    Did this for fun hope you all enjoy.

    Cosmic Rust Oilslick.
    Bio
    Oilslick has always gambled with dangerous chemicals and weapons. He never thought it would catch up to him. During a battle with Jetfire and Jetstorm he attempted to contaminate both bots and rid the universe of flying Autobots. His plan went horribly wrong when the twins shot the canister in Oilslick's hand. The blast smashed Oilslick's protective helmet and he was not only covered but also ingested the Cosmic Rust. The twins left feeling certain that Oilslick was finished and they wanted to be as far away from contamination as possible. But something Happened. Rather than destroying Oilslick, the chemicals merged with his body. He became stronger and more deranged than ever. Oilslick believes his constant exposure to hazard waste and his own chemical weapons allowed his body to absorb the rust without perishing. Now Oilslick is one tough customer who can ooze the rust at will and use it against other machines. No bot in their right mind would ever attempt to fight him at close range due to the extreme danger of contamination. Oilslick doesnt mind it a bit.

    nice - i like the concept and the bio. Why not add real rust? There's a video on youtube that explains how. The gist goes as follows:

    1.) paint areas in iron paint
    2.) soak with a rusting agent
    3.) wrap in plastic wrap for variations in the rust
    4.) remove wrap and yer done.

    I'm digging it R02.
    I get a very Junkion vibe from alt mode.
    How well did the silver paint dry on that soft plastic of the ram horns ???
