    Finally figured out what to do with this guy. DOTM Goldbug. Made from the DOMT Bumblebee figure and swapped arms with the ROTF Canon Bumblebee and swapped head with DOTM Jolt. I like the arms because they look beefy and the do not affect transformation. Just have to tuck them in a little. Gave him a flat black base coat then dry brushed with silver and aluminum also with some brass, gold and copper for high lights and then some gun metal and blue for the head. For the car mode, sprayed gold brilliant and then a clear gloss finish.

    That looks sweet! I would have went with a different color on the rims to break up the colors a bit more.

    I hear you. I never tried gold rims so I figure I'll try it this time.

    Pretty car mode! The Jolt head being blue kinda makes it look like Jolt's head on BB, but then, Jolt's head didn't look anything like that in the movie so it still works.
