    Here's my latest completed project utilizing:
    - DMK03 Optimus Prime heavily weathered
    - MPM Bumblebee battle damaged and worn
    - MSG Diorama kit #01

    Nemesis taking a stab at Bumblebee :D

    Closer view of Nemesis... his eyes are purple but it's really hard to tell because the pupils are tiny:

    The diorama base... can you see the energon oil leaking from Bumblebee?

    So wait, you used mpm bumblebee just to cut him in half. That's a bold and expensive move but it was well worth the expense, great job.

    Thanks!
    It was actually donated as a junker for customization by a fellow forum member here :) 
    When you get bitten by the customization bug, you'll chop up (almost) anything. Lol :p 
    Thank you!

    Thank you!
    It gets easier over time... when you get tired of seeing some of your bots on your shelf and trying to sell them just doesn't make sense as you can't get much of your money back... that's when I'll chop those bots up for a custom and put them to good use :p 

    Godbomber is a nice figure as is... are you looking to completely rework him into another character or improve on what he's got?

    I have an idea that involves ginrai body, cause I have 3 and an ultra Magnus truck cab/torso that makes a TR ultra magnus of sorts that can combine with god bomber. I was gonna use the left over ginrai for a star convoy so I also wanna somehow rework godbomber into a grandus.

    I really like the idea you got there.
    Start out on working on the Ginrai body first seeing that you've got duplicates... if that works out well then move to working on the Godbomber piece.
    I really dig customs done to recreate the old Japanese G1 bots... you've got a great plan there :) 
    Thanks Seth!

    Prime: "Running off star in your own movie huh!"
    Bee: "VRRRTZ-BLOOP YOU'RE TEARING ME APART LISA"

    Fantastic custom! The cuts and bullet holes look amazing, my favorite part are the scratch marks on Bee's forearms those look incredible.

    Heheh.
    Thanks dude!
    Most importantly... thanks for generously donating Bee as he was the perfect fit in scale for this project!
    My mind's racing with ideas for other customs with the bag of parts you gave me :)

    Your welcome it was no problem mate, this part was a replacement from the supplier folks so no complete MPM Bees where hurt in the making of this custom. Can't wait to see your next project man your work is gold.
