Um... I wasn't using sarcasm... What BBee1251 said wasn't really sarcasm... O.o;; It's more just "bad jokes" methinks. :P

Anyways... Like that Goldbug... Though will admit looks like Sunstreaker thansk to all the people using that head as his! xD

Have to ask, though... Is your Goldbug holding a Gundam gun? o.o?!

And why won't we see the Kup...? Makes me wanna see the Kup all the more... :cry:

Wait... Is that even your Goldbug...? Or is that supposed to be 'Streaker? I are teh confussed... @.@;;

Still though... Show us your failed Alts!! >O

just check that out

http://www.tfmaster.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4174

it's my sunstreaker...an i made him when the proto for deadend/sunstreaker came out...like 2 years ago.
i bought the proto with the autobot symbol molded into
the chest, reproed the head, the rest is just history.

yeah he has a gundam gun...i don't remember which one..i
think it was from the gundam hydra...the alternate series
in the gundam wing universe

and my goldbug looked like this...

Wow... Goldbug is gorgeous. And a vastly underused character (who will be appearing in Fusion, I believe...).
That's a failure? What went wrong? :(

man, it was an attempt at complete futility (ya like that?)

it was supposed to originally be my crowning alt. bumblebee
after being less than perfect, i figured i could salvage it by
making it goldbug. but in the end
it was completely frustrating, there were:

gap issues that couldn't be fixed
paint issues (it wouldn't stick to the body even after being resanded
and re-painted)
i couldn't get any of the joints to hold to the body the glue
kept coming undone
i couldn't secure the legs to the body, again JB Weld, epoxy, marine
epoxy, and 3 other types of super glue etc. couldn't make it stick
i finally had to give up as i was sooooooo pissed that it wouldn't
work...and if i finished it would still have sucked.
look at my snarl, first thing anyone pointed out on it was the gap issues

we've all got a good "eye" and see the little things...
I want an alt Bumblebee probably more than any other character ever,
since i was 5 he has been my single most favorite character and to
create him is to be perfect. nothing less...i hope someone else out
there understand what i'm sayin.

ok if you get a small enough drill bit you can use it to make screw holes. with the new tiny holes add screws into the tiny holes to make it strong. any small toy screws would work i like the ones from the kos that have a point they secure better. ive done this to customs you can drop them of a fridge after. i have rarely completed a custom all the way through they almost always go in the cubboard for storage till i get feeling to work on them again. that screw thing should help with leg placement :D

yeah, i'm gonna make sure everyone that wants to do a bb
can have the right head. the cast/mold is ok i can only do it as
a one piece as i couldn't (actually wouldn't) take off the head from
the statue.

the head is slightly larger than a smokescreen head, put will definately
fill the the giant void that is the engine compartment.

soo exactly what the new title says

Postby Bumblebee1251 » Fri Mar 17, 2006 9:58 pm

i figure Piranacon is with me on this...but anyone else is ok to be along
for the ride.

here's what i'm thinkin
since the VW beetle is probably never gonna be made, we've got
enough talent here to do it ourselves...heck they practically gave us
most of the design already.

i am gonna use this as the base alt mode:

i like this version because it is more aggressive, more rally.
it is longer, wider and taller that the regular beetle and both are
1:24 scale[/img]

anyway, i like the look better and it will be easier to fit an
alt body into.

really my version of Bumblebee looks very similar to my goldbug.
an alt smokescreen/streak forms the basis for robot mode

the front of the body forms the upper torso
the rear the legs...obviously it departs from the bt version because
of this
i like the look, but i'm not talented enough to make it work:


Image

hands/arms from either sideswipe...i like those the best or from skids
(which would probably fit better)
i think i've figured out the shoulder mount, the swing wheels in the upper torso, and the head/windshield/hood

but i would need help on figuring the feet/wheels, and how to fold the body in various parts.
