Give the DOTM BBB a neck with the TFP W BBB's head.
Oddly, I like it. Do you plan to match the yellow of the head with the yellow of the body? Otherwise, looks pretty sweet.
I'm pretty bad at matching the colors, so will just leave it is.
If you have a test piece you can experiment with, the BEST match for Bumblebee, at least the deluxe versions, has been Apple Barrel King's Gold, with a small amount of FolkArt Metallic Inca Gold in. Mix that, use some of the Future Finish floor wax to thin it down, and put it on. That's how I've done every Bumblebee deluxe custom I've ever worked on for people, and it's been a damn good match for it. You can get both for < $2 each in Wal-Mart's crafts department.
I don't see why they'd change the color for the larger versions, so give it a shot and see. You'll need to play with the amount of inca you put in to match the metallic flake, but at least to me, it's great.
Of course, if you don't want the metallic shine to it, you can just use the regular king's gold on your test piece and see how it looks.
That is not bad at all. I have a Cyberfire for which I am trying to find a new head, and this might work (I have a spare BB head).
Wow, thank you for the detail reply, I will give it a try.
