    Stalker is notorious to both Autobot and Decepticons alike due to his mastery of torture techniques, there are reports stating that Vortex learnt everything he knows from studying under this highly focussed psychopath. His arms are the colour of mechfluid becomes even more creepy when realised that it is not paint but the real deal! His hammer and claw are plated with pure Nucleon and are capable of crippling and mutilating any subject that comes into contact with them.

    Been working on this one for a while as a commission for Locustreign and boy has he been a pain, even after filing some of the rub points just won't stop on the paint :(  at least these spots are minor and he looks good enough for me to be proud of the work I did on him, he is painted in games workshop paints with his hammer deliberately left semi painted as a hint that it is the main weapon used to render his prey unconscious. I would like to do another one of these but only if I could figure out exactly how much I have to wear down some points to prevent paint from rubbing. Love the weapon exchanging on him but really do hate the missile.

    Hope you're happy with him, if there's any changes to make to him then now is the time to let me know :)

    I really like it. Buzzard (as he is named in europe) was one of my childhood toys. Still have the box and everything.

    The new Stalker could use a headswap and tank threads! Otherwise very nice and clean custom.

    Hey Storm, give my idea back to me! lol

    Hahaha, this is a natural logical selection to update one of the most iconic LSOTW pricks ever.
    I'll be doing my take on him too if that's ok man, I'm just having dificults to find this mould here.

    Good work all round , very close rendition and detailings and dude he really does stand very cool with the giant mounted missile.

    Very cool. I did this as a digibash once and it's nice to see it done for real!

    :lol  I've had the idea for ages but Locustreign was the one who sent me the Countdown to use with the parts attached, I merely did the painting.

    I look forward to seeing some pictures of your interpretation, be wary of the rub points though, it shocked me how many there actually are on this guy.

    Just saw this, very nice job. Shame about the rub spots, but you can't avoid that on some molds.

    Colours are excellent.
