    I've had the idea to make a movie Hoist ever since Long Arm came out. I mean his head is exactly what Hoist looks like too lol.

    Well I started working on him yesterday and this is what I have so far. It's just a WIP right now so I know some parts need to be touched up so PLEASE don't tell me that I missed some spots here or there.



    here's some pics

    Also the green is a nice "John Deere" green and it is not as light as the pics make it seem.

    I can't wait to finish this guy!

    That looks sweet, but i think it would look better if you painted the white hoist parts black, with a little yellow detailing (the little squares on the main arm)
    I Think that would fit with the whole Jhon Deer look

    Looking forward to the finished product.

    Great job on the paint. Be sure to darken the white interior too.

    Actually, the head was for Hoist. In the game, Longarm was a decepticon with a camera head and Hoist was a green and silver version with (something close to) the head we got on Longarm.

    Looks good man, i had the same idea i just have had money problems and not able to pick up long-arm yet. Where did you get the green and does anyone know if Delta is going to make any stickers for such a bot like they did for a movie trailbreaker????

    nice, man. I'd try and do it like that PSP screenshot. I forgot he was in the game when I owned it.

    yes it is that color, thanks for the comments!

    About the screenshot, I like it like that but it seems that truck mode is more like Dropkick then the actual Long Arm toy. Don't worry i'll make mine look really cool :)
