    Didn't really like the Camaro Bee mold until I saw Jarrod's custom

    So I caved in, bought one and started to customize for myself.

    The original eyes looked funny, so I modded it with my handy dremel. Here's a preview.

    I will be painting the arms and legs gun metal and will add yellow and a bit of gold trims :)

    Nice work :) 

    See Hasbro, your toys look infinitely better when they're actually PAINTED :p

    To be fair, Hasbro does have to make these things out of a bazillion individual parts so they can transform, pose, and incorporate whatever gimmick is in-style...and STILL sell them at $10.

    Cut 'em some slack. ;p

    no, dude! it's way awesomer to have the super crazy detailed paint jobs like the japanese BW10th guys! (except that, of course, those are twenty bucks a pop for decade-old molds...)

    -hx, you get what you pay for.

    That looks great. I think I'm going to pass on this Bumblebee, but the 2008 version might get a similar treatment from me.

    What is an alternative to a dremel?

    Great job, I wanted to do it, but couldn't find a tool for the job.

    Thanks guys. Here's a small update. Added some shade of blue on the eyes and yellow on its arms.

    Will color the arms gun metal when I get more time to work on it.

    By the way GMANIFESS you can use a small hand drill
