    What if Bumbleebee fought for the Decepticon cause?

    This was a simple repaint. Starting with a TFTM Cliffjumper figure, I gave him a flat black base coat, dry brushed with Testors Acrylic Steel and Aluminum with some copper and red highlights. Then sprayed with Satin Black and clear coated the car mode.

    You did a hell of a nice job on Dark Bumblebee Solrac333.
    He could even be a Zombie-bee.
    Your Megatron custom is super sick to man:thumbs2:

    He does. :) 

    At first I was going to repaint him as Cliffjumper and use a glossy red for the car, then I was going to do a "stealth BB" like the one they released in 2008, but then I went with red highlights instead of yellow and he just looked evil.
