    Well let me start by saying that running out of paint half way really sucks! Anyways I have seen this mold used for tons of customs but I haven't seen it used for Breakdown before. The mold works great for it. Still have a ton of paint apps to apply but this gives a basic idea. Love the character, shame the official mold never made it to the US. Anyways, Main body is Marvel Crossovers Iron Man with Cybertron Dirge Head, and Hands from Seaspray

    Updated 8/5, repainted most of figure. paint is about 80 percent done, still have to add all the vehicle mode paint apps and start working on his hammer. Got some paint rub issues to address too but overall pleased with the progress

    I was worried about running out of
    paint when I worked on this mold too,
    but I have to say you did a pretty good
    job making this mold look like Breakdown!

    What a great use of the crossover mold!!! Can't wait to see it done. As soon as I saw the title to this post, I was like "duh... That mold is perfect for Breakdown". Will be checking this thread regularly!!

    Thanks, gotta pretty much repaint most of the figure. Damn Hobbytown USA never has the same colors in stock more than once. Well on the plus side I got a slightly lighter shade of blue and will put a nice metallic overcoat for the vehicle parts. Planning out a hammer type weapon for him, possibly from Animated Magnus but with a much shorter grip.
