    HA Classic Camaro Bumblebee (WIP)

    I got this Oversized Classic Camaro last week from Chimunmung, quality aside, overall im pretty satisfied with him (Read my review here). Last pic shows a comparison with the real figure when i got it

    So anyway, i had to make some adjustments, first made the toe & arm piece mods from my first custom of the real thing. Then i re-added a pseudo auto morph with the headlights, also i cut the waist and added a ball joint (since there´s no gears or anything inside like the original)

    Right now, im re-sculpting the head, and i may repro HA BB battle mask just to put it on this one for detail (although it wont move). Another option is to get an extra HA Head from anyone that canibalized arms and hands...

    Hands will be changed, might be articulated, detail added and all the car panels (mainly doors and windshield), will be re-inforced with styrene and epoxy, since they are extremely thin and could break anytime

    I wont attempt to make it more accurate to the CGI model, since im satisfied with the Deluxe design, but some details here and there will be included (like inner door panels like the real car). After everything is worked out, all the pieces will be primed, painted and then faded out :D

    I've seen a lot of those oversized bootleg BBs over here in my country as well. Can't wait to see this finished. :)

    Thats something I would love to!, however there´s two problems, first Modern Bumblebee got different robot mode details different from the Classic Camaro (but i think that could be fixed by resculpting these)

    And second, im not sure if there´s a 1:24/1:25 modelkit of the Classic Car, i was able to find a 1:24 79´model, but then again, i dont know how different could be (i guess minor differences, but who knows?)

    Update!

    I modified BB feet so he has his "heels", and obviously the feet ended smaller. Once painted should look good, but of course im gonna add more detailing

    While using an exacto to remove some extra plastic, i managed to cut my middle finger... needed 4 stitches.. Ouch!

    Also, glued the arm armor to the doors, im going to build the inner panels out of styrene and make more accurate armor if there´s enough space in vehicle mode

    This is going to be great when finished. I suspect the inner door armor also strengthens the poor quality plastic too correct?
