    ever since I saw the first combo attempt of this mold from aledromo and later by Tcracker by combining the classics bumblebee head and FE bb figure, I was fascinated by how much this figure could change with a single head swap,simply a genius custom, and while I still want to have a go at that particular concept, I figured I would first try expanding on the idea a bit, so I took the beelzeboss third party add-on head and blasters and incorporated them onto the FE BB mold, for that I switched the balljoint peg altogether and gave him a metallic gold paintjob with some stripes on the sides for alt mode, color matched a few sections with the dark blue from the head and added some silver apps to break the colors here and there, I left the head's light piping alone since I really like the effect it has on the overall figure, almost Led like if you ask me, I really hope you guys like this one! :)

    Amazing how Bumblebee's molds improve if he's repainted to *anything* that isn't just Bumblebee. Yes, I know he's an upgraded Bumblebee, but damn if there's something not strange about the Movieverse-esque look of Prime Bee. >_<

    Great work of course. That gold looks damn good on this bot. The head looks quite suitable for a Prime-verse figure... would be nice for a Vehicon general methinks.
