    Hey Tfans,

    I recently picked up the new deluxe mold of Batleblade Bumblebee.

    Unscrewed the right arm blaster and noticed the holes are the same as Human Alliance BBs forearms (if you removed the seats).

    So (you guessed it) I installed them into HA BBs forearms and they fit!

    I never liked the seats on his arms and I'm not a fan of the human figures.


    I'll eventally pick up another one to have a matching set of dual blasters on my HA fig.

    TRU has a sale on now. Buy one get one 50% off. How can we go wrong?

    Isn't the BB in the pic just the Battle-Blade BB?

    Craptastic pics...

    Hey,

    Here are three quick pics so you get the gist of it.

    If you want the blaster to flip out, all you need to do is shave off two corners of the grey bar that is pinned to the yellow blaster head.

    But I just want to give my HA BB some beefier arms with the yellow forearm shields...

    It converts just fine, too. As the HA figures and seats were originally designed to fit inside...

    Oh, and one final note. The yellow is a tad brighter than my HA BB which has a light orange to it. But it's not really noticable unless you knew they were two different fig parts...

    Hope you enjoy it!

    Once I buy my second BB BB half off, I'll update with twin blasters!

    Unless one of you beats me to it! Ha!

    ...now if only HA BB had two hands - or for that matter, if only they'd figured out we wanted all HA figs to have 2 hands before they got to the HA twins & SS...

    Oh wow, that looks pretty decent actually... surprisingly... why wasn't this done to begin with?!? I know I know "we wanted to integrate humans into the transformation, blah blah blah"

    No HA?

    That's a shame, they are the next best thing now that Alternators are canceled...

    The HA BB is the best of the bunch IMO.

    And with this mod, he's even better!
