Stinger is a third-party Transformer homage to Generation 1 Bumblebee.
Sadly the whole line was scrapped.
The biography for Stinger makes reference to his design being commissioned by Horror Monarch, iGear's version of Megatron. This is a reference to the fact that the Volkswagon Beetle design was commissioned by Adolf Hitler.
Stinger should not be confused with the Keith's Fantasy Club characters of the Stinger (Keith's Fantasy Club).
Rocky and Stinger were announced by iGear on their Facebook page in April 2013.
The Fwooshcast podcast for May 12th, 2013 covered prototype images of Busta, Red Baron, Rocky and Stinger in the news.
The moonbase2 podcast for May 14th, 2013 covered prototype images of iGear Busta, Red Barn, Rocky and Stinger in the news.
A little known fact, but the body-type that Stinger used on his home planet was commissioned as part of the “robot’s wheels” project commissioned by Horror Monarch to create an unified, energy efficient, easily repairable alt. mode for all robot citizens. Stinger was quick to rid himself of such a heinous vehicle shell, before picking what he thought was a less contentious Earth mode.
