    You'd think that after seeing the head and arms, we'd be used to this kind of awesomeness?! Oh no! This really does keep getting more and more amazing!

    Can't wait to see the torso pull all this together! :D

    Claudio, what do you mean exactly with the sentence 'Laminate parts A3 and A23 to A34 on black cardstock'? It stands on the Head page.

    Well, it means you must glue them to a black paper, so their white face become black. You can also color them black, however they won't get rigid enough.

    Wow, what a great looking model! I am thinking about starting this but I have just one question. What are the springs in the arms for. Are they necessary, or can the model be built without them?

    Thank you for your comment!

    The spring is not necessary. You can build the arm without it.

    bumblebee head

    Claudio,
    I am finding that the detail around Bumblebee's eyes are difficult to see. It's the black on black, the details seem to fade. I am looking at step 17. parts A27 and A28. I am not sure what angle or curve they should take. I put on the left one and it looks rather odd. I put it on as a curve on side of the inner eye socket.
