    Heeeeey... It's time for a net Transformers movie and new figures!

    I've been so happy with the Studio Series line and have been loving customizing all the ones I have up.

    Presented to you is SS Bumblebee custom painted with a door wing mod, detachable roof area and interchangeable fists.

    Enjoy the pics below!

    Yep, see them now. Great job bringing out the detail in that mold. Haha unfortunately it still doesn't change my mind about it, not bring screen accurate n'all, bit I'm sure there'll be more than a few on here you've convinced.

    Dude that’s really nice! I wish the figure was like that! I’d honestly be fine if he had a suitcase for his accessories to give a clean back. If anything it gives them a place to be when not in use. I need a tutorial on this!

    Terrible, tiny figure. Good effort while we wait for all the remolds and recolors of VW BB.

    Im waiting on the MMP mold. Lets see what mods we can do to improve that...

    Nothing was done to the paint/plastic of the figure itself. Just some Photoshop color correction and decent led lighting.

    The sockets were from a junker TF Prime Cyberverse Bumblebee's hips and the ball joints from a broken DOTM Cyberverse Roadbuster' shoulders.
