    I love the '76 version of bumblebee, but the robot mode was awkward at best. Decided to make some changes initially as proof of concept, he then evolved into a separate character.

    I modded the shoulders by cutting of a couple of tabs, this allows the pads to rotate forwards.
    The ankles were basically the same deal, kept removing tabs and other material until they could rotate. Then added a lego ball joint to build the new foot around.

    Had the idea of making them his mufflers.

    Love the look of 'primed' figures. BTW, his fists came from a tlk barricade.

    Modded the roof with a simple lego hinge. There was no room in the alt mode for much else...

    'Nice coat, mate'.

    Really wanted a 70's, dirty harry, vanishing point type feel to his character. Picked sideburn not just because he'
    Blue, but it sounds kinda 70's too...
    Hope you like.

    That’s awesome. Love all the little things you’ve don’t to make him differ from BB.

    Decided to revisit the feet...
    Started to pose them flatter to the ground than they are in the original pics which made them look quite big, so slimmed them down. Looks much better in alt mode, too.

    Before...

    ...and after.
