    so far its just been a simple head swap. i also painted the pipes on his arms silver. i am going to swap the wings out for hot shot's, so they will be all orange.

    other than that and maybe a few silver highlights, i don't know what else to do. anyone got any ideas?

    There's some other touching up you can do with the silver- the shoulders mainly, I added some to the vents on the inside of the legs too. You could go for some repainting on the chest if you want to emulate the flame thing, maybe pattern it after the GF version.

    Looks good.



    Yeah, Hotrod's wings are supposed to be yellow. But something tells me it would be a real shot to the nuts to try and turn those wings yellow.

    Why? I lot of repaints have yellow wings and they don't look bad.

    I'm in the middle of a similar Cybertron Hotrod project. My recommended changes to Excilion:

    *The chest is sooooooooooo close to Hotrod's hood chest. Use a tiny bit of putty to fill in what needs to be filled in and paint it like hotrod's hood.

    *The whole back end of the car looks like ass. I'm ditching everything on that orange rotating bit of plastic and sculpting a better car back and more convincing G1 wing for the 'bot mode.

    *His legs are too blocky. Hollow out the front a bit like G1 Hotrod.
