    tamo are the screws for the legs tightened right? I see spaces on the back of the leg where it looks like it wasn't put back together right.

    otherwise, great paint and can't wait to see the alt mode.

    With the way his back looks, he could almost be 2 separate characters in one. Sort of like Punch/Counterpunch.

    Tamo, that's just freaking fantastic. I wouldn't have thought of a seeker being used this way. The head is really what gets me about the figure.

    Very cool concept, you really nailed the bot mode compared to the original. I think maybe some panel lining or a wash would break up some of the monotony of the silver and give him some depth. Great mod on the nosecone!

    Great job and I'm glad to see you decided to use the nosecone as the gun. I think with a slight bit of modding you can get the tip of his gun to rotate down since there's already a pin in place. I'm not sure if it would look better or worse but it might be something easy to try.

    Definitely approve. Especially the use of Stockade's head - really makes it stand out compared to all the other Classic Seekers > Leader-1 classics.

    Only thing I would change at all would be to paint the eyes yellow-gold to liven it up a touch more; the overall design is a bit on the monochromatic side.

    The head could use a lil more work, and I agree with one of the earlier posters saying panel lining would help break up all; the silver.

    Always a joy to see GoBots getting done on here. Hope you push yourself to make him even better. :thumbs2:
