Introducing Bumblebee

I started to work on a paper version of the 2007 Transformers Bumblebee.

I’m planning to design the 2008 Camaro robot version. Also, I’d like to make it poseable. That means, it will have rotating joints including fingers ad toes.

First step is to design and build skeleton and all joints. I’ll post some pics here when I have a couple parts done.

According to the movie, Bumblebee is 18 feet high. I want to build it on 1:12 scale, that means, 18 inches high.
