    *Edit* * 8-20-09
    Bumblequee is finally done!!!
    Not as great as I thought it would turn out but I'm happy with him.
    Next time I'm using a paint marker with a thin tip. The details on his head are to thick and sloppy looking. Even though I used the thinnest paintbrush I have.
    Maybe I'll try making Jazz next.


    *Edit*
    Here's a better pic.
    He's assembled loosely.
    Also, does anyone know someone that sells autobot decals? I want one for his chest.
    Need to paint a windshied and maybe a bumper on his feed. Other then that I thinks that's it.
    Wait, also most forgot, he's missing his head. Just need to sand and paint.

    Here's my lastest custom. A urban vinyl style Bumblebee.
    The other day I took a trip to our Super Target here and saw that they started selling urban vinyle type toys. Some Munnys-style ones, Quees, and Stickfas.

    So I picked up the Quee and got working.

    The head is completely custom, made from Aves Fixit sculpt. Waiting for it to dry to start sanding and then paint.

    Besides the head, he's almost complete. Some small detailing, and maybe a hit with some Future floor polish to seal him in.

    What you guys think?

    Oh, and that tightly coiled pile on the corner there, that what happens when you have extra Aves left over and are very inmature.

    I guess you could call him "BumbleQuee," huh? I like how you keep the little coil of used putty in every picture, too. Nice touch.

    I like where this is going. Keep it up.

    Reprolables.com dude! Hit them up for some sweet autobot decals. Also there is also someone selling some in the Repros and stickers thread.

    Dude; I think you nailed the character! Looks G1 and impishly mischievous at the same time!

    (Also, glad I have yet to get an MP Grimmy if they're gonna do that! Maybe there is an FP Housebroken Dino King kit in the future!)
