    Hey guys! As some of you know I've been working on multiple commissions and this lil' guy is the first across the finish line! This is actually a gift for the youngest and newest member of the TFW2005 boards, Brody! Son on my good bud and fellow member Wasp819.
    He's just a simple repaint of BB with a 90% scratch built head. Used Krylon and Tamiya paints and hit him with testors Dullcoat to finish off that signature "Animated matte" look. Oh, and before anybody mentions it he is sans stripes as per Wasps request. I apologize for the lint on the backdrop. The cat got pretty comfy just before I started the shoot.
    Enjoy little Brody-bud!!

    That looks like something Hasbro would do. And I would buy it too! Great work! :thumb

    Like many others have said, that head is absolutely perfect. And the paint work looks great. I can't say i like this shade of green for Tapout, though, but that's just personal preference.

    Any chance we'll see a Glyph anytime soon?

    Glyph would look pretty cool animated but these things are just too damn hard to take apart and even harder to put back together correctly. I think my last one, for a while, is going to be Brawn from Soundwave. Which is almost completed!

    glyph would be a nightmare because her body is slender, or yeah you could cheat and just repaint the activators/deluxe BB mold but then it wouldnt look like her body much,

    I personally like the green spoony used for tapout (just ask spoonman how picky i am)

    This looks nice - never noticed how much the mold looked like ROTF Skids until you gave it this paintjob...
