    My latest completed work, customized high octane Bumblebee.

    Mainly just a repaint, took that horribly obtrusive canon off and gave him Crosshair's smaller guns so he isn't totally defenseless. New ball-jointed wrists that mainly just allow for some nice rotation and fill out the length of his arms better.

    <---- He's up on my eBay store right now too.

    Now that is a figure I would buy - I think the re-use of the feet from the 1st concept Camaro toy + lack of wrists/posable hands is kinda the deal breaker for me...

    Just by removing his arm cannon, you've virtually sold the figure to me.

    That really speaks volumes of how a small mod can really improve looks. Well done! The paint looks pretty decent and arming him with Crosshairs's tiny guns was a pretty wise maneuver.

    That's cool. I think this, the Evasion Prime and Hound are the only 3 I MAY possibly consider purchasing.

    Good try, this bee is cool.
    i think that your paint skill could be better, try water paint brush & use masking tape for straight line, should app the color better.
