    Snagged a scrapper Demolisher at the flea market and wanted to do something with him besides a Longhaul. I dug around the TF archives and came across this guy:
    Landfill - 1988 Transformers - TFW2005

    Reading his bio gave me an excuse to do the sloppiest paint job I have ever done, and thats a good thing!!

    The "sloppy" paint works awesome.

    Awesome. Probably could have done an Animated Wreck Gar type thing too.

    I like it. Great dirt and mud effects. Also, I like that you gave his Targetmaster partners a nod by painting the BB blasters different colors.

    I don't know how I didn't see this. Good job man! How did you get the globs of dirt effect in the bed?

    Looks good, I find that this is a very much underrated mould with decent articulation, congrats on finding something to do with him other than Longhaul.

    I approve. This is a perfect mold for G1 Landfill. You've nailed the resemblance, and the paint scheme fits the character perfectly. Love it! :thumb

    That works really well! Excellent choice of parts and the paint apps are sloppy as hell (Good work on that)!

    awesome upgrade to the classics line!!
    i love the 3d mud and dirt effects,very realistic!!
    i also had this guy planned but i couldn't figure out what to use for his t/m's,i may have to borrow your idea of the bb gats!!
    i also really like the mods/resculpting to the bendy prime head,now he looks bang on!!!:thumb
