    Pretty much the same as my Wheeljack custom, but with a new head and paintjob. The head is again made from styrene, and the decals are again custom made.
    I've yet to add an Autobot or Decepticon logo to the chest as I'm going to leave that up to the auction winner to decide which. There's also an optional "DIACLONE" tag for the license plate.

    Oh, and of cousre comparisons with Wheeljack:

    Sweet! I love this... I mean, I don't have any particular Diaclone nostalgia for this guy, but it just looks great. That strong orange is somehow really appealing, and the custom work is exquisite.

    quite lovely. He does seem a tad red in 'bot mode, but he's delicious.

    Great job on this guy I like the head a lot. The eye visor reminds me of Snake Eyes sort of. The blue is a nice touch too

    Thanks! For me, it was the head. I always thought the Diaclone version had such a cool, unique, and slightly evil look to it. One day I wondered what it would look like on this body, and by the end of the day, the head was finished, then work on the body started.

    Nice. I'm not sure the Marlboro and Lancia logos are 100% spot on, but very nice nonetheless.
