    Since the last time I posted him here, I've chromed Bee and added just a few more details.
    I had a spare head, so I tried drilling some holes into his eyes to put beads in. Unfortunately it didn't work out, so I gave him the new head with a bit less silver.
    Later on I'd like to give his robot mode a full dry brush paint job...

    Looks like he added some silver to the robot and added a shit-ton of vehicle mode details.

    Thanks! I'm hoping that I can get good enough to redo the rough spots on some of my other work down the road, like the wrinkles on my Optimus...

    No problem, it's definitely a fair question. Actually, the blue accents are factory. This was the All Spark version of the figure. As I mentioned in the first post, I put chrome on the vehicle mode silver parts. I also took a silver sharpie to his face and a added black details to his legs and a few other areas. I also painted yellow on his hands and arms and added some silver and gold details. That's about it... for now :) 

    Actually, most of the vehicle mode details are Reprolabels. It's a great set that I put on all my deluxe movie Bees...

    Thanks! It probably doesn't help that there have been so many variations of Bee that it's hard to recall what each one has and doesn't have...

    I remember at the time I had gotten the deluxe Bee with battle damage. I usually don't multiples of a mold, but I really liked this one and wanted a clean version. But the clean ones were so hard to find in my stores! I never did get one until much later they released this one with the All Spark blue, and I jumped on the chance to get him.
    It's a lot different than nowadays where Bumblebee is all over the place! :) 

    EDIT: Adding original pics to this post...

    5-13-13 update

    Did some dry-brushing and a little washing on Bee the other night. I'm hoping to finish him up next time I work on him. All that's left that I can think of are his feet and "shoulder blades," plus I'd like to add some more silver all over...
