TFcon have revealed this year's custom class figure, "Transformers Prime Decepticharge". Those attending the class will transform a Transformers Prime First Edition Bumblebee into Decepticharge using a new head sculpt, stickers, and paint. Check him out below.

TFcon is happy to reveal the 2013 custom class figure “Transformers Prime Decepticharge”. Instructed by customizing veterans DAK, Nemesis Predaking, Plowking and Chans formers, this class will take you through the real customizing process from start to finish, taking a toy and transforming it into a new character. Using a new head sculpt, paint, stickers and several hours of focus, all skill levels can learn how to create their own custom toy in this class where everything you need will be provided. There are still spots open for the Sunday class which you can register for here: http://tfcon2013.eventbrite.ca/

I see Bumblebee with a bucket on his head. Is this a real character inspired by anything comic or cartoon ?

Just the Alternator line, after a happy accident. He's basically a Decepticon Windcharger with a head to match (the original was actually Overdrive).
In the Binaltech line this toy got tossed about everywhere, from the original yellow deco as G2 Wildrider, to a grey and silver one as Blackarachnia, to finally in white and pink as G1 Arcee. :lol:
