    Nice paint job, but I think some white stripes would be a nice touch too.

    Or just the exposed side in bot mode of the knee pad. That was the only thing I noticed was that in robot, didn't see enough blue to really kick that G1 feeling.

    Still a very nice paint app though!

    /\ Wow. Two whole posts as a member, and both slam the movies.
    Nice.

    As to the subject at hand, I really like the attention to detail you've put into this piece. The up-close detail shot is impressive.
    My only real nit-pick is that in picture 4, the red of the truck should have carried on up to the grille instead of being the triangular silver bit that it is. It kind of looks out of place.

    It is a nice custom but I would have carried the blue over onto the wheel fenders that are over the leg pieces. It looks like too much red even though the legs are painted blue underneath.
