    Here's a new version of G1 Mindwipe. Made from 6 different figures, Mindwipe stands just under 8 inches tall from head to toe. Painted with Testors Acrylics and Enamels, sealed in a flat finish.

    Awesome Dan! May have to try something similiar in the near future. Way better than the first version IMO. The proportions of his arms, body and legs to his head are what really seal it for me, just a superb rendition brother!

    I spot Inferno/Grappel shoulders and Gen Thrust's wing jets along with Gen Scourge's gun and, of course, G1 Mindwipe. Those thighs and the lower legs and feet look familiar but I just can't put my finger on them...

    Fantastic work ! The colours are really vibrant.

    The only thing I'd love to see extra is head articulation... but since
    the G1 headmaster slot doesn't accommodate that .... oh well.

    I think I can see all the figures used in this... nice! Really innovative. He looks fantastic.

    It's funny, I never really cared about Mindwipe, but I love these G1 inspired customs for him. You'd think the ROTF mold would do the job, but for some reason that blocky aesthetic with his character always looks great! :thumb
