    Hello everyone this is my first post and I'm a newcomers here but not the the world of customizing and modeling.

    I was wondeing if anyone knows what scale the movie figures are in particularlly the New 08-09 Bumblebee.

    I thinking about a attempt to kitbash him into a movie Rodimus or Hot Rod. Painting the body that megenta red like color and using a head from wreckage.Then find the right decals for flames and use reprolabels for insignias and what not.

    So if anyone could give a idea or guess on the scale these toys are it would be greatly appreciated.

    I think they're something close to 1/32nd scale. I think if you get Rodimus Prime or Hot Rod reprolabels, that'd be pretty close to what you need.

    I can't tell you for certain, as I have yet to get my hands on the 09 bumblebee :redface2: , but assuming he's close to scale with barricade he would be 1/32. barricade is pretty accurately 1/32.

    as for other figures....

    Leader prime is 1/25.

    Ironhide is somewhere between 1/35 and 1/32

    hope that helps.

    Not sure about the others. havn't checked.

    Thanks for the insight on the other figures Cody and thanks for the Bumblebee one Convoy.

    My next question should I use water-slide or rub ons and seal them afterwards? I'd hate to do a water slide and have it shift , or a rub on and have it flake off.

    I can't say for sure about others because I haven't checked, but Prime is definitely NOT 1/25 scale. I have a MASK Rhino that is 1/24 scale and Prime is off by more than 1. He's only about 1/30 scale.
