The Chinese New Year started on Thursday, February 3 and it's already been a few days of the Lunar New Year but since traditionally, this "Spring Festival" - literal translation of the Chinese name 春节 (Pinyin: Chūn Jié) - is celebrated for 15 days, it's still okay for me to wish everyone HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
And because this is the Year of the Rabbit (2011), here's "hopping" everyone have a prosperous new year and as we say over here "HUAT ah!" (meaning: "To prosper")
And who or what better to usher in the year of the Rabbit than Beast Wars Neo Stampy.
Stampy transforms into a white rabbit with red eyes when in beast mode, which probably makes it an albino rabbit. And here's Rabbit seeing off Tiger (Tigatron in beast mode) since the Year of the Tiger (2010) has passed.
Stampy was part of the Japanese-exclusive Beast Wars Neo series, which featured all original toys. In Robot mode, the rabbit's head splits into Stampy's hands, with the rabbit ears as swords. The rabbit's hind legs become the robot legs, while the forelegs go onto the back.
To view all (well, almost) the "Beast Wars: Transformers" Jared (my eldest son) collected when he was younger, check out my earlier post HERE (or simply click on the picture below - it'll lead you on to more pictures, bigger and better views ;>)
Another Japanese-exclusive Beast Wars Neo series which was covered in an earlier post was Maximal Lio Convoy OR Leo Prime.
