    I didn't want to get stealth Bee since I already kinda modded my own masked movie Bumblebee (tho I based it on the render from the movie game site, see attached. It's basically got visible eyes and upright antennae).

    But the colours on the car mode are sweet, so when i saw the last one left on the shelf the immature collector in me grabbed it.

    I was kinda disappointed in the half-baked paint apps, so I decided to fix him up a little. I painted over as much yellow as I could, and added some silver detailing. The black REALLY helps. It even hides the bot parts better in car mode.

    i also decided to go for accuracy and swapped heads with my previous mod. The stealth head, however, needed a fair bit of repainting to match the actual movie version. The antennae and the "ear guards" were completely missing / painted grey. And there was some really bad splotchiness around the eyes / facemask.

    My old, non-movie accurate head mod also seems more at home on this body.

    still need to do some touching up. The weather's been incredibly hot and it's gotten hard to paint anything. The stuff starts to skin before I'm half done.:banghead:

    They look exactly the same as they do out of package. :lolol 

    Except you can no longer make out stealth bee's hands in his windows.

    I'm thinking of adding roof strips.
