    First of all, I want to give a HUGE thank-you to all of the great kitbashers across the various websites (TFW, Sector70 and Procustomizers.com) for inspiring me to do this project, as well as those who have directly helped me along the way (a master list of which will be included with the final showcase thread).

    This first thread features Spike, the Headmaster parter of Cerebros. Spike has been given upper & lower body articulation as well as a brand new paint job. I used bits from Universe Cyclonus' targetmaster buddy (forget his name), Perfect Effect Shadow Warrior and a G1 Spike. I used a base coat of Testors dark blue, then went over that with Folkart blue sapphire acrylic.

    I've also included a video on YouTube:


    As always, comments and productive critiques are always welcome.

    Enjoy!

    GREAT use of the Shadow Warrior parts! I wouldn't have thought of that, but it works REALLY well!

    Alright somebody queue this guy to play the Space Odyssey theme to a pictorial slideshow. Fort Max can sub in for the Monolith. This entire project is [Epic], if not [Legendary].

    Dude, I was actually planning on using that music for the third video that features Fort Max, but I thought it may be too cheesy, lol.

    this is fantastic but I cant help but feel that if you go with a games workshop paint called boltgun metal or gray it's one of those names. But It would give a fantastic look to the gray metal areas on this guy and make him look more bold and even more kick ass.

    I'd love to see the alt mode, as the rest of this looks great. I know you're gonna be happy to have this whole project completed :) 

    The bursting through the wall photos are great :)
