    Hey all I thought i would take an old favorite of mine and take him in a new direction. This is Beastwars Squeezeplay. I know this is not my best painting job ever, but man some of those small spaces suck. lol .Enjoy anyway, I know i did.

    Squeezeplay is not your typical Maximal, Infact when he came online he was a Predacon through and through. He used to love wrapping himself around unsuspecting Maximals and slowing squeezing them until their transforming cogs would bust. After they were damaged enough, Squeezeplay would bite down and suck out all the mech fluid in their bodies. And then something happened. Magmatron and Airblade were seen beating down Reflux for an experiment which had undesirable results. Squeezeplay Confronted the two and warned that Reflux was to valuable to be treated as a mere slave. Magmatron could not tolerate this challenge of his command and ordered the immediate execution of Reflux. Squeezeplay found this action to be unforgivable. Now he spends his nights hunting the Predacons. When he finishes his attack he delivers the remains and their weapons to Optimus Primal, hoping to advance the Maximal Cause.

    Weapons and Abilities,
    Not even Magmatron knows this, but Squeezeplay is actually completely blind. He uses heat sensors, and vibrations, plus a highly advanced friction monitor, to make out his surroundings.
    Squeezeplay is armed with one energo-blade, and fangs capable of biting through any alloy. In snake mode his tail is crushes his victims while electrocuting them at the same time.

    weakness
    Being blind can leave Squeezeplay vulnerable to attack from the sky, and because he works alone now, he must defend himself agains both Maximal and Predacon, at least for the time being.

    My goodness, it's only after a 2nd look that I realised its not just a repaint...You have fooled us all! I'm really loving the colour scheme and the 'nocturnal hunter' aesthetic.

    Yea, the story gave him a very attractive character...

    Lovely, folks!

    Rumble02, like Stu said, you made some really good color palette choices. It flows very well, so much in fact that I'll say that it's your best choice in palette yet. Excellent! :thumb 

    This (to me) is when you really achieve something that's fun. It's always nice to show someone a piece and have their eyes totally fooled that it "came that way". You've made me proud, bud :)

    THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL THE KIND WORDS. THIS PIECE WAS A BLAST TO MAKE. i WOULD LIKE TO PANEL LINE HIM AT SOME POINT, HAD TO PAINT THE SMALL DETAILS WITH A TOOTHPICK, DUE TO LACK OF SMALL FINE TIP BRUSHES. BUT IT WORKED OUT. FOUND OUT A TOOTHPICK IS ACTUALLY TOOL OF GREAT VALUE.

    This is awesome man. Like everyone else said, I really love your color choices. I never would have thought of those colors for a cobra, maybe a bat or another creature of the night, but not a cobra! It just looks so natural. Perfect choice. Really cool backstory too. I also want to echo dyingwill3rd's question: What of the heck is he made form? I can't figure out any piece. Anyway, great Job.

    That's a awesome custom. Not to mention a nice character bio.

    Very nice, at first i expected some homage to G1 Squeezeplay, but it turned out to be a completely unrelated yet AWESOME character.
    Really loving it.

    I'm really ignorant on Beasties, they're far from my cup of tea- but this looks really nice, bud.
