    This really works actually :thumb 

    Now, if only you could get the golden logo with the crown and the lions
    around the Autobot symbol.

    Any plans to deal with the green plastic btw ?

    You can get rid of the green plastic using a Tracks if you have one kicking about.

    Also,this is the wrong way round, the original had a red rear and roof, leaving a white hood, but I think this works really well.

    I agree. Not that it isn't nice work mind you.
    carcinogenic smoking tubes and toys don't mix.

    Great Job with the paint. It's nice and clean. Can hardly wait to see some marlboro decals on there. I really wish he had the headsculpt from Diaclone marlboro Lancer. He could've been a diffirent character. Preferably, a Decepticon. It would've been more badass. And fitting, seeing as how smoking kills. Infact, make that a quote for his character bio!

    I don't encourage anyone to smoke cigarettes, especially youths.
    This is the Non-Smoker edition. Probably shouldn't have had the cigs in the pics, but I couldn't resist.

    The 100% G1 accurate version will have Marlboro stickers, the 598 number, blue windows, blue wings, and Rubsign on the chest.
    Not sure what his name is, or allegiance. I think he's a con. But others say he's an autobot, and that they are ignorant and carefree to the nature of the paint.
    My bro' calls him "Marlboro Lancer" I think - Windpipe works. With the whole throat cancer thing, and that Tracheotomy Device. Track-e-o-tron? Tracheotron!
    I dunno'

    If someone was so inclined could put Medic or TARGET logos instead. Make the Chest Rotate and you got a Classic DotM Leadfoot.

    DIACLONE Wheeljack and Classic DotM Leadfoot.. Not really, but he's got the paunch for it, that's for sure. Especially with the Wrenches. Just add a silvered out Steeljaw with a silver Crocmaster leash.

    -Green Plastic- (The only plastic that has been dealt with is the leg tab)
    --Due to the (in my opinion) optically offensive orange on
    TFCC Runamuck, the Green has been left in the shoulders.

    Fantastic looking piece man! The simple change to the design really breathes new life into the toy, I'm impressed :)
