    Ok. Dun mind the crappy quality pictures. My camera's still at the service centre. Using my Nokia Handphone (Macro mode setting w/o flash). Hmm..Cant seem to enlarge my pictures for the display either. Also, will uploaded the Macross pictures in the non tf customs section for those who were asking earlier.

    That looks like a VERY smooth paintjob! Looks good, and can be Goldbug so no prob on that.

    And I was also stunned to find out Peter Falk has Alzheimer's. ;-)

    Wow - that gold emulates the Lawson's Bumblebee really well! Almost looks like you have the new Camaro version of the same exclusive. Nicely done.

    I'm going to be the voice of dissent here, and while as usual your technique and attention to detail is amazing, I really dislike that color for Bumblebee/Goldbug. I've seen a few golden BB's since the movie figures hit and I'm just not feeling that color, it's too gold flake for me, you know? Something a little more subtle, maybe a bit more skewed to the yellow/orange side than gold.

    That said, this is definitely one of the better representations of this kind of repaint, and your ability to get that much SHINE off your customs really makes me hate you! :D 

    Also, yeah, what'sup with that that Jetfire/Macross behind him?!!

    Very nice finish on this Sabrina, Bravo! I will echo the dislike of the color however, looks like how when I make an Iron Man custom and that's supposed to be gold. I am trying to figure out how to make my Sunstreaker custom not look gold and I am thinking a white mixed with silver and yellow on top might do the trick, either that or just adding pearl pigments to the yellow from the get go. Color aside I still cant wait to see the bot mode. :thumbs2:

    Highly skilled paint-job as usual :) 
    It's just doesn't say "Bumblebee" to me though.

    btw, did you buy a mask yet? You seriously don't want to be breathing that crap in, much less on a semi-consistent basis.


    How about instead of white mixed with silver you try a pearl white and top coat that with clear yellow?

    ^ that's a good suggestion. Or if you have an airbrush, a pumpkin orange over the pearl white.

    I need to get my airbrush set up again, damnit. :)

    Sabs old bb looks great, can't wait to see the robot mode. Will it have the battle mask or the regular head.
