    Idea-Concept-Realization, that how most things start, even if it's working with something already in production. I bought a TFA Rodimus and being a lover of "Transfomers: the Movie" (1986) and Hot Rod respectively, I decided to pay homage to a classic with a current. The below image is my "idea-concept-realization" and while I am sure others have done this same thing, just showing off mine :)  the middle Image is photoshoped, the last image is the actual painted figure.

    very nice, It probably doesn't alter that vehicle mode too much either.

    Thank you :) 

    with the rotating exhaust it's pretty much stock in car mode, only differance is the "feet" actually look like driving lights like on the original Hot Rod.

    here's another one I am working on, I am still very much in WIP mode with. but so far coming along fairly well. I have since changed the flames and glued the front feet parts to the hood to clean up the feet a bit. Still allot more painting and detail work left to go. Alas my painting skills aren't what they were when I was in my 20's lol (eyes and hands have gone a bit south lol)

    I like that you used the backpack on the Swerve repaint to mimic Hot Rod's spoiler. Very clever. :thumb 

    I like the TFA touch-ups too.

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know if anyone is making or has made a G1 head sculpt for the TFA Rodimus Minor? I know there is a production line for the TFA Arcee (mine should be coming in the mail next week along with Arcee)
