Enough shameless plugging now, ha ha. A little backstory on the T-B.U.G. T - B.U.G. was a project started by Cyberdyne in the year 2029. Decades after the Cybertronian aliens crashed on Earth and brought their war to us the machines have taken over. All that is left of the aliens' war is rubble and parts. Cyberdyne harvested the remains of one of the aliens to develop a prototype for a transforming Terminator. They wanted something with the capabalities of transforming into a fast moving car, and having all the cabapabilities and more of a Terminator. When Cyberdyne realized that the alien wasn't just mechanical, but an actual sentient being, they realized the limitless potential. So Cyberdyne canabilized the alien into what it called T-B.U.G., standing for Biomechanical Ultimate Guardian, meant to be the last line of defense for Cyberdyne, Skynet, and the Machine War. So T-B.U.G. was of course made from a movie Revenge of the Fallen Bumblebee and a T-1 Terminator Salvation figure. I took one of the gattling guns from the T-1 to use on the T-B.U.G. I also took random parts from the T-R.I.P. figure from the same Terminator Salvation line and glued them onto Bumblebee to make it look more like a terminator. I took the flames from a Marvel Universe Ms. Marvel figure and cut and glued them strategically onto Bumblebee's missile to actually make it look like flame instead of a weird orange club. I used rare earth magnets on the bottom of the gattling gun and on the inside of the hood of Bumblebee in car mode so it can be detached with ease. When in robot mode it hangs under his arm, and when in car mode it sits on top of the car. After that I took Bumblebee apart and went to painting...well, everything. He was entirely yellow so I had to cover it up. I used testors gun metal with a silver dry brushing and some insignia red on the eyes and certain parts of the body for accenting. All in all, it was a weird concept I randomly came up with for some reason and just HAD to do. I hope you all enjoyed the backstory and description. But enough of my rambling, onto the photos! Thanks for looking!
