    Hey guys and gal(s?) I wanted to share this with you. I hope you get a laugh out of it. Anyways, about 2 weeks ago, my friend picked up a Gobot Rock-lord from a local flea-market. He was beat up pretty bad, so my friend, knowing I was just "fiending" for something to work on, asked me to repaint it for him. I asked him how he wanted it painted and he asked me if i could make it look like "plastic crack" since he's just as addicted to Transformers as I am. Now granted, I live dead smack in the center of the ghetto(and that's no exageration), but I honestly have no clue what the real thing looks like, other than it's white, so I just guessed. The accent colors were his choice, and I wanted to drybrush the face as well, but that's how he wanted it so that's how it stayed.

    Besides doing this for a good friend, I'd also like to dedicate this to RodimusDawg since he's "always on a plastic crack run" and all of my other fellow fiends here in Radicons. I hope this doesn't offend anyone, as it's meant to be more of a joke than a serious project. It actually took more time to scrub the years of grime off the figure than to actually paint it. I hope you guys get a laugh out of it...

    That is awesome! I'm sure there are some of those hidden somewhere at my parent's house. If I find them, I will paint them up.

    Sweet job. I used to love rock lords for some reason. Probably because they were cheaper and easier to find but I could be wrong. I know I used to have like 5 or more of them

    A Plastic Crack Bot! Nice! :lol 

    As an accessory, he should have all your hard-earned cash in his hands.

    Cool idea. Even though Rock Lords were a rather odd idea, at least they were kind of well done.

    Should have painted his eyes yellow-ish with bloodshot edges. On the high end, put a little servo motor in him that made him twitch every once in a while.
    Oh, this can go no where good.

    Thanks guys! I'm glad you like him. I wish I had more so I could do one for myself. He's kinda growing on me, but now I gotta go drop him off.

    Hah, love it. And y'know, as bad as Rock Lords do suck, there's at least one of 'em I used to have that I'd way buy again.

    Anyhoo, once again, nice work there.

    Ha! Yesterday I went to drop this guy off to his owner and I mentioned how much started liking him after he was finished, and my friend tols me I could keep him as long as I make him another one. Now I'm on the hunt for more Rocklords. Thanks again for the comments guys!

    Smog- Great idea! I mentioned it to someone who builds dollhouses and she said there's a website that sells mini-money that she thinks would fit in his hand. I'm gonna look into it.

    Edit: I just noticed... My 1st 5 star post... WooHoo! lol

    Not a bad idea... Like I said, I'm on the hunt for at least one more. If I can find more than one for the right price(I have NO idea what these even sell for now) I might just have to try that. I wouldn't mind having a custom allspark cube for my shelf.
