    Ok,so where to begin on him.

    He's always been depicted as a G1 Autobot with a similar transformation to Sideswipe,his vehicle mode is a 1968 Dodge Charger.He's hard headed and hot headed.He's leader of my fan group The Crushers(more on that later).

    So his base was Cyb Downshift since he's a muscle car,he was done right after Downshift came out,he needs touch ups bad but I will be redoing him using Movie Big Daddy since he's already primarily black.

    I have yet to name his Mini-Con,which is Armada Rollbar.His blade is from Cyb Def Hot Shot and his rifle is from a KO G1 Sky Gary.

    Any comments or crits are welcome.

    EDIT:Added a shot of my fan group The Crushers.

    Your welcome Overhaulimus. I thought Rev-Up sounded cool enough for your group. Can't wait for the finished custom.

    Here's a breakdown of the characters and the molds I'm using for them.

    Diesel(Deluxe Classics Prime with G1 Highbrow's guns)
    Twin Twist(Cyb Scattorshot,gonna have some heavy mods on him)
    Cliffjumper(Movie Cliffy)-This one might be changed out for another character.
    Dai Atlas(Uni King Atlas,gonna do a slight repaint on him)
    Jetstorm(Uni Treadbolt,again slight repaint and might get a new head from Scuplt-Bot)
    Roadbuster(Uni Roadbuster,nothing going on here except for adding the upgrade set)

    I really like this! Fan characters rock, and you've done a nice job with this!

    I think I could advise touching up some areas the green is showing through. Speaking of green, I think painting the green areas on the cannons a different color would further help separate this guy from Cyb Downshift/Universe Big Daddy.

    Anyways, those things are pretty minor. I hope we get to see more work from you in the future :thumb
