Slapdash and Lube, with Hosehead and Muzzle

This unit started as a joke that rather got out of hand as I went.
Nightbeat is one of my favorite marvel comic charaters, and when I found out that he had a 'universe' toy I was delighted and planned to get him once I had a chance. Looking up some new information about him, I found out that another repainted Hot Shot toy that I had (Getaway) had been a team-mate of his in DW comics. That lead to me taking a headless Armada Hot Shot and giving him a TFA Blurr head and new paint job to make him into Siren. Then I decided well, why not take another damaged Hot shot toy (Blue Cybertron mold with a broken waist and hips) and turn him into Joyride with a swivel waist? Then I looked up which characters had worked with Nightbeat from marvel and DW and on a whim looked up the number of different Hot Shot molds and found out that I had enough variations to make the WHOLE team out of Hot Shot molds... Well, I owned all of them except a second red legends Hot Shot and Nightbeat!
So with everyone except Playback, Lug and Nightbeat finished, I figured I might as well show my insanity.
I'll be showing off the team in groups of two, for the most part the 'master pairs.
Lube and Slapdash have the least work out of the unit. Rev simply gained a small amount of silver paint and panel-lining. Slapdash on the other hand gained a lovely coat of a deep blue paint for some highlight points. There are no pictures of Slapdash's alt-mode as one of our dogs sort-of ate the transformation sheet

Hosehead is a repainted Cybertron Defense Hot Shot with red heavily drybrushed over his blue plastic, then a light drybrushing of silver, he will eventually get Lug (made from a modified and heavily repainted legends red alert) once I can nab another 'red alert'

Muzzle is Armada Hot Shot (now Siren's) micron partner Jolt repainted and panel-lined and now just waiting for Nightbeat.

Hosehead is great looking man,but you can still see blue in a few spots,if you could go back and touch those up then you would take this from a great custom to a SUPERB custom,in my opinion.
