    Took a shot at battling him up. Gave him some new outer forearm panels and got rid of some of the other bulk parts as well. THUS, he is non-transformable but then again I wasn't too fond of his truck mode anyway.

    Eyes and yellow parts were given glow effects to add some contrast to his battle worn appearance. Headlights painted on with a slight glimmer effect as well.

    The open-mouth 'O' look does nothing for me, and the only pic I can see from the group seems... post-op altered. Not sure if it's the actual paint job or something that's been done in PS. Overall the weathering looks great though!

    None of my pictures are photoshopped ever as a presentation set. I only dimmed the brightness to flush out the background and that's it. The only ps pics I do are the Attached pic, which is filtered with a ps tool but that's just for the initial pic on the forum main page...

    Yeah, I don't see one picture that looks photo-shopped. Nice work!

    Looks great! The original head never bothered me. He looks old. Glad you called him "CLASSICS" and not "Chug". I hate "chug".

    That's not his fault its the stock head.

    Great job btw, I don't like the scratches but they're done well.I'd like the same paint job, but no scratches for my collection

    Awesome work! Shame he doesn't transform but, I never display in alt mode so, no big deal to me.

    Thanks Z!

    Kup did have a lot of war stories :) 

    Thanks guys!

    Me too man, thank you!

    Thanks, yeah I should do more clean customs :) 

    Thanks guys, wish I could've figured out a better alt mode mod that could've made him more G1 like.
