    This is the final of the last 3 of my "brush" period. I now have been using an airbrush and this was the last of my handbrushed works.

    Crankcase here was a G1 Triggercon, I used ROTF Brawn with an E Stormjet head. to recreate him.

    That really suits him. That head makes him look a suitable figure, even with those long arms. Great job with the paint as well.

    thanks, I'm trying to be more patient. there are still spots I see that my OCD is going to drive me crazy on ( forehead hole, wheels) but I'll work those out later, since you can't see them on the figure, only in these extreme close-up pics.

    I'm currently obsessed with the 88 figures (triggerbot/cons) so I'm sure to have more coming.

    Chest, head, alt mode, and colors really work well for the character, and it's certainly more exciting overall than the Cyb Red Alert redeco Hasbro gave us. Another nice job :thumb

    I didn't even think about giving him actual headlights, I was a bit too into making him look like this to even deviate :/

    Then I think you've achieved your goal rather admirably (even though the blue's a bit pale :p ). :)

    I'd find it hard and futile to argue with Ktulu here. This is spot on, buddy :)

    it's best not to argue with him, he'll fight you.
