    Hello
    Long time lurker, first time poster. I love the original VW bumblebee concept and have seen some others wonderful work here on the boards. I am requesting 2 CHUG figures. One, a 60ish old beetle bumblebee (just yellow, no bayverse stripes :rolleyes2 ) and the other, the same basic body as the G! vw BB but painted as Herbie the love bug from the old disney movies. I would request them both to be about deulx size or in scale with the other "CHUGS".
    Please PM me, and or post here.

    Thank you all for your time.

    I would love to do this, but no way I'd tackle a reshell for $100.

    I would say $200 as a MINIMUM. Reshells are a lot of work. An experienced customizer would still spend his entire weekend on it. Factor in his cost to purchase the Bumblebee ( not a cheap toy nowadays ), the Beetle toy/model, and any and all supplies, and that could end up costing $50-$100 in itself. So it comes down to how much is the customizer's time worth?
