    I know it isn't the most creative idea out there, but after hearing that the Alt line is essentially dead made me realize I have holes on my Alt team that need to be filled in another way. The first in the line is none other than Bumblebee.

    He is pretty much a straight repaint of Jazz. However, I filed and puttied the head until I had what I wanted for my interpretation of Alt Bumblebee.

    Well here's he is. He still isn't completely done: I am still unsure on whether or not to add a mouth, I still need to deside what I want to do about the faction symbol(s), The Mazda logo need to be added to the hood, his head needs a spot of dull coat (IMO), And his weapon needs to be finished.

    No alt modes for right now because the paint is curing, but he is fully transformable- all his touch points are filed down, and sealed if need be. Car mode will show off his shiny, new metallic black shoes too.

    **UPDATE** Car pics are now posted on page 2. THANKS for stoppin' in.

    WHOA ! ! !
    Super smooth paint ! details are tight ! ! !
    Great head mod, looks a little like my Alt. Rampage RX-8 - filled in the holes where the visor was - this is the way it should be done. -

    What did you use for paint ? Fusion ? Primer/Testors ?

    Thanks for the kind words. I used Tamiya for plastic sprays, and Tamiya brush on acrylics for the details. The head is all emory board work, sanding, and super sculpey.
