    Been a long time since I started this guy. I have been touching him up a bit though, so I thought I'd share

    List of things I've done to him:
    Reworked head (trimmed and added styrene)
    Sanded chest smooth
    added styrene to lenghten chest
    Hands from Cliffjumper
    Sculpted wrists
    Cut windows off doors and glued to roof
    Trimmed hinge so roof could open
    Swapped out lots of parts from blue version of the mold
    Drilled and added pipes from clocker to legs
    Added third triangle to each shin guard
    Cut out spike area of fin (behind his head)
    Cut out Matrix cavity (Still need to work out chest hinge)

    yup. I'm still working on the car mode hood (filling/smoothing the air vents) but I can snap a pic anyways.

    Cool. The new chest and the paint apps definitely scream Rodimus now. Hadn't noticed how effective a repaint to said character would be.

    Good stuff. :thumb

    I've always enjoyed when artists dust off a project and return to it with a new perspective and new additions to them. Great work here :thumb

    Added a couple more pics to show that yes it still transforms and what the hinge mod does. still working on the hood and maybe fin areas.

    Oh, and no I don't plan on making a trailer for this guy. I think Masterpiece did that in a way I will never be able to compare, so I'm leaving this guy Hot Rod. He'll be my classics scale HR until a bootlegger shrinks down the masterpiece one.
