HftD Battle Blade Bumblebee Chest Modification

All I could say is that this could [have been] one of the most screen-accurate and best movie Bumblebee molds that Hasbro ever made! Not everything is perfect with this Hunt for the Decepticons line of movie Bumblebee, [though, especially with] the chest portion! So, I gave a little modification to its chest for both chest panels tilt to the center of the body. Until then, watch out for this as it's almost complete!

Scroll down to the bottom to see the completed figure [Original source: ROTF: Bumblebee (Deluxe)]


TUTORIAL: Remove the chest panels and trim the hinges. Select the appropriate size ball joint that fits perfectly on the untrimmed hinge of the body and have it attached to each of the chest panels with modeling epoxy. With the use of [a] ball joint, you can now have the chest panels tilt as seen in the movies!

[. . . . and here is] the custom painted and modified version of Hasbro's Deluxe Class Battle Blade BUMBLEBEE from the Hunt for the Decepticons line which based on the 2009 blockbuster movie Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen. [Additional to this tutorial modification,] this figure [was] painted all over as accurate[ly] as possible referring to its onscreen appearance and movie concept design. This figure comes with several [other] modifications and additional accessories to reach the accuracy [and] to increase the articulation and playability.


Features and Details:
  • Custom modified chest piece for a more onscreen appearance [which is from the tutorial above].
  • Additional beads were used for the eyes, cannon, and lower light/ chest piece.
  • Tinted windscreen and windows.
  • Painted with Mechafacture's signature shading and toning style.
  • Painted in realistic weathering effects, metallic and chrome paints.
  • Under different lighting angle, different shades of yellow will be seen.
  • Used high quality finishing and coatings to maintain the durability of this figure.
