    Copperhead is a redeco of legion class Bumblebee from Transformers Prime. He's a brand new member of the Autobots and is an Intelligence Specialist just like Bumblebee.

    Created as an exclusive figure for my local Arizona TF group, this project entailed me repainting 10 lil' legion Bumblebees. That led to lots of work over the course of several weeks.

    The bio was written by StayingInTheBox, and the packaging artwork was Photoshopped and printed by Ruminus; both members of our AZ group.

    An overview of the project can be found on my blog: Copperhead (legion custom) | The Floating Cat

    Photos and notes of the entire process can be found in a Flickr set, that contains tons of photos, tips, and descriptions: Copperhead (custom legion) - a set on Flickr

    Even though they were small base figures, it still was a lot of masking and airbrushing. Lots of tiny details, and lots of repetition. I also kind of wish the color scheme was like I had originally intended it, but I'm happy overall with the final outcome. I don't think I'll be doing a project like this anytime soon.

    Listed below are several of the photos that stood out, especially the group ones where I was able to shoot the entire group of 10.

    Awesome! Pure absolute awesome.

    Hats off to you dude, this is one hell of a job, and to get each one identical is an achievement!

    On side note, this mold may work painted up as chromedome too!

    Wow! That's a lot of Bumblebees! Amazing job, ten of them and they all look amazing! One of my favorite parts has to be the packing though: "Made in Vietnam... FINISHED IN ARIZONA!" :lol

    That's beautiful. The colors are so crisp, especially when there's ten of them.

    In this case, legion means more than one thing.
