    Update 8/24/11

    A big "thank you" to board member "AutobotBee" for providing me a WFC Cliffjumper head to finish up my Cliff project. Here's Cliff all done and ready to join my classics shelf. I actually love this custom more than my Hasbro Cliff. I took these pics late last night, paint was almost dry, which is why there's no Autobot logo yet. Also gave it another coat of red as I changed my mind on the whole battle damage on the red body as seen on the before pics, I think the cleaner look is much better for a Classics character. Here are some pics of the finished product. Used Testors Glossy Red with Testors Steel with Black for the body. More pics to come soon.

    New Pics!

    I think you did a nice job with the black and gray parts. It makes for good weathering. As for the red, I think if you go over it once more, it'll look better. Or were you also trying to achieve a weathered look with the red? The best part about weathering and battle damaged detailing on a Transformer is that you have a much greater margin of error. You can ostensibly pass off paint rub and missed spots as robot wear and tear. For this, a flat red finish would've been more appropriate. Have you sealed this yet? If not, you can get a matte paint sealer. That'll dull some of the gloss in the red you used.

    p.s. If you need a spare WFC Cliffjumper, BBTS has them on clearance. Also, he pegwarms quite a bit at TRU and Walmart.

    Not bad, but I did like the pistols you gave him before. These new ones are from DOTM Sideswipe, correct?

    I almost want to buy Sideswipe just for the gun, but that'd leave me with a naked Sideswipe to sell.

    Any chance you can provide a pic of CJ holding one of each gun?
