    A slightly different Mindwipe

    Hi all,

    I love G1 Mindwipe, but there were a couple of issues I had with him:
    - exciting batmode, but somewhat dull robotmode
    - due to the black plastic feet, his legs look like giant poodle dog legs
    - the head is extremely cubic and a little too big imo
    - the hips are huge solid black cylinders

    So, I spiced up robotmode a bit by painting his feet purple, giving him toes to resonate his beasty batmode. The knees were also painted purple to give his lower legs the wholesome look, to reduce the poodle dog legs effect.
    I also added chrome strips to his hips to break up the huge blackness. I used the same colorblocking technique for his head, by painting the upper parts grey. This gives the optical effect of being less cubic and less big. Then, I also silvered the bat fingers on his wings and I did some custom sticker work on him.

    Also; I sanded down the sliding mechanisms of his hands. The tab of his right hand is broken off, so sanding the sliding mechanism down helps in getting the hands out. I only needed to put some stickers in there, so the mechanism gets friction at the extended position, so the hands keep sticking out when you want them to do so, yet they're easy to extend from hidden position.
