Very nice work.
If the figure had looked like this, I would have bought it.

See... this is why I thought it was an overpriced KO reshell... there's been a few mods done for a while now to reduce the kibble... which they could've retooled into their offering... but nope, just make the bits removable. blech.

Gotta say though, partforming or not, the mods you did work out real well. The backpack rotating gives him much better proportions... as well as offering space to store his doors.

Only way to perfect it would be to remove partsforming altogether. But still awesome. Nicely done.

Damn, you do it again. Is there anything you cannot do. Shiiiiiiiitttttt.........

Looks great! I was taking pics of MP Red Alert today, and I kept thinking, "HasTak should have just used OTL's design!" Now you go and do this!

Thank you folks. I wish the makers had put some extra thought into this instead of just going for a straight reshell of Classics BB. It could really have been a lot better...

Thanks, mostly kept to interior so 'invisible' when you look at him. I didn't even need to do any painting on this (even though I've got the first version with not-quite-matched paint, so it would've been of benefit!)

Absolutely. I think there's still a definitive G1 Bumblebee to be made. As I alluded to in the description, it's certainly possible to do the doors around the feet and the hood folding under the chest, but I chose not to... Maybe somebody else will

Ha ha cheers dude, I just got MP Alert today in the post. Wish they'd made more effort to differentiate him from Swipe, but still a great figure.

This looks fantastic! (Funnily enough, I was wondering only the other day when you'd be posting the mods you mentioned you were thinking of making a while back in the AF BB thread.)

Would you be at all willing to post a couple of extra detail shots of the new hinge you've made, and how it's attached? I'd love to have a go at that backpack mod myself, as I ended up with two of these. Either way, looks great!

The doors are not actually fixed to anything, but slide in comfortably between the central section and the rear wheels, resting on those little molded protrusions just above the hips and pressing against the rear end of the car. They might not have done this quite so easily if I hadn't previously taken off the unsightly square wing mirrors (I'd rather have none at all than those huge things!).
