    Hey guys,

    It's been a while since I've had the chance to work on any customs, but here is one that I've been meaning to do for a while.

    SLICER started life as a $5 flea market find and with some AWESOME repro parts from Darkov, a little paint and some decals I printed out he's gotten this far.

    He's still a WIP needing a few more paint apps & a few more decals.

    I need some opinions on which way to go as far as the wheels are concerned. Should I leave them blue or go with a red that matches his hood decal?

    Once he's done I'll post some new pics.

    This really works as a G1 Slicer figure.
    I like car mode and your stickers.
    Great work man:)

    That's a LOT of blue there. Perhaps red rims to add some balance?

    I think the wheels would look good in white - something to break up the car mode a bit, ya know?

    That's a very cool custom! It's refreshing to see a G1 Wheeljack custom that doesn't involve "Marlboor" in some way.

    Also, I agree with painting the rims red. It might make him look like Punch/Counterpunch a bit, but it should help balance things (plus the rims on the original AM Slicer's vehicle were red, too)
