    Since my work has finally slacked off I got a chance to finish up a commission piece that was well overdue.

    Hosehead was made from an Energon Inferno. He has been given a completely new new head built from the lower face cold of Drift and a ton of sculpt, with GI Joe pistols for the helmet guns. This version of Hosehead is not a headmaster as per the buyers request.

    When deciding what to do on his back we decided that a firetruck needs a ladder, but in place of a boring ladder that just flops around on his arm I took some liberties and made a detachable one (via magnets), that could change into a drone gunning station or be used as a bazooka!

    Once everything was done he went in for his new paint job and came out as you see here.

    Just a quick FYI: Hose head is more so based on his Marvel comics version in place of his toy/ IDW appearances, as can be seen he was given his foremans visor just like he had in Marvel Comics.

    Absolutely; the ladder/basket/cannon contraption is ingenious. And until the close-up (and before I properly read the description), I was trying to figure out what the top of the head was - I didn't realise it was entirely sculpted.
    Incredible job. I daresay that'll be a satisfied customer there. ;)
