    Okay, boys and girls, here's an update on my Mirage Custom. His alt mode is now primed and painted. I'm waiting on the remainder of my paints to arrive before proceeding to completion. Here's what's left to do:


    Touch-up of two areas on car body,

    Paint the windshield with window tint,

    paint the details in alt mode ( lights, wheels, and air flow vents) then glosscote.

    Paint the robot mode.

    Alt the head I chose to use, then paint it.

    And that's pretty much it. I wont have his wrist blades or sniper rifle complete for another couple of weeks. I'll post pics of it once it's complete, and if you like what you see, You can PM me about a commission. Thanks for looking.

    Looks cool man, and something that's easy enough to do as well (may give it a go!). I just got the idea looking at the car mode, to use a ROTF Swerve head on him, and FE arcee blades, with a gen. Blurr sniper rifle (optional). I think I'm gonna make that happen:)  Thanks for the inspiration!

    Yeah, Swerve's head is my back -up in case my custom doesn't work.

    If it doesn't work out, let me know and I'll build one on commission for you. I'm not gonna charge a lot for them.

    I'm assuming this is just a normal repaint? and the body structure will remain the same, right?

    For the most part, yes. I had originally intended to use a longer pin on the arms to allow the doors to swivel up and back out of the way, to at least give the appearance of being on his back, but I couldn't find a pin that would work and allow normal transformation.

    His hands will be altered with retracted claws like Mirage has, and his arms will be altered for the wrist blades, but nothing noticeable.

    The head I use will be the most modified part. Later I plan to add exhaust pipes like the ones seen on Mirage in the DOTM video game, once I find what I need.

    His feet will also get fold out sections as well to better resemble Mirage, but they too will be added later.

    My primary intent with this is to add Mirage to my Autobot toys; nothing more, nothing less. The money I make from any commissions will be used to buy Wheeljack.

    Yea, I know what you mean man. I wish Mirage was given his own toy right from the start. But we got BB repaints up the wazoo.

    What are your plans for his wrist blades? Are they gonna be a custom mold?

    I like it. Always wanted to see this done since the car mode looks a bit like Dino/Mirage if he entered the TFP universe.
