    So, Robot Heroes Movie 'Bee had this atrocious, little nub of a head. no detailing or anything.. I don't know why they did that to such a cool little toy, but I, uh, undid it not too long ago..

    These guys are so cute! I think he needs pupils or something, the eyes are kind of scary.

    While the painted details look fantastic, the head looks creepy. The components on the head combined with the pop-out eyes and honrs/antenna make him look like a bug. And not in a pun/humourous/cute way. It's just my opinion, but I prefered the old head and it's rounded cuteness. It had plenty of detail.

    The sculpting is amazingly clean, though. And the paint turned out great! Did you sculpt over the old head or start from scratch? Also just minor crit: the inside panels of the legs really should be silver, but that's minor and barely noticable.

    I like the buggy look myself. This is great... pupils could either make or break this figure, so it's a tough call.

    I've been wanting to add antennae to mine too, but the default head looks so much like Megaman I'm torn...

    Yeah, I kind of wanted him to look a little buggy :p . I might fix the little silver bits at the base of his horns to look a bit more square, but I dunno. I was so enamored with the cutesy little super-deformed bugface that I just left them that way and went straight into finalizing it.

    Anyway, that is the original one that I did, but I did go on to mold and cast that head. I just haven't gotten around to cleaning it up and swapping it out yet. Also, I haven't seen 'Bee again in my area since I bought that one... :/

    Split Lip, which panels need to be silver? That, I can fix in about ten seconds..
