    It's The Final Countdown!!!

    Da, da, da, daaa. Da, da, da ,da ,daaaa... (I have that song in my head).

    Here he is in robot form. This guy was huge! I was waiting to repaint this guy ever since I saw pictures of the Toys R Us exclusive. I knew I was going to give him my lean green fightin' machine treatment. Basically, krylon black base coat, drybrushed 3 shade of green (almost out green), copper, silver, some copper, silver and red highlight. There were some slight modding. I made it so that the entire missile can come off. At first I cut a piece onthe back of the vehicle mode. It didn't work so I then cut a piece of the missile stand and sanded the groove on the vehicle more and it worked. If I had more skills, I would have like to put the missile on his arm like Megatron's canon.

    Still, Universe Countdown kicks ass. He is now part of my Lean Green Fightin' Machines....Now I got to get that song out of my head. IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!!!!


    MORE Pictures to come...

    Can't think of a story. I don't even know if they are Autobots or Decepticons. Hell, it they are Transformers or GOBOTS! Dropshot looks like Gobots Blaster.

    I just think of them as some badass team you do not want to mess with. I think they need one more member.

    I'd then suggest Universe Onslaught, or a de-Animated Ultra Magnus. UM is actually pretty detailed, you wouldn't have to do a whole lot to make him fit in aesthetically, and he's a nice big robot mode too.

    Someone suggested that this team needed more air support. Mr. jtfire's signature gave me an idea...
