    Well a while back, there was a plethora of Jazz customs (mine is on the way too, heh) from the Universe 2.0 Prowl mould. Being as I likes me some obscure characters, I decided to go a different route and make me a Stepper :D 

    Basic mould was Prowl, but swapped his legs around so he looked a bit more like Jazz / Stepper's G1 legs. Head is from the Botcon 08 Jazz. Paints used were Citadel colours - Chaos Black, Skull White, Burnished Gold, Mithril Silver, Enchanted Blue and a mixture of some of the above :D  The Reprolabels were the G1 Stepper ones cut to size.

    I've used Nightstick from Cyclonus as his Targetmaster - I plan to get a second one to repaint but have used him unpainted here just for photos :D 

    As usual, constructive C&C is always appreciated!

    I'm just astounded that you would actually use a Botcon exclusive head for a custom.

    Cheers gents :)  :thumb 

    Yes, yes it does. I now have 100% market ownership on Stepper customs :lol  Go for it dude! I'd love to see what you came up with :D 

    Johndillinga answered for me ;)  But I don't see why I shouldn't use a Botcon head for a custom IF I had the cash. Which, for the record, I don't :lol

    Any suggestions how? It's difficult to get styrene here in the UK, plus no idea how to even attach it so it transforms...

    Dangit I had afeeling you'd do yours before I got to mine. Good job though. I'm not sure about the gold on the side of the head vents but over all really nice. The alternate leg thing is pretty cool. The Target master fitting in the holes left from the light removal is a nice bonus.

    I'll probably paint on the flames if I do them at all. I might just make the hood gold. Still undecided

    Soon as I can get a Sculptbot head, I'll be pretty well ready to post my tutorial on exactly how... and it's not hard! :)
