    Here's my third Stunticon, Dead-End

    Used a prowl mold with Highscore's head.

    He's not finished just yet, some detailing and his con symbles still to do
    Waiting on Reprolabels for some time now. May have to call.
    He's drying right this second after having the stripe painted on, so i'll update this thread later.
    Just some fun shots and poses.

    The best picture is the one where he's slumping. Great personality.

    That being said, I'm not sure how I feel about the headlights being visible in robot mode but not in car mode - between the white headlights and the black grille detail, it looks like a big smiley face on his chest... and that just won't do for Dead End, will it? :D

    Very nicely done, very clean paint. are you gonna gloss the windows? blacklining the panels and decepticon reprolabels and maybe a licenseplate would make this baby real eyecandy.

    This might look nice, but it doesn't suit Dead End very much -> Silver metallic paint + Tamiya clear blue (x23)... Tried it on barricade to make a sky-reflection with clouds, but I fxxxed the clouds...

    edit: Sorry, I really need to read the descriptions, rather than just look at the pictures xD

    ^lol no problem. Yeah he's not 100% yet, been waiting on reprolabels for a while now, bought them through ebay due to their site not working on my computer for some weird reason, and i may have to write them.

    I tried to stay away from silver the best i can. Each of the three Stunticons i did has their own detail color, Wildrider silver/red, Breakdown orange/blue, and Dead-end gold/dark grey.

    The gold stripe i did on him yesterday bled quite a bit, so i'm spending the day doing touch up work to keep him as clean as possible.

    I was planning on putting him up on ebay soon as well, and may have to just do it without the con symbles for now.

    From a cheap Walmart generic toy set called M.A.R.S or something like that. Seen a few of the single figures at Shop-ko, but during christmas time they had a whole bunch of sets at wally world and that's where i got the weapons for all my Stunticons. I just mod them with lego connectors to fit the 5mm peg holes better.
    I use them for all my classics just about.

    Thanks, i wanted to have him with the faceplate, and the head just fit darn near perfect. I had to cut off the origional post as it was just a swivel, and make my own ball joint connection. He can look up down and a full 360.
