DMK Bumblebee WIP 2


 Happy New Year folks!!!! So following up closely from my previous post last year (which is only a coupla hours ago, lol) I've fitted some kitbashed parts from the WFC Bee onto the inner frame and armoured bits of DMK movie Bee. I think I'm starting to get a better idea of the proportions and posture. As you can see, I want this fella to be HEROIC. He's Bumblebee, stinging lighting-quick hornet, with close combat capabilities no Decepticon would wanna mess with! Not Bumblebee, bumbling cute little honey bee. LOL.



    The doors for car mode will be still at their original positions, just replaced with much more stylish WFC versions...


    The main form-changing trick is the beefed up shoulders. Once that's achieved, the rest of the shape follows. To beef up the shoulders, I'll be finding a way to secure this WFC wheel bit on top of the DMK shoulder armour....


    Then comes the forearms. Anybody care to venture a guess where the blade comes from? LOL. I figured a Ninja-like Bumblebee suits the lightning-quick slice-and-dice dynamo look, so blades as opposed to BFGs are preferred.


    The back looks complicated enough. Right now everything's just stuck on with blu-tack, but the real challenge will be how to secure them properly and seamlessly, yet be able to paint the bits...



    I'm pretty pleased with the look thus far. He's definitely looking much cooler and fiercer now with this top-heavy V-shaped posture!


Don't mess with me.
