    Okay, so here's HA Bumblebee, the next of my "Final Battle" figures (first being Megatron, seen here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/253922-rotf-final-battle-megatron.html)

    The first thing I did was the leg mod, which makes the figure look that much better (thank to len_d69 and everybody involved with this thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/243649-human-alliance-bumblebee-leg-mod.html)

    I didn't mess with the outer shell paint job, I primarily focused on the robot bits and little cases of "battle damage" here and there. And, of course, I created a fire-blast effect. For whatever reason, the blast effect just wasn't coming off like I liked, I couldn't really get anything to "click" so I just stuck with this one.

    For the bot-bits, I used Liquid Leaf silver argent, then did some light dry brushing with copper to simulate the dirt & grime from battle. After that, I used the sanding edge from a dremel to create the "scars" from his fight with Ravage, and did slight dry brushing with black & copper to fill in the details.

    Custom Ravage courtesy of Frenzy_Rumble, GREAT figure!

    EDIT: Thanks to Encline, I figured out how to transform after the leg mod, so vehicle pics are now added!

    As always, comments & critiques are welcomed.

    Thanks guys. :thumbs2: 

    I took his missle and just put the glue effects onto it, so you still just insert it like you would do to the missle and it's nice and secure. No need for magnets or anything like that.

    Make a custom being-ripped-apart Ravage to display him with.

    You really should've painted the yellow, though. It looks weird next to all the custom painted plastic and looks just a little unfinished.

    Blame Michael Bay!! Nothing happened to 'Bee in the sequel except for a few kitty-cat scratches, although I did think about partially melting a wheel to simulate a flat tire, lol.

    All I had on me was regular bright yellow, what's a good color that you (or anybody) would suggest?

    As for Ravage, I actually thought of that on the way to work this afternoon. You may see "Final Battle" Ravage (or what's left of him) by the weekend.
