    Here's a preview of custom no4.Ol'Longarm with a resculpted movie style head.I think getting rid of the silly cat head improves the feel of the figure quite a bit! I'll try and get some more photos when he's finally done!

    Nice weathered look, but the head was better before IMO. Should of kept it.

    Nice. longarm looked way to clean to me. A tow truck should look grimy. Good job.

    I kind liked Longarm's old head. Retro-oldschool but still new and movie-style.

    The grime and rust is really good. I have all my movie Autobots with scuffs and wethering in robot mode like in the movie but clean in vehicle mode, though I may decide to grime-up my longarm...

    ...Eww...

    I actually love Longarm's original head, but that re-sculpt you gave him is awesome!

    I just couldn't get on with whole cat pin-head feel of the original.It just didn't tie in with the look of any of the movie characters,all of which had a humanoid face.This makes him look more of a heavyweight bruiser than some sort of robo-anubis.Anyhoo if you really hate the resculpt it just unclips off the face of the original head.

    This is cool. Nice custom though, very realistic to say the least.

    One of wife's necklaces eh? Hope you didnt spend too much on it.

    As far as goes the custom, excellent job. Love the BWII Galvatron marble look.
