    the idea behind this was rather simple. I had not drawn this guy in ages and compared to my art work now my old BB looked dated. So I started thinking up ideas to use and as it just so happens I was looking at getting a MX-5/roadster/maita with the hardtop and I looked at that hard top and I got the idea that it could make for a cool chest plate for BB. Out side of the car mode the only other must have was the old G1 toy head with a face rather then the animation model head.

    Edit: not with 13% less fender bender action

    Really nice, the front of the car looks a little off maybe.... where the hood meets the windshield, it looks like it dips more on the right side, than on the left.

    yeah the highlight does not help as it wipes out the hood lines I'll tweak it and repost it in a sec

    awesome its nice to know my stuff has such impact.

    PS. CryoPrime I've edited the front end. I pulled up the hood likes and raised the droopy light (granted its still not perfect at least it does not look like a write off)

    no prob. I knew it wasn't spot on but until you pointed it out I didn't know just how much it looked like some one had drove into the left side of the car mode.

    Wow! Now that's just perfect!

    ... I wish the Alternity version of BB looked half as cool as this.

    Heh, I noticed that too! :lol 


    This design for Bumblebee is awesome. I love how you used the original toy's helmet design. And retaining his G1 silhouette helps a lot. :thumb

    Blitz., I'd like to see this design (obviously tweaked for a little bit of variety) as:
    • Glyph
    • Bugbite
    • Hubcap
    • Carerra
    • Tap-Out

    Did I say that I absolutely love this design? I want to see an Alternator made of this design. :(

    I like the Miata TF, but the shape is a touch off, try a rounder roof & lights.
