    Based on Frenzy-Rumble's idea, I decided to give it a try at this seeker, since I really love working with ice effects, and this is the only transformer that fits that look!

    I use a mix of materials for the ice effect (pretty much based on what it's used in the film industry) and it's protected by several coats of automotive clear coat. It's durable and it won't rub, unless it's directly scratched.
    I worked mainly with blue and some dark shaded of grey and black (kind of a Sub-Zero look)

    The rest, is the now usual hip kibble mod and some sanding and shaving off the potential rub points.


    These last picture was taken out of the light box and with direct light applied, just to show some of the shininess that's somewhat missing in the other pictures. It also shows the "ice glittering" effect that is also missing in the other pictures, but is visible under natural lighting conditions.


    Good luck and happy bidding!
