    Camaro SS to Volt? That's a downgrade! Might as well made him into a Datsun.

    I believe "upgrade" refers to the OP making the figure closer to G1...

    Interesting concept. Personally, I would have left the carbon parts carbon and the windows clear to save some of the realism. It's something I'd be tempted to duplicate if I had the skills!

    Did Bumblebee fuse with Jolt?

    I like it. Bumblebee as a kickass warrior/muscle car never sit right with me, and this mold fits him a lot better. Nicely done.

    That head still looks like a skull though. ;)

    True with all of the above customs. A camaro to a volt is not really an upgrade but it it close to a round G1 Bumblebee. :)

    If I do another one, I may do that. Even though I didn't care for this Jolt figure, the windows were actually really nice. Almost glass like.

    I think this works exceptionally well! The carbon fiber resembles "bee eyes" and I think Bees modesty would keep him something LESS flashy than a concept Camaro. Great job!

    I wonder what it'll look like with a G1 head and normal fists :)  G1-Bay XOver?

    I never thought of the G1 head. I did however try using the DOTM Bumblbebee's arms. It looked cool but did not fit in car mode.

    Very nice job! Love that Jolt mold...

    I'd like to see him with the classics/universe head as well, couldn't you cut of the claws and add some new hands?

    Looks awesome man. Just a light suggestion...maybe added a little panel lining in the chest panels? Awesome paint though!

    I remember seeing a custom BB done from ROTF Jolt by (I believe) Limewire, so seeing this makes it full circle! :D 

    Superb paint work too. :thumb
