Thanks to BB7 Toys at Facebook here are some new images of the officially licensed Transformers 3D Metal Puzzles by Shangai Art Model.

These officially licensed models are made from ultra thin laser-cut sheet metal pieces assembling into a larger metal object 11-18cm long. You know, basically knives.

Using a simple tab-into-slot assembly process these models assemble with no glue, but do require a wealth of patience.

From this staffer's personal experience all you need is a little determination, an electron microscope, a pair of Doctor Octopus assistance arms, a few adhesive medical strips (for yourself) and you too can find the joy of juggling small knives until they somehow assemble into awesome looking metal masterpieces.

There is no current information on their suggested retailer price or their release date, but the release wave will feature the following live-action characters in their vehicle forms:

Ironhide as a GMC Topkick 4500 truck from Transformers 2007.
Sentinel Prime as a Rosenhauer Panther Firetruck from Dark Of The Moon.
Bumblebee in his Chevrolet Camaro Concept from 2017's The Last Knight.
Hound as a Mercedes Unimog tactical vehicle also from The Last Knight.
Hot Rod in his Lamborghini Centenario body from The Last Knight.
And Optimus Prime as a Peterbilt 379 Truck from Transformers 2007.

Check out the images below and share your own tales of woe (or joy) when assembling these mini metal models.

I really wish these ones weren't so pricey. I wanted but could not justify Star Saber, and this is so ridiculously cool, especially since it is a G1, Movie, and Animated Prime fused into one. I really would like him.

These are super cool. Too bad that they don't really sell these in Europe. Though I have preordered all the model kits.

Some toys may have a larger codpieces, but at least they are not trying to poke your eyes off with it like this one. But its not really that terrible.

Haven't got mine yet for some reason. Bumblebee should have been out already, but I'm not in a hurry. I have other scale models and miniatures to finish.

The nice thing about those is, that you can build them straight from the box or paint them by yourself and maybe add some extra detail etc.

Dude DMax the pics you posted is the reason I’m dying to pick some of these up. I don’t know why but it’s when a fan gets one and poses them just as well as the fancy shots, I’m sold. It’s probably those manuals you use as a background I think it just makes them pop :lol:

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.
