    Continuing on with my HFTD/PCC Technobots...

    Here is HFTD G1 Lightspeed. Just a straight re-paint of HFTD Oil Pan. My only comments on this one (not being my cleanest paint job) would be that I chose Oil Pan because I figured that the orange plastic would be easier to paint over with red than Breakdown would be. But I think now it would maybe have been better to have used Breakdown. I think he looks much better in vehicle mode than robot mode. And I think I may have a good idea on how to attach him as the leg in Computron mode...we shall see...

    Looks pretty good to me. Good mold choice.

    Love the alt mode!

    As for the robot mode, it's not bad at all, but I think there's just too much red showing. A few paint apps here and there would probably help.

    Can't wait to see computron!

    Yeah, I kind of agree about the all red bot mode. I may go back and add some more white in the contoured details, maybe the wrists or knees or something....

    Car mode: Epic.

    Robot mode: Blood stained? Soaked? Or just really embarrassed?

    He seriously needs some black or white or anything to break up that red. I'd suggest blackening the robot limbs, personally.

    Love it! Great use of that mold. Looks a bit like G1 Sideswipe, actually.
