    Lastly but by far the least. This one is my personal fave and I hate this mold. But just the sleekness of the alt mode just took to the motif sooooo well. Keeping with the Street Racing Honeycomb Kickback has purple toward the rear of his car mode.

    I laid off with the gold on this a bit to keep the luxury car feel it has. I want Sauve not overbear jerk with a lot of money if you get what I mean.

    Very cool. You could also mis-transform to get a more insect looking mode too.

    Crap didn't think of that one. I can't take any more pics today I am going crazy. 3 threads in 3 hours dang near killed me. That included resizing and croppin. I is a dead man.

    Thanks Mogel.

    Actually believe it or not the visor is stock and untouched for the base figure.

    I used mini airbrush stencils. If you search them online a plethora of them will pop up. I plan on getting more and utilizing them.

    Thanks comments like this inspire me more. I always try and push my self more and more with each custom.

    I like him best the most Alt mode wise. He was the first one done and I knew he was going to be the best looking one.

    No prob. I am going to try and get a custom a week up for the next few months so keep and eye out.
