    I've heard a couple complaints about the stingers on the original colored animated Bumble bee. I've also read that on the new elite Guard BB they fixed this.
    My Question is how off are the stingers. Is it something somebody who has never kitbashed anything can fix. does it need to be sanded down or filed off?

    thanks.

    Just get regular and then do the fix, not that hard but if you're patient then it's worth it

    If your a retard and broke off the stinger when trying to fix it like me, go for elete guard. That way you can be lazy like me.
    And it has a killer color scheme IMO.

    You don't really need any kitbashing experience for this kind of thing. What i did was use a penknife and chipped off the excess plastic that was preventing the stingers from folding in fully. You could unscrew the hands apart if it makes the job easier, but really simple.

    Thanks all. I'll try my luck then. It's actually for my finace. She likes animated Bumblebee, but wants the original colors, not the elite. I'll take a look at it and see if it's a simple fix. at the very least i can just buy both and keep the elite for myself after I swap the stingers.

    thanks for moving this to the right section too.

    Mine is (we met through TF forums). But that's not always a good thing as she'll always be touching your figures and laying claim to your coolest ones.

    Question, why'd you keep the yellow wheels on the elite, if you painted all the yellow? wouldn't it be better to swap the wheels between them?
    sorry, really like what you did, I was just thinking.
