    UPDATE 1-30-12: Post #3

    I started out doing several of savio-prime's awesome BB Bee mods: chest, hood, feet, thighs, wrists, and OMEGAPRIME83's bead eyes. I then tried to do the collar and back mods, but found myself unable to and decided to take a different route...

    He still needs some painting, a little clean-up, and probably new Reprolabels. But the major construction is complete. Here's vehicle mode:

    Here's robot mode immediately after transformation:

    And here he is after replacing the chest pieces, the car top, and the taillight pieces:

    I put the replacement pieces together from an extra Bee. I actually prefer transforming him by removing the excess pieces, transforming, then putting on the other pieces. He's still pretty tricky to transform...

    Here's a close-up of his collar, which I still have to paint. I got these pieces from the spikes on the back of a RotF Ravage...

    Thanks man! I've painted some yellow and some dry brushing on him the other day. I think there's more I can paint on him, but I'm going to take a break from him for now. I like his current state and I'm getting kind of sick of him, again :)

    Looks great buddy! I've tried a similar chest mod for my HA Bee, but messed up one of the sides & can't bring myself to hack up another HA B just for that. This inspires me to fiddle with it though, maybe I can fill it in with some sculpting agent.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, the only reason I went ahead with this is because I had a spare BBBB already that I could use for parts...

    Yeah, savio helped me out in his original thread. almost all the parts came from bees. If you need any let me know. I started another bee and this one has become a junker after my son played with it:)
