    So awhile back when I made my Beast Wars Scrapformers set, I had to take apart two Beast Machines Buzzsaws to make Scorponok. So instead of letting them go to waste, I decided to mash them together into a new original Predacon - HoneyBlast.


    Some notes about this;
    - The base figure is Kind of Beast Machines Buzzsaw and the transformation is close to that. I tried to keep the transformation pretty simple, so she ultimately sort of rolls into a bee form.
    - The bee's stinger tabs into a small hole underneath the bee thorax for beast mode and untabs to work as a handgun for Robot mode.
    - Because of the soft-rubber plastic on the antenna and bee legs, the entire figure had to be painted by hand (since I did not know the joy of painter's tape back then). The antenna themselves were cut and re-attached to give a more feminine headsculpt. Pigtails instead of a mohawk basically.
    - I originally wanted to put a Transmetal2 predacon emblem on her, but I never found a good spot that wouldn't be visible in beast mode.
    - Because of the triple jointed left arm, the bee thorax has quite a lot of posability and would even let her tuck it completely underneath herself(like an actual bee).
    - The double set of wings together don't tab together, but this is because the joints let them realign in beast mode together and a tab would have prevented that.
    - She actually fits in as a tall "Basic" or a slightly small "Deluxe" in terms of scale.

    I really dig how the colors look on that figure.

    Nice work.

    Is it alright if I can create a Bio for her on my Cronix Universe page unless you already have one in mind.

    Honey blast is too cool. She/he? actually reminds me of a MMX Maverick.

    The only things I had decided was that she's a female predacon that shoots venom shots from her stinger gun. The rest is up to your imagination.


    I actually intend to make a Generations Deluxe scaled version of her sometime in the future, probably when I'm a little less swamped in customs to finish.
