    Here is Electrum Thrust. Based on the episode "The Golden Lagoon" where Beachcomber find Electrum. Thrust was the first Decepticon to find it and jump in.

    I used the Generations Thrust figure and gave him the same treatment I always do but used brass and gold. I also modified the wings to make him more accurate.

    Looks nice man, like the metallic look. I can see the subtle hints of gold but it does look very silvery, did you use a flash when taking pics? It looks like the light maybe drowning out the colour leaving it shiny silverish

    You wanna make him more accurate put the VTOL engines on the other side of the wings, and in alt mode attach the guns to the horizontal tailfins. It might sound stupid, but it isn't. Makes the engines visible in robot mode, plus there's no point in having them for alt mode if they can't "blow" in the right direction.

    I did not use flash.

    Good thing those are removable and can be placed anywhere.

    I like it! Especially since that is probably a more realistic shade of Gold than the brighter yellows always seen. It also fits in line with external body-covering shields like Animated Ironhide's ability or even the Colussus from X-men.

    It looks good. I've been meaning to do several of the TF's like this but I haven't been able to find the right shade of gold I like.

    I like it. You give the Electurm affect a more modern look with the brass and gold.

    This thread inspired me. I was going to buy an extra Thrust tonight to do up Electrum style, but then I found the Iron Man Mark IV. Thrust went back on the shelf.

    you could always go the Lucky Draw route and do Vacuum sealed Gold Chrome. :D 

    looks good though all things considering.

    Basically, you trim a tiny piece off the corner on that wing hinge. It allows the wing to fold the other way. I saw the mod somewhere here. I don't remember who did it.

    Make an Electrum Mark IV then. :)
