    Speedlee:
    I had some ideas of making a laserbeak BB custom after I watched the DOTM Movie, but when I saw Encline's & Solrac333 "Save the TaTas" Charity Auction I decided it's time to put these thoughts into action ! And for a good cause too !!! :D

    Very nice job. I only have one question: shouldn't the Autobot symbol on his head be changed to a Decepticon?

    Thank you for all the comments !!!

    If you noticed, in the DOTM movie when laserbeak transforms into the pink bumblebee, the logo on his forehead is still an Autobot logo... Cheers :D

    Very super clean paint application and that pink just "pops" man. The contrast b/w the Pink panels and the metal bits really make it stand out. Makes me want this thing, and I initially laughed at it in the store when I saw it. Damn good man!

    Nice idea, and great paintjob/custom work! What did you use for the paints? Looks like some tedious airbrush work, from what I'm guessing.
    Good on you to auction it for a good cause too.

    Thanks guys for taking the time to comment !!!

    I have been using Gaia paints for a while, it's a japanese brand lacquer paint and so far the results are pretty good... The paints are very tough too !!!

    There are actually 3 different shades of silver for the metal part alone, to somehow get the shading feel and look, I'm still learning and working to make it look better though !!!

    Thanks peps :)
