EDIT: Latest Update Apologies in advance for the terrible pics... my phone doesn't deal well with anything but natural light. Last year or the year before, when the DotM toys were fresh on the shelves, Roadbuster caught my eye. Between his car mode and his fairly "neutral" robot mode, I didn't think he'd look jarringly out of place with a new coat of paint and a new head with my "Classics" toys, it was just a matter of whom to do him up as. Eventually, I decided to go for Jackpot, since I have fond memories of the Actionmaster (which I foolishly traded on ATT:M in my youth). Absolutely stupendous amounts of "real life" drama over the last year or two have meant that it's only now I've been able to pick him up and look at him again to start work. His new head was made from one of the RiD trainbots (who I have two of spare for some reason. No clue why) with a sculpted visor, shaved-down chin, and a newly-added socket to fit the neck ball from Roadbuster. The idea was to dye all the appropriate parts (including the entire car exterior) black, so as to avoid paint wear when transforming him, since he's a bit of a Movie Shellformer. Everything was going okay until... Basically, I'm not very good at dying parts. They tend to either end up not deeply enough coloured, or... melty. Originally he was the first extreme, so I decided to try and dye his parts again the next day, only to end up with the latter. One hasty order on ebay later (incidentally, Kapow! toys AKA toy_jedi gave nothing but excellent customer service when there was a problem with my purchase) and I had the following; The head and crotch thankfully never deformed, and I managed to save the dyed legs by forcing the warped parts back into shape using the various screw connections. The current plan is to paint only the outside of the vehicle mode black, so as to avoid paint chipping during transformation, and then add yellow highlights to certain areas. The original toy's mostly black and yellow, I admit, but there's orange as a spot colour, so I don't think a heavily black/orange colour scheme will look too unnatural. I'm not torn on whether or not I want to replace the original decals with something, but I am quite inclined to paint the current white trim areas in with yellow, to contrast the black. And after a request from someone on another forum, I'm probably going to recast the head, not least of all because I want another one to stick on Animated Prowl or some similar bike to make a Classics Rad. Oh, and you can bet your ass that there will be some kind of Minicon Targetmaster incarnation of Sights. Couldn't bring myself to mod my G1 one.
