    I made this guy from a spare Henkei Bumblebee i got, and i've basically just altered the transformation a bit on the jetski/trailer accessory, and repainted the thing.

    It's got a few chips here and there, though, as i did this a year ago, when i was just starting out.

    Hope you like it!

    WOW, nice abstract use of a mold...

    ...but it creates a problem, how can he generate his electrical attach when he is insulated by the rubber tires???

    hahaha

    That's why in the pic only the inside edge of his feet actually touch the ground. The wheels never make contact. :lol 

    Thanks a lot Kalron!

    BB has got to be the last mold I would have ever thought of seeing Shrapnel out of.
    It works well, oddly enough.
    Although I would have liked to have seen a new or reworked head that's less BB.

    I am considering getting the robot heroes Shrapnel and ripping the head of of that, i just ain't that great with joints and the like.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    As for why i used BB, i thought, if you can make Bumblebee and Bugbite out of it, how hard can it be? :lol

    I agree about the head, and swapping with the Robot Heroes isn't a bad idea! Great job all around!:thumbs2:  Creative use for the jetski!

    Great job! DEFINITELY do the robot heroes head. Swapping heads can be a pain, but with practice, it is a very satisfying mod to perform.

    Very creative. Other that giving him a new like like others have said, I think he looks great. I love the jetski on his back to represent the insect wings.
