    Breakdown here was another of my early commisions, and was actually planned before the Mirage toy was even officially released! The head is a modded Jazz head, and is the only Decepticon to not have red eyes. The gun is another leftover MG Gundam gun (the very first, as a matter of fact)

    The biggest challenge for Breakdown, naturally, were the stripes. The lines of the larger stripes were lightly etched into the plastic so I could make sure everything lined up properly when the disassembled parts were painted. The lower stripes(and "Ford GT" logo) are custom decals, and it did take a few tries to get the blue's matching. Besides that, pretty simple repaint.

    Next up, G2 Grimlock.

    Wow that's pretty much factory work right there. Hasbro missed the boat in not releasing all the Stunticons as autobot repaints such as this. My Breakdown was one of the few decepticons without red eyes too, but I painted mine light blue to contrast the red.

    I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've seen a finished Breakdown from the GT mold, which is one of my favs for sure

    It's great to see another fantastic piece, man :thumb  I love all of the treatments you've given this guy. The head rocks, the paint apps are stellar, and everything just has a nice flow to it. My only suggestion would be to have a silver faction symbol on the hood, but that's so minor to this piece. Great work man :thumb
