    At first, this Bumblebee mold didn't interest me. The Human Alliance figure is near-perfect, and this would be a pointless purchase. Then I saw it in the store, and figured "why not". I ended up thinking I'd just put it on the shelf with my other MISB figures, but then my wife wanted me to paint it for our son who should be born any day now. So, think of this as an early birthday present. :D  Anyway, enough of the sappy stuff...

    Nothing fancy, just a simple repaint. Steel, brass, gold, black, metallic sapphire and yellow with a pinch of orange (for the hands) were used. I used the metallic sapphire on the eyes, then gave a brass retina and black pupil to try and make it a bit more accurate. I didn't have my light tent, so I tried to take the best pic I could to show that off.

    Anyway, as always, comments & critiques are encouraged. Thanks for your time.
