    Awesome paintwork here. Very cleanly done and nice touch on the details. :thumb :

    Comparing this to the shots of the new Leader BB, the HA version seems to have much better proportions overall. I don't understand why Hasbro decided to release BB in Leader scale.

    Thanks mampy!!

    I agree with you on the Leader BB. I was kinda hoping for a new character, such as Blackout/Grindor or The Fallen. Too much BB... =(

    From what I've heard, Ldr BB will be actually SMALLER than HA BB (in scale with LDR Prime) and have much nicer articulation and electronic gimmicks

    This is a great repaint too. Got a HA BB I need to repaint/customize this week!

    Are you serious?! Why even bother with producing it, then?



    Great paint job on this custom, very seamless!

    Thanks frenzy_rumble, I have always like your works. ^^
    Ah... please paint yours soon!! I have been wondering all this while but haven't seen you paint one HA BB. Your works inspires me to do my own but still can't compare with yours. Hope i can do better in future.

    and thanks payton34 for the compliments. A Leader BB that is smaller than HA BB..? Oh my....

    Well, unsure the actual size, however was told LDR is "in scale with leader prime" which, from what I can tell would be about or slightly smaller than HA BB.

    Sweet custom! The leg mod really works wonders on HA Bumblebee. :thumbs2: 

    Maybe they just meant he is the same size as Leader Prime?
