    This is my first custom, Achilles. The name only make sense to those who know me. I thought it would be a good idea to make an original character 1st to get the hang for customizing. But Achilles is a simple recolor and head swap of a RTS Bumblebee. The head is from a Deluxe Armada Optimus Prime and the gun is from Marvel Legends Blade that has been attached to the handle of Cybertron Scattorshot's gun. He fits into my story as Bumblebee's brother who lives to hunt Decepticons.

    This is my 1st custom, so I am welcoming to any and all critics. I prefer constructive criticism, but if the 7th grader in you cant stop himself from tearing me down about actions figures made for Ages 5 and up, so be it; I'm a big boy I can handle it. If you like what you see, I have a list of characters that I plan to begin working on soon that you can keep an eye out for.

    For those interested my list of future customs(with there base figure) is as followed:
    Shattered Glass Bumblebee (RTS Bumblebee – with many weapons added)
    Classics Cliffjumper (RTS Bumblebee – with WFC Cliffjumper Head and BFG)
    Frostbite – original character – Ice themed Decepticon (WFC Cliffjumper body with Generations Kup head)
    WFC Ironhide (WFC Soundwave – Universe Ironhide head and BFG plus some physical change to the figure)
    Shattered Glass Optimus Prime (KO Classic Optimus Prime)
    3 seekers (Generations Thundercracker), all original characters

    Thanks For Looking!

    I dig it a lot. My only criticism, if you can even call it that, is I think it would look even better with some shading to bring out the details. I'm a fan of weathering, but that's just me. Still amazing job. =)

    Nemesis Bumblebee? Would that really be an Autobot?

    Kidding aside, good first custom!

    "gun is from Marvel Legends Blade that has been attached to the handle of Cybertron Scattorshot's gun"

    but I agree the gun looks great, and I might be interested in a casting of it.
