    Hey guys, I am not 100% sure this goes here but I custom painted/created a BumbleBee Joy-con. I airbrushed the inside of a 3rd Party clear shell yellow and then the back very faint yellow and black with Autobot symbols from Toyhax.

    After I assembled them, I began doing some quick checks and tightening a few screws here and there. I then heard a crack and accidentally cracked the front...turns out I overtightened a few screws inside. A mistake that I will not make again.

    Want to do this more and thinking since there are two Joy-cons, I might do some of our favorite Conjunx Endura couples! Chromedome and Rewind, Cyclonus and Tailgate, Anode and Lug to name a few. Also, our favorite Co-Captains! Rodimus and Megatron!

    Might put these up for sale as well if anyone is interested too.

    You can check out the video below for me explaining a few things about them while I reassemble them.

    That's really awesome! As for future cases, Maybe try out a basic Autobot and Decepticon pair?

    Yeah, this is going to be my next set! Just need to work on the design since they aren't as clean cut in terms of colors as 'Bee is :p . Well, they are but a brown and black/gunmetal controller color set isn't doesn't scream Chromedome and Rewind. Also, want to do something cool with Rewind's camera. 'Bee is the easiest since just make something yellow and slap an Autobot symbol on it and automatically everyone says Bumblebee. :p 

    Would you need a full joy-con set where I do everything or just the replacement shells to DIY? Still working out pricing and what not. Depending if people send me their Joy-cons, I need to go get new ones, or just doing the shells.

    Thanks! Yeah, they are on the list as well. Once I work out the pricing, I will be making designs digitally to see how they look :)

    I tried checking out the video but it was 45 minutes long and started off with 3 minutes of just sitting there and the painting part was already done, so obviously I didn't sit through the whole thing. Given that, I apologize if you already answered this but I was curious how you did the autobot symbol in the front. Looks like a white outline repro label on the inside but how did you mask it so that no yellow paint ended up being the sticker?

    Well, its an assemble video. Me putting it together. :p  Can't really record me airbrushing it as when I tried, it never came out well. I did explain everything I did in the video since when I did a time lapse I got a bunch comments that they wanted me to explain what I did.

    But yeah I placed the sticker on the unpainted joy-con. I then painted over it, waited for it to cure, removed it, then put a new sticker on. :)

    Heh. It's kind of obvious in retrospect but it was lined up so well that it didn't occur to me it'd been two stickers.
