    another simple fix to a G1 character.

    using the 3-pack Bumblebee, I tossed a modified Rid Wedge head on him. Also added a few paint apps , and removed the black stripes on his hood.

    Really cool head mod. That paint looks very clean. Did you repaint the yellow?

    Thanks guys, I only repainted the roof. it was a different color than the rest due to it being painted. so I matched the color.

    From the side view, looking at the windows, it sort of reminds me of my very first car. A 1972 Honda Z Coup. But the front and back are way off. What kind of car is this supposed to be? Real car or cartoon car? Anyway, look's cool!

    Looks just like the toy that I pretended was Bubblebee when I was a lad. Only much nicer.

    Wow, that's a sweet Hubcap. The head works really well.

    Wasn't Hubcap's face red or orange or something? :)

    The base bot looks familiar :D 

    Excellent work as always :thumb  I'm really digging the head, especially. I can't remember when Hubcap had more personality :)

    Don't you mean "I can't remember when Hubcap had personality." ? ;) 

    He's got to be one of the most underused G1 Autobots ever, doomed to eternal obscurity behind Bumblebee and Cliffjumper. Heck, even Glyph and Bumper get more attention!

    I'm glad to see him. I always liked it that the Autobots had their very own sycophantic con artist. :)
