    When I saw at last the '08 Camaro Bumblebee, I had to buy it. It was the Allspark empowered version, so I had to remove all the stupid baby blue. Then I detailed the whole body and made him a weapon, a modern missile shoulder. I used a minicon and a piece from (you'll never guess it) a windshield wiper. Crazy, but it worked. It even has an infrared visor.

    I know it isn't original, but I hope you like it. I absolutely love it, and the new missile launcher it's perfect. Man, I can stop playing with him.

    Thank you very much. The only thing I dislike about this figure is the bad QC. The paint on the doors is not applied right, and the automorph gimmick on the chest fails every time. And, of course, the baby blue, but that was easy to fix.

    Seriously, I can't stop playing with him. Now I have to improve my Barricade a bit to recreate some battles between them.

    Have I said I love this figure?

    Well, I love this figure.

    Looking real good, man!! I keep eyeballing that BB 3-pack at Walmart thinking :Cliffjumper, detailed movie Bee, and fodder for an animated bash! Now I gotta grab it and go for it! I really like the shoulder launcher with the viewfinder, awesome little detail! Aside from QC issues, it really is a great figure and I wouldn't be able to put it down either after your improvements!:thumbs2:

    Thank you very much, guys. Now I'm thinking of give him the battle mask. I have to find something at the toy shop first. Wish me luck.
