    I got a Custom Bumblebee from fellow board member ZedzDead's,so as we all know he is missing a gun.I made one out of a thumb tack and a zoid gun I had.I just sanded down the rim of the bottom of the tack and it fit perfectly in to BB's hand,added some glue and thats it.This is my second small custom feel free to leave constructive criticism.

    Also I plan on making a TF comic in the funnies section so I tried my hand at using gimp in one of these images.Fell free to leave advice on how to make the eye glow more realistic and taking better pics.

    Hopefully I will get better at making customs so I can do a full figure next.

    Nice one.

    As for the eye glow, there's a tutorial for that over in funnies, but i think it's for Photoshop only. I think it looks pretty good right now, all it needs is for the outer edge to be faded a bit, to really make it look like it's 'glowing'.

    That's a nice gun. I just use the guns from the Classic Camaro Movie Bumblebee.
