    I'm sure everyone has seen something similar before, but here's my take on it. I'm a diehard g1-toon fan, so this was a natural. Thoughts/comments welcom. FYI if anyone is interested in it, I am selling it on Ebay.

    Yeah, I may go back and re-paint all the grey with a primer-style darker grey, but for now, I left the red there.

    the drawback to going for total cartoon accuracy is how plain it makes a figure look. That being said, it does what you wanted it to, so nice job. :)

    Yeah, i am fine with the plain-look. I know the more popular opinion on here is to make things as detailed as possible, but like I said, I prefer the simplistic cartoon designs.

    I think I can simply echo what REDLINE has pointed out, but to also reinforce what your tastes are in toys. That's the essence of customs and kitbashing: making something you want that that either wasn't offered as an option to you to begin with, or creating something totally from your own imagination that would never be realized had the artist him/herself not have made it.

    Great job man and keep em coming! :thumb 

    (Any other plans for Classics?)
