    So, finding myself in possession of 3 Bumblebees (Premium Bumblebee, Preview Bumblebee, and Cannon Bumblebee), I decided to make a best of both worlds and combine Preview Bumblebee with Premium Bumblebee.

    So, here's what I did:
    1) Replace Premium Head with Preview Head.
    2) Replaced Premium Arms/Legs/Lower Torso with Preview Arms/Legs/Lower Torso
    3) Replaced Preview Roof with Premium Roof
    4) Replaced Preview rear quarterpanels, rear bumper, and any other yellow parts with Premium yellow parts.
    5) Replaced Preview wheels on feet with Premium wheels.

    I'll be adding some Steel and Brass to it via painting and dry brushing, but he looks real nice, and is definitely my favorite Bumblebee.

    If you have spare arms left over, have you considered crafting a replacement right arm for him?

    I like the cannon arm. I mean, the arm and the head are the reasons why I did this. Preview and Premium use different colored plastics.

    Well, I meant more like a switchable version. Unscrew the cannon arm, slide it out, slip in a standard hand, like that. I was under the impression he came with one anyway.

    I suppose you could fashion something for him, but it'd just be easier to reassemble the arm and pop off the new one whenever you wanted to change it.
