Dotm torq-v

So in this case DOTM does not stand for Dark of the Moon, it stands for Day of the Machines. This is my Day of the Machines TORQ-V.

He is made using DOTM Autobot Armor Topspin. I removed Topspin's head and neck and some of the spikes as well as both fists and his right claws. I took off the Nascar window and cut parts from the back half of the car and attached them to the legs. I gave him a gun/knife attached to his right arm and some exhast pipes from a spare Clocker I had. I then repainted him leaving much of the original gray car parts. I spent a great amount of time on the face, which was Topspin's chest. With the exception of flat black and flat aluminum, all the paint colors are custom. I got the purple windows by first spraying the blue plastic with clear mat finish so the paint would have something to stick to and then using a very thinned down red paint.

I feel that this is a great upgrade to TORQ III. The aesthetic I was going for was an industrial looking bot that could have easily been built on Earth. And ofcourse he needed the giant pink face.

Let's get it out of the way: KRAANG

What a brilliant twist on facechests. I feel like this could scale really well with legends and cyberverse. Nice work!

Thanks everyone.

I gotta admit, when I finished painting him, I did notice the similarities to Krang and his mechanical suit (not the King Kong Bundy one).

So if anyone wants to do a TMNT crossover figure inspired by this, go for it.

I agree. When the chest was unpainted, I had no idea how creepy it would turn out. But then again, TORQ III had one creepy looking face to begin with.
