    Custom DOTM Leader jetwing Bumblebee made after the classics jetwing bumblebee. Movie bumblebee is a great fighter just imagine him coming in from the sky lol change the head cause I didnt like the look but i still have the original just in case. Kinda heavy in the back with the metchtech and wings plus batteries but it still can stand, added a new add on cannon on the arm just to make it a bit thicker.

    This is really cool!! I'm really digging the new head, I can totally picture this 'Bee having a whole lot to say when he lands on the battlefield!! Nice work.

    lol i had just thought a few days ago about how that would look. nice job. if i may make a suggestion, why not add some more blockyness to the stomach? this DOTM look seems a bit too organic for the g1 head. I think if there was some sort of stomach armor type deal and maybe on the arms too, to simulate the g1 look a bit more, it would further bring out the dark look your going for. Achieve supremacy :) 
    you definetly nailed the idea though.

    That's a good idea i didnt think of that, i actually wanted a movie like head but not the stock head that came with the figure, I wanted to create my own version of the movie bumblebee head but didnt work out.lol. So I went with the alternator one. Im thinking on recreating this figure again using the battle ops Bumblebee figure so Im gonna try your idea. Thanks again for the tips :)

    looks great.

    I would love to see more jet part around the body and limbs like on the Jetwing Optimus Prime... Thats only my thought though.
