    So I loved this mold since the first time I saw it but havent picked it up because I knew I'd want to paint it. Now the semester is over, I had at it and i'm so happy with how it turned out. This figure went from eh.. to dirty, angry and very intimidating looking. Oh and I tossed the grabbers or whatever that weapon was supposed to be. No autobot would want to to be in the way of those wicked fully automatic armor piercing guns you and i might call hands....

    I see this truck as something Jesse James would drive with the flat black paint application and a overall badass look. This truck is definitely not right off the Dodge show floor..


    Enjoy :)

    Not bad, bot mode could use a little extra to break up the black/silver. maybe a little gold or dark blue, somethin.

    I prefer glossy paint, but it's obvious that wasn't your intent. Very nice work.

    I think right now, the "hot thing" for trucks is for everything to be a matte black (though I believe that would include the grill and rims, which might've made this a bit too boring), so squee. ^^

    Oddly enough, I REALLY want to see this guy alongside that supposed Arcee repaint that's headed our way.

    I think the chest area could use some gold to break things up.

    Very clean, very uniform and, in vehicle mode, very subtle. Great work, dude. :)

    good job...I really like that the gun slits are accentuated properly. Also the windshield is nicely darker, but still looks functional.

    That is really, really nice. While the matte black fits his personality, what truly gets me is how refined it looks compared to his riced-out, graphics plastered normal paintjob. I actually don't mind the lack of highlights in bot mode. It provides a sorta consistency between the two modes, I think. Makes him look more seamless, I guess.

    I think it looks fantastic.

    A little color here and there to break up the monochrome would work... but I also think the whole black-and-white thing probably looks a HELL of a lot cooler in person than in pictures...

    Plus... ignore the bio on his cardback and he's badass. Read the bio and he's more emo. I think it's perfect fitting for him.
