    Some of these mods might not be to everyone's taste but it addresses a few things that bug me.

    I always found the "wasp thin" waist and the bulk of the wings a little off-putting so I moved the roof/windows to the back. The windows still fold up and the roof hugs the back quite nicely. I know it now gives BB a backpack but BB's torso is bulkier.

    The hands are on temporarily. I still need to completely remove the screw post and then the hand's ball joints will snap in snuggly. The hands stay on in car mode.

    The thing i'm scratching my head over is how to compress his chest even further in bot mode. And I would not mind a solution to the clod-hoppers he's wearing.

    Looks nice, very natural. Although I have to mention- Bumblebee only has three fingers in the cartoon, not four. Will you be painting this up?

    Actually, I did notice the lack of a pinkie, as opposed to Prime. I'll eithyer be cutting it down or just leaving it.

    I will be painting it up.

    Heh. Thanks. Just a few tiny mods though. Actually thinking of making some custom hands that have the three fingers and avoid the
    gorilla arms.

    Looks good. Which version of Bee is this? FE or RID? How does the mod effect his alt mode?

    thats some nice work you got going on there. dont know how this figure looks in person yet. i have the first edition one, but i did notice the joints on the doors are placed differently on this mold. not sure what to suggest to your predicament though. Seems like some hard stuff.
