    What really bugged me was the paint apps or the lack of it. Just got it 2 hours ago and started brushing it. Altho the chest does not fold, it still looks ok.

    EDIT: Tried gunmetal, looks better IMHO

    Oh, cool. I haven't seen one of these yet. Nice drybrush work.

    Man, here i was thinking I wasn't going to buy any Movie II stuff, but all the new toys of the Movie I guys are so nice that I kind of really want them. Prime and Starscream look fantastic, and so does this one. I guess I can use my Movie I Bumblebee for custom fodder - that one guy's Barricade-based custom came out nice.

    Getting back to the topic of customs, given how close to the movie the new toys seem to be, I wonder how much customizing we're gonna get out of them? You'll definitely have your "realistic paint jobs" and original characters and all, but it looks like the headsculpts, articulation, etc, are miles beyond what we got two years ago. Should be an interesting time on the forums - I seem to remember that summer/fall '07 was more than half people showing off their modified Movie stuff (and then there was the Endless Summer of The Custom Alternators...).

    Figure this won't be too different. Anyway, nice work, and thanks for opening the inevitable floodgates. :D

    Very nice, though I wonder why you opted for silver rather than dark silver/gunmetal?

    This has given me ideas for Cannon BB if I get him. Awesome job and great inspiration. ;) 

    Are you going to experiment correcting the eye colours?

    Hi,

    awesome job.

    Like I asked in the 'cool stuff thread' I was planning on getting this one and modify my original CC bumblebee with it. I want to transplant the arms to the old mold even if I have to sacrifice the alt. mode. Any idea if that works? (I might add a ball joint at the elbows)

    Also, any idea if the headsculpt is the same as Preview BB's?

    iDD

    Man, I knew I was getting this figure before, but now its on my gotta catch em all list. Great job, though, as it was asked before, why the silver? Are you going to dry brush it with black to darken it up some?? I'd also like to say that I'm sad we lost so much detail in the upper arms to make room for the aewsome detailing in the lower arms. Very sad.

    After some consideration, gunmetal would look much better on silver, so here goes!

    Gunmetal FTW!!!!
    - you gonna add detail paint (like to his joints) or leave it this way?

    Either way...

    I thought the originals arms were too yellow.
