    Sorry but with that head he looks kind of like Bumblebee had a Soundwave head transplant. Good luck with your auction though

    I agree, but still you did a good job making Bumblebee into Goldbug.

    I like the idea, but this doesn't feel like a finished custom to me. The parts you added on are nice, but without proper detailing they don't quite grab me. I'm not seeing any gold on Goldbug either; the deluxe Bumblebee figure is one of the easier ones to disassemble for painting. I'd suggest trying out a few different rattle-can paints on him, and then hand-brush the details. Simply recoloring the bumper from Landmine would add nice touch. Even if you just paint the lights white.

    Good start, though.

    I agree. He needs to be gold or else he's just yellow bug. The only thing about him that says Goldbug to me is his head. I would take him off of eBay for now and paint him. You can always relist the figure.

    the head isn't horrible, i think the paint on it could be a little cleaner.

    i've been wanting to do this but can't find a good head. if only someone would cast the shattered glass goldbug head.

    Generally, I like it too. You have shown that this mold- IMO- works better as a Goldbug than it does Bumblebee. But I agree with others that this could be finished more.
