    So after ordering a full wave of Reveal the shield wave 2 I got stuck with an extra Bumblebee I didn't need. I thought of trying to turn him in to Bumper or Hubcap but didn't have any ideas for heads.

    Today I looked up and Tomahawk was staring right at me. I looked at him and said "what are the odds that would fit?" It was a perfect fit!!

    I decided to just leave the head black 1. because it makes him look less like BB 2. I suck at color matching. I also swapped out some parts from a junker classics BB to help him differentiate him more from my Legacy BB I use on my classics shelf. Also on the plus side I never liked the wings on any version of this mold but I think they look great on Bumper

    Hmm, the only head I could think of that would do better would be the combiner head from the rallybot set.

    That works really well - the coloursheme, new head and Wave Crusher kinda make him look like a real daredevil - and considering how much characterisation he's had, maybe he is! :D

    I was going to do this for someone, but they didn't like the idea. I do think that it would look better painted yellow.

    I like the black head. It's the same color scheme as the body but just inverted. I say keep it like that.

    Very nice, very inspiring. If I did one, I would paint the head yellow, but it looks good the way you did it regardless.

    LOL Beat me to it. Everyone in the WA St. thread was picking this figure up to be their Classics Hubcap. I tried looking for a more proper Hubcap head and didn't come up with one. Took a look over at Bumper and knew immediately that Tomahawk's head would look the part.

    Glad to see it looks good, and the head is an easy swap.

    That's funny I have a movie 3-pack bumblebee with a Tomahawk head on him right now just because I like the head a lot and I had a spare. I have a custom sculpted head for Bumper but maybe I'll just paint the one I have

    Great idea btw!
