    created from a energon powerlinks hoshot.(silver repaint) out of the three headmasters i recently did,this one recieved the most love. his from end has a front bodykit piece grafted to it from a "x-mods" acura rsx kit.the bumper itself has been split in half horizontally,then flipped upside down and fused to his front end.the gapping was filled with green putty,then sanded and molded in.his shiny new wheels are salvaged from a ginormous hotwheels "haulers" front semi cab.his new twin exhausts and tips are taken fron a 1/24 scale toyota supra model kit.the spoiler is taken from a mercedes sl500 metal model,just really altered and cut/sanded to fit.muzzle is created from a armada minicon called ramjet that came with tidalwave.(thanks nocturn).the face is cut from a roadbot,with a few small bits added to help him look more g1-ish.hotshots stock rifle was just repainted,no bits added here.again,all paints used are a combination of automotive enamels and tamiya acrylics,all coated in krylon clear,then panel lined.alot of the stock red was left in there to help differentiate him from the actual tfcc nightbeat,which has black accents where i have red.the decals like the flames and tech specs meter are all hand cut from avery vinyls,and the hardest part was making the flames match each other.in vehicle mode,muzzle attaches under the hood with the same magnet used for bot mode.

    Ramjet from armada tidal wave I believe. Great idea since he just folds and has a jet on his back

    I second his opinion. I like Nightbeat, but with him being this mold I had no intentions to get him. Yet here you go and turn it into a REAL Nightbeat Headmaster. Well done. The only thing that might improve this would be two antennae that doubled as fender-guns in car mode.

    awesome take on the character. you really captured him well here. a little more added articulation would have been the bees knees.
