    Hi folks!


    Here we have probably my most ambitious custom yet.....I know, he's small! but every one has to start modding somewhere right? He started out as basic HA pinpointer from tailpipe. I removed his head (which kinda looked like it was melted in the mold, lol) and then added a threaded metal ball joint. I then cut of his feet and also added metal balljoints to those as well. I also didn't like his popeye forarms so I got rid of those too. I left the upper arms and removed the ball from them. Then I took a set of breachers arms and added them over top the original shoulders. I took the upper arms and sliced them down the middle side to side and used the back pieces to enclose the original pinpointer upper arms. I used a head from one of the energon helicopters that I had from my 25th aniversary bruticus. I also removed a bit of the connector between his back and guns in order to have them fold a flatter in targetmaster mode. I then painted him up using GW ultramarine blue, and highlighted with tamiya sky blue and testor light blue, the arms, legs and bracket from the back where sprayed with krylon gloss white. I used copic pens for the panel lining( big thanks to fiskone for showing me them! awsome dude!) then drybrushed with tamiya silver/chrome and sealed with krylon gloss clearcoat. Hope you like him, comments and critisisms welcome and as always thanks for looking.

    I like this, wish I had thought of something like it. Looks like a whole new bot!

    Kinda inspires me to boy another tailpipe and make some mode to the targetmaster and main bot..

    thanks man, it was really fun to do and challenging at the same time. I love the way the colour scheme turned out too.

    I agree, the target masters, head, and power masters were some of the coolest TF's goin! I would love to make others, like fracus for scourge....or firebolt for my lonely BIS roddie! I was thinking the other day we should hang out again and put in some work, lol.
    Any time you want me to do up pinpointer that would be cool.
