Bumblebee: War for Cybertron Comparison

Bumblebee: War for Cybertron Comparison

Lek has been very busy cranking out the customs and they just keep getting better and better.  I love the Transformers War for Cybertron figures as they bring to life a planet that we do not know a lot about and it is cool to see the concepts and figures that are drawn for this robotic world.  Lek has made this Custom Transformers Bumblebee War for Cybertron figure pretty dead on to the games version.  The weathered metallic paint gives Bumblebee that embattled look.

Lek's figure also glows in the dark so check out his Custom Transformers Bumblebee War for Cybertron figure to see that cool effect!

Bumblebee Transformers G1 Classics Custom by FrogDNA

Bumblebee Transformers G1 Classics Custom

Bumblebee Transformers G1 Classics Custom

Who can forget the pale yellow minibot from the 80's?  FrogDNA gives this Classics figure a vintage look with this Custom Transformers Classics G1 Bumblebee figure.  The Classics figure had a different color scheme that used a much brighter yellow with white accents.  This figure's main color is the classic Bumblebee yellow which is more subdued and the addition of the red Autobot symbols brings the figure back to its roots. Bumblebee's face also stands out more in this figure as the gray color is a great compliment to the yellow overall color.  Here is what FrogDNA's Custom Transformers Classics G1 Bumblebee figure looks like in car mode:

Battle Ops Bumblebee Custom Transformers 12" Figure

Packed full of lights, sounds, and standing 12" tall, Frenzy.Rumble's Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Battle Ops Bumblebee is larger than life (at least from a toy perspective).  Frenzy.Rumble packs all he can into every custom and here are a list of features for this one:

  • Electronic Sounds : Bumblebee has over 20 different voice clips and sound effects in robot and car modes. Including "Time to take out the trash", "I will protect you" and many more. Different sound/voice clips for each (Guardian Duty, Battle Duty, and Camaro modes)
  • Electronic Lights : Super bright BLUE LED light up eyes, 2 Red LED lights in his arm cannon, Light up head and fog lights (Camaro mode), light up shoulder cannons
  • Flip down battle mask
  • Left arm auto-transforms into arm cannon
  • Battle mask activates different sounds and phrases
  • Flip out cannons in both car and robot modes

If you look close, you can see some very fine battle damage detailing, which is very well placed in the figure.  The plastic really has the appearance of metal and the light effects are definitely not photo shopped.  Here is what the figure looks like in car mode:

Bumblebee Custom Transformers G1 Ark Autobot Collection by Payton34

Ark Autobot Charity Auction for the Make a Wish Foundation Spotlight: Bumblebee (Article 9 of 11)

One thing that struck me about Payton34's custom Bumblebee figure for the Ark Autobot collection for charity was the shade of yellow for Bumblebee, which matches exactly to the G1 figure from the 1980's.  Here is more about how he painted this great figure:

"I used Model Master bright yellow spray enamel to give the outer shell a more accurate color scheme. After that, I used Testors Flat Black Noir Mat for the bumper/fender areas as well as the arms/fists; Testors Flat White Blanc Mat for the headlights; Testors Red Rouge for the tail lights. Finally, I used Liquid Leaf Silver Argent for the metallic areas and topped it all off with a layer of Model Master Ultra Gloss Clearcoat"

This is another awesome custom for the Ark Autobot collection so be sure to place your bid as all proceeds go to the Make a Wish Foundation.

Bumblebee Transformers Human Alliance Voyager Class Custom by Metallichemist

Custom Transformers Bumblebee Human Alliance

Custom Transformers Bumblebee Human Alliance Voyager Class Figure

We finally get a Voyager Class figure worthy of the figure and Metallichemist has done an excellent job making this Transformers Human Alliance Bumblebee look like it could belong in the movie.  What I found odd about the movie was that the robots look dirty and dingy but when they transform into vehicles, they have a squeaky clean showroom shine.  Metallichemist has done a great job with the detailing of this figure to give it depth and character.  Here is how he describes his process: "Work done on BUMBLEBEE includes a full extensive repaint on the body with custom metallic paint to give a sense of weight.The completed paint job is scratched and brushed to achieve a worn out look that is fitting for the determined lieutenant battling against the Decepticons."  Head over to eBay to view more photos!

Kickin it old school, Xaviercal has given the Revenge of the Fallen Ratchet and Bumblebee a classic look with his Custom Revenge of the Fallen G1 Inferno and Ratchet figures.  Ratchet has been given a makeover with an Inferno red paint ap and styling while Bumblebee has been given a Red Alert transformation with trademark fire department logos and lights.  I love these types of crossovers and want to see more from the custom community so bring on the G1 and ROTF crossovers!  If you want to see more photos, head over to eBay and check out Xaviercal's Custom Revenge of the Fallen G1 Inferno and Ratchet figures.

Revenge of the Fallen Transformers Movie Spotlight Seller Sabrina Ng

What a huge opening weekend to the Revenge of the Fallen movie and one customizer has been pretty busy gearing up for the release.  This week, I am featuring Sabrina Ng's custom ROTF line up as she has many of the great figures up for sale this week.  All of the figures are excellently detailed with Sabrina's own style and interpretation of the color pallet.  Let's take a look at the line up:

Jetfire

Optimus Prime

Bumblebee

Bumblebee ROTF Transformers Custom Figure by Matt1989cars

Next up for the homage to the Revenge of the Fallen customs is Bumblebee and Matt1989cars has created a version that I would be proud to own with his Custom ROTF Transformers Bumblebee figure.  This figure looks great and thanks to some retooling by Hasbro to make this figure movie accurate, Matt1989cars has given it the paint aps he deserves.  You can either view more photos of this great figure or visit the Custom Transformers section of this site for more Revenge of the Fallen customs.

Bumblebee Henkei Transformers Custom Figure by Sabrina Ng

Sabrina Ng brings us her 4th installment in her Henkei series with her Custom Henkei Bumblebee Transformers figure.  One aspect that I love about her customs is she takes the time to get it right and she also pays homage to the G1 era with the paint aps.  Although the figure from the 80's was a canary yellow, the cartoon version was more an orangy yellow, which Sabrina captured nicely!  Along with giving Bumblebee realistic looking metal parts, the shine and gloss to the figure gives it that showroom finish.  She also has a Henkei Jetfire up this week as well so head over to eBay and check out both of her Custom Transformers figures.

Bumblebee 1974 Camaro Transformers Movie Custom by Crefigz

It seems like everything Crefigz touches, turn to gold and his Custom Transformers Movie Bumblebee is no exception.  Putting Crefigz's signature touch on this 1974 Camaro version, he has brought out the richness of color and detail in Bumblebee.  The original Hasbro produced figure pales in comparison and is really only used as the base model for this custom creation.  One aspect that I really love about this custom is that the great detail was paid to make this custom movie accurate, even down to the rust on the car mode.  Crefigz has a unique talent to make plastic look like metal but don't take my word for it.  Here is how Crefigz explains his process:

"Took over ages to complete this one and it will be the unique one and only from Crefigz.
Airbrushed with the IMPROVED signature shading style by Crefigz.  Completed with worn out effects based on The Transformers Movie 2007.Different perspectives of view under high or low lightings show different tones of shadings done on most of the parts.  This figure is not only special in the shading, it also has a layer of coating that makes it look ultra realistic and protects the paints from wearing off.  The whole figure has been painted all over again to bring out the realistic feeling the moment you look at it."

Head over to eBay and check out all of the photos of Crefigz's Custom Transformers Movie Bumblebee figure.

Custom Transformers Hot Rod Generation 1 by deathwind000

"My actions speak louder than my words."
deathwind000 takes the run of the mill Bumblebee 2008 Camaro and turns it into a Generation 1 Classic with this Custom Hot Rod. This is another great example of a talented customizer taking a great base and doing something extraordinary with it. In robot mode, I like the way deathwind000 did the metal paint aps on the arms and legs, giving them a weathered look and a feeling that Hot Rod has seen some action. He chose a great shade of red and the flames pay a nice homage to this G1 classic. An awesome license plate decal which says "Hot Stuff" rounds off the figure as well as the great head choice. This Custom Hot Rod ranks as one of the best G1 customs made out of a Transformers Movie Bumblebee. I know it is the holidays but put deathwind000's Custom Hot Rod on your watch list on eBay and be sure to make this one your own!
More about Hot Rod
Hot Rod is the all-American-boy Autobot. Not too sweet, not too sharp, not too snotty... not a goodie-goodie, but basically a typical adolescent who has dreams of doing great stuff and being as heroic and important as Optimus Prime and other famous and revered top Autobots. He tends to follow rules until they bug him - and he sometimes learns, to his regret, that disobeying wasn't exactly smart. And he often acts without thinking in an effort to do the right thing - and this gets him and sometimes his friends in trouble. But he's not afraid when trouble does arrive and is a brave and honorable fighter and friend. He is especially close to Kup, the grizzled old mentor of an Autobot, although he sometimes resents hearing "wisdom." And he likes Daniel, the Earth kid, a lot. (In a way, Hot Rod is big brother to Daniel - a role model - and Hot Rod knows it and takes the responsibility seriously.) In robot or automotive mode, Hot Rod is sometimes hot-headed, but always a well-meaning, admirable "lad" and popular with all who know him.

Now you can have the best of both worlds. Poor Jazz, he got all beat up in the movie. I'd post a big 'spoiler' message here but if you haven't seen the movie yet you’re probably not looking at this auction. Jazz gets ripped in half by Megatron in his gloriously short amount of fight time and looked pretty roughed up. Now you can have the figure that pops apart too, complete with hanging robo-guts and blue-blood detailing for all you morbid types. I've seriously nicked, scratched, dented, and dinged Jazz here for some pretty believable battle damage.

He’s been painted with various metallic shades, grime, weathering, scuffs, shadows, and highlights. You’ll notice his car-mode is damaged, check out the detailed crack-patterns on the windows! Missing lights, cracked headlights, gouges from Megatron’s claws, it’s all there. He comes with his screen-accurate Crescent-cannon that’s painted just as detailed as he is and fires a cool energy bolt. So, wishing you had a Jazz that was equally banged up in both modes? Know a friend who would weep like a baby if you showed them this? Then don’t pass this auction up!

Custom Bumblebee Transformers Movie Dio Brawl Battle by matt1989cars

Another Custom Battle Damaged Movie Dio has popped up on eBay! matt1989cars gives us his take on the Transformers Movie with this battle scene dio with an added twist. One of the most exciting parts of the Transformers Movie is when Bumblebee is racing down the streets (with some help of a tow truck) and opening up a can of whoop-ass on Brawl.

First, matt1989cars has sculpted Bumblebee's mask, which you don't see many out there. The mask adds to the realism and the use of the Bumblebee Evolutions camaro adds extra battle damage to the car.

Custom Transformers Movie Hot Rod by Todd’s Original Custom Designs

Todd's Original Custom Designs has a new take on a classic G1 figure with his Custom Hot Rod made from the 1978 Camaro Bumblebee mold from the Transformers Movie line. By using an Energon Rodimus head and matching the paint color pretty close, Hot Rod is reborn. The flames pay great respect to the G1 Hot Rodfigure. The weathering is nicely done and paint aps in robot mode look convincing although I don't really care for the pinkish/purplish accents. I would have either liked a nice metal or a black for those parts but that said, it is a nice figure and I enjoy seeing movie figure customs as G1 classics.

Custom Battle Damaged Bumblebee and Longarm Transformers Movie Diorama by passiondesignsinc

One of the most gut wrenching parts of the Transformers Movie is when Starscream rips through the city and sends a hail of missiles raining down on the Autobots and leaves Bumblebee in disarray in the aftermath. passiondesignsinc has captured the feeling, mood, and what it would be like to witnesses this first hand with his Custom Battle Damaged Bumblebee and Longarm Transformers Movie Diorama

. As he describes in his auction page below, he is really excited to bring something different to the collectors of custom Transformers:
"Now this is a custom that I'm very excited about. It's a slight recreation of a battle scene with in this summer's blockbuster movie "Transformers". """"" Spoilers""" Now Bumblebee gets blasted during the big fight and loses his legs. Next thing you know, his new human friends are straping him to a towtruck and helping him to keep fighting. The minute I saw the Longarm Towtruck Figure I had to do this diorama. But with a slight added bonus Longarm comes with flashing lights, a trick I learned from Jin using Barricade roof lights . Bumblebee has been customized for battle damaged, re-paint from different metallic washes, drybrushing etc .... Longarm also has slight been repaint, the same, but with running lights. This auction is for 2 custom Transformers and the diorama based! . It's a 3 for 1 deal, get while its hot!!!!!!!"

I personally love the city scape that he designed as his creation looks like all hell broke loose on the streets (you can even see water effects from the busted fire hydrant). As for the Transformers themselves, passiondesignsinc has taken some liberty in his interpretation of what happened to Bumblebee in the movie (getting ripped at the legs not at the waist) but he explains his decision in his own words, "it's my creation" and he wanted to keep the ability to transform Bumblebee and breaking the legs simply would not have worked. I actually think this was a brilliant idea as you can do so much more with the dio this way.
If you notice carefully, he has tried to bring a human element to Bumblebee with the creation of an exposed robotic spine from a Doc Oc tentacle. This really adds a higher level of detail and goes well beyond the interpretation of the movie and delves deeper into the mechanics and underlying construction of Bumblebee. I like the way he used scrap wire to give that freshly shredded look to the wire as it really looks like Bumblebee has a spine that connects and gives him the ability to move his arms and legs.
Go check out passiondesignsinc's Custom Battle Damaged Bumblebee and Longarm Transformers Movie Diorama as it is a real treat to see something different in the Transformers Customs arena. I am super impressed by his work, making the decision to deviate from the movie, and the overall quality of the custom work as this dio is on steroids and there are so many possibilities for display!

Also, check out his website for more information on how he created this awesome dio! For other Custom Transformers figures, head over to eBay!

Bumblebee Transformers Movie Custom Made from KFC Boxes

What happens when a boy cannot afford Hasbro made Transformers? The end result, and a lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken, is this Custom Bumblebee from the Transformers Movie. Here is a summary of the translated blog where this first appeared:

He loved absolutely the Transformers movie and after watching it decides to show his passion by creating this awesome model which had more than 60 movable joints and 36 cm tall. 23 more pics of the beautiful Transformers model after the jump."

I am simply astonished that this person can create such a masterpiece out of KFC boxes. The picture literally speak for themselves:





Prowl Transformers Movie Generation 1 Deluxe Custom by jin saotome

One of the classic Generation 1 Transformers is reborn from the 2009 Camaro Bumblebee Deluxe mold. Jin Saotome brings us this Custom Prowl, modeled after the 1980's classic Generation 1 Style. What really sets this piece off is the new head that was put on the figure. In the black and white style of the older police cars, Jin really brought the features that make Prowl a force to contend with! With these awesome G1 customs hitting eBay, Michael Bay should be taking notes for future Transformer icons to include in the sequel!

Jin explains this custom Prowl in more detail: "This auction is for an 6” tall custom Transformers ‘Movie Prowl’ figure and soon-to-be-made weapon. I ran out of time before my auction but he will come with a weapon or two. I’ll have them added to the description before the auction ends. Prowl has multiple points of articulation, far too many for me to count so I’m not even going to try. This means you can pose Ratbat here in all sorts of awesome Deception-arresting poses and he’ll look great in every one. He transforms similar to the Bumblebee 08 figure he was based on and changing his form around won’t affect the paint job at all. Instructions for the 08 Bumblebee are included.

 



This custom has been painted with an exceptional level of detail, and with paint that’s not going to rub or flake off. Handle it, pose it, just don’t give it to your little brother to play outside with. You’ll find that my custom figure designs are durable and look great as well. Now you can have the best of both worlds. What do you mean you didn’t see Prowl in the movie? You missed him? Ah-hah, just kidding! While we wish he was in the new Transformers movie we can only hope he shows up in the sequel. However I really wanted to make him and this is my vision of what he could look like. Obviously he’s modeled after the 08 Concept Camaro as Bumblebee is but styled in a police-theme. Prowl has a super-slick-n-shiny paint job, clear red lights on top (sorry, couldn’t make them light up this time, no room for the electronics) metallic weathering and highlights on his robot form, and awesome police-decals! He has an all-new head too and transforms basically like the 08 Bumblebee. You can adjust his chest section if you want but I leave it flat for a more G1/Alternator Prowl look. I’ll include a weapon or two later in the auction, I was pressed for time and didn’t get them finished just yet. I also apologize about the blinding white on him, my camera really picks up light colors and there's a lot of detail that's blurry there. Sorry about that! Trust me tho, he looks stunning up close! So, need a cool cruising cop for your collection? Know a friend with a shelf full of police cars? Then don’t pass this auction up!"

Custom 2008 / 2009 Camero Bumblebee by Jin Saotome

Having not seen any 2009 Camero Bumblebee's in the stores, I am tempted to buy this work of art. After being criticized for the poor condition of Bumblebee's vehicle mode as a '77 Camero, he scans a passing 2009 preproduction Camero and Jin has captured Bumblebee's movie essence with this latest custom. Aside from the immaculate paint job, Jin has made some other additions that compliment the figure nicely. First, he provided a movie accurate head, which many of the current Transformers toys are lacking. Second, he added a removable arm cannon that slips off his shoulder so you can have increased poseability. It is this attention to detail that makes Jin's customs very sought after. Jon goes on to explain more about his custom:

"This custom has been painted with an exceptional level of detail, and with paint that’s not going to rub or flake off. Handle it, pose it, just don’t give it to your little brother to play outside with. You’ll find that my custom figure designs are durable and look great as well. Now you can have the best of both worlds. It’s Bumblebee! This time the bee sports a new look with a new movie-accurate head and removable arm-cannon. He’s been repainted and detailed to look like the movie character with different effects such as shading, highlights, metallic paints, and weathering to his robot parts. Slip his right arm off at the shoulder and you can replace it with the cannon-arm, also jointed at the elbow for maximum poseability. Tho I don’t have his battlemask-head ready yet, it will probably be included in the auction so look for the added pictures later. Bumblebee transforms like the store-bought toy but it’s best to remove his new head so you don’t get it banged up underneath the vehicle. Oh, and no panel lines in car mode! There, he looks nice and clean this time. So, were you looking for a super-detailed Bumblebee with a face anyone can love? Know a friend that needs a hand? A cannon-hand? Heheh.. Then don’t pass this auction up!"

The cannon hand is a very welcome and much needed addition to Bumblebee. I have provided a side by side comparison of Jin's Custom and Hasbro's version. The cannon is definitely an addition that will net this custom big bucks in the auction arena:

Jin's custom is available for bidding on eBay or you can check out more Custom Bumble Movie Transformers on my ActionFigureCustoms.com website.

Custom Transformers Movie Bumblebee by studiosunny

Hasbro has never captured the grit and roughness with the Transformers movie toys. I came across this custom that I found on eBay and the seller studiosunny has done a tremendous job getting the fine detail with this 1977 Custom Camero Bumblebee figure. In his own words, he describes his process:

“I spent around 2.5 weeks to complete the little art work with passion and dedication.. The original piece is totally a piece of kid toy, the Bumblebee is without SOUL or Essence...so I focus my art work too add such elements, which turns out to be more realistic and dynamic after finishing...
Coloring is always my first concern, I added substantial weathering, different layers of smoke/dirty/rusting applied to the whole body, and trying to keep a sharp and smart unique yellow for Bumblebee, and I had used acrylic paint, back and forth dry brushing, to balance the weathering look for both classic car and robot mode for Bumblebee, all painting is based on the publication from Transformers movie guides...

I also added all movie like color/weathering/massive modifications to all the mechanical parts from Bumble Bee, for example,6 metallic twistable metal wire *at diameter 5mm are attached around the arms, wrist and legs, and those little work doesnt affect the transformation but certainly looks better afterwards. And the original screw holes are covered by custom made plastic mechanical capes, there may be around 10 screw holes around the body, I don’t remember now, just work and work...

And the original hands, are coming with 2 big holes, totally looks awful...I cut the hands without regret...then I have custom made 2 pair of mechanical hands for Bumblebee: (a) 2 hands with open figures; and (b) 2 hands in close figures.. And you may change the hands easily. These hands could hold the custom made ALLSPARK CUBE . The original AUTOBOT label is not so obvious and sharp so I have custom made it and re-finish from Bumblebee chest...”
