    Found out about this character awhile ago and finally decided to to make a version of him that reflects his mercenary self. Not only is he a side switcher but he is dirty looking and oil stained all thanks to a black wash.

    Det can change switch his chest plate to whatever side he is working for. His shoulder armor change be used as paldrons or positioned as wings. I used lego to make him and multi function long range weapons system that can be held, placed in the vehicle mode or even seperated and used as a rifle and binoculars. His pistol is from a Sigma 6 Duke with a 5mm rod inserted. The spare tire also serves a purpose and can be held as a shield. Finally what Junkion isn't complete with a Melee energon axe!

    I wanted to have a little fun with this figure so I did that with his vehicle mode. Similar to his bot mode having 2 different factions to pick from I wanted to emphasize the mercenary part of him with a split logo (Decep/Auot) on each side. The one sides factions symbols are damaged just like his body as you can see various knicks, dents, and scratch (OH and bullet holes) all over the place. I also replaced the solid black window with a clear one that has taken a few bullets and is cracked.

    To add a little humor to his alt mode he also features a removeable FOR SALE sign in his window and his license plate is also "4 SALE".

    I also want to mention that I ran the tires thru wet brown paint and spattered his body in the wet brown as well to give it dirty piece o' crap look!


    Thanks for looking,
    Shinobi

    Wow.

    The fact that this is fully functional and I still can't recognize what it's made from is already amazing, but the extra features and accessories manage to make it even more special.

    On top of all that, I love the 4 Sale sign. It's a lot of fun.

    The for sale sign is priceless! The head is throwing me off a bit though.... I don't know why.
