    Hi Everybody, I usually post over on sector70 but I figure I might as well post here as well. I did not realize who big of a community Radicon and TFW was until I recently met some of the members here. Anyway
    This is a simple modification. I just shaved the chin and filled in the divots on bumbleebee and volia the face totally looked more feminine. I already felt the mold was a little chesty and girly it a chubby was:) . Anyway hope you guys like it.

    Didn't realize this BB does look feminine. Nice work.

    I like it. The face is very well done, and honestly, I think it works better as Glyph than Bumblebee. You could display her next to your classics Bumblebee and it would look like a totally different character. Nice job.

    Looks great! I'd like to see how you'd go with turning an Animated Arcee into IDW's version, or maybe a seeker into Slipstream. Not to make it sound like you'd be famous for femmes lol.

    I like the use of metallic blue. It looks very Tron-ish. Now I want this for myself.^^

    Really nice. The metallic blue paint was a good call.

    I think maybe you could have also reshaped the helmet's horns a bit, just to make Glyph look less like Bumblebee with lipstick.

    I actually bought an extra Bee so I could make a Kup. Turn the car backwards, and it looks like Kup's alt mode just a bit.

    Wow, good job! My only suggestion would be the for the 'stinger blades'; the red seems to look out of place. You could use some Future Floor Finish and put a bit of red paint/marker and make it purple, if you think it would look good. It's fine as it is, and is only a suggestion. Again, very nice!

    Very nice. I was waiting for somebody to do this custom, and it works even better than I expected.

    Totally looks like Trons :) 

    I think the horns are more Glyph like, but I can see what your point. How would you change the helmet. I was thinking of putting the visor and mouth plate to make her look more like her orginial design but bubblebee face looked so girly I couldn't resist.

    You know thats a fantastic idea. I have been exploring the whole neon paint thing. I am going to post some soon . If I put a thin layer of the neon blue it may turn purple and give it a neon blue color.

    You should definately do it. Very fast custom to do, but just to let you know this mode rubs a lot when he transforms

    I think this is very well done! This is going to sound very nit-picky, but I'd like to see that small portion of the window have the blue removed from it. I'm really loving the monochromatic color palette you used (which makes me want to see that red blade either a blue or a silver).

    GREAT job :thumb

    your lipstick on BB is neat. coupled with the shaved chin, it's just spot-on.
    but i did preferred a less pronounced horns on the head.
    still reminds me a bit on bb.
    what's done is done. just admiring your work.
    just my 2ยข worth.

    yup, this mold is indeed tricky during transformation. lotsa rubbing between the parts and snapping on for a tight fit. maybe it's just my figure.
