    THIS is the guy I've been wanting to make for a long time. I used the Generations Drift figure. I slightly modified the head by trimming the and rounding off the points. The bot mode looks similar to the original Gobot figure and so all I did was painted him all red.

    I'd been wondering what to make Drift into.

    Spread the Gobot love!

    That is soooo cool!
    Very awesome work! ;) 
    I'm always wondering how you get your paint in this unique style on your figures. Anyway it looks damn amazing!

    It looks nice and clean man. The red came out really well. Sometimes your paint apps look like airbrushing (that's how good they look). Awesome job Solrac!

    Not really a GoBot fan, but this great!
    Drift was the perfect choice for this.

    Turbo was my favorite Gobot as a child. Would have loved if Drift could have had the full visor, but this looks supremely fantastic the way it is.

    Maybe Hasbro can use this mold as a Turbo repaint like they did with Crasher using Mirage.

    Which contest? The site is under maintenance right now. Wouldn't I be disqualified for just posting these anyway?
