    Look great. I was thinking about doing that to my ciffjumper. What did you use to get the clear parts blue?

    I used the Walmart 3pk Classics Bumblebee. His clear parts are all clear blue. Considering botcon bugbite is clear purple, this is the closest I could do without having to paint it.

    Are you going to add a Con symbol on the chest?

    Yeah. I got some waterslide decepticon decals from Frenzy rumble. I just need to fix them and apply them.

    Pretty cool! Not that I think it needs any, but do you plan on adding graphics?

    At first I was gonna recreate Botcon Bugbite and make the graphics. But then I decided i would like to see a clean Henkei version. Kinda like how Henkei BB is clean.

    Very cool dude.
    I like the "clean" idea too. Are you going to try any other shattered figs with the same style? It would be cool to see a Sideswipe or Prime like that.

    Actually, since you haven't added them yet, have you thought of giving him red decals and making him Shattered Glass Bug Bite?


    The eyepatch and 'tache might be neat, too.

    smooth 'n clean white paint, dude, nice! I wish I had a 3-pack BB, but I only want the classics mold from the set, so I never got it.

    ok, yeah saw that. According to TFwiki, he has a monacle, not an eye patch.
