No, he does not look exactly like the thumbnail, that's 08 BB, but we do have some more prototype pictures to share of the alt mode, robot modes (protoform, and Earth mode), as well as, the 'comet' form-- the travel through the atmosphere shell form.

You can view the images here.

Like the idea of the Trans-scanning figures? Think it's a load of exhaust and leakin' lubricants?

Car mode is nice.
Entry mode looks like crap(literally)
Robot mode is... :???:
Protoform mode looks more like a protoform from RiD to me. Not like the ones from the movie.
Neat concept, but I'll pass.

The protoform does look like its a pre beast wars one as in the ones on the show like when you could hardly see megatron before they scaned and it also looks like it is set for RID but its a start.

As I've been saying, I like the concept, but the figures need some work.

I'll get them to support the concept and hope that future figures get developed better.

Still, I'd love it if Hasbro would import some.

Eww the alt mode looks good, but the robot mode is full of kibble :SICK:

correct me if I'm wrong, but is this just a robot skeleton you put different panels and pieces on?

That's about the gist of it.

I like what they're trying to do ... but Bumblebee? How many BBs do we need? Between all the recolors of the normal molds and the FAB toys, and Legends, and Ultimate BB hasn't everyone who wanted a BB gotten one already?

Yeah, they should do Jazz instead :P

It's comon sense when doing something experimental to go with the most popular.

i still don't understand why they gave him the car-back parts instead of door wings...
a pass for me.

It is.
I think everyone that posts a new thread about the transscanning figs should explain what this transcanning thing is all about.

It is nice concept but I think that I will pass on this one.

I'll get Prime and BB if they hit European retail, pretty slim change since Takara is doing these with no word from Hasbro yet. I'm not too sure about tracking them down online.

Because in truth, we don't know! We are just going on pictures we have seen, ans some descriptions from awhile back... I don't read japanese, and not much English translated has been said about them.

Sorry.

Good idea, poor execution.

If you want more information on these figures, don't tell the News Crew or members who simply want to share photos with the rest of us what to do. Use the site's Search function or Google and look up what you want to know. God forbid someone makes a topic about theoretic physics...

I think I need to see the full color figure before making a judgement.

I dont like this one. The Prime one looked cool but Bumblebee looks horrible. I like the idea but they needed to work the car part in better to the bot form and the entry mode needs more work.

I like the idea of these trans-scans, just wish they'd do some of the 'cons(Barricade, Brawl & Bonecrusher to be precise) as well as Jazz & Ironhide

No need to apologize.
Trans-scanning figures consist of:
-a protoform figure (both BB and OP share the same mold of the protoform)
-a car that you can disassemble into pieces and put the pieces wherever you like (i guess)

wow. imagine a half-bumblebee-half-optimus robot. :D

OP looks cool in his robot mode, but BB is just horrible.
-He has his headlights on his knees as well as on his chest. Odd.
-He doesn't have his famous doorwings.
-He totally doesn't look like bb, ascutally.
