    A few touch ups are still needed but I was just wanted to post him so much.

    He is originally Generations Wheeljack. I gave him an italian red (looked orange to me in the jar) and silver paint scheme. My nephew said he looked like an apple and the name AppleJack just stuck.

    I also hollowed out his head and used 2 left-over surface mount LEDs from my motorcycle dashboard. I butted them together facing towards the ears in hopes it would light them up like he was talking.

    For now a few phone pics...

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate the comments. The camera is really doing him some justice though!

    I updated the first post with some pictures of his eyes lit up. I'll get some better pictures with an actual camera after I finish the touch ups.
