    That was quick. He's finished. Flew through this project as I enjoyed it so much! This is my 12th custom I think, and without a doubt my favourite as it was such an outlandish idea but somehow I think it works.[​IMG]

    So the idea was originally "what could you put on the front of a jeep that isn't a grill?", I went through a few options in my head including a lego-esque winch and then my subconscious jumped to the WWE and LBJ's silly car with steer horns. I immediately though, steerhorns are cool! And scoured the entire internet trying to find toy steerhorns of a similar scale, to no avail. I was mega excited and the idea grew into the cowboy hat, and then pistols (too much Deadwood) and I finally settled on the Detritus coour scheme because of the whole desert / cowboy link.[​IMG]
    Then nothing happened as I couldn't find steerhorns.

    Enter Calloway Customs once more: custom hat, pistols, holsters and grill with steerhorns. I think he turned out real pretty y'all!

    Note how the pistols and holsters remain in vehicle mode for storage, and the hat just about fits in between where Ravage used to.

    Seriously, I love this figure!

    A) Great work, guys! :thumb 
    B) That Hound/Spike pic never ceases to make me chuckle. :lol 
    C) FL, was that a deliberate rimshot, or just pure coincidence? :p

    I like the look of the custom so far, but I'm not a fan of the name. Also it's not SG Hound - SG Hound is a canonized character (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Hound_(SG)) - I just happened to be the first dude here to make a Hound figure into his evil self.

    Anyways, back to your custom. Can we see some alt-mode pics?

    One question... where's Tracks?

    On a serious note, this is hilarious.

    Although your SG Hound is awesome and I did nearly go that route myself, I don't consider SG canon anyways, even though I'm a big fan of the concept, for a start I only use Classics / Universe molds for my version of the SG universe - no Energon repaints for me.
    For instance I use Hasbro Classic Megatron as SG Megs. Most of my SG repaints have been based on either G2 colours (Sideswipe)or original Diaclone colours (red Mirage), and in the case of Hound there is neither so I used the e-hobby release of Detritus as my inspiration.
    Bit more painting and assembly required and then full pictures and alt mode will go up.

    The colors look great; they really work well with that mold. Do you plan to add any stickers to him? Aside from a faction badge, I think he'd really benefit from some flat black lettering on a few panels.
