    Dedicated to my Arch Nemesis and TFCon Bad Boy, Nemesis Predaking. Congrats, bro!!!!


    At an early age, Bumblebee was noted for his speed, agility, qucik thinking and ability to get out of sticky situation untouhed, His brother Waspinator.....was not.

    [​IMG]

    Years of living in his little brothers shadow had taken their turn, to the point where Optimus could not risk assigning hm to any missions.

    [​IMG]

    That was when he changed sides. Starscream needed someone who counter Bumblebee move for move and turn for turn.

    [​IMG]

    Motivated by pure hatred, Waspinator has made it his mission to step out from behind his brother's legacy, and carve out one of his own....right into BB's spark chamber.

    Nothing fancy guys, I was looking at an extra 08' BB with the battle mask and I realized how much he looked like an insect head..and BAM.

    That is a cool idea and you pulled it off well. The photos look sort of grainy though. Is that intentional?

    I think it makes his weapon make more sense, like it's a stinger or something. He looks really nice (I dig green), but your pics seem to have taken a step or two back :(

    Dude I just realized that the way that the front of BB's hood splits up in bot mode is really reminiscent to the original waspinator's bot mode with the wasp head splitting down the center. Now I think it looks like Waspinator even more.

    Thanks, man. I wasn't a big Beast Wars guy, but I loved how often he got himself blowed up. :lol 

    No, my main camera has taken a dump, and the new ones won't be here until next week. So, Ii had to use my secondary. the pics are barely passable, but better than nothing.

    :lol  Cool...Just send me your BW Rampage, and were all even! :lol 

    Something Fallen this way comes.........

    Yeah, the camera was'nt up to snuff, sensei. I retook pics twice, working with the contrast and Macro settings, and this is the best that I could get. :banghead: 
    Ironhide's pics are barely passable, but these were a disappointment.

    :lol  I'm really shocked that no one has done one yet!

    It's well deserved, bro. You are my brother from another mother!

    :lol  I almost took a pic of him holding his own head! :lol

    look into your iso settings, see if you accidentally changed it. You want a lower number and more light, and not the other way around. :)
