Transformers Prime Bumblebee vs Knockout.
Posts Tagged ‘Bumblebee’
So, I picked up an Elite Guard Bumblebee as a present for my future Mrs.
After a quick custom mod, I gotta say… He’s pretty impressive. Thankfully he does not have a yellow head, as all the promo, stock, and package pictures show. The yellow that is there actually enhances the black (and the black enhances the yellow in return), with the deep blue of the stingers and his eyes as delicious icing on this creamy cake of animated goodness.
Maybe it’s the tiny eyes of the movie figs, but boy do I enjoy this Bee’s light piping!
All in all, I must now declare him…
“Hi! I’m Bumblebee and I’m a choking hazard.”
I think my activators Bee overheard me talking about how the Cliffjumper repaint might replace him on display, as a crazy tough guy bot is better than a kid friendly character.
I found this picture under my pillow…
Step 6: Where to Carve on Forearm
Emo readers take note, I’m talking about Bumblebee’s forearm.
Man, that joke almost makes me want the repaint…
Step 4: Where to cut on the new stinger piece
Remove the two stinger halves from your extra Bumblebee. Next, you need to cut the plastic so each singer looks like the following pictures.
Step 3: Where to cut on the main stinger piece
You may have noticed by now that the stinger wasn’t molded to fit the way we want it to. Sorry kids, just turning it around and putting the pin back in isn’t going to cut it, so instead we’ll cut on Bumblebee…
A Pin hinge can be tricky at first. If you’ve never kit bashed before, the most you’ve probably fiddled with were screws, and information on how to tackle removal of the pin can be hard to find. The method I use is the most common, though there are those that swear by a fine tipped soldering iron.
I never thought I’d say this, but I think using a hammer is the safer way.
Step 1: Cut a Hole in the Box
Step 1: Obtain an Extra Bumblebee
This step should be self-explanatory, but that’s not stopped me before…
Animated Bumblebee is an underrated figure, hobbled with the cheap appearance of yellow plastic, different tones of yellow, and a crappy stinger gimmick. In spite of this, I really wanted to like the little guy.
But something had to be done about his stinger. He needed something better looking, and two of them!
