    So, it's finally done. I've worked on this project on and off for a few weeks, and am really proud of the outcome. I kind of went crazy with some of the tiny details and paint gradations, and unfortunately some of them didn't come out well in the photos. Up close is a different story, but the pictures don't convey everything done to this figure.

    What I've learned from this project is that the patience I used to put into miniatures goes double for Transformers. Mainly because you're dealing with movable parts rather than stagnant statues.
    And that I desperately need a new camera. Learned that, too.

    I rarely do specifically 'for sale' items, but since I have a Nemesis version coming soon, I can part with this one pretty easily. I plan on having Big Convoy on the 'Bay by the end of the day.

    Comments are welcome, because I'm going to be doing Leo Convoy next and want it to be successful, too.

    He came out beautifully!

    I'm definitely going to bid! I've got Big-Convoy's coming out my ying-yang already, but yours is really too beautiful!

    That looks badass!!!!!! And I'm not a fan of beast stuff. This and the Lio Prime Spurt Reynolds did would look awesome together.

    I really like how it turned out. Gives him a more cartoon accurate coloring. Excellent work!

    Excellent cartoon like finish. Fantastic, would love to see Lio Convoy done like that as well :) 

    Good luck with the auction, and hope you'll win Nightwind, so that we can see more pics of this guy ;)  You've been doing great photoshoots.

    It'll be hard to follow Spurt's excellent Lio Convoy, but it'll be different since the one I'm doing is the Neo version. Lots more details to bring out than the Breaker mold. Not as many as Big Convoy here, but still lots there to work with.

    Well I'm the current high bidder but not currently meeting your reserve :/

    Actually I'm NOT surprised, but I threw what I could afford at it. If by some miracle you don't get your reserve met, hopefully we can work something out

    If only I didn't have a dozen commissions under way at the moment....

    look's pretty realistic in beast mode and cartoon accurate in bot,
    nice at all, but one thing disturb me...the beast mode eyes...they look like...evil in some ways, doesnt big convoy have black iris on white back in beast mode?

    I've been watching this project since you started posting WIP pics and this is amazing! I love everything about it - the subtle highlights on the thighs, the very clean panel lining on the white parts, and the beast mode fur especially.

    Amazing job! If I didn't live in the Philippines (and didn't have to go through all the customs red tape), I'd bid on it. Good luck with the auction!

    He doesn't. :)  The eyes are green AFAIK

    The eyes are supposed to be green? Oops. I actually made them all black with multi-level highlights and a brown wash. I was going to go for the white with black, but decided to make it more 'deep'.
    I guess if the winner wants them green I could chance them rather easily.

    Wow looks fantastic!! Great details. I'm watching this auction too, though I'm sad to say I won't bid on it either. I envy the project itself, but there's something about Mammoth Convoy that just doesn't do it for me. Great job and good luck in your auction!!
