    Well, I finished my first custom. I used a yellow scrapmetal and switched the head with an extra Coby's Ramble head from the kit I got at the Botcon Customizing class. I based the color off of Classics Bumblebee. I decided to put him with my Pre-BW figures from Botcon and name him Stinger. He's still Bumblebee, but he's grown and matured since leaving Earth and starting to work with the Maximals. Not a masterpiece of customizing, but I'm pleased. What do you all think?

    The cockpit yellow parts look like they could use another coat, other than that, he looks great, the new paint-job on the head + windshield is great.
    Unfortunately, I myself cant see the Bumblebee in the Scrapmetal mold, it looks too evil for Bumblebee, maybe Goldbug?
    Still, I like it!

    Cool concept, and my first thought upon seeing it was "that's Bumblebee!". :)

    can anyone tell me how big the head is in relation to say, alt grimlock or alt prime's head. The look is perfect for a custom I'm working on, but it may be a bit to small.

    It's way too small for an Alt.

    The head was used only in Japan for Coby's Ramble which came with the Fire Guts Sonic Convoy giftset from TRU. Getting it in addition to the regular Ramble head for the Customizing class at Botcon was a nice treat.

    I know someone mentioned not seeing the mold as Bumblebee and possibly Goldbug would be more appropriate. So, since I didn't post his bio at first, here it is.

    "Rumored to have once served under Optimus Prime on Earth, Stinger works with the Maximals maintaining order and peace. Stinger excells at spying though he seems happiest when protecting those who can't defend themselves. At the mention of Earth or humans, Stinger often gets a look in his eyes of fond memories tainted with loss. Transforms into all terrain tank with a Cyber Sting cannon. Tank also has a hover mode. In robot mode can wield Cyber Sting Cannon as well as Sting Sword.

    Ok, it's Bumblebee, but I wanted to set him in the BW universe so he could go with my Botcon set since I already have a Classics BB. I hope you guys like him. Offer and comments or constructive criticism. I might add some small details here and there, but he's more or less done. Personally, I'm pleased with him. Here's the link to my photobucket account for more pics of him." - copied from my original post on the Transformers Club forum. I was too lazy yesterday to post the bio every where else.

    I like it!

    BTW, did you know there's a custom transformation for Scrapmetal/Ramble where you could turn it into jet mode? Not exactly War Within/Cybertronian Bumblebee, but still....

    Awesome! :thumb  I wish I had an extra Scrapmetal to make a kitbash. And the kitbashing skills to do it...and the skills to remold the face. :(
