    Bumblebee has surely seen better days!
    The new BB mold is great and I believe it doesn't need any mods, so it can be painted right away.
    The car mode was painted with a custom orangish yellow and has all the metallic details painted in chrome. The backlights are painted with metallic red and a coat of glass paint to make them look more reallistic. The robot mode is mixture of many shades of silver over a black base, with some chrome and gold parts. the gun arm has some shades of metallic blue in certain parts to emulate the lights the real one has. To weather him up I used 3 or 4 shades of brown for mud and dirt stains, rust in certain part, black, gray and silver for scratches on the car paint and a black wash all over the robot mode to weather a little the metallic parts.

    I think Bumblebee has one of the better stock paint jobs of the ROTF line but like the others is really brought to life with some additional work.

    The new headsculpt in particular looks so much better with the eyes not standing out as being so overly intense and the weathering is very effective.Top job!

    Thanks man.
    I agree with you, the stock paint on BB is very accurate, specially if you compare him with.. say.. Sideways? xD

    Thanks!
