    I just got an 08 BB today and the Arcee and I love em!! Tomorrow since Wal-Marts open 24 hrs I'm going in and picking up one more bee, which I will gladly sell to one of you. It's a must have toy!! I might even repaint the one I'm picking up.. Lemme know should I repaint or leave it as it is.. I'm pretty artistically inclined but I'm not sure yet.. LET A BROTHA KNOW.

    If it's open 24 hrs I doubt it will be there in the morning. These have been jumping off the pegs that quickly.

    Some nice old lady is holding one for me which is pretty cool. She even was the one that opened the new box up for me because she said everyone else that asked her was rude about it. =]

    i use humbrol and warhammer paints for small brush work, and warhammer gunmettal for dry brushing that steel look.

    i've also done some easy modifications. on the feet, the rear yellow tabs are on upside down. if you flip them, the can rotate all the way dow and add the extra support.

    also, on the upper chest, wheel/ door assembly, there is a little tab that prevents the assembly from rotatong further, if you cut the tab off, the assembly will rotate more acuratly and be more show acurate

    you would NOT believe the difference a few mm further rotation makes.

    BB 08 is worth every penny and more if you see him grab him. Who knows when you will see another one of those again. Lucky i found him and Arcee deluxe.
