    Good morning everyone.

    Yeah! Finally finished up this guy, and dudes...I'm really excited with the final results.
    I think it got really "IDW-esque."

    The W.I.P pics are here:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/381099-impactor-classics-lsotw-w-i-p.html

    Despite the issues with the head I described on my W.I.P thread, I assume that it ended up really good, even with the head I have here. (Powerlinx Inferno).

    If I ever manage to put my hands on the package Brunkion76 sent to me, I'll update this thread with version 2.0 of this custom, with the modified Classics Ironhide head instead of this one.
    (Thank you very much Bryan, I hope that the package gets to me someday, It's not your fault bro!)

    Paint apps in orange and silver with Colorart Spray and purple parts with Tamiya acrilics.
    Orange and Silver parts painted by me and purple apps were very well done by my old friend Ricbot. Thank you again bro, you rock!! I owe you some pints indeed!

    Smaller details on chest and knees were crafted in estyrene.

    Ok, hope you guys enjoy the Wrecker as much as I do.

    BEAUTIFUL paint work....I would NOT have pegged this as a custom if I didn't know better!

    Same goes for the build!

    Yup! Now that's how you do an Impactor! It's as though he's stepped straight off the page & into real life. Absolutely kick-ass job Mate! :thumb 

    Now let me see if I can reach through my monitor & take him... :lol

    This is awesome looking! I love all the details you were able to add to him. He really looks a lot like his comic counterpart. This is definitely the best Impactor custom I've seen. Great work man!

    This is one of my favorite Impactors I've seen here. You have me regretting that I rid myself of the Demolisher mold. That's a miracle in itself :lol 

    Great work :thumb

    It's been a while since I've seen something on the boards that's really made me want to get back into kitbashing.

    This is truely an awesome peice of work.

    Any chance of some pics with some other standard Hasbro Bots to get an idea of scale?
