This makes me tear up a little. When I was a little kid...like 7 or 9 or so I had to go to the hospital. I was told that my Great Grandfather was sick and he would be getting better soon. I was lied to. He was dying of cancer. When I got to the hospital I was given by him Sludge Spike and Slag. To this day Slag is still my favorite and hes the only one that survived the many moves and whatnot over the decades since. I have always wanted to see a Masterpiece Slag and this is about as close to perfection for that ideal as one can get. Bravo sir. Really....this is great!

That is a very sad and touching story. Slag is still not done yet I would say 85%. I hope that when I am done it will tick all the boxes for for you. You must have thought highly of your Great Grandfather and im sure the lie was to protect you in some way or another.thanks for you comment.
all the best Dawgstar

This is fantastic work..The only thing i'd maybe suggest..his horns..the fact that the sides are flat, just look off..seems like it should be rounded more. And I know far too late..but as big and bulky as he is..those little skinny legs just seem..so out of place on him. But if they hold him up and work, I guess that isn't much of an issue. Again though, amazing looking work here..hats off to ya.

This is super awesome, though... I hate to get into this so late in the bills on you, but his upper legs are so tiny! Any plans to maybe build them up?? If it's even possible that is.

Hi guys. Thanks for the recent input regarding the horns and and legs. I am working on different horns and intended on make interchangeable types from the start. as for the legs um I'm not sure if wider legs will work but I may look into them once I have finished other parts. when I get time I will be cast the lower arm and hands so that I can work on the flip in style hands so it will not be a parts former.
Will update you soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Horns

Here are the New Horns what do you think?
I got some styrene tube and heated it with a hot air gun, filled with milliput then sanded and painted.














Thanks for looking
