How Hasbro should have made Gen. Impactor in the first place!

Repainted the head of Impactor orange with gold eyes and painted part of his chest violet. Did my best to paint match. While not perfect (and it matches better in the pics than in real life), I think its better than some Hasbro paint matching, so I'm proud. All hand painted, which was an experiment, since I'm usually to impatient to do it. Now just needs a new harpoon arm!





I'll try to post some alt mode pics once I give the painted parts a clear coat.

Looks much better now. Are you going to keep working on it any? If so, why not go all out and repaint the whole Ruination set? (I know I will at some point)

Thanks!

Thought about it, and I don't think I will for a few reasons:

1. I find Roadbuster to be good enought as is.
2. I'm probably gonna replace the Jumpstarters with the Mechideas ones when I have the cash (though I may at least try the heads).
3. Whirl's getting a better toy anyway (though I may try to turn him into Rotorstorm).

haha Well:

1. Then don't paint him : P
2. Oh gods yes the Mech Ideas ones are amazing. But they don't really match the aesthetic of the others in the set too well. Also, this way you could make a G1 accurate Ruination. OwO (well, as accurate as you can be for a character that never existed in G1...)
3.) See number two. lol

Yup, it is. He's the only one with a Wrecker symbol, but it's kind of blurry on mine, not sure if they are all like that?

That said, I really like what you did here! Might have to do the same as well.
