    Here is Goldbug, he was made from the 3rd party ART Feather Bumblebee and I have added Renderform GOLDBUG's head design and strengthen figures joints. GOLDBUG is in great scale for new line with certain MP figures. He is painted in a gold color scheme and metallic blue for his head and legs just like in the G1 cartoon.

    Pretty sweet. Its sad to think we will never see a MP Bumblebee as a VW Beetle officially released.

    That looks great! I love the gold. Out of curiosity, what paint do you use?

    I have to admit that this reshelled version of the Classics BB mold works better for Goldbug than it ever did for BB. I think it's the arm kibble. It doesn't look odd here like it did for the latter.

    Fantastic! Beautiful paint job!

    Really wish that reshelled BB had included the kibble-free mods Radicons have made though. The hood collapse into the chest rather than sticking out as shinguards... and the car doors folding behind his feet rather than bulk his arms up.

    That's nice! Like the head also. Was looking at getting one of those feather bee things but they seem to concentrate more on making the box look good rather than the figure itself.

    This does look very nice, and the back kibble and arm doors really work as a throttle bot update. Excellent job and vision.

    That's what I was thinking too. It does make a better Goldbug.

    Excellent work.
