    well, even tho in my last post, the polls said Armada Overload's head would look best on the HULK body. i still couldnt help but use the Swindle head to make Turmoil.

    the mods i did are:
    - replaced neck ball join with one from Universe Dinobot
    - put swindles head on
    - took faceplate from Armada Leader Prime
    - cut up Armada Megatrons Cannon
    - i used Universe Dinobots knee join and a middle to make the joint that connect the cannon to the arm
    - Sanded the toes so they are now solid

    and i was originally trying to put shoulder cannon, but it looked like too much and was a paint to figure a place for them in tank mode

    well here he is:

    next what im gonna do is the paint.
    - spray him all black for a base
    - paint on dark dark grey for the majority of his body
    - certain parts a lighter grey
    - and im also gonna do details in a sort of light blue like he is in the comics.
    - and im gonna paint the visor orange


    tell me what you think

    Turmoil looks pretty sweet.

    Can't wait for the end result in colour.

    D'oh, the Armada Overload head still looks better IMO...despite the nice scultping work you did with Swindle's head, which would make for a sweet Alternator Dead End.

    You've got a Voyager Mixmaster in your trades list.

    You may want to yank his Triple-Changer mode Cannon. If you cn grab a couple of super magnets from Walmart, you may be able to rig up something there. Either way, your off to a great start. He looks good. Nice job with the head bod/ball joint as well. :thumb

    im looking for more of a single barrel gun tho like in the comic pics. something like a huge cannon

    yeah i do like the way it looks also.
    maybe someday if i get my hands on another hulk body, i can make a classic overload out of it. i was thinking about doin that before but i wanted a decepticon right now

    javaco, Turmoil is coming out nicely the Swindle head fits him to a tee and the cannon is a cool touch. I agree with ax23 on the cannon, but you did have your reasons and thats cool. Keep us posted on this badass custom.

    Nice, simple custom job here, and it looks good. New head + arm cannon = success.

    Man this is really shaping up to be a damn good custom. Can't to see this finished. And I would say if you find one def go with a bigger cannon.

    Okay I really dont know if this will work but I really liked Turmoil. What about cutting Hulk off at the fist and putting in magnets. You need a bigger barrel then action figure size. Try to find a nerf or water gun for cheap that will work. Chop of the tip of the barrel of the gun and 'magnet' it to Hulks wrist after detaching the hand. With his huge arm it might still look like his whole arm is the gun instead of just a Gun hand.

    If not the water gun Megatrons cannon end might work too.

    javaco, I just realized if you didn't bring out his toes you would have a blocky feet without sanding his toes, but still it was just a thought.
