Just got this need opinions

my friend picked up this for me a bumblebee autobot i recommend not to buy it very cheap parts fall off of it and it took so long how to figure out to transform it into a camaro but my friend recommended that i should paint it blue and white like my camaro and put it on the rear dash or display it as carshows with the real camaro

what do you guys think? i feel if i paint it it would no longer be bumble bee but on the other hand it might be pretty cool
some feedback please

Paint it. Can't you just buy another one if you don't like it?

if i buy another one it will be the hasbro ultimate bumblebee i think the parts are diecast metal so its much durable and most likely the arms wont fall off when you adjust them

The transformation difficulty on that one looks like it's a little out of your league. I've got one based on a WRX that's a lot like it, and if you don't get a little widget in just the right place when you're transforming it, it ends up looking like it got badly rear-ended.

Parts coming off are usually a sign you're trying to bend something in a way it's not supposed to bend.

Hey, this is off topic, lots of things to talk about in here.


As for the toy, its yours, do what you think is cool.

it isn't meant to be super indestructible. its only $11.88 at wal-mart, and for ages 5+.
yeah, it might not be super quality... but it's cool none the less.
my nephews recognize my car as being the Camaro like Bumblebee (just different color), so I got one for each of them, and one for me.

paint it, and buy a second one to keep original.

I have a Bumblebee transformer at home that stands about 2 plus feet tall. It is awesome. I will have to take some pictures and post for those who like this kind of stuff. As a car it is really awesome as well. Found it a Wal-Mart last November for a $70 bucks. Well worth it to me.

Hey dont worry about it... if you want to paint it buy one to test it.. and if it works out then you have one painted and the other original. and if it doesn't well..... you still have the original..
