    Pay attention, Hasbro!

    Great job. Not keen on painted windows but I know some people are... aside from that, you've improved this figure no end. The definitive Movieverse 'swipe :)

    Its a bit of a shame that the windows were dyed red and not painted, because tinted windows on this guy would make him look perfecto. Great work regardless though!!

    Nice work!
    I hate painting a whole figure silver... I don't get the silver color so smooth, but you really got it smooth! :D 
    Great job, I like him :)

    Not bad at all. :thumb 

    I'd recommend some dark washes on the robot parts to bring out the detail more, and to differentiate them from the car shell. Also, you might wanna explore painting the inside of translucent windows instead of the outside. That way, you'll never have to worry about getting the finish nice and shiny. :)
