    i have been setting on these guys for far too long and had them almost done for about 3 months now. what delays me you ask the fact that i didnt have a set of heads. HOW SAD IS THAT!!!!!

    anywho its a cross between the rts tracks and wheeljack molds and this is one of the few customs i deam finished though it still needs some repo lables

    and you know what i learned in the process of this? white is a paint to get right

    anywho on to pics thanks for looking gang

    Excellent work, I love the monochrome look. I'm interested in buying a set of heads if you still make them.

    I'd like to see you go back and touch up the roof to Runamuck. Otherwise, these are just flat out awesome. The heads you've made for them are my favorite aspect of these. I also greatly enjoy the solid color look - it makes 'em look slick :)

    Hey thanks d-unit. You still bashing? I haven't seen much from ya in a while

    Thanks and pm'ed

    Gracias

    Ya white is a pain to get right and the pics really highlighted those areas gonna have to get some more white and fix it before I put logos on. Thanks allen and I had a set of white legs for him but decided I liked these better


    Hey thanks wheel jack, the rear mods seemed so simple I had to do them and I think it helps sell the versatility of this mold

    Thanks for checking them out guys

    Yeah, I'm digging these. Been planning on doing my own set based on the cartoon color scheme rather than the toy schemes the club figures used.

    I see that the Runabout head used Sideswipe's as a base, but for the life of me I can't figure out what you made Runamuck's out of.

    Regardless, they look great. They only thing missing, really, are the Decepticon logos.

    thanks i started on the heads as soon as the release of the tfcc exclusives were announced and when i saw the colors of them i started on the bodies

    i appreciate customs and such but for my personal customs i prefer a store bought look


    always good to hear customer testimonials!!!!!

    thank kind sir


    good eye kusanagi both heads were made using sideswipe as a base did runabout first but only the mouth guard and shapped the top of the head. made a mold of it and took the original and finished off runabout, then took the mold and cut the top off of it and scratchbuilt a new cap and added the details to make runamuck head

    and im getting ready to order me a sticker sheet of con and autobot symbols


    thanks guys

    They both look good. As has been mentioned, you need some other colors to break up the black and white.
