    After getting the new Bumblebee figure, I thought I would paint him up too and pose him with the other 2 customs I have. So here are the '76 Camaro, the ROTF Camaro, and the new HFTD Bumblebee.

    Very cool! I think HFTD BB's head is was does it for me, and no roof panels on the forearms.

    I love the pictures. Well done. I wish I could get those jet black backgrounds. Sigh.

    I have enjoyed following your work.

    Nice.

    I never noticed, the new BB has a thinner waist than the previous one.

    These are excellent. If I had one gripe, it's that the Battle Blades BB Head is the most accurate sculpt to date, has the light piping eyes and retractable faceplate, and each of your BB's would be improved by using it. It looks like you even used an older BB head for yours. Otherwise, great work!

    I agree about the head. I wanted to use the Premium head because it looks kind of friendlier. I have more pics of the HFTD BB and post those later.

    They do look friendlier. Kinda like a Pug or a Bulldog. :)

    BTW, what paint are you using for the yellow? I'm staring at mine looking to touch it up. I've already done the cannon.

    Oh yeah! The only down side with the head is that I have to pop it off and on for transformation. I could sand the sides a little to fit through the hood.

    It's custom. I mixed red and yellow until I got a pretty close match.

    Not to shabby Solrac. I would have kept the BBBB Head on it's body and used the extra one for the RotF body as well, lol.

    Actually, I gave the extra BBBB head to my Premium BB :)  Now he's MORE Premiumy.
