    Credits to savio-prime for the mods and inspiration. Unlike savio's mine is very basic.

    Here are the mods:

    1) Ball jointed wrist
    2) Shorten the car hood
    3) Yellow bits if the calf is now on balljoint
    4) Used savio's earlier feet mod, now he is taller.

    And...I removed the Blaster and the Blades. Just personal preference. That's all, no special reason why.

    Some touch ups and he is done.

    Thanks for looking.

    Before anyone ask, yes he still transformable.

    It doesnt suck dude, its great! Not sure why theres no comments...maybe because people are spoiled by BB customs like the one Savio did so a regular BB BB repaint doesnt do it for them anymore?
    Meh, dont let it get ya down, i think its great.

    Probably right. Savio's custom is a tough act to follow. I only did like 1/8 of the total mods he made for BBBB.

    Thanks for the word of encouragement.

    I think garibaldiprime is right on the money here. I've had threads before where I'm thinking "what the heck?" to the number of replies. Sometimes it's timing, too. Add to the fact that it's not sat too long for views and comments to compound. Radicons is a very busy place. Honestly, I haven't had time to check out everything I've wanted to simply because I've been busy this weekend myself.

    I really like all of the modifications you've done here. The weathering you've done is just right. I think you've got yourself a great custom piece for your collection now. I'd like to see some alt mode photos as well, especially since you said you shortened the hood. What about the hood was bothersome?

    You really took the best Bumblebee deluxe we've gotten thus far and amped it up. :thumb

    The changes you made is what the figure should have been like from the start. Very cool. I like the arms a lot.

    What's the feet mod?

    Sweet work on the gauntlets! Thanks for the props as well, and yours looks real lean and athletic... great job! Is that autobot logo on his helmet paint detailed or a sticker/decal?
