    I removed the "engine" on the hood to make place for the autobot symbol in alt mode, the guns were removed as well, since I didn't want to go for the military look, and I added some pieces on his chest, for a more G1 accurate look.

    You're style is awesome. I'd like to see what you could do with some old M.A.S.K. toys.

    I love your cartoon style. Its so fresh. I dig what you did with beachcomber too. Making me want to get this mold and do it mine more and more. I also love the prime. How did you fill in his stomach and buff his upper arms?

    THAT IS AWESOME!

    I've haven't seen this figure yet. Is that his original head sculpt? This works so well.

    Thanks!
    I used parts from a truck model for that Prime.

    Thanks man!
    Yeah, that's the original headsculpt (I guess the guys at Hasbro had Beachcomber in mind when they designed this figure)

    hahaha
    I picked up the last one when I was searching it!

    And thanks to all of you who liked this little fella and left me a message here! :D

    Man this looks so good. Even with the Walmart release of this color scheme on the same figure, this looks so much better I might just repaint it all myself instead.

    Decisions decisions
