    try to retool the head and make it Wheelie, or make your own SG Wheelie based of the movie one.

    hmm, i liiike the idea of runabout and runamuck.. buut, i only have one bb.
    and for bumber, idk how id make the head look more like it. the way the neck is causes lack of a swap. so id have to mod it big time to fix that and im not sure.
    i was also hoping for a character of a different color sceme. i might to just one of the runa... and maybe look for another bb.

    but give me more ideas of characters of a different color

    Getting another Act BB for the Runa brothas wouldn't be too hard, still pretty easy to find around my area. Try painting it white first and if you don't like it for one of those guys make it into Bugbite

    I like the Wasp and Glyph idea too

    While you're at it you should try this mod if you like it. I did it to both BB and my CJ. It makes their arms look better

    im thinkin of doin the runabouts buuut im not sure about the head. it seems like i would have to too much moding to the head and im not too good at moding heads.

    but bugbite sounds pretty good actually!!

    and that arm mod, i dont like it at all haha. makes the arms look to bulky sorta.

    Yeah the head wouldn't match those guys so I think Bugbite is the way to go. The Cons seem to always be behind in numbers anyways

    Funny thing about that arm mod. I loved the way it looked on my BB but when I did it on Cliffjumper it seemed wrong, odd being that they are the same mold. I did just recently paint the sort of fingerless black gloves on them and it helps the hands stand out when looking at the all one colored arm section. Did the same on my Legends BB as well as his arms, not the easiest thing to paint I gotta say but worth it
