    This is a Transformers Prime deluxe class Bumblebee. The figure was completely disassembled, striped of paint, cleaned and then sprayed with multiple light coats of adhesion promoter. Once dry a custom mix of paint was applied to give Bee that golden color as opposed to the light yellow of the original plastic. Dual bright blue LEDs installed in the eyes with a permanent battery supply in the engine housing.

    I think you should change your username to BigZ lol. super clean i love it. I checked out the cgi and noticed alot more details on the mold thanks to you. Amazing work. Keep it up :) 
    one suggestion. well, more of an opinion than a suggestion, i think that it would make it look much more different than the default BB if you paint the windows in black. IMO. But it doesnt matter though cuz it looks insane! :)

    Yep! I am having fits trying to wire the other figures. Big Hank is helping me brainstorm them though....

    LOL! Thanks. I do agree about the windows..... on version 2!

    im glad you posted that comparison pic, it shows just how rich looking the other color you chose is, and really makes this mold pop

    the led's are just the icing on the cake

    Like others have said - clean colors & amazing work on the eyes. :thumb 
    Surprised you didn't black out the windows though & I agree, some type of lens is needed to dull the brightness of the eyes.

    Then again - I'm not the buyer... :rolleyes:
