    Thanks again everyone. Glad you like it.

    I do have a staff for him, but I decided to use it for something else. The head from a Retaliation Cobra Commander, just sliced in half.

    Thanks. There are flaws, but hopefully not much worse than factory paint. It's Testor's Model Master acrylic. It's very forgiving paint. The blue itself is a custom mix of Cobalt Blue, Ford GM Engine Blue, Neutral Gray.

    Fantastic!!

    Could work for a sequel to Only Human where Old Snake starts up Cobra again. They capture a Sweep and use it similarly to what happened IDW Sunstreaker as a blueprint for a drone army.

    You need to make a few of these and get Collector's Club Serpent.O.R.

    Again fantastic work.

    I would so buy this as a toyline. I had actually wanted to do Hardhead as an Iron Grenadier tank and TM Brawn as Destro. I wish I had the drive and skill to execute ideas that you clearly do.

    Thanks all. I made a slight change to the vehicle mode paint, alluding to a snake head (depending on how hard you want to see it!)

    Now I need a legends size B.A.T. head...any ideas?

    Somebody had to do it.

    On topic, this is a fantastic custom! I'm a big GI Joe fan so any time I see TF and GI Joe crossovers of any sort, I smile.

    That's a great use of the Retaliation CC head!
