    Still waiting on the MaidenJapan junkion parts to finish my Junkion combiner. Not doing commissions anymore sure hasn't worked out so far due to this... So I took a couple of new commissions from a repeat customer who got the other Ark Crew Classics members from me.
    This is Tailgate from a modded movie Stockade head on classics Hotshot body with the spoiler parts removed and a new paint job.

    Last 2 pictures were my primary references.

    Nice work! I think that mold looks much better in white than yellow & that head works great on this. As with your other customs, excellent paint apps & I dig your ideas & choices.

    that works really well. For some reason, I can never see that mold as Windcharger, but it definitely works as Tailgate. Well done, sir.

    I agree with this, which is strange since originally both characters were the same car, so why would the same car now work better for one than the other? I don't know, but it does. Tailgate's now ready to champion the rights of innocent vehicles and kitchen appliances everywhere.

    I absolutely hated this mold when it came out. Apperently it was just the colors I hated, cause this is baddass.

    Hopefully this isn't bad form (resurrecting a post like this), but I just wanted to bump this to bring it back into the spotlight, as I think this is one of the coolest "CHUG"-style customs I've seen. I'll admit, I'm biased, as I'm the client who commissioned this. Unfortunately I am having to sell it now to make ends meet. This figure is awesome though, and I just think Unicron9 deserves a little bit more recognition for it. Here's some more photos of this badass bot, with a Renderform gun to boot. Thanks again to Unicron9 for making this.

    Good luck man. I can't speak for all customizers but business in December for me has always been rough. I have 2 customs on Ebay at a low price for the extent of the work, both well received by people online, and they have just been sitting there with tons of watchers.
    You'd probably have better luck after Christmas.
    Only reason I have anything up now is because the kids expect a Christmas to happen. Crazy little boogers.
