Version 2, using the OTHER Bumblebee mold. While I was OK with the first one, the gorilla arms kept getting on my nerves, so I went and tried again...

Decided to take a different approach this time, so I modified BB's head by adding on a visor and some nubby horns...

throw on a similar paint scheme to the previous one I did, and throw in the speakers from the Generations Jazz I used for the first, and we get this...

Paint job's not the cleanest... might touch him up a bit soon...
I'm still not too confident on whether the head works, to be honest... Keep having this strange urge to rip it off and replace it with the Generations Jazz one, but... I guess this makes it more my own?... /shrugs...

Nice! I saw your first one and liked the idea. It's a shame they used this design for 'bee. It has more potential for characters like Jazz. I applaud your dedication for not only making one, but re-doing the job so as to be satisfied :grin:

Your work on the head is well done also; but if you did decide to replace it with an actual Jazz head I wouldn't worry that it knocks your creativity or hard work or originality, because clever re-use of existing parts also shows skill and creativity. ;)

Thanx man. :)
I REALLY wanted a TF Prime Jazz that looked unique and evocative of his G1 self... and didn't look like an ape... it's gotten so that I'm actually starting to like the PRID Bee more than FE now... at least for customs...
Still thinking about the head swap... I mean, I'm happy about it, but there's times when I stare at it and it looks like Waspinator to me. >___=
I think the mold is actually more versatile than most give it credit for, but it's a curse... and strangely enough, a blessing... that they're flooding the market with it... makes it easier for the customizers, but collectors tend to tear their hair out when they see it...
Anyway, thanx a lot for looking man, and for the very kind comments. Much appreciated! XD
