    These are repaints of the Smokescreen mold faithful to the Alternators mold at some point I might take all 3 Steppers Ricochets I have, the 3 inch, reissue and Alternator.

    The flames on Ricochet are the hardest things to mirror since it is so small it is hard to trace the flame exactly so I had to eyeball it one is still not finished.

    The Silverstreak was somewhat easier since he is all silver, it took alot of coats of red to cover the silver on the thighs.

    I also but some Reprolabels on the 2 Subaru guns like the alts.

    The Goldbug is a Bumblebee with a piece of Gundam slapped on the back to simulate the car tail that turns into Goldbug's back, I did not want to go too crazy making him look like he Transformed like Goldbug and not Bumblebee.

    His gun is the normal gun for the 3 inch but I altered it to look like the gun I have seen in a couple of the screencaps of the show since the figure had nothing in the way of arms. His chest has a slight "dip" in it since I was itching to paint and did not sand it all the way down, thinking about making another more planned out version.

    I gave him some gold "brass Knucles" to break up the dark blue, the black is all painted the dark blue like the figure, it is just hard to tell over the black.
