    Well guy... I bought a complete HA MOVIE COLLECTION...
    and the person only had lowress pics...

    Today I received the package and got all the items in 110%minty..

    He told me there was a custom Blue BB that I got for free,
    that's where I wanted to change him into Cliffjumper...

    But things turned out unexpected...
    The pics do the talking!! :D 

    I don't know his name anymore and don't even have his email address etc.

    But I'm going to perfect his work by detailing and modding the rest..

    THE STARING CREDITS GO TO... "the unknown customizer"

    UPDATE:
    -Easy leg mod
    -blue, black & gold accents and detailing

    TODO:
    seriously considering red racing stripes or flames...
    only problem the quality will probably not match the superb blue paint :( 

    (maybe red stripes or decal stickers or wash-on decal)

    2nd question is there anybody who can make wash-on if I supply the right formats in vectors or eps/psd etc.?

    wow the paint looks pretty slick, cept for the interior bitz but that stuff can be had with a brush. Nice haul btw i wish they had pulled all the stops and gone 1:18 scale but that hasnt stopped me from trying to cram my Joes in the cockpits anyway.

    Nice custom, but wrong subforum, Cause radicons is only for selfmade customs, so this is for General discussion my friend :)

    Cool man, try to contact him about what blue he used so you can match it perfectly for touch ups if needed.

    Maybe use a knife or something to make sure the paint between the pads and legs aren't connected.

    I agree with Toa, make sure they are not adhered together with the paint. How are they connected? Pins or screws?

    Very nice! This reminds me of my first Camaro - it was almost the same color blue, but with silver ground effects and hood scoops(ah the 80's).

    a custom is a custom, the man plans on working his own magic with the Blue Stinger there.
    he even stated this, he may not have started it, but he will finish, i'm sure...I would, you almost have to.

    Whoever did this did a pretty nice job. If I were you, I would change the head. Rid Prime just doesn't look all that good on it. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

    This is correct, so now we're here in Creative General Discussion, the place where we discuss customs we bought or received from others :)

    I like the blue with the yellow rims. But I'd stay away from the race-car graphics.
    I'd like to see where this leads to and ultimately finished product. But, I think he needs a different name. Bumblebee has always ben yellow, and without Bumblebee's head, he's no longer Bumbelbee. Perhaps he's now Bluestreak?
