    Ok. So the idea isnt for movie accuracy. Movie accuracy would be just orange yellow. Metallic orange yellow however may seem goldish but so be it. I still prefer the original mold as this looks kinda clumsy. But in anycase, introducing ROTF Bumblebee in metallics.

    looks awesome, though I don't think he's transformed properly, the chest should unfold a bit and the doors should fold in toward the middle of the back and up like bee wings sorta. love the metallics though.

    Nope, you're thinking of the BB that's more popular. This is Cannon BB. His upper torso transformation isn't designed for as much accuracy as the other one.

    i a real big fan of your work, but this and some of the last ones are much to gloss, sorry.

    on universe, animated and other seriees it fits perfectly, but not really on movie, sorry sabrina :(

    Awesome paint application, but I think many agree when I say the Cannon Bumblebee is inferior to the 'regular' ROTF Bumblebee, are you gonna do a version of him too?

    I think this looks BEST on the movie figures because it fits in. The vehicle mode looks fantastic.

    But wow, I didn't know Cannon Bumblebee was so horribly gimpy-looking in design.

    you've mastered painting. i love seeing it. but i wish you would have used a more "yellow" color. right now, the car kind of looks copper-ish. i think a bright yellow with some metallic flake would really make a nice bumblebee. you can make it "sparkle". i wish i could paint those tiny parts gold and blue as well as you did.

    gah, never even knew that rofl...mine's still in the "rotf box, haven't TF'd him much. Though, I think it would be awesome to take the arms and shoulder canons from this one and merge them into the other ROTF one.

    Looks great! Don't think I'll get the figure just for the canons but you made it look great! Should the "Camero" on the side be silver?

    What about just using the lower arms? The upper arms are horrid as is anyways.

    they do fit, i just got it today, but transforming would need some work, i do not know how they fit in the vehicle mode. i bought it only to see if i can use it for parts with the other bees out there.

    I think it looks great in car or bot mode.
    I would be proud to call your paint job one of my own.
    I really like the way bot mode came out. :) :thumbs2:
