    Or my version of DOTM Leadfoot anyhow. Since he didn't get a deluxe figure with the other Wreckers, I thought I'd make him one for my collection. I know he's getting a HA scale version sometime within the next month or so, but I just couldn't wait. Started him last weekend and just finished up putting the decals on that I got in today. I wasn't able to get a small enough copy of his actual decal set for his race car, so I came up with my own recipe instead! So instead of #42 he's now #41, and although very similiar to the "on screen" look, he's minus the beer gut look in bot mode, and unique in his own way. Figures that died (most from the parts bins) so he may rise are:

    DOTM BB
    HFTD Elita-1
    DOTM Topspin
    Gundam hands
    Border Break kit Blade
    2 launchers from the old GOW weapons set (they fit the mechtech port holes!)


    I used a flat black Krylon spray paint for his base coat, and the red used is Testors Revving Red. Citadel boltgun metal/mithril silver added for the drybrush touch-ups, then finished off with several coats of Krylon Matte finish. Enjoy Folks! C&C are always welcome!

    Also forgot to mention used a Generations Driftfor chest plate, and a HFTD Crankstart for the two gattlin guns on the roof, A PCC Leadfoot for the engine, and a DOTM Powerglide for the missiles. Whew, that's alot of figures. More pics of car mode.

    Impressive work. If I hadn't seen the real Leadfoot, I'd swear this was an official figure.

    Awesome, love it but please post some normal poses too, the dynamic poses are cool, but you cannot see much :)

    It may not be movie accurate, but it looks awesome. Love the mods you made, and the additional weapons fit in perfectly. :thumb

    new pics

    Thanks for the feedback guys, it's much appreciated after all the work that went into him (dealing with those tiny decals can be a nightmare alone!). As requested, here's some less dynamic, or neutral, poses of the third and neglected wrecker- Leadfoot!

    @ KnightConvoy-

    HaHaahaaa, funny as hell man! That's my thoughts exactly, I jus wanted something a little more on the cool side. I'll still be getting the HA figure because i love the scale and detail of these figures (hoping they rlease all three in this scale as well), but the pic I saw of it leaves alot to be desired. Thanks man!

    Really outstanding work. I like these colours a lot better than Topspin's. Same goes for the headsculpt and the hands.

    This is soo good. Maybe could do with a beard like pics of legends. But i like the fact you used the head of the neglected biker sister for the neglected wrecker

    Love this. Great work. Even though I hope Leadfoot gets a deluxe figure, this is a great stand alone custom work that looks great!!
