The inspiration for this custom came from Weirdwolf and Monzo and Homer Simpson from the Transfans Discussion board. They had posted a topic about G1 characters they'd like to have seen switch factions, and with the release of the Bumblebee and Cliffjumper keychains it was pretty easy for me to bring Grumblebee to life. Later, Dylan from the board made a nifty box art replica that I used for the Tech Spec:

I had an even easier time doing this custom than when I did Glyph, because the black plastic on Grumblebee didn't have to be painted at all. Here are the colors I did use, though:
  • Chaos Black (Games Workshop)
  • Blood Red (Games Workshop)
  • Purple Metal Flake (Testors Spray Enamel)
