    Poor man, more like rich man! I like this MORE than the original. The head is 10 times better!

    It actually is a rich man's version, the blue looks good and the head is even a better fit than the one they used on the original

    Agreed. I just got this mold courtesy of Orion_Prime48 and you did an awesome job of the repaint.

    Nice job... the head is way better than the "official" one. Energon Inferno as the base, right? I like the colours too.

    I've got one of these on the agenda (not painted yet), with a G1 Topspin-based head... but I'm thinking I like this one better.

    thanks! actually i didn't have any spare heads lying around so i used the KO's just sanded and sculpted to make him more nightbeat-y. :) 

    i also got rid of his powerlinx function so he can have a proper head mounted on a believable neck on the torso that rotates 180 degrees.

    Ah... I see! From a distance it looked like a modified Energon Inferno, but now I can tell it's based on the original head.

    still that's not a bad idea, i might take that inferno head up with another E-hot shot, maybe make a Siren custom. the inferno body can be used for a soundwave i guess. :)

    Nice work. The head is great, and I like the dark paints used on him.
