I won't lie to you fellas. This is going to hurt. A lot. After much deliberation and input from forum members, I settled on using Transformers Prime Shadow Strike Bumblebee (left) as the base figure for a custom TFP Lockdown to add to my collection. I'll be removing his yellow paint and body parts, and replacing them with regular Bumblebee's light gray parts. For robot mode I will be creating a new head, neck, feet, hook hand, chainsaw hand and EMP blaster. For vehicle mode I'll be adding new front & rear spoilers, headlights, taillights, side-pipes, and spiked wheels for the vehicle mode. To finish him off, he'll get a paint job heavily inspired by his appearance in Transformers Animated. I'll be using this thread to document the process along the way.
