    Thank you @ambitron and don't be silly, that looks great!!! I was planning to do the Marvel one eventually but now I don't know if I feel the need, yours looks real!

    Also do you have any plans to do any customs based on MP-45? :)

    Do it! I'd love to see yours as I'm sure it will be a lot cleaner. And no plans at the moment. If I had the skills, I'd love to create a Marvel version, but I think that would really need yellow plastic for the shins rather than grey plastic painted yellow, because of the potential chipping. It's a shame @Sam is no longer around, as he had some cool plans for a Cybertronian version using parts from a flying sub kit, and I'd love to see that.

    Alrighty you got it, Marvel Bumblebee is back on the queue! :thumb  Good point on the shins, I hadn't thought about that. I also was really looking forward to Sam's custom, I'm hoping he still does it eventually and at least returns to share photos. Haven't heard from him very recently though :(

    That’s epic man. Bumblebee is a great base to work on. Lot of good and easy shapes.

    Last one (as far as historical G1 toy accurate versions go ;)  )...the rare black variant of a Japanese exclusive 7-11 keychain (if I understand correctly). Bumblebee's just back from filming an ultimately deleted scene as Batman's replacement vehicle in The Dark Knight!

    I’d probably actually put that on a key chain. Gives him an edgy but badass chain stuck to him in robot mode.

    Ha, yeah that's true...the back fender. So on the original, it would be on his shoulder in robot mode...on MP-45, it would end up folded up into his back somewhere! I'd have to watch a transformation video again to see if it would even be exposed or not!

    Since Hasbro is doing Marvel figs now, would loose my shit if they did a MP Marvel Legends line with their comic color schemes. I didnt even read the comics (with the exception of TF vs GIJoe in the grocer line. Didnt get past the part where the Joes blew up Bumblebee).

    I call this piece..."GOALS"

    Of course, these "goals" consist entirely of work that must be done by others (TakaraTomy) ;)

    Perusing the Bee range. That’s quite a selection. Didn’t you say you had more to do?

    So what is our current release date for this guy now? I preordered through Baba back in Feb for $85, so I'll be a bit behind everyone who ordered through AMJ.

    I’d buy a $1000 briefcase full of these. So fun to carry around.

    Oh gosh thanks as always sir!! I admit I didn't add any shadows being cast from one figure onto the next :lol 

    Yup! I am gonna do more though I believe I've done all the G1 toy accurate decoes. Everything from here on will be comics, cartoons, or other toylines "adapted" to this mold!

    Haha this is one "grand" set of Bees ;)
