    I bought this Metallic edition from Cosco,
    and repinted the Internal structure.
    Hope you like it.
    Thank you.

    wow, great job on these! My wife works at a Costco, a major toy reseller came in and bought the whole pallet of these guys when they got marked down to 20$ before I could get one.

    Wow, that really looks nice! I don't have this figure, so I am wondering if you had to disassemble it much to paint it, or were you able to paint everything in place?
    Did you airbrush?

    Awesome job!

    Possibly, but maybe they'll be at TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Ross, lots of Bots and Cons have been sighted there lately. :D 

    As for the fabulous paint work, Bee has never looked better, IMHO. Great job and excellent detail work too. :thumb  :thumb

    AWESOME WORK!! This is how i seen my BB in my head..
    I just came across this thread while searching for someone who detailed there BB. I have the same figure and think its the best BB from the entire movie verse line. I was hoping to find someone i could comission the work too but you are so far away lol So i may give it a go myself..

    Was it hard to take him all apart and get all the parts to go back so they work correctly again like the hand inside the gun ? Also can you still transform him or will paint scratch ?

    What kinds of paints did you use for this ? Sorry for all the questions lol i never took on a project like and i have only used acrylic paints so far .. Any pointers or tips would be great :)

    I am so glad that you like my BB
    I only took it apart into 5 pieces - Body,two arms and two feet.
    The structure inside these 5 parts is too complicated,
    so I didn't take him all apart.

    Be carefull when you take the screw off.
    there are tiny springs inside the joints.
    If you lost one of them,your BB may not stand again.

    Yes,I used acrylic colors(TAMIYA) ,too.
