    Well after seeing some really cool Bumble Bee customs over the last few months and hearing enuff times that they are re-releasing the classics Bumble Bee mold,I have started on version 2 of mine.

    I started by cutting up a half finished custom actionmaster stlye BB made from a oversized KO BB and a classics BB.
    I ground down the back of the oversized BB feet to see if they could fit over the classics mold if they were grounded down too. They fit!! But they need to be hinge mounted or be cut for the legs and a hinged flap be made of the left over piece. I'm gonna hinge mount them and I'm gonna use piece's from a TFTM leader prime.
    You may have noticed in one of the pictures he dosnt have the doors on his arms,well my plan is to have them fold behind his feet like i have seen on some sweet reshells. Right now I just popped on the arms from my cut up half finished custom.
    You might have also notice that i put a head from a wfc BB. I like this head more, It is a little bigger but still fits for transforming.
    I also plan on sanding the roof top flat and getting rid of the rear wing.
    and of course a paint job when done.....all c&c welcome

    Dude, this is great! I need to get my hands on an extra Bumblebee and one of those bots. Is it one of those oversized KOs?

    Looking forward to seeing more on this!
