    Haven't posted anything lately. (to be frank, I was a little disappointed everybody read over my Sunstreaker, but that's just because it moved off page 1 so fast.)

    I haven't seen many of classic Bumblebee's. I was inspired by Crefigz' beautiful verfsion of this mold, so I decided to do my own.

    I'm waiting on some good daylight for good pictures, but I'll put up a previewpic for now.

    Thanks, I wish mine had the translucent windows though, so that I could turn those into smoke-windows. now they're just matte black.

    Very true. I didn't really go for movie accuracy though. I just drybrushed all the black and then went nuts with yellow. =P

    Same goes for the car. I just made the car look like it went to Hell and back, since I'm not confident enough to make pretty rust like Crefigz did. Expect picture on the alt mode and new botmode pics soon. =)

    And thanks.

    It looks nice, but I think that some darker yellow/orange washes would help to break up all that same-shade yellow on the legs and other robot parts. You might wanna do something to highlight those yellow edges on robot mode as well. :)

    Great paint job man.

    You know what I never understood. If all bumblee changes is his vehicle mode. Why is the classics bumbebee flat-footed.

    As far as I am concerned both toys should have been the same robot, just that one would have different covering car parts.

    very nice! it looks pretty beat up. :thumb  i wouldn't hassle much over the thread thing. my most recent work went to page 4 in half a day. sometimes the people are picky but they have a right to what they like the most. keep on bashing man! :D

    There is a very simple mod to adjust his feet so that he doesn't look flat footed. You should try that.
