    Hey there. This is phase-2 of my Shattered Glass Big Convoy. I found a second Energon Starscream rifle so I was able to finally proceed. I removed the stock exhaust pipes from either side of the cab and then proceeded to widen the bottom peg hole to fit the new rifles. The guns fit perfectly, and if you ask me the stock of the rifles looks almost as if they were intended to overhang his running boards.:thumb 

    The next step I'm taking with this feller is to add a giant sleeper cab that doubles as vehicle munitions and transforms battle-station. The sleeper is going to be a heavily modified Pyro/Spark tail section from an '07 Movie Prime recolor I got from kotoys.com a while back.

    I went outside and took some pictures since it was a nice day. Pardon my background; I live in the hood (Trenton, NJ) and it is what it is. Some shots came out exceptionally clear; the others not so much. Enjoy some bonus shots of Shattered Glass Slickspin (Big Convoy's second in command of his 5-man squad) alongside Shattered Glass Cliffjumper. You know, the lil blue guy who I thought was SG Bumblebee but it turns out I was wrong?:dunce 

    Comment and criticism is always welcomed! The rifles were primed with rustoleum grey rattle-can, hand-brushed with flat black acrylic, dry brushed with silver acrylic, and then black-wash cleared with future finish & flat black acrylic.

    Note: Slickspin uses whichever weapon Big isn't wielding at the time. While Slickspin is adapt with most weaponry, he relies on what others aren't using due to his lack of personal armaments.
    Note 2: If you don't like bios, the truth is I don't have anything fitting for Slickspin to wield, so yeah - make due with what ya got, ya know?:D

    Vehicle Mode. The 'exhaust' may look a little extreme right now, but it scales nicely with the sleeper I've lined up for him.

    those stacks are fuckin sweet pardon my foul language but just look at how epic that is!
    could you upload a vehicle mode photo, with a white background (paper) so I could easily cut it out and make a background?

    Dude, your neighborhood makes the pics look real! It actually works for the customs!

    I LOVE THAT PRIME!!!!!! Great use of washes to dirty him up, and I love the use of ol' Energon Starscream's weapons. Epic-Super-Fun-WIN!!! He looks like the "Hood Prime"! :lol

    I'm gettin there, don't worry. That's definitely on the drawing board!

    Thank you much.

    Worry not - I curse all the damn time; except when in public and there's lil kids around. Gotta be decent for the kids. Background, eh? Hmm...I suppose so, sure. What angle of the truck did you want? Make sure to send me a copy, too.

    To save a few dollars get the one from kotoys - I don't remember the price, but Big Convoy here used to be a $90 Transformers 2000 Black Convoy from Japan.

    "Ghetto Convoy" lives, eh? Heh - thank you much. The neighborhood is about as nice as a 'hood' can get. I can't complain though; the people are nicer than the suburb I used to live in and my house is effin huge.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Be easy!
