TF: PRIME FE Bumblebee - Accurate face

Weapon: Electro-Disruptor
Simple touch-up to First Edition Bumblebee to give him a face accurate to the show appearance.

Tamiya acrylics - Flat aluminum on face, Semi-gloss black on eyebrows, Metallic grey on chin and helmet.

Side-by-side with original appearance:

I've also touched up his exhaust pipes, knees, and body area with small bits of silver and metallic grey to make it as show-accurate as possible.

Simple edits to make this figure, who is already awesome, a bit more awesome.

Wow, that's really simple, yet the final result looks brilliantly screen accurate!
Well done! :APPLAUSE:

Haha, thanks! I was thinking the same thing. It was such an easy paint app that made such a big difference. When you look at overall how nice the First Editions are, it makes you wonder why they just skipped over such obvious details like this.

To be honest, Starscream's lacking quite a bit of red, too.
So it's not just Bumblebee. ;)

Surprising how much difference a bit of paint can make on a TF. Just a bit of paint and you turned the murderous glower on his face back into that disarmingly innocent visage we know and love! :grin:

Needless to say, good job!

Thank you very much! Painting these things to match the show is a lot more fun that it probably should be. :lol:

Indeed...we should be scowling throughout the whole process and cursing Hasbro for making us paint our own TF's! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mmm. I think the way the eyebrows are painted make him look depressed. Unless that was intentional, that's my only (minor) nitpick. Otherwise, great work.
