    Here is Leader-1 from the Gobots. I used the Ironman Transformers Crossover figure because he already has a Leader-1ish look to him. However this is such a crappy figure that every second painting it sucked. So many rubbing issues and paint flaking. I may have to revisit this guy on day but for now I am happy that I do have an upgraded Leader-1 figure to go with my other Gobot customs.

    Wow, painting issues aside, that does look terrific, and the mold really works for him. Nice job dude. :thumb

    I bought that same mold and was thinking what I wanted done. I was thinking more along the lines of a combiner. Hehe... That's a really good take on Leader 1. Cy-Kill next?

    Cy-kill next? He's already been done. That's an old custom.

    Nice choice! I have one too, and while I'm keeping the black and silver scheme, I've been trying to figure out what different head to use.

    You've definitely made this guy work. :)

    wow , nice job on this. I agree the marvel tfs have a lot of rubbing issues, also the paint doesn't stick as well. I recommend using dye or a sharpie

    My biggest beef with this mold is the horrible, horrible shoulders.

    Looks great! I wonder if you could remold/add that visor for a bit more likeness.
    Colors look solid though, GJ!

    It needs a new head, badly. Maybe Tomahawk's?

    if you could get a bit of a mouth on tomahawk's head (even without a nose, prime style) and manage some kind of a nod to the flat bits on the side, whatevers possible with it still being able to transform..

    also a couple of little paint tweaks to stop him being uniform grey, as leader 1's red and black bits are pretty prominent -
