    nothing huge, just a little more details/wear on the alt mode, and some blackwash to his face. i think it really improves the face though!
    used testors paint pen silver, then flat black/thinner brushed on to bring out the lines/details in his face, and also used the brush with the black to color his horn bases, and kinda moanaged to get the rough shape of the autobot logo on his forehead.
    also added some silver to his arms, and gold to a few joints (screw locations in legs).
    corrected the color of his crotch/differential case to black.

    i'll post the alt mode pics later, cam memory is full.

    yep! as soon as i saw him out in town, i nabbed him! :rock 
    just looked at a few other BB TF:TM improvements here.
    some nice work! i like the idea of drilling out his eyes a bit. these things remind me of robin from the howard stern show when she pops her eyes out... *creepy*
    oh, and i REALLLLY need to paint his shins yellow!

    alt mode pics still pending... just gotta snap a few quick shots...

    i also noticed is helps to put a coat of flat black on his tires so they arent so glossy.
    thanks for looking!
