Hi! Classics Bumblebee used, with original G1 weapons. All enamel paints, satin and gloss with metallic silver and metallic green. I used the same deep purple as I used with SG Sideswipe. I think the purple works well, and matches the badge/logo. Transforms very smoothly. Drilled hole on the roof of the car, to hold the large gun/weapon. The weapon fully rotates, and holds very sturdy in the slot. When Bumblebee stands in robot mode, the gun can be attached in his hand, or attached to his back/roof part. No real reason for the sword, just liked the colour and it fit so well in the hand slot. I tried to get a grainy, rather heavy look to the windscreen, not so sure I like that now, but it's too late to change! Stratches, in various degrees, and bullet holes for battle damage look. Still not 100% about the bright orange lights, but thought it gave a little brightness to a rather dark, gothic character. One last thing regarding the large gun. I started with a small handgun, but wanted him to have lots of fire power and a large weapon to attach to the roof. After watching an early Transformers episode, when Cliffjumper has Megatron in his view finder with that big blaster/launcher my mind was made up!
