    This is a custom by Solrac333 that I won off of e-bay that I've just simply added some waterslide decals to. Included is a pic of the original work, which I thought was great already. The theme for coloration on him was one of gentle "subtlety" in keeping with his g1 colors, while adding a slight "sunburst" effect, which I loved. So building on this concept, I just added some "real-fire" waterslides and kept the subtle nature of the piece, while giving him his trademark flames. Enjoy....

    Hey! That is pretty cool, man. Before I clicked on it, I was like "That looks like my style." The decals look nice. Glad he went to a good home.

    Alright, cool man! yeah, it's a real subtle flame job, but cool in design. I just felt that if I went with the traditional gold or yellow flames that it would've screamed "too cartoony", and I like the look you gave him, making him more "realistic". Glad you approve, I was a little worried about that. Thanks for a great custom here, you rock!
