    So what if he did? It's his toy, he can do what he wants with it.

    Looks good dude!

    I don't care what anyone does with their toys it's their toy... it wasn't a serious question... Alt Mirage has gotten to be just as rare as Hot Rod... He's working a cool custom.

    Interesting. Cant believe you used such a rare and expensive toy to do this though. Still hopefully the end results will be worth it, not many people do blurr.

    I just finished my alt blurr (finished a lot of customs lately but just been too lazy to get pics) with the same head but different mold cuz I wanted all the post-movie bots to have different car molds ie I can have a Blurr and Hot Rod being fords.

    Yours looks freaking great though. I'm sure it will turn out looking really nice. Keeps us posted!

    Thanks for the comments guys. Theres always some controversy repainting the rare guys aint there? got the same comments when I did nemmy. But to be honest, in Australia, there is no such thing as a common alt!

    I do have a couple of heads, mostly movie toys. The spare alt heads generally sit atop those guys at the moment.
    The paint is a tamiya metallic light blue

    I partially took him apart. Undid all the screws but I dont trust myself enought to tackle the pins

    Like I said, they are all rare in Australia. From what I see, they are all becoming rather rare. I hadto do Blurr to go with my Ultra Magnus (thanks Vector, RIP buddy), Hotrod, Arcee WIP andthe to be started Kup and Springer. Makes a good set!

    Yeah that was the plan, was gonna see how they came out and I kinda like em

    I seen them this morning, looking good. I couldn't do another Corvette as my Springer was planned as one and already have two blue vettes

    Thanks for the feedback everyone, might get into some of the touch ups today

    Regards

    JL

    JL, that's a great answer to the "rare" toy question for customizing an Alt. I don't think one can get any Alt in the US at their local Wal*mart anymore . . . [I don't know about the rest of you, but I see more of Alt Rodimus on ebay for a better price than Alt Mirage]

    That all being said, looks like you gots yourself another sweet custom! Perhaps it's the yellow and red parts (that you may end up painting or may not), but I'm really getting an Armada vibe from him right now. Just don't tell Squall :lol 

    Keep up the great work man! :thumb

    Blurr's looking good. Love the Ford GT mold.


    I got my Rodimus at SDCC at $24.99 so it's not rare for me, I'm having it painted into Dragstrip by Sculpt-bot.

    I plan on commissioning a scratchbuilt Hot Rod.

    Some of the yellow will stay, but not sure about the red. There will be some darker blue and some silver to cover the spray damage

    I look at it this way. For every "rare" figure that gets Kitbashed. The value of other
    peoples goes up. So really we are doing you a favor by making a "rare" figure even more "rare".:lol 
    I've got Rodimus sitting here on my desk, not just waiting to be repaint but also modified. :ev:
