    This guy has been waiting for paint for well over a year now, finally got a chance to get him finished.

    He is a mix between acid storm and g1 sandstorm.

    This is pretty cool man. Having owned Sandstorm as i'm sure many of us have, I can appreciate how hard it is to articulate this sucker and make it functional, you have achieved just that.

    Mine (the one you inspired) unfortunately got destroyed in an accident but seeing this makes me want to start on him again.

    Awesome work

    Amazing work again here chlokai!!! Glad to see him complete. Triplechangers to me are the hardest to customize, and you did it with flying colors!

    How about a Broadside next?!

    thanks for the comments guys. I plan to do broadside before springer or blitzwing as I think hastak will prob do them at some point. The paints are mostly games workshop, some others from my local model shop called minature paints (they aint great quality compared with GW's)

    Rumble, get on it man, this guy has had all sorts of disaters, I had him painted ready to gloss and my son (4) tried to 'help' paint him while I was at work with a big brush and his school paints, it took a LONG time to get him cleaned up.

    This looks pretty coo, man. Very faithful to the G1 figure. The helicopter mode is impressive. :thumb

    Robot mode is cool, but I like the original vehicle modes of the figure much better.
