    "Stupid Bumble-bot steals all of Wasp's glory and rats Wasp out as a traitor! Optimus ideas of peace are foolish! The only regret Wasp has is that I didn't finish the job on Bumblebee and only took out his voice box...Someday Wasp will get his revenge! Ohhh yesss, someday Wasp will get his revenge!"


    Hey guys this is just a repaint and head swap. It started off as a HA Bumblebee minus the head that I found at a thrift shop and a Universe Blaster head that I found at the same thrift shop. I put the 2 pieces together awhile ago and they sat on my to do list for sometime. I had no idea what I was going to do with him or how to paint this guy up. It wasn't until Waspinator got press for the hall of fame that I noticed a similar look to this guy and so began the painting. The HA mold is a PITA to paint, everytime I thought I was finished I found another little detail or a nook&cranny I missed with the brush. I hope you guys enjoy this little project of mine!
