    Hello Redicons. Next up on the line is ...Long Haul!

    So...started as an Energon Demolisher. didn't like the head, so did some minor molding to fit the face shield/G1 look of Long Haul. I also wanted the alt truck mold's grill to show as his chest so modded that as well. The head now sits up top, and is jointed into a secret hole/compartment it can hide inside. The guys come off TFTM Jet Storm. He's painted the same process as the other ones (enamels and fusion + airbrush)

    Long Haul becomes Devastator's lower torso.

    Interesting how the first shot he looks yellow.

    nice mod and great paint, man. what'd you have to do to change the chest? (I don't own the mold)



    do wha? he's been working on these for months man, he's just finally done and is slowly taking pictures of them all.

    the chest actually swings up from a rod going through it, (from the sides) the dumper on the back is connected somehow to it (kinda like auto-morphing) I basically disattached it and made the grill stay so it always is showing in the front.

    1st shot looks yellow to me too, now that they are next to each other, must be my shitty lighting techniques (or lack of)

    and, yeah, like RL said, this was a couple months of work. If you can find my WIP thread, you can see I started painting these about 2 weeks ago.

    I think we'd all agree that we'd LOVE to be able to churn out this level of work in just a day :lol 

    Anyways . . . surely I've not been alone in thinking that this Energon figure would make a good Long Haul when he came out! I must say that you did a SUPER nice job of creating a great representation of Long Haul! You've definitely taken a nice mold and made it even better!

    Great job man! :thumb

    Just as I said about Ptitvite's Long Haul, you've managed to take a figure I didn't like and make it look awesome. I love the chest mod. I would have liked the head to have had a visor like Long Haul did but otherwise I think it looks pretty good.
