    Archaix was apparently the male version of Glyph, so I thought it would be cool to envoke the name lol!
    Non Transforming.
    Bumblebee and Archaix are made from a combination of some 3 3/4 sized Gundam figures, Kre-O parts, and some clearanced out Mega Blocks "Need for Speed" race car sets. BB's head is straight from a RTS figure, and Archaix came from a modified Bot Shots G1 esque Bumblebee.
    My goal was to have a very poseable, and scale friendly Bumblebee for my classics display...I kind of built Archaix along side BB.
    There's still some details to clean up...sorry about the crappy cell phone pics...

    Hey thanks!
    They really were a lot of fun to build and paint!
    Just another something different to have on the shelf.

    Thank you!

    That's pretty creative! :thumb  Although if I may I think Glyph should have a more female face. That's only my opinion however.

    This might be a silly question, but do they transform? I only see pics of their robot modes.

    Thanks!
    For the head, I just went off the G1 figure's face which I believe was shared with the G1 BB figure. I realized that it wasn't very feminine which is why I kind of leaned towards calling it Archaix rather than Glyph.
    Thank you though!


    No such thing as silly questions!
    No, they do not transform, but they do have quite a bit of articulation, and poseability. In that sense they are pretty much action masters.
    Thank you!

    Yeah man! LOL
    Thanks!

    These are so very cool, man! Is "Glyphs" face from a G1 Sixgun?

    Thanks!

    No...I got his face from one of the newer Bot Shots Bumblebees that uses the "G1 toy" face...then I basically created the back half of the head...you've probably seen the Bot Shots...they have like half of a head lol, so making the rest of it can be a pain in the ass.

    I love that this Glyph is clearly similar to Bee but actually looks feminine to me. Not a fan of her head though.

    Nice. What's the quality of those Need for Speed sets anyway?

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Thank you! The NFS sets are surprisingly durable and easy to work with...a nice sturdy plastic, and the way they break into the component pieces is very conducive towards what we'd use them for...I plan on picking up some more for some eventual re-shelling and scratch builds. Definitely check em out!
