    I know the RtS Bumblebee is a good chance for people who missed the classics or repaints figure, but for some of us, it's another version of almost the same figure.

    I was recently re-reading my DW Transformers stuff, and had a quick idea.
    Has anyone thought about making a new head for the Classics Bumblebee mold, to make it into Bumper/Bumblejumper?

    For those with the skills it would be easy to create a new head that is compatible, and to make even more of a dfference from the Bumblebee mold, you can pop the spoiler off the car.

    Not sure about others who may have done one, but WheelJack did one for our Minibot Challenge at Sector70 back in 2009. It's definitely a great idea and I think I may plan one myself. I already had Classics Bumblebee & Classics Cliffjumper when I picked up the RTS BB. So I may use him for something like this.

    A local guy was suggesting using that to make hubcap as well. his yellow is more like that figure.

    Both of those are really good ideas.

    As awesome as Wheel_Jack's piece is, I think I may end up going the route of MegaHavok since I may end up with a spare head from a Tomahawk. That Whirl custom from that mold is quite enticing!

    At any rate, I have the Classics Bumblebee, and the redeco from the movie 3-pack. One of those will be my Bumblejumper!

    can Bumblebee hold Drift's sword?
    You can get a Kill Bill thing going on :)

    Has anyone tried using a Cybertron Crosswise head for Bumper?
    I think it would work very well.

    and how about repainting RTS Tracks' head yellow for Hubcap?
    Might not be the best match, but the red face and his forehead look like it could work.
