    well heres my first attempt at a minor mod and a little repainting always welcome to C&C so tell me how i did. its movie goldbug in a more of the shattered glass look i took stockades head and sculpted the horns and head vents in the side may be hard to see. im thinking of going over all the yellow with the gold i got it looks pretty dapper. also i painted my CC BB for a more realistic look and added paint to the face. i also switched up bbs transformation to make em look different. and i would be lying if i didnt say the shattered glass one gave me insperation. updated with two new pics showing of what little i did to alt mode rims and gascap and the other is the finished product with the extra gold paint apps where all were yellow.

    that looks nice, but it seems just a tad bit big for that body.

    maybe its not really shattered glass but kinda the insperation for it also redline what do you mean the body's to big i can try alternate transformations i was thinking of one with both the doors folded behind his head like how the g1 one had the trunk behind his head. but i kept the chest down to make him different from BB. the story behind why i decided to make this is funny i was out looking for premie prime and BB and at target i saw these and i wanted the mask down head for my slightly repainted BB to make him more realistic.(btw what do you think of the regular bbs face paint job i did?) but i was just gonna wait for premie bb to come out around here. ive been looking at the botcon toys cause id like to get a set but dont have the cash. i saw this repaint and was like ahh ill wait then it popped in my head that that would look good as a gold bug. not sure if any of you have him the stealth bb but his front stripes are a goldish color in RL the back are the same old yelow but the fronts are gold. so i was not gonna buy him and was out of the store when the bash idea hit me. went back in got him and started the process i want to add more of the gold to like the yellow waist around the license plate. and other areas. also im open for more ideas if someone wants to give some. also redline and plowking you too saying commenting made my day cause you too are awsome at KBing.ill update when i add more gold.

    not by much thou i mean the head fits thru the opening for it with no problems im also doing viagra primes arcee and that head is bigger and with the pec hoods down it gives him that big upper body look. btw about to update pics with the extra gold added. i only did one thing to alt mode and that was the gas cap and rims in gold.

    id like to do the seeker team first thou im not sure which molds to use for rodimus and blurr. and i heard redoing a leader prime is a pain so i might use the voyager one go get a first strike so i dont have to deal with flames. jazz i dont have to do but ricochet maybe. the grimlocks been done just not in those colors might try it but it would be lower on my list so ne1 got ideads for rodimus and blurr

    ok i think i got who im gonna use for two more SG movie figs im gonna make sg blurr out of arcee maybe. and the old camaro BB for rodimus that is kinda what i was thinking ne1 else got some ideas on which movie figs would make good evil autobot seekers. im using the first strike prime for his movie SG. the other two im having trouble with grimlock will be cake just a repaint of longarm. and if i can get my hands on a target g1 scheme movie jazz ill use my old one as ricochet.megs im still cluless about who to use or just remake a head and repaint. starscream is the same just the movie figs make them look evil. sideswipe/drench i might use the the camshaft and make a new head. man once you start modding its hard to stop.

    Sweet. I can't way to see Grimlock! Screamer you could probably just repaint, as for Megs, I'd repaint Voyager Megatron, get rid of all the ice, sculpt over the icy wings, and maybe add a little detail to the head. And for Jazz, you could just make some decals that say "MASSACRE" and "KILL TO WIN". Good luck!
