    I did this one a while back and since I just posted mt Classics Megatron I might as well post him. I also painted a Classics Roller.

    he looks great, man. I've a question, though. Why'd you make the upper arm part red from it's accurate grey color, instead of silver? Or were you going for Cartoon accuracy instead of toy? Clocker makes an interesting Roller.

    What accurate gray color? I was going G1. He goes well with my Megatron I did.

    the G1 toy's silver stripe makes that part of the arm silver, that's what I'm referring to.

    Ahhh. I see what you mean. I guess I was going for Toon. That's how I remember it. I figured that with the design of the classics version the silver line on the panel would take it's place.

    I think using the Clocker mold for Roller is a good idea! I also like some of the details you picked up on Classics Prime (such as the side vents in alt mode you painted silver). You also gave Classics Prime an overall nice homaged treatment. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work :thumb

    Looks good overall. I think for just that much more geewun goodness, you need to pick up a oversize RM Convoy KO for this gun-

    I'll be painting mine black in a little bit. I just shaved down the handle to fit the other night.

    Thanks! I really didn't care where I put the rub sign. I just placed it there because that's where his Autobot symbol usually is. I can easily take it off with out damaging the paint. Where would you put it?

    Going Geewun again, a rubsign would have to be on the back of his head or on the wind vane (which I know there isn't a way to center it).

    Once I get some, I'm planning on using a decal to put the insignia on his shoulder.
