    Okay. So third on my list was Blackout. I did see the transforming Blackout on here. That is awesome. But again, I am trying to get as close as robot mode to represent the feeling of seeing them on the big screen.
    I am hoping Blackout is going to be the most impressive yet!!! I am taking a few liberties and adding A LOT MORE WEAPONS!!! Here is the basic insides with the gun that will be coming from the chest.

    I have painted the whole model as if it has been flying in the dessert. It is the blue-grey with a light brown mist (dust) along the bottom side and dirt splatters. I will be doing a lot of decals, weather, and then cutting it up!

    Here it is.

    Man...you are just moving right along aren't you?!

    I'd have to say that right after Barricade, Blackout was my second fave of the movie cast.

    I am really looking forward to what you do with this one Encline. But, if its anything like the previous works you have cranked out....I know you wont disappoint.

    Man, I can't beleive you are starting this! It just so happens, I just molded and casted in hydrospan the Hasbro figure head. I plan on growing this twice so I can get a 1/18th (or close to it) size head for 1/18th kit bash version. As soon as the first cast is grown, I will take a pick for you so you can see if it will be big enough for your project.

    Man you are on fire! We need to get a botcon down here in Atlanta. I am going to be watching this entry like a hawk to see how this turns out! I love how parts are already close to final color I became frustrated with my Blackout with all the differant colored kibble all over him.It was hard to see the final project. good luck!

    nice use of those cyber units!!

    they, by themselves, sucks hard, but definitely got many pieces that are worth the bought, and here you are proving us that even their combiner can look good if you use it for something else.

    i can't wait to see it finished!
