I couldn’t afford one if I found it and since I’m about 10yrs behind the idea that this was a thing I decided to make one instead.. I found an old G1 pretender Bumblee shell, that I think was buried in a sandbox since the 80s cause it was beat up. I also wanted an updated mini robot and not a Huffer retool lol .. I added some weapons from an Iron Factory Ultimate Commander set that’s warming a shelf in the box doing nothing and what’s cool is the weapons combine .. *gasp* I know , me too to bad I didn’t take any pics of that for you lol .. but any way here it is I’m sure I’ll get an email about copy this and rights that maybe I don’t know.. but it still, looks so damn good!!
    Ps :the easiest part was obtaining the felt hat.. there’s a whole underworld of felt hat trading you wouldn’t believe ..

    God, i love the stupid Dairycon exclusives. I was thinking of doing the same thing with the repaint. Can T30 Prime fit in the shell?

    Great job!!

    I am curious about the Dairycon exclusives. Are they actual toys released in limited numbers or are they just one off customs made by the organisers parodying the likes of the Botcon sets?

    I have no idea.. the inner robot of the pretender prime is a Huffer with a modded face so imagine to a degree they get stuff done other than that I think someone paints them.. judging from the character “agent orange “ I seen in ebay he’s a G1 windcharger painted orange and blue and it showed so i don’t know .. lol ..they have some stuff that’s got clear palstic parts that aren’t the same as retail so maybe they know a guy lol ..the pics are hard to tell in some cases

    Yes he does fold him almost to a truck and turn his feet around and he drops right in and closes up ..

    Hot damn, that looks almost factory quality. Did you sculpt the mustache?

    It looks better than Henry Cavill's...

    So the Prime figure can fit inside the shell?

    This is absolutely fantastic! I'm a big fan of the idea that any human avatar or disguise Op uses will inevitably look like Peter Cullen.

    Yes he does

    I did.. lol ,had to there needed to be substance and not just painted on

    I plan on doing a few more customs based on what they’ve done at Dairycon .. I do think these are a parody of Botcon stuff and the hype and all that .. which I dig , lol ..

    They are both. Limited run customs of existing TF figures and random nonsense made for shits and giggles. Like the Toilet Jumpstarter.
