    It's Blaster! I got the idea to make Barricade into him when i was trying to make him stand up right. He transforms into the Fictionous radion and tv station KMPH party mobile (although the vehicle doesn't exist, the station does.)

    wow. that was fast. Yes it's blaster! The only real mods i did were making it so his fist wont punch and i chopped of his horns and chin. He transforms into the radio and tv station KMPH party mobile, which is why he retains the lights.

    urm..... paint job is very rough... im hoping you choose to fix up the paint and give him a much much cleaner look.....

    concept is really good though.....

    my reccomendation would be to completly sand him down, primer him and repaint form scratch....

    and when your done.. you will have some awesomeness!

    hmmm.. well unless my eyes are blurred from too much drinking (which I wouldnt be surprised after this long weekend here in australia... lol) or my computers screen is fuzzled.... noticed the paint details are a rough brush on....

    as I said.. if this was my custom, id do the following -

    a) sand him down so you can see the black again (rememebr to use the overnight soak and wet sand method, since youve already painted him)
    b)use a grey primer coat (preferably tamiya)... great flat grey
    c) use acrylic or enamel paint (acrylic is my preference.. but everyones got their own opinion... and do 3-4 THIN coats)
    d) the lettering you have roughly brushed on, try creating a 'stencil' using a peice of cardboard and a hobby knife and paint over that stencil...

    once you do that.. itll be a quality ready for botcon!

    heres an example of a movie fab prime repaint I did -

    for more info have a look @ jin saotome's repaint guide for transformers....

    Goro- maybe the reason is that he's using different paints then what we use and that he's just learning how to paint that's all. it may not be a good reason, but that what I'm thinking.
