    from Bumblebee to.....
    well it's what's inside that counts.

    made from an old Cliffjumper I had laying around, seems the mold
    better fits the Throttlebot than the Minibot.

    headwise since i'm not sculptor and without much for tools
    I made a mouthplate.. Prime style

    this one is about a year old with a few repaints to the legs
    and arms since I had gotten new paints and the old paint
    was flaking.


    is there such thing as too much gold?
    on an Autobot I kind of thought so, so his thighs are his accent color.
    and yes he is kind of rough, not on par with my recent Thundercracker
    and Skywarp, but you learn as you go.

    hope he measures up...


    for anyone wanting to see my other customs....

    It's interesting to see this piece along with your recent work. As cool as this piece is, you can definitely tell you've been pushing yourself more and more. I really hope Radicons has helped you grow as an artist :) 

    Keep up the good work :thumb

    Thanks for the positive comments.

    my next planned custom is going to be a direct G1 ratchet repaint
    with desumofying mods (like Ironhide).......
    as soon as I can find and get one / they release him whichever,
    I finally found Inferno just Monday. I would paint him, but I don't have
    $$$ for an extra one.

    Awesome work on the face mask. I think he fits the Goldbug mold as well.
