    Finally finished, and this is my first set using the new photo tent so apologies if the photos don't look perfect. Shinobitron's version inspired me to do this, based on the Energon/Cybertron/whichever Hardtop mold:

    I was trying to add a bit to the chest to make it resemble the G1 figure (and toon version) a bit more:

    Lol that's cool bro, no disrespect intended! It's just the third pic from the top, it looks like it pokes out a bit. I'm not sure if that's the mold itself, I don't have an Energon Hardtop...

    But seriously, this is sick! I really what you added to the head, squared it out!

    Very nice! I really like the paint apps--this definitely looks like Beachcomber and makes me want to pick up one of these to do one myself. Also, it's cool to see others using some of those paints--I've used them a bit on parts for some of my customs and they work nice and have some nice color choices (such as this one you used). Keep up the great work, bro!

    very nice. this has hasbro repaint written all over it. came out looking great. spotted those chest mods right away. spot on. the head mods look great too. one suggestion and this would only be for my inner geek which also happens to be my outer geek, one gold hand. or not.
