    This is my entry for the Sector 70 minibot contest. I gave movie Bumblebee an upgrade. Using a ROTF Jolt and just did a simple head swap and painted him yellow. I think this is my best paint job so far. I made sure everything was clean and perfect. Too bad it only got 3 votes including mine :( 

    Oh well, I still love my Bumblejolt or Joltbee. :)

    This works PERFECTLY for Bumblebee! Great work! :D 

    Seeing this has now made me anxious for an actual Jolt repaint. The figure is just too nice to go unused.

    With the stingers, someone else could use the same idea and make an "Animated/Movie Bumblebee". Since I don't like animated, I didn't do it.

    Cool!

    If it makes you feel any better, I think you've show that this mold is a much more classic style for G1 Bumblebee. Good job.

    Like I said on another forum, great mold choice here. The Jolt mold looks great for a Classics/ROTF style Bumblebee. Also, very nice painting as usual. :thumb

    Yeah I thought about that but you're right something looked off.

    Thanks!
