    Got my hands on a few of the BB Classics mold and wanted to make a Wasp/Waspinator out of him. Figure is all BB but the head. The head is a heavily modified Kamen Rider head from a 4" figure.

    I repainted him in traditional Wasp colors then panel ined him in neon green. Added tons of extra detailing to this guy to make him stand out.
    The Ski Doo was made to look like it has a lightening pattern to it, however when attached to Wasp in his bot mode the bolts then act as veins for the "bug" wings on him.

    Thanks for looking,
    Shinobi

    This is one of the best repaint ideas ever! Really dig how you used the backpack for wasp's wings. Really really dig this.

    This is awesome. You make me want to get a second bumblebee to do this to. Or maybe I'll just do it with the one I have. I really love green repaints.

    Very Nice finished product man, nice head. Wonder what a painted BW Waspinator head would have looked like? Nice job though, really captures the character in a classics/g1 style

    Nice colors. I really how the head looks and the use of the jet ski as wings is a neat idea.

    I don't dig the large Decepticon symbol on the hood, but everything else just wows me.
