreckers in the 2005-2018 IDW continuity.

PrimeVsPrime gives us a thorough look at Rotostorm's redeco and new, comic accurate head, as well as some nice comparison shots with Spinister.



Rotorstorm has already begun shipping from Hasbro Pulse, though other online retailers may not have their stock in just yet. Let us know if you'll be picking up this figure, as well as what you think of the review, and keep your optics tuned to Seibertron!

I think it is because primevsprime's video is the first one that the news staff got directly.

I had Rotorstorm for the last couple months and asked if y’all needed in-hand pics or a video review and was told y’all were good... :???:

I’m not mad or anything, I’m just.... confused?

It's funny because exactly one one prior to that review, Baltmatrix reviewed the figure, I'm surprised no one picked up on it.
