    I know there are about 15 of these customized and posted here a week, but here is my take...
    I did this for myself so I only fixed what bugged me.
    Gave him a ball joint neck, permanently affixing the sound button to the back of his neck and disabling the green eye lights, then fully repainted him. I used many movie screen caps for reference to try and paint him as accurately as I could.
    Since he is mostly black, I painted him in flat, semi-gloss, and gloss black, as well as gunmetal, steel, silver, and gold. Same colors as in the flickz. Hand drawn in license plate, so that's why that sucks, lol.

    Maybe one day i will give him more accurate cannons too.

    I may add the vehicle mode shots later. Need to buy more Tamiya tint spray for his windows before I can call the alt mode completed.

    Agreed! Maybe Reprolabels or someone will make a sticker of his license plate sometime...

    Wrongo. Pics attached below should clear that up. he did have the license plate, right where I put it, and I even put the exact same numbers, letters, and other details on it.

    Great pics! I never looked that closely at the CGI model to realize his bumper forms the top and bottom of his abdomen. It seems like they should have been able to put that in his transformation if they didn't use all that space for lights and sounds...

    I admit I didn't put much effort into the guns because I will probably give him new ones. I decided to do that, so I am making new big guns that actually fit over the arm blocks with the retracted smaller guns inside.

    That's incredible! I've never seen such an accurate looking toy. *.*

    Well done! I especially love the details on the face and the scarred optic.
