    Just added a few details to make it more real. A light drybrush on the bot mode helps to differentiate the limbs.

    Hope you like it.

    I like it. Nice work.

    I do think the fenders should be black like in the reference photo.

    Thank you very much. The problem with so little figures is that you can't put all the details in them. The black fenders and black wheels will make a big black brick on the rear of the vehicle. In the reference pic the fenders seem to be made of some kind of canvas, but they look solid on the figure, so I left them stay unpainted.

    If you keep this up, I'm going to have to get all of these and try this myself!

    Thanks to all for your comments, I really appreciate them.
    anovasinn, I thought about the black wash, but I went for the dirty look with my Brawl, so I wanted a clean look this time.
    SQ7, I have two more Legends to show, so prepare your pencils. I will love to see what you can do with these figures, so go for it.

    These are really cool! Its amazing how subtle your improvements are and how provacative they end up because of em! You'd think Hasbro woulda just done that to begin with.

    Stikfas, Shockinis, junker Minicons? Or if you're really adventurous, you can make your own using wire, round beads and a rotary tool with a spherical burr.

    Were it not for the costs for additional paint apps (thus making the price more expensive), they would have.

    Speaking of Barricade, I have finished my own one. Just need to take some pics. I haven't added articulations, because there is no space below the car with the chest and upper legs. I just replaced the hands thanks to the space in the back of the car. And of course almost completely repainted it (it was the blue version).

    Now please tell us, what are your plans? Where are you planning to add the ball joints?

    And as said before, use some minicons for the balljoints.

    Good luck with your project.
