    classics battle damaged g2 pyro.this is a bot that i find rather difficult to let go of.(it was just as hard damaging him up)
    iirc, the head is taken and modified from a cybertron wingsaber,donated awhile back by local member hughdahman.
    his new giant gattling gun is a combination of cybertron landmine's leg,a arm from a green and white digimon thing,some lego pieces,darth vader's chest detail(first version)and a k'nex wheel.

    the other big water cannon/rifle is made from a combination of g1 onslaught's small bot mode chest shield,2 finger leds,a k/o rifle of g2 jazz and a forearm piece from a robotech beta bot.
    his smallest cannon/antenna is lego and megablocks.
    the new water tanks that adorn his alt mode sides and beef up his bot mode legs are from a 1/32 scale semi-truck's fuel tank,cut in half and glued then screwed.almost everything modded onto him is screwed as i don't trust just glue alone.

    the battle damage was done with a soldering iron,36 grit sand paper and a torch/flathead screwdriver.

    all was first base coated in automotive flat black enamel,then every other color is hand painted with tamiya acrylics.everything's received a dust coat of u/v resistant automotive clearcoat.
    his electronic lights and sounds still work,albiet minus the two leds that used to be right behind his original cannons on the turret and the one in his head.(it's also the first version of onslaught,so his siren sound gets cut off)

    (side note,without them doing what they do around the world,we wouldn't have the lives we have and live.)


    bot mode,which also received more of a grey wash than the alt mode,along with more edge painting with tamiya silver metallic.the attached pic is what i was using as a coloring reference from idw.

    very very cool. I do think the lego pieces might have benefited from shaving off the pegs though, to make them look less lego-y. Gives me an idea what to do with the onslaught i have just sitting around.

    I ALWAYS love seeing Pyro customs, I like to think of him as the Fire-bug of the Convoys ;) 

    Yours looks suitably rough and tumble :) 


    Sweet job!
