    Here is another Gobot upgrade. Cop-tur! I used Universe Blades and repainted him in Cop-Tur's colors.

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    (I was going to do him next)

    But seriously, the alt modes are pretty dead on, although I'd paint the windows orange to make them match the original's even more.

    This looks great. Satomiblood needs a hug now, though. Perhaps Cop-Tur could fly a Valentine over to him? That'd be nice :)

    True. That's when I wish I could kitbash.

    it's easier than you think. :)  first, you can look for other heads that are the same size to see if there's an existing one that already looks like him, if you don't find one, then you can look at tweaking the head on there. you could use apoxie sculpt to add to it, the stuff has a work time of 1-3 hours, so you have PLENTY of time to fix any goofs, and it won't be fully cured for 24 hrs either, but once it is, it's solid as a rock so you won't have to fear messing it up afterwards. you can even sand or drill or trim or anything to it. can dye it or paint it, even if it's not cured.

    Well, you could do that too. Give Jacko a run for his money!

    Or maybe you should stick to painting. I'm sorry. I tried :)

    I'll stick with painting for now. I have some ideas for future kitbashing but I need to get the tools first and for that I need $$$. Paints are easier to buy right now.

    Universe Powerglide head perhaps?

    I plan on doing this, but in a deluxe class.

    I think the conehead shape would be too big. The top part would stick out. If someone could do it and make it look cool, I want to see it. Besides, I kind of like the Blades head in blue. It makes him look mean some how.
