    well, when I'm seeing this guy for the first time I have decided I would buy him no matter what, despite I know that he is downgrade version of Battle Blade Bumblee. His Camaro SS mode is very neat in my eyes by having those wing on his back...

    I'm really happy when I saw this guy on the store around my house a month ago with a really decent price, so I'm taking him without thinking twice. The figure itself was not so disappointing despite of lacking battle mask feature, smaller than any other Bumblebee, and lacking of his plasma cannon weapon that replaced with Mechtech gun. (that can't even been locked on cannon mode @#$%*!)

    well, of course he is also lacking a lot of paint job from what it supposed to looks like in the movie, so I have to repaint him a lot just after a few hours I take him out from the box, though it need a month to complete the paint job b'cuz I have to find some resource as a paint reference.

    so, here is what he looks like after I'm repainting him to became a movie accurate Bumblebee. I hope I make a nice job for it. :) 

    note: his upper waist that connected to the crotch is misplaced backward, so I replace the two pieces (it's very easy, no need for ham hands to do it) & switch it to each other leg, with so he is more accurate to the cg & when transforming him the roof on his car mode can be neatly closed (though this might be just on my view)

    Now you're making me second guess my decision to pass on this figure.

    Very nice. You forgot the black rims, though. I actually consider this guy and upgrade from BBBB, for the simple fact that he's solid in both modes and has proper elbows and arm shields.

    yeah, I'm kinda consider to paint black the rims, but I'm more like the rims to have a bright silver color so I leave it like that. :D 

    the problem of Battle blade Bumblebee is he might be the best Bumblebee in robot mode, but in the vehicle mode he is kinda off somehow especially on the front side of the car...
