    So I was out in the back yard today taking pictures of the kids when I saw this huge green wasp on the tree!
    I started snapping off pics but it noticed me. I thought it was about to fly off but instead it transformed into a little robot!!
    I ran like hell!!

    Great work, but I absolutely HATE your figure. I am scared to death of wasps. Seriously it gives me the creeps. :)

    That's Vesperus, from the Legends of Nara Metomorphs line. They're cheapy bug transformers. Personally, I use mine as a Vespiform to terrorize my Tenth Doctor and Donna.

    Used a Metamorph bug I found at Wal-mart. I nabbed the Black Widow too. Might make her Blackarachnia but that will take a lot more sculpting work.
    For this Waspy, I did some sculpting on the head then it was all repaint.

    Waspinator was always a favorite of mine. Wonderful paint job, before I saw the thread I didn't think it transformed because it looked so real.

    Thanks guys. It was a quicky job in the middle of a few bigger projects. Glad you like him.
    I'll slap him on the Ebay today.
