    Impressed by Solrac333 i created my very own one.

    @Solrac333: I hope this is okay for you, i wanted to buy yours, but you don't ship to germany :( 

    My Mods:

    Modded Arms
    Modded Knees
    Swapped Head
    Removed the Triangle behind his Neck

    Painted with revell aquacolours.

    i needed 12 layers of yellow!!! to paint dark parts with bright colours is very pain in the ass! i needed 8 days for this guy!

    i really hope you like him and his brothers (classic bee must be repainted) ;)

    Looks nice. Might just be me, but I think it could do with some more yellow visible in robot mode. On the chest or something.

    You know, it's funny, but this kind of looks like the new Transformers Prime Bumblebee in a way. I don't know if that's what you were going for, but either way, you did a good job on it.

    Edit: BTW, he's missing the usual black racing stripe(s)...

    Thank you guys.

    The pic of the "the hub"-bee isn't the prime-bumblebee, it's just a pic of A bee - this is my opinion. And no, i don't use this concept for my bumblebee. And it dont miss the black stripe, i let it gone, cause i really dislike it on the volt-model

    Next time, prime with a white primer. Then you won't need as many layers of yellow. Good job though. :thumbs2:

    So how does it feel to have one of your own? I remember seeing Jin Saotome's Shockwaves and was SO happy when I was able to make one for myself.

    The same thing with Autobotx23's ROTF Shockwave. Saw his, had to make one for myself.

    (I still don't ship internationally, sorry) :)

    It feels so good, cause i think this mold fits nearly perfect for movie bumblebee. He looks friendly and powerfull to. From alll my bees this is one of my favorites (my best one is protoform bumblebee)

    But i really hope i find a voyagermold wich makes bee more mature.

    That's a really neat rendition of Bumblebee! I love the paint applications! Nice work!
    Kudos to Solrac333 for the great idea! I'm tempted to see what other ROTF and movie figures will look like if they were done in a Bumblebee-type motif...

    Also, that is a very interesting version of Brawl you got there! Is that his pre-earth mode?
