Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Bumblebee is the "little brother" of the heroic Autobot faction, constantly striving to prove himself in the eyes of the taller, stronger robots that he respects - especially his leader, Optimus Prime. So strong is this admiration toward others, he takes risks that put him in danger. Although a bit of a wise-cracker, he is a capable and reliable messenger and spy, his small size allowing him to go places that his larger comrades cannot. He is highly fuel efficient, has great visual acuity, is particularly adaptable to undersea environments and transforms into a Volkswagen Beetle.

-----
Another mish-mash design of G1 Bumblebee and the comics. Probably the easiest one to make. The only thing difficult was to accurately re-create his chubby face.

This sim is a TEEN. :D

*~Mega thanks goes to Lacitar13 for the design sheets!~*

First and foremost: THANK YOU! Your Bumblebee is AMAZING. So oldschool. It makes me incredibly happy. I squealed like a fangirl when I saw it. Bumblebee's my favourite. I'm so glad to finally have a sim of him to play with.

Bumblebee's face disappears on me, too. Oddly enough, though, it always happened when he played red hands with Optimus, so I never got to see anything else do it. So there's a running joke around the house about Optimus stealing faces. 8D

Also, when Bumblebee grows up, he gets a normal (albeit relatively fat/stretched out) face and Optimus's body. He retains his "hair," if I recall correctly.

Also, on a somewhat amusing note, if you want to see the ugliest sims children to ever exist, have them reproduce. I should have taken pictures when I attempted the expiriment, but I forgot to. D:

I should have taken pictures, but the thought escaped me.

Default baby TF's
hey, I think you are right. Optimus was playing with him when his face disappeared.

I have to agree... TF's and humans resulted in very very ugly babies! Esp. the Optimus baby, his cheeks were sunken in and it was almost like he was missing his jaw lol.

Machines aren't meant to breed. XD Though I did see a youtube video of OP getting abducted and having an alien baby... which ends up looking like a normal human baby instead. *lol* Odd ball~

I don't know why Bumblebee's face disappears. I don't have that problem so I can't figure out as to what could be causing it.

Eh.. it says it will work with only the sims 2 base, but its not installing, whenever I try to it says I don't have the expansion packs needed for some items. But I can't find ANYWHERE what is ACTUALLY needed to download this, I have nightlife and OFB, I'd really like to know what these EPs these transformers actually require, 'cause obviously, it isn't just the base game

No EP is needed. Use Clean-Installer or Q-Xpress and it should work.

Great Scott! All of your TF skins are EPIC! As a long time G1 TF fan, PLEEEEASE keep them coming!

Is a Gundam or two out of the question? :o

My gosh... This is absolutely fabulous! I don't even think there are words to describe how incredibly fantastic your TF's skins are.. The amount of detail alone you put into your skins are, to put it lightly, scary. -- Such a wonderful job you've done. It's just too good.

This is going to sound stupid---*again*...
It's been 23 years too long... but any amount would have been too long.

But yeah, finally. You doing just fine there, girl. You Roll.
Cuts the nightmares a bit too.

Just read the rules at the bottom of the download page for BumbleBug: "no purely thanks or positive posts." Period

Normally, I don't take idiotic orders, but I make an exception here, 'cause it's a decent site, decent creators (mostly), and unlucky sysops who have to make rules they don't like either---but it's the only way this site can operate---and be free, and everything else that is important to pretty much everyone here.
So. Negative?

The last 23 years have been Hell.

That negative enough to allow the post?

*has the same problem with Bumblebee's face disappearing* Wonder if it would be possible to make his white skin/blue optics a makeup option instead of a skin tone like you did Megatron's and Starscream's?

I really love your transformers. thank you. Maybe next time you can make more Autobots like Jazz, Ironhide & Ratchet, 2 autobots against 5 decepticons is unfair u know lol. :D

His face keeping disappearing on me too. I recreated him about three times on CAS, and it keeps disappearing on me. I haven't used the Aging off cheat either.

Random pointless tip: If you want to play The Sims 2 in windowed mode, right click on the icon on your desktop and go to properties. In the target box, add -w at the end of the quotation mark.

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, the whole damn family was drunk as a louse.

Soooooo the Bumblebee Sim has been out for how long, and nobody, not even the creator, knows how to fix the no-face problem? I've looked EVERYWHERE, and even gone to (shudder) Yahoo Answers, but nobody has a clue. Who HASN'T had the face disappearing problem with Bumblebee? List your compie stats and expansions packs and whatnot! Maybe we can find out what's going on. Look, I'll start:

Computer: Dell Inspiron 640 m. laptop
Game: Sims 2 /w Nightlife
Operating system: Windows XP
Face status: Disappears immediately after moving into house. If saved, picture from Neighborhood View shows him as faceless, but his Live Mode icon doesn't.

Come on, guys, our sweet little Bumblebee doesn't get enough attention as it is. We've got to get to the bottom of this for Bug-Lovers everywhere! (or, at least, on this website...)

I know how to fix the Bumblebee. The only problem is I can't fix him at this time. I'm currently using a very crappy computer with limits. I can't even run three programs at a time which is very fusterating. Until I can save enough money for a better computer I am stuck dreaming....

Thank you so much for Bumblebee and other TF's!!
I guess, another playing-sims-period is really close to me)) just need to clear some space on my hd.
And I saw a question here about sims-Prowl and(or) sims-Jazz - I'd be glad to play with those TF's too. *shy*

Thanks Nova L for you hard work. I put them all in game, Was wonder why I couldnt find Bumblebee in with the adults, till I read some comments that he's a teen.

when you do get a new computer, will you be makeing the clothes for all ages at least teen to elder. It's going to look funny when Bumblebee goes to college.

I had a little problem with Bumblebee, but it isn't the face dissapearing, when I try and make the Sim, he doesn't have his 'hair'...

I have tried taking it off and downloading it again but it hasn't been working, I have had a problem with all of the Transformers skins, Megatron doesn't have his 'hair', Optimus is missing his body and so are Soundwave, Screamer, Warp and T.C??

"Who uses ice as a weapon? What are you, a refridgerator?!!" :D
