    This looks really nice. The head looks good too, but it seems a little tiny bit big. Honestly, if I were going to do anything differently, I'd have simply attached that spoiler piece with a screw so you could swivel it around to face the opposite direction in vehicle mode. :)

    Spoiler looks a bit odd in vehicle mode, Redline's suggestion has merit, but in the end of the day its what makes you happy.
    Can't fault the bot mode though. It looks more like Rodimus Prime than the original resembled OP

    Nice work

    The choice of using this mold for Rodimus REALLY works. The paint looks a little too thick from what I can see but the color scheme is really good and the detail work is good.

    yeah i was kinda pissed with the paint, i have never painted gloss paint like this, most of my stuff is pretty matte but I want a shiny red sports car look so I kinda fucked it up so yeah...thanks though

    With the direction and angle of the "spoiler" it looks like a bull and horns. Makes the alt mode look beastly tough. I hate the character, but this custom is good stuff.

    I think it would've worked well with a matte finish as well because it's a Cybertronian spaceship-ish alt mode. :)

    I really like this piece, nice use of the mold, better than the Titanium Rodimus. I agree w/ Redline's first response, get that spoiler to swivel and its perfect...great job!

    I agree with what everyone has said thus far. I quoted both REDLINE and mampy, as those comments seem to be the crux of everyone's sentiments. I really hope you can use each of the comments to continue pushing your work and honing your skills. I also agree that this mold is well-suited for this project; it just needs some tweaking :) 

    Keep up the good work :thumb

    This is awesome. Can't believe I didn't comment on it earlier.
