    First off,i know it is a shitty paint job(this is my first full TF repaint)and the pics arn't the best.This toy was a nightmare to do.I removed every pin and screw off of this god forsaken toy and the paint rub on him was crazy.From the first time i saw Skyhammer,he was Vortex.I have no interest in the DOTM NOT-Vortex,so i made my own.The main reason the paint looks so bad,is i play with my toys.The only thing i have left to do is find a head for him,add 2 more missle pods and add a mini gun to the nose of the helicopter and a con symbol or 2.

    Looking good I love the shade of gray you used. Did you use a clear coat to protect him? Which areas have the paint rub issue?

    No clear coat.I was scared with the layer of Primer and the grey gave me enough rub problems,i thought the clear coat would make it worse. This whole toy is a rub issue nightmare.I'm just glad to be done with him.I never want to remove another pin.

    If you want some advice, I'd reverse the orientation of the hands,
    reverse the head, turn the waist backwards, arrange the back kibble
    into a chest plate, and leave the propellers untransformed. It will match
    vortex better.
