    I bashed these a while ago, when I was still learning a lot of the in's and outs of bashing. I had to have a Ironhide and Bumblebee, but when I found a cheap Tracks I had no idea what to do with it. I swapped out a modded Rollbar head and placed some "Peace" decals on him and Bam!! I had that hippie Beachcomber in my alts.

    They are riddled with noob mistakes (like Bumblebee's window mask) but the decals helped a lil. It's nice to see your own growth by looking at your older customs.

    Enjoy!

    No, not these. They are Dry Transfer decals I picked up at my local Hobby bench. They go on Krylon very well, though.

    The ironhide is my favorite. The bumblee bee is a little busy with the decals, but the panel lines are great. Not sure how I feel about the beachcomber

    I like Ironhide the best. Love yellow RX-8's, but not really as BB. That's just a personal opion, you still did a nice job on it. I really like the panel lines on the body painted black, gives more of a bee vibe

    Correct me if I'm wrong but you said Beachcomber had a modded Rollbar head, but it looks like a Meister head to me (personally I like the Rollbar head as Beachcomber more).

    All and all great work for early stuff

    I did an Alt Megatron some time ago, and had an extra Rollbar head from it. It took some sanding, but it turned out okay.

    These look great man! I love the head mod on Beachcomber. I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the alt mode detailing on him though. You get points for creativity though :wink: 

    The concept on Bumblebee is very interesting and I think you pulled it off well overall. I love the feeling of an actual bumblebee you gave him :) 

    I still have to say I'm not a fan of the Scion mold for Ironhide, but everything you've done to him is very well done. You gave him nice variety with the color scheme and it balances out well. I love your use of silver on him. You effectively used it as a secondary color.

    Again, great job man! :thumb
