    This version of Detritus is based more on the ehobby G1 toy, pretty much a straight repaint of Hound. On my toy shelf, I've made the G1 toy a Decepticon to help flesh out that faction, and for the Classics shelf, I've done the same....maybe the 'Cons manage to continually pay him the best, so thats who he sticks around with the most.

    Anyway, this one features a different goatee/beard based more on the G1 toy, and lacks all the Junkion spikes and shield. I've also cut down the brushguard into smaller bumper. I scratchbuilt a second axe for this one as well...he might not look like a Junkion so much, but he still fights like one! His gun is built from some old Gundam bits, and some styrene; it's loosely based on Fansproject's Hound gun.

    Colors are the same as the Junkion version, but I like the sand colored hubcaps better.

    Both of these look super sweet. Would love to have one to fill out the Junkion ranks once Wreck-Gar is released

    Those weapons are fantastic. The paint application is so smooth, too. Also, the asymmetrical application of the Decepticon symbol I really enjoy :)  Certainly, this is another great piece from you :thumb
