    I have to admit that this idea didn't work out as well as planned. This was the first face sculpt for me and I kept it pretty easy with a faceshield and ears on the exsisting head. Walmart ex Breakaway was the base of this with the blue cleaned off, green added and reprolabels to give it a G1 feel.

    enjoy,
    TT

    I applaud your effort sir! This mold works surprisingly well as wheeljack, quite innovative.
    the head sculpt is not to bad considering it is your first and i am sure in time you will be able to do even better.
    i may just have to steal this idea from you.
    great job!

    Yeah, I don't know what you're talking about. Looks great to me! Like red00wolf said, with a little practice you'll get sculpting down to a tee, and even this first try looks really good to me. And I wouldn't have thought of that mold for wheeljack but it works really well. Great job!

    First, great props for originality. I have never seen a Wheeljack custom for this mold, but it looks great.

    The head does need some work. I am surpirised you didint try to invert the chest to the back to give him a G1 feel, but you should pat yourself on the back for this one. :thumb

    Like many others have said, that mold works surprisingly well for Wheeljack. Kudos for seeing that! I just may have to try that out myself. :)

    Nice use of the mold. Hope you add a shoulder missle sometime in the near future. I'm a sucker for those.
