    So, other than my Headmaster version, I also have this Hardhead I finished for a customer across the pond.

    [​IMG]

    I'm working with a TON of green paint, so it was easy to knock this out before my Devy's unveliing. The commissioner requested a military style to him, so I went with shades of Camo and Kelly green, with metallics silvers and metals with some Bleached Bone and Skull white for additional weathering.

    [​IMG]

    I think the coolest parts is his over the chain gun (MASSIVE!, Thanks to my boy Lion for the hook up.) It has a ammo can almost as big as Hardhead himself. It doesn't mount in his alt mode, but it looks hella intimidating when he is a bot.

    His head is from a Alt Swindle (Thanks Plowking! You always come through!)His 2 automatic cannons attach magnetically to the turret. They came from a KO Optimal Optimus, and I modded the tips with the gun/exhasut emplacements on the sidecar of the ROTF Arcee fig. The turret itself is made up of the top of an RID Grimlock fig (busted one while making Devy, used it for this) and has the tank barrel from a Universe 1.0 Tankor (the Beast Machines repaint)

    Thanks for looking, and enjoy!

    Did that ammo can come from a Metal Gear Solid Vulcan Raven figure? I don't recall if they ever made one, but that looks like where you'd find it...

    Anyway, this custom looks great! And I have to say that the quality of your pictures has improved dramatically. I can now really appreciate all the detail work you've put in here. The clarity in your photos is wonderful.

    Awesome job, ABX!

    You guessed it!!! Yep, my boy Lion (TFW member, next door neighbor and all around pimp) found it for me and hooked me up! (We throw toys on each other balconies if we ain't home...yes, a nerd network :thumb )

    If I would have had it earlier in the process, I would have worked out a way for it to attach in both modes, but I think the customer will mainly have this in bot mode, so no worries.

    Thanks for the props on my pics. I get frustrated when all my customers say "It looks so much better that it does in the pics!" :lol  It's been one of my biggest areas of struggle.

    Wow I didn't really even have to look at this to know it was gonna be badass! Still I'm glad I did. The extra guns are a nice touch as always. Never too much firepower. Never. Awesome job as always!

    autobotx23, I absolutely LOVE your customizing skills, and your amazing sense of imagination when making your customs. I love Hardhead's new head! Swindle's head fits perfectly on this custom. I love the tremendously excessive amount of artillery going on here too!

    Beautiful custom, and amazing work!

    Like the joker said "Where do you get such wonderful toys" or something along that line. :lol 

    The sheer amount of armaments on this is ridiculous. I love it. The painting and shade of green really make the detailing pop. And I believe the chain gun attaches to the place where the fore arm gun was right? Or am I seeing that wrong?

    I love this thing. :rock
