    A never-die movie character, Bumblebee. He looks really detailed for this Leader Class, especially the chest piece and so on, a fun fig to display as Bot mode since it's gonna be too a bulky car if transformed.

    Custom Details:

    - Lifted and ball joint neck
    - Modified rotatable wrist so now he is fully poseable there
    - Custom Paint with "Special Mix" of yellow which will make him look orange in dimmer light while will be yellow in brighter light
    - Realistic paint chip on bot mode to create realism
    - Realistic wear and tear on mech part
    - Realistic gloss + Crisp and clean on Alt mode.
    - Highly detailed with acrylic and enamel
    - He is transformable (remove the attachable head and wrist to do so), but I do recommend you to play him as a collectible or display him, since transforming him repeatedly will cause unneccessary paint rub.

    Toby, this is absolutely MINT and really slick but I think you should've gone either all clean and slick OR all dirty and battle ridden. I don't think you balanced it out enough as some parts are totally clean while others are not. The face of the car would take the brunt of the chipping and exposure to wear and tear as not only the front of the car during pursuits causing debris and dust/rocks blazing away but also it's the main armor during hand to hand combat in bot mode. Just my 2 cents - take it as you may :)

    I love- LOVE- the slight wear-and-tear, the scuffed edges and whatnot. Absolutely realistic, what a great job. I've got to work up the guts to mix up some paint to add some details to mine, but I'm a lost cause at painting. Gotta start somewhere tho.

    What a beautiful piece, congrats.

    >chipped and worn paint in robot mode
    >glossy ass car mode with no flaws

    Yep, that's completely accurate to the movies alright.

    And if anyone's wondering, I'm not being sarcastic. Great custom!

    Thank you robowarrior!! I'm planning to do the Damage ver. of him!!

    Thanks SonOfNemesis!! But I intentionally make it this way. Thanks!

    Thank you that you appreciate those effects I gave!!!

    Thanks OMEGAPRIME!! Thanks!

    Thank you Prometheum!

    Thanks! Great you could dig into those gloss paint since yellow is kinda hard to see the "gloss" effect.

    Thank you Xaddion, that was my intention. :)

    I've seen a couple, but this one IS nice! I like the shine factor of it, it has that slick wet look.
