    Here's another project I've had finished but just now got around to taking pics of

    Blurr is from a Cybertron Blurr head I got for a fantastic price from board member videriant, thanks man! I only added light blue paint to a few areas that were previously red. I saw the gun mod a long time ago and I figured why not do it for this guy. Thanks to clay for the video tutorials on using the hood as a shield. I can't think of a better character to do this mod on.

    Springer is a combination of parts from Camshaft as a base and BT blue Prowl for a few grey parts so less paint was needed. I used a Tracks head as many others have in the past. I originally painted it dark grey cuz that's all I had but I recently bought the light grey and I like it better that way.

    Magnus is Wheeljack I aquired in a trade from a board member here but I can't recall who at the moment. He came with scratched/damaged stripes so I just removed them entirely with 90% rubbing alcohol. Unfortunately the black on the bottom of the front bumper came off so I had to repaint it. Got the head from an Alt Prime, that became Ironhide

    Lastly a group shot but where's Arcee? She'll be coming as soon as I buy the head from Sculpt-bot... (should she be an S2000 or a Ford GT?)

    Yeah that's the way I was leaning towards I think I'll do that, especially cuz I'd rather her be different from Hot Rod. Thanks for the input

    Thanks again for doing those videos it takes the guess work out of doing one of your modifications.

    The gun mod is simple too. Just round out the ends of the original gun little by little until the missiles holes fit snuggly over the gun tips. I chose to round out the gun tips instead of widening the missile holes so they'll still fit back in their original location when transformed

    Blurr- Yeah with the shield mod clay came up with the hood actually just pops back on. The missles from the gun mod I did pop off and back in their original location

    Magnus - the doors just swing back around

    As far as car modes I'll take pics eventually I'm just being lazy.

    Lucs!!...you have turned into a bashing factory bud!!..:D 

    I like them all...love what you did for Blurrs gun.....thats slick...I like it :thumb 

    As far as Arcee, the S2000 is probably the most fem mode out of the Alt line...its what I used for my Alt Dirty Gurl...(something my wife had me to make...:lol )....but, we all saw TFmasters Arcee from the Ford GT...thats killer too....

    Looking forward to your next batch! :thumb

    Nice work, I think that I might need to copy that gun for my alt turbomaster Boss when he gets on the way.
