    You've got a great start - will look forward to seeing your updates!

    As far as parts go, you're better off scratch-building those (sadly), but you can find all diameters of round parts in pens, from the barrel to the conical end...

    If you have a specific part you need, lemme know & I'll see if I can't find something you can make it out of...

    looks good man, hope you pull it off well. I tried something like this when I was building my '07 BB, but it didn't turn out so well on my parts. Also, for the arm gauntlet thingies, why not just go find a TFTM RR BB and use the for arms and cannon off of that? The only problem I found in doing that is that the arms can't fit into his alt mode...

    Well, from what it seems like you're off to a great start and I can't wait to see is further along. Another thing you COULD try is to just use the lower arms from that RoTF Cannon BB... but I still cant get the thing to transform right with those either, so IDK what else to do BUT build my own parts, however I',m not sure I would want to myself bc my scratch building sssuuuuucks... However yours seems like you have some experience building with styrene. GOOD LUCK TO YOU MY FRIEND!

    yea, I hear ya, they're getting scarce around my area too. in fact, I haven't seen on in a long while... glad I snagged 2 :D  Also, seeing how you are taking the roof off the arms, what are you planning to do with it? I was thinking of making a kind of slide mechanism for the roof to like... slide up over the windshield to cover it bot mode, and have really figures that out just yet.

    Pinoy ka pala!? Ayos.

    I agree with closetrat that scratchbuilding may be the best way to get add-on parts in exactly the right size and shape for your needs. It's also a lot funner when you get to build something with junk lying around the house.

    Two thing are important for me, for a succesful movie bumblebee:
    First, you have to make his chest right,
    Second, you have to do his insect like four wings in his back:[​IMG]
