    Found a junker FE BB in one of my spare parts cache and had an extra Classics Cliffy head. The mod is simple, swap the head (with some modification on the back of the head and gave him proper fists that rotates.

    I am in the midst of masking the clear parts and waiting for my primer and other colors to come in. If I am lucky, I will have him ready by tomorrow.

    Credits goes to aledromo where this kitbash is inspired from :D 

    Thanks for looking.

    EDIT: 4/20/2012 - With better pics.

    How did you get the head to stay on? I couldn't make it fit when i tried this as an IDW Bumblebee.

    Simple really, I used the back part of the original FE BB head and glued the front part of the Cliffy head. There will be gaps, so I shaved down some parts until it fits.

    Edit the first posts with credits to you, since you are the one tht came out with the idea first :thumb

    Yeah, if I can get my hands on another FE BB, I would like to try this too. I love the look.

    Does it transform with that head? Because if it does, I would totally do this.

    It absolutely does transform just fine with the new head, I did this to mine a while back. Another thing I would point out is that the RTS bumblebee head matches the NYCC Cab Bumblebee's coloration perfectly, so that's another route one could take. You can just strip the taxi lettering off the side with alcohol (but you'd probably have better luck just repainting the black parts if you're so inclined).

    Updated in the first page. Damn, the yellow is one difficult color to spray and paint.

    Still 50% to go, he is only halfway there.

    There seems to be some blotches of paint on the chest, need to sand that later and respray.

    Rather good. That head doesn't look bad on him.

    Thanks. The only thing is the wonky proportions TFP BB has on his arms, otherwise it works perfectly.

    Anyways, clearer pics uploaded on the first page.

    Beautiful, my friend. I am looking forward to the completion of this project. I also have something interesting cooking with this mold. I like it a lot.

    If anyone did this with IDW Bee's head, I'm looking for pics.
