    incase you havn't seen my photoshoot thread in the toyark, here is MY version of Bee.

    2 VERY easy mods i did were 1) flip the yellow tabs on the back of teh feet so they rotate down, and give him extra support and balance. I think these were put on upside down anyway, it makes more sense to have them support him, not just sticking straight out. and 2) i cut the stoping tab off the door/wheel wing assembly that prevents the parts from rotating firther than 90 degrees. this makes it rotathe further, and looks more like the movie, and ads bulk to his back.

    Those heel tabs are supposed to flip up in robot mode, replicating a detail from the movie model.

    Looks great, except for the panel lining. I would limit it to the bot mode only, as it looks a little funny in car mode.

    Did you repaint the yellow? Or add anything to it? It looks more shiny and car paint like.

    You should flip his 'heels" up for more accuracy.

    Very good!

    I agree. I wasn't going to say anything, but it looks bad in spots like the door hinges.

    It looks great in robot mode, though.

    He didn't panel line the door hinges. That's the blue clear plastic you see showing through since the doors are painted yellow. All the toys are like that. Nice job on the detailing, buddy.

    Yeah, I was just going to say that. I don't see any panel lining going on there.

    Well that sucks. I'll have to try and find a matching yellow to cover that when I get mine.
