We caught a glimpse of his pre-VW beetle robot look in the teaser trailer. Now, we get our first look at the actual vehicle used in filming. Courtesy of screen used online auctions which sells authentic movie props.
YEAH BABY, YEAH!!! You cannot also bid on the ruffled tie blue suit of Austin Powers, a Star Trek phaser gun prop, a sword from Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars Episode IV Jawa Boots or a piece of the Death Star prop....!!!
These guys are reputable. Back in 2009, I bought from them the prop lensometer/microscope used in filming Revenge of the Fallen that was Scalpel’s alt mode! It’s still a unique item in my Transformers collection! So, who wants that jeep for (starting bid) $15K?!
“In the new movie, yet to hit theatres later this year in 2018, Bumblebee starts off as a Willys Jeep in the forest fighting off military and Decepticons. Rumor is that he is damaged and right before shutting down scans a Volkswagen Beetle. He then continues through the rest of the movie as the Beetle.”

From the upcoming film, comes the Studio Series version of the title character, sporting his gorgeous, vintage VW Beetle alt mode. We’ve heard this toy was in the works, but this is our first close look at the figure. Photos posted via “UncleTree Studio Toys Addict”
G1 enthusiasts will appreciate the effort designers put into creating a faithful, but improved version of the original. Each Predacon team member is equally scaled larger than an Voyager, smaller than a Leader.
Too much to see and discuss in this Power of the Primes Predaking Set, so I’m going to break our gallery and review into 1 post per character.
Of course, the design team had an impressive challenge: to make 5 equally sized beast/bots transform into one very large, yet proportional combiner robot. Of course, some concessions had to be made. One option the designers had would’ve been to make Razorclaw twice the size as other team members. (Remember Long Haul in the Constructicons Set?! HUGE! - and yet he only formed half of Devastator’s torso!) I’m glad they didn’t go this route, but instead got creative.
The logical alternative was to build Predaking torso components into team members who formed limbs. Thus the downside here is that, yeah - he has one of the single largest backpacks of any Transformers toy ever made! But the black color certainly disguises its obtrusiveness. Fortunately, they made Tantrum’s bot legs sturdy enough to still be posed, without falling over with the substantial weight of the upper leg/backpack. Squint your eyes, use a little imagination and you’re good!
Beyond that he’s sturdy pose-able w/ rocker ankle pivots and looks pretty fabulous each mode.
New photo gallery with side by side comparisons to the original have been added to the character page in the 2018 Transformers Section of unicron.com

“We can confirm that the film will open on Cybertron and will be briefly visited later again. Fans of Transformer’s “Generation 1” will be pleased for the film will showcase many iconic autobots and decepticons- all which sport designs identical to their 1980s cartoon counterparts.”

Thanks to Hasbro, we have received one of the promotional packs they had available at San Diego Comic Con. From what we can tell, (and from showing my 12 year old son who would know!) it seems the Transformers game will combine elements of both Magic The Gathering and Pokémon. We’ll pass along further info as we can!
