    Hey

    This is the second one I'm uploading today, he is my classics/universe take on the predator Stalker. I had the original as a kid, and lacking any other larger decepticon figures, he was usually designated their leader.
    Anyway, here he is, pretty much all done (just realised he doesn't have a faction symbol yet so I gotta work out where to put that, and MAYBE try to grubby him up a bit). I did have more pics but my xD card is a bit corrupt and needs replacing.

    Comments/Critisisms?

    Regards

    JL

    looks good. The only nitpic is that the green should be more turquoise.

    I know your gonna paint the cannon, but I would paint the rims and maybe the wheels could be a lil' dirty. I LOVE the green, very smooth. :thumb

    how many times has that old mold been repainted? I thought it'd only been used twice.

    I agree, but those Euro TF colours are a serious pain in the arse. I've had a go at Thunderclash, Actionmaster Thundercracker, Fearswoop and had a long look at Slicer and some of the elite actionmasters and all of them are insanely hard to colour match.

    The new head really makes all the difference. Seems to me this mould only works when you add a new head. Stalker and BW Megatron both work, but Countdown using the regular head doesnt quite work.

    very nice job.

    Yeah it doesn't match the original in that manner, but I thought the green was slightly more real than turquoise, especially since I was originally gonna put some clear smokey paint over the top.

    Would you believe it once belonged to alt Tracks? just added a faceplate (couldn't manage a visor, but a Soundwave head may have done the trick too)

    Im a bit afraid of tackling the cannon, I have started to develope a phobia of white paint. I hate the stuff its a pain in the arse. Im actually thinking that any more white characters I want done I will get commissioned instead of tackling them myself, never quite happy with the results I get with white

    He was actually half done before I even knew about that botcon set, not that Im ever going to get to a Botcon living in Australia

    Thanks for the feedback

    Really cool! I always loved my 'Stalker' though mine is from France and is called Buzzard. (I still have the box to prove it)

    Great repaint! I just got the Galaxy force version (only 25$) and I'm still undecided on whether I want to repaint him to Stalker or Doubledealer. His head would work better for the latter.
