    My final G2 entry (at least until I get my hands on some more G1 junkers). I've been wanting a pink and orange Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime since '86. Hot Rod was more purplish in the G2 comics so I used that pallet for my G2 version of him. I decided to use the 80's New Wave scheme on Rodimus. He's kinda plain without any stickers but until I decide on what colors to use (and get my printer working) these pics will have to do. In case anyone is wondering what's up with the spoiler, this figure didn't come with one. I had to carve one out of a kids plastic plate and attach it with an old Bionicle peg:lolol

    Looks pretty neat. I may have a re-re-re-reissue g1 hot rod to donate to your cause.

    Edit: figure is titled "Rodimus Major" so not sure which reissue this is, or just a KO

    The only Rodimus Major reissue I'm familiar with is a 2002 Rodimus Prime reissue. Regardless... I'm interested in reissues OR KOs as long as the price is right;)  Personally...I LOVE playing around with KOs because of the freedom their weirdness offers. It's a fun challenge that's usually inexpensive. So far the only KO repaint I'm proud of is

    Yeah, this is just the color study to test colors and their ratios. I'm still searching for some 'extreme 90s' graphics that I like.

    Good to know! Not asking much, just how much i got it for. I have too many of the current stuff to be collecting the G1 stuff anymore :D  the only one I want is a G1 Powermaster Optimus, because I remember playing with that a lot when I was a kid.
