    My fastest repaint! Took only 4 evenings and I'm very satisfied with it! I'm actually in the progress of doing prime, but the big ones take up so much time... So I took my japanese Bumblebee and modded the feet. Then I decided what the hell, repaint!

    Man this thing has seen better days. I used copper for rust and some brown-drab color for plaster. Topped it off with a black wash. (I forgot the macro settings in the last pic :(

    He looks so much better now! And the foot mod is very simple to do and IMO looks better than the flappy feet.

    Look out! It's Barricade! As you can see the Stikfas Sam looks a lot better next to bot mode bumblebee scale-wise
