    So here he is, this was my first custom prime figure (even though I finished sideswipe first) He is clearly FE Cliffjumper with the horns removed from the hood, and a head mod using the commander head from PCC Leadfoot. He was painted using a metallic auto paint...metallic red chrome, and then detailed using testor acrylic gloss black, and tester enamel steel and silver/chrome. I custom made the decal for the hood. Having some trouble uploading pics, more to follow :) 

    Hope you enjoy, comments are welcome. Thanks for looking

    Looks awesome man you've really figured out your signature look I'd say. I still think the trim around the windows would look incredible if they were done in silver would be just one more perfect accent for a cherry on top custom.

    That is something I may do, I have to revisit a couple of panels with the spray as the difference in shades of red has left me unhappy with the final results.
    Thanks for all the great comments guys. :)  I will probably finish prid sunstreaker and then work on the project fe figures first....

    I will say more when I have the new head he needs. :)  And I like your decal for the hood! Is it printed red on white decal paper?

    @Rumble thanks man

    @glaug its red on white laser printer decal paper thats correct, I did a whole sheet of symbols in various sizes lol and the hood seemed to sceam giant symbol IMO.

    @cliffjumperftw1 I really love the fe figures over the r.i.d. versions they are just nicer IMO. I would gladly trade a cliffjumper for any figure above wave two, because where I live we keep and only have gotten wave one....here the FE are peg warming ;)

    Hey, if you don't mind me asking.. how the heck did you remove the combiner head from PCC Leadfoot? I can't get it to budge.

    If my memories serve me correctly, It had to be unscrewed and then I had an exacto blade and I had to slowly rock it back and forth until the glue split. I hope that helps :)  good luck
