    Well, here's my Classics Fitor, as promised. It's almost done now. I just gotta paint the yellow on the shins and the visor black. And maybe add a couple more yellow details on a couple other spots to spice up the look a little. The wings are chrome with black trim, btw.

    I'm not sure what else to do on it. I'm pretty content with how it looks so I don't think I will do anything else other than what I mentioned already.

    Anyway, tell me what you think of it!

    EDIT: Now added a vehicle mode and finished bot mode pic.

    Pretty darn cool. The only thing I'd really say is that the head looks odd to me - far too tall, have you made the chisel tip simply by adding putty or something to the nose? I think it would have looked much better if you'd trimmed and filed the nose down to a chisel tip than building it up to one.

    Other than that, it looks pretty much as I'd like to do my own at some point.

    Course, that all depends on how the alt mode looks too. If the heads too short it'll throw the cockpit all outta whack.

    If it's too short, obviously. In my case, I'd just trim about 5mm, possibly even less, off the end of the nose and file it to the chisel edge.

    Yeah, at first I was just going to file down the head, but realized that was going to remove far too much material for my taste. The head would've ended up shorter than the air intakes to the sides and I didn't want it that short. Especially for vehicle mode. The way it is now, it ends up being about the same or a little shorter than Starscream's nose cone in vehicle mode. The head's actually just a little bit bigger than Ramjet's. It just looks bigger because the tip is so much wider.

    Anyway, once it's done I'll take pics of it with the rest of my custom Seeker and Coneheads, including my custom Thrust (whose wings I completely scratchbuilt, and you can kinda see in the background) and Dirge.

    You know, I blindly clicked the pic without reading anything--and went "What the hell did he do to the hea...FITOR!" :lol  Good that it's pretty obvious. :wink: 

    Very nice. I'd like to see the jet-mode pics when you're done.

    So sweet. Great work. I love the face and the remolded nosecone. Jet mode looks pretty good too. IF you have the original it would be nice to see them side by side in robot and jet modes

    Fitor looks awesome. Does Hasbro own the rights for the Gobots? Because they should make these and maybe give the Guardians and the Renegades some insignias so they go their respectful group.

    Thanks guys! I actually have a couple more Go-bots that I've made as well. I made my own Bugbite because I didn't want to buy a Botcon one. It's exactly like the official one, just more shiny. I've also made a Snoop out of Energon Storm Jet, Road Ranger based off the e-Hobby minibot from a Target exclusive Movie Armorhide, and a Slicks made out of Classics Mirage. It was originally a Crasher, but when I saw that they were making an official one, I decided to redo it into Slicks. I've also been considering making a Bad Boy out of Universe Powerglide.

    Anyway, thanks again for the comments, guys. I appreciate it!

    Or if you didn't want to scale up that far, you could always go for an Energon A-10. Or even Cyb Wing Sabre. Unless you actually like the Powerglide model that much - although it's already pretty much white, like the E-Hobby version; are you going with the Go-Bot green colourscheme for him?

    Good choice for Snoop, and Road Ranger, especially given that that mould has already been redecoed into Huffer, who he shared moulds with last time he became a Transformer.

    Definitely props for Slicks, too. If I had the spare cash to make up a slew of Go-Bots, frankly I'd use Mirage for Slicks, and probably convert Crasher from Cyb Override or something.
