    I repainted him up as Gobot Turbo. I was going to do Scooter but I think Turbo is cooler.

    TURBO! What? That's my favorite Go-bot! I like what you've done but a blue windshield and a bit more red on the head would seal the deal for me

    Actually hadn't thought about this guy in a while. I just got Aveo Swerve and that's who he will be in my collection. Not really a sports car but the look is very close

    Glad you like it. You can blame the non blue winshield and the non red head on my laziness :)  . I did the top of the head black like if he's wearing a bike helmet.

    I don't care for Animated at all, series or toys, but they do seem to make great Gobot repaints. Makes me want to see a Gobots Animated.

    I have to echo Lucs on the windshield and the helmet, but other than that, beautiful paint work as usual, Solrac!

    That's great. He looks pretty good in those colors too.

    Hmmm...I guess with those colors, I could have called him Sideswipe. I did paint his head black after all.

    The red redeco reminds me of the bike from Akira.

    But it was blue before you painted it! Maybe you were too lazy to mask it :tongue: 

    But you wouldn't have us complaining about the windshield and head color though. We'd be saying, "why aren't his hands black?" and "where's Sunstreaker?" You can almost never win with us TF fans.

    I like the colors and such but for whatever reason I'd rather have seen prowl as a redone scooter, and maybe picked jazz for turbo..

    But still wicked repaint!

    True. :)  I didn't think of Turbo until after it was already painted.

    I was thinking of Scooter originally but he just seemed too cool for him. I don't know. He was just sitting these unfinished for the longest time. I just wanted to get it done and sell it. I'm sick of animated.

    I'm not familiar with the character, but the brush works looks great. :thumb

    I can't believe I took so long to reply to this thread. This is really nice work. Despite being a motorcycle, it still screams Turbo to me. I know you're sick of Animated, but you should try making another Turbo out of TFA Blurr.

    No more animated figures for me. Feel free to make a Turbo with Blurr.

    Ah, seems i got on this thread at just the right time. I'm not familiar with the character either, but i saw a digibash of Blurr as Turbo, with remolded head, which looked great.

    Obviously, this one still rocks, and at least he's not friggin' Scooter!!!

    Can Scooter ever be cool? I figured I would at least upgrade his scooter to a badass bike but the bot mode was just too cool to be Scooter.
