    Hello everyone !

    So since i recently bought the glorious WeiJiang M01 and i´m just waiting for him to arrive... it has inspired me to re-do my movie collection to be on-par with his Masterpiece like looks.
    Since the HA figures seem to scale incredibly well with him i took my HA Bumblebee to transform him (pun intended) into his DOTM self... which is my favorite version of the movie Bee

    So starting with the Vehicle mode, it was an interesting experience to make the ROFT 2010 Camaro ZL1 into the DOTM 2011 SS Camaro, of course it´s not 100 % since ethe SS Camaro is very different from the ZL1, since i´m not good at all when it comes to sculpting i replicated the SS Camaro details with paint.
    You can notice most if not all the paint details almost instantly.

    The headlights are an example of that.

    And here´s a quick ook at the side.

    And here´s a better look at the spoiler.

    Now Bot mode is where things get really interesting, I tried to make him look as accurate as i could, yes the torso it´s not accurate at all but the rest looks decent.. atleast in my opinion.

    One of the big things i did to Bee was add the Voyager Prime hands (I know not accurate at all but i love the way they look) and add the arm armor. Not the best sculpt but it looks ok-ish.
    I also did len_d69´s brilliant leg mod !

    The battle mode it´s still present on the figure.

    And that´s pretty much it, while he´s not perfect i think he will now look pretty good with the M01 Commander which was my main goal.

    I hope you all like it !

    Have a great day

    -Prime

    Looks pretty good. I was never crazy about HA Bee's robot mode (mainly because the legs and feet were inaccurate), but that's just my taste; you've made it quite better though! And I love the car mode!!

    Well done. May I ask what did you do with the seats in car mode? Did you just remove them?

    Something's going on with FLIKR. Not seeing any of those.

    But the beauty is in the paint, and it looks fantastic.

    I have a spare HABB, and I just might try that leg mod.
