    As per usual, I try to do one custom a month. This was actually intended to be the December Custom, but it poured into January for multiple reasons. Anyways, I used a K.O Cybertron Scourge (you know the one) as the base. Switching the heads with the hands doesn't require any modding of the sort. I originaly wanted the "back" to be Doublecross' front for bot mode, but when I tried this out it looked really ridiculous :x I ran into some problems switching the head peg back to its original spot (hence why the head is a li'l lop-sided)

    Painted with Testors Model Master Acryl, with labels from Reprolabels. Coated with Krylon Matte Finish (I can never find Testors Dullcote, grr)

    Unfortunately this will probably be my last serious repaint/kitbash for a while. Its getting too expensive for my unemployed self to do these even on a monthly basis :c

    The resemblance in the head was the inspiration for this project. Its a bummer there's not a less organic dragon Transformer to make a good Doublecross kitbash/repaint (unless there was some serious modifying involved)

    I don't think you needed any modding to get his character across, as a quality paint job and nice colour balance does it really well. Its like the Classics line... contemporary.

    If anyone could find a place to put all that extra stuff, be my guest D: There's very little room for aditions on this figure without having alot of removable parts (something I try to avoid) Besides, the long back of the li'l dragon heads are close enough to horns :b adding horns on horns would look silly.

    This is sweet. Totally not a figure I expected to see homaged, but I love it, and the color scheme is dead-on, too.
