Greetings Seibertronians! Today we have new galleries to share with you, created by site owner, Seibertron, and feature two of Flame Toys recent releases, Furai Bumblebee and Thundercracker.

Flame Toys hold an official licence from Hasbro/Takara Tomy to be able to produce these highly detailed plastic model kits. They are highly posable but not transformable, and often feature designs straight from the comics.

First up, is Furai Bumblebee, armed with a pistol, his trusty hammer and a helicopter back-pack, enabling him to take the fight to the skies.

Really loving that Thundercracker kit. Bumblebee looks nice too but seems a bit too big for my taste.

Almost all of my shots are taken on my work desk when I'm at the office, so I really hope it's not my work books that make those bots pop!

Bumblebee looks really good, I'm excited to get my hands on him here soon

Is it just me, or does Bumblebee look really out of place with all these skinny-waisted Gurren Lagann-looking guys?

I don't think so, the other guys are tall, lanky guys, and he is meant to be short and stocky

That contrast gives him a great visual role of wielding that hammer I think, it’s almost like the dwarf on the quest: oh this guy? The little guy? Yeah he’s short and tough and typically brandishing a heavy melee weapon - it works for me. These pieces I can just zone out on sometimes it’s like action figure art.

I saw that Bee kit at EB Games (Canadian Gamestop). It was around 60$CAN. Having spare money I would have gotten him. Especially because he's like a fancy version of Action Master Bee.

OK. I'm literally joining the bloody forums just to say this.

Please.
PLEASE.
PLEASE clean your frickin' nub marks.
They're just... absolutely egregious. Coming from a builder of Gunpla, cleaning your nubs is one of the most important steps in making your models look amazing. Big white stress marks and excess pieces of sprue don't help with the look.

I know I'm being blunt but I'm really not trying to be rude. I just wanna have the gallery look amazing and really make the kits shine.

The reason why the model kit bumble looks so different is, that he is actually kind of different line. Some of those kits represent highly stylized versions of the bot in question. Others are more like official IDW versions of the character. Like there are 2 different Prime kits available.

Aha!
I wholeheartedly understand that such a thing would "trigger" any semi-pro model builders.

If I ever build a model, I'll be sure to use some sand paper and/or a file to get rid of those admittedly unsightly sprue nubs.
Then I'd waste the whole thing with my horrible painting skills. #-o

Even slicing them off with a hobby knife and running your nail over them to remove the stress mark is sufficient to me, but a sanding and polishing job is definitely the pro way to do it!

JomasterII, I understand your feelings. However, the way things currently stand it's kinda a miracle that the kit got built and photographed at all.

Why is it a miracle that got done?

Know what? it should have been built and photographed by a Hasbro photographer. Just to make things hilariously interesting. :lol:

I think the difference being spoken about was between Bumblebee and Attack Mode Prime, as they are part of the same "subline" of the stylized versions.

I like the 2-part line too. Giving us IDW Prime, Megatron, and Drift is really awesome. And then we also get these highly stylized ones like Prime, Bee, the Seekers, Devastator, Hound, and Windblade soon.

And this is just me, but more Transformers need handheld melee weapons, especially Hammers and Axes

I completely agree with the last comment, it's one of the reasons I love the deluxe animated battle begins Optimus Prime, I prefer the axe on him then his bigger voyager mold :lol:

Now there's some designs I think will suit Flame Toys stylings :?

I still find it a little odd that he can have the shattered glass autobot symbols
